"“The Life Coaching Academy adopts a very innovative way to learning and the pacing and structure of the learning process allows students to really understand what they are studying and apply in real life (in my case, my workplace). The residential weekend, book critique, research project, assessment questionnaires, webinars, triads and mentoring program provided a solid foundation for developing coaching skills and my ability to set up my own practice. The insights gained from the webinars and the other projects and assessments really helped in refining my coaching skills throughout the process. The professionalism and friendly approach of the LCA stands out above the other institutes I have contacted. This was pretty much seen from first interaction with Lynda and all throughout my program of studies. Peter was very helpful in exploring options for me to complete my program of studies at the most acceptable / efficient timeframe without compromising the quality of my learning and experience. He also provided a solid checkpoint for me and was very flexible with things. My mentor provided solid support to me throughout the program. My triad mates were very supportive and encouraging as well. The LCA staff supported me all throughout my journey. The entire program allowed me to maximise learning opportunities and build my confidence. I recommend the LCA to anyone who wants to embark on a journey of self discovery and develop their coaching capabilities.” "
"I feel that I am a very well qualified coach and have learned a very broad spectrum of the aspects of coaching and can go in to any situation and confidently coach clients. The course really does equip you to start working once you have finished.
The course reading material was very useful and informative.
The trainers and those running the LCA were excellent, very knowledgeable, passionate, inspiring and helpful. I felt the level of support provided was excellent and nothing was ever too much trouble. I always felt the questions I raised were answered well
The weekend residential courses were very beneficial and it was great to have interaction with other people on the course.
The mentor programme was also very valuable.

"During my time studying with the LCA I have experienced true professional service and very fast responses to my questions.
Nothing was ever too much and I have enjoyed chatting to Pete Jordaan on various aspects of the course. He kept me moving forward and made things a lot easier once I knew how to approach a specific subject/project or assessment. This enabled me to complete the course in about 8 months part time, which was my goal. Very happy to recommend the LCA to anyone interested in becoming a Life Coach,just give them a call and they will work with you on how to make it happen. The course material and information was put together well and helped me understand the different aspects of life coaching. My tip, get started and then just keep doing a little bit every day and create a mini support group with your fellow students (this was vital to my success)."
"I have enjoyed the course. It has opened up a few interesting topics and confirmed many points for myself.
The paired activities are great and build a better understanding of topics covered.
The course has a good flow to it with topics that are highly relevant to wellness.
Looking forward to getting started in the wellness industry.
"I have found the Wellness Coaching Course very comprehensive & meaningful. I liked the fact it limits participation to 6 people because the conversations are deeper & more real when dealing with often very personal & sensitive material. I would HIGHLY recommend you do it! “ JUST DO IT"
"After much research into coaching institutions and speaking to other coaches about their experiences I decided on L.C.A the main reason being that it felt more authentic without lots of hard sell material added or pushiness. I enjoyed the intake weekend with some great Coaches running the course. The course has added new knowledge and insight to support my clients though my PT Business which is 13 years young, and although weight loss of the body starts with weight loss of the mind all the extra tools and learning experiences achieved though the LCA course to further support my clients has been awesome. The course has also taught me some valid lessons on getting the best out of me and I hope to add to my knowledge though L.C.A in the near future.
"The Wellness Coaching Training provided excellent comprehensive education, tools and resources for use in Wellness Coaching practice with individuals and in Corporations. The integration of the coaching process relating to ourselves as individuals gave a greater insight into the client experience and an active involvement in our own Wellness process. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to move into the Wellness business and those persons working in Human Services. A very enjoyable, thought provoking and interesting training program. "
"I did quite a bit of research into the different life coaching courses on offer before enrolling with the Life Coaching Academy. The main reasons I chose the LCA included the weekend intake at the START of the course, the support offered, the cert IV was accredited and the interaction with the LCA during my enquires indicated they were the right choice for me. I could also re attend the weekend intake sessions in the future at no cost (other than my personal expenses). I have spoken to other coaches recently who completed their qualifications at other institutions and it has reconfirmed to me that I made the right choice. I am so glad I trusted my instincts and went with the LCA. To be honest this course has changed my life!"
"LCA Life Coaching gives a good insight into the coaching industry, leading you in the right path to becoming a fully developed, professional life coach. I was impressed by the quality of the course material and the time frame you are given. Throughout your training in this course, you are constantly growing in knowledge and developing in all aspects in your life coaching career, becoming and reflecting the image of a true life coach. Thank you LCA for being there.You guys are great."
"A course not only full of enjoyment but very informative and above all practical indeed. It was in fact a life coaching experience for me too. The course was organised perfectly with online cutting edge facilities assisted by friendly and helpful staff members at all levels. I can only highly recommend it for whoever wishing to make a transformation in his/her life and gear up to share the experience gained through The Life Coaching Academy with others who are in need. The essence of the course is to become an excellent listener, building trust and rapport by asking right questions that people can help themselves to sort out their own issues."
"I came into the LCA course already ‘converted’, having been previously coached by a member of the LCA alumni and experiencing real change first hand. This sparked a desire in me to assist others to realise their goals and reach their potential. The LCA provided the perfect framework for me to gain the skills and knowledge I needed to do this in an environment where my thinking was stimulated. I was motivated and supported by not only the LCA staff, but by the other students who were also completing the course with me. This is a course that will lead you to a career where you can help bring about positive change in the lives of others, and simultaneously feel the positive effects in your own."
"Obtaining my life-coaching certificate from The Life Coaching Academy was a positive and progressive experience, and due to the depth of the course, I feel that I am confidant to start my career as a coach with extensive knowledge and understanding. The online portal for students is not only a fantastic tool to help you through the course but also to refer to as you embark on your journey as a coach.
I would also like to thank my mentor, Ina Trood. Her passion and motivation for coaching was evident in all our sessions and because of her experience and constructive feedback I feel that she was a catalyst in my initiating personal breakthroughs as well as providing direction throughout my course.

"As coaches we are in a unique and privileged position to work with clients to assist them in achieving their desired goals. Learning the necessary skills to do so, is managed methodically and professionally by the Life Coaching Academy (LCA). Further, LCA is both supportive and flexible in the manner in which this learning takes place. Beyond the professionalism and support of LCA, the skills and experiences I attained from my studies enabled me to better understand and communicate with my friends, family and colleagues; a truly life changing experience..."
"I chose the LCA after investigating many options. It turned out to be a great choice as I completed my program well within the prescribed timeframe and have now added the set of skills I obtained to my existing business with great results. The academy support services were always there to give me encouragement and advice when I needed it. Thank you to the staff at the LCA."
"I am very thankful and appreciative of the support and guidance of Peter, Lynda and all the team at the Life Coaching Academy. Completing the course has been a major step in my career goals and I feel very empowered and confident with all the knowledge and strategies that I feel I have gained through my experience with the LCA. The course not only has helped me with running my business and assisting my clients more effectively but it has also given me some great tools to aid in my own personal development."
"A former LCA graduate inspired me during my own personal coaching experience, and with a natural passion for positivity including a strong desire to assist others I felt compelled to advance my own learning and knowledge. I undertook a life coaching course with LCA which has enabled me to develop the necessary frameworks to inspire change for others. The Coaching Mastery Weekend Intensive was an extremely inspiring and empowering experience, a perfect foundation in experiential learning and fabulous opportunity to connect to likeminded people. In facilitating a supportive learning environment LCA provides a great opportunity for training and development."
"I am so grateful to have taken the journey in becoming a qualified coach with the LCA. From the course content, to the Coaching Mastery Weekend Intensive, and the quality of trainers and mentors, the LCA delivers a great framework of training and development for the aspiring coach. I found the course to be extremely informative, inspiring and it definitely provided the kind of personal challenge I was seeking at the time. The experience was a powerful one that certainly facilitated my own self development helping me transform my own life and I feel humbled and privileged to now be in the position to help and support others to do the same."
"Flashing strobe ceiling lights, jack hammers, sub zero temperatures and fawlty towers type accommodation. Did that deter us - no! Deb in all her awesomeness Hann, battled through and saved the day. The lights were dimmed, the jack hammers stopped, temperature was increased and we had a bottle of complimentary wine at dinner. What more could we ask. Oh yes, it was a truly inspirational weekend.""
"The Life Coaching Academy continues to be committed to high quality Coach education and development. I am proud to be a coach trained by this excellent academy."
"Thank you – I am delighted to have completed this work and look forward to my session with Deb.
I have enjoyed the course – despite all my employment changes, housing changes, and family drama’s - and learnt much of relevance including something I wish I had learnt much earlier. It has been a great personal journey.
Meeting people from such varied backgrounds has been a joy and I have maintained contact with some. I am looking forward to building up my own coaching business.
Thank you to both you and Lynda – I have always found you very helpful and pleasant when I have contacted you with a mundane problem and I have really appreciated this.

"Hello Coaching Colleagues
Over the past 18 months you have contributed to my coaching journey and personal growth. Thank you so much for your input, words of encouragement, constructive criticism, being a sounding board when I have needed it (which was often) and for just being there for me!
Without your support I would not have been able to progress to this stage and achieve my dream of launching a Life and ADHD coaching business for young people. You have all been my COACH along the way!
The journey has been slow and steady...small steps forward which over the last few months has resulted in me completing the LCA Cert IV course, Coaching Teens & College Students with ADHD with Jodi Sleeper-Triplett and my first round of Recipricoach training (which I only found out about from one of you).
With this grounding I now feel I can take a deep breath and step out into the coaching world. Today I have officially launched the Young Achievers website (www.youngachievers.net.au) ... I wanted to share this exciting milestone with you!
I am now on my way to providing coaching services......... whilst I continue to grow my skills and and gain more experience. As always any feedback, ideas or subtle prompts to keep me on track will be WELCOME!
Thanks again for championing me this far
