  • 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...
  • I find Life Coaching Academy a balance of a professional outfit and a close-knit community of fellow coaches-in-training.
  • I have enjoyed the course. It has opened up a few interesting topics and confirmed many points for myself.
  • Peter and the LCA bent over backwards to support me, and the turnaround time was always very quick, professional and complete.
  • 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
  • I highly recommend the LCA as your preferred coaching academic choice!
  • 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 can't recommend the LCA enough as it changed me in a beautiful way, I learned to push my own boundaries, face my fears and find the confidence to overcome in challenge that is coming in my way
