Modern Stress is an Epidemic 

Life is getting busier and busier – and more demanding than ever before. As fewer people prioritise self-care and restoration, illness, disease and dissatisfaction are becoming more prevalent.

We’ve blended the best transformational tools into one unique coaching qualification AND we teach you the ‘business’ of coaching so you not only value your skills and know your worth, but can attract the right clients and grow a business and lifestyle you love.

While learning to help others create real change from the inside out, you’ll also be learning how to implement mind-body practices and use holistic tools to rewrite your own mindset and choose a life of freedom..


We Need to Integrate Mind and Body

We all need time out to soothe our soul and recharge our body, but HOW can people create this space in their lives when the focus is always on external demands instead internal needs?

This is where a holistic life coach and mind-body practitioner is so unique in understanding the strain that chronic stress and lack of meaning can place on the mind, body, spirit and emotions of their clients.

We encourage daily self-care, self-awareness, personal responsibility and holistic practices that can undo and reverse many of these conditions by first addressing the needs and beliefs of the person as a whole..

Our Unique Approach

We don’t merely want to teach you how to be a powerful and transformational coach who’s business and marketing savvy. We aim to arm you with understanding of the mind-body connection, how to identify disempowering beliefs, and challenge and reprogram the subconscious mind so your clients – and you – can get unstuck and love yourself more!

It’s incredibly important to understand the multi-level layers of human thinking and behaviour, and how to ‘rewire’ the brain for effective and lasting behaviour change.

With this knowledge, you’ll be able to confidently coach within a holistic framework using neuroscience, positive psychology and mind-body practices to your advantage.

Be a coach who gets results and help your clients reach their goals permanently.

These are the types of students who study with us:

Why Holistic Life Coaching?

In this fast-paced, overworked and chronically stressed world there is an increasing desire to live a more purposeful, fulfilling and joyous life. This is evident in the growing number of people and businesses turning towards transformational life, health and wellness coaches in their attainment of meaning, growth and change.

Have you noticed the collective shift towards more holistic approaches in achieving a healthier and happier mindset and lifestyle? People want more than they ever have before… more love, abundance, opportunity, career choices, deeper relationships, vibrant health and greater financial freedom.

Neuroscience is finally reaching mainstream healthcare, while the health and wellness arena is booming with a newfound independence away from outdated approaches that often miss the bigger picture. We can no longer ignore the deeper layers of human existence, or neglect to include mind-body practices into mainstream healthcare and wellbeing approaches.

A lot of people wish their lives, career or relationships were different. They might even know what they need to change but haven’t made any changes. The fact is, we’d all like to change something but we’re not always ready and willing to do the changing. Mostly because we don’t know ‘how’ and we’re afraid of the unknown. This is where a trained Holistic Life Coach & Mind-Body Practitioner has a huge advantage.

“I am absolutely loving the course. The most interesting part of the course for me so far has been module 2 with so much great information about the subconscious and decision making. The most interesting personal breakthroughs are happening for me as I have started to put into place some of the concepts about changing beliefs in the deep subconscious around specific needs in life. As I discovered in the second module, I am in a place of transition in my life so the course has been so beneficial so far in enabling me to work with my subconscious to change my attitudes towards myself. Even though its been a short time, the results have been amazing.” – Rebecca G

Q – Can I be a Coach even though my own life needs work?

A – YES! Your clients don’t want someone who is ‘perfect’ and has all the answers. They want someone who they can RELATE to and who gets them – who they can feel understood by, and connected to.

As you progress through the program you’ll be growing and getting to know yourself on a deeper level, and learning the tools and techniques to evolve in your own mind and body that will result in making changes in your life and relationships. No-one said your life must be ‘perfect’ to be an effective and inspiring coach.

Q – What are the course dates for 2017?

A – You can now enrol at any time! Complete the course and be qualified and coaching within 4 months, OR you can study at your own pace with 18 months to complete your studies around life, family and commitments. Either way you will immediately receive your student login details upon confirmed enrolment, along with your coach mentor, access to our private Facebook group and all the live coaching calls, masterclass and webinars!

Note: Each module includes a 2 hour webinar workshop available inside each module lesson, PLUS live group coaching sessions, coaching interviews, practical coaching videos, and regular masterclasses with guest presenters in various professional fields and ongoing support from your Institute mentors.

Q – Who is this certification course for?

A – Our in-depth holistic coaching certification is the ideal start or advancement for a career helping others. If you’re a qualified professional in areas such as functional medicine, nutrition, healthcare, fitness, yoga, wellbeing or teaching, you can enhance your current practice or service by including coaching, neuroscience, habit change and positive psychology. Our course is also a great fit if you want to share your life experience to help others in a positive and affirming way, or you’d like to challenge yourself and expand your own personal development and growth.

You’ll learn how to utilise your skills and talents in a uniquely transformational way. What’s more, you can work from home, set your own hours and prioritise family commitments.

Q – How long will it take to complete the course?

A – The course is designed to be completed in 4 months, however if you need a little more time, we can help you. Upon graduation you’ll receive a professional certificate of completion and be able to gain membership and insurance with the International Institute for Complimentary Therapists (IICT) in 27 countries! The course is the equivalent to 150 hours of study plus minimum 10 hours of practical coaching. We’ve left out unnecessary fluff and jargon so you are only learning the real and necessary tools, methods and strategies to be a successful holistic life and mind-body coach.

Q – Can I coach people after completing the certification course?

A – You absolutely can! In fact you’ll be trainee coaching clients from week four of the course and racking up your coaching hours as you progress! By actioning your new skills and knowledge straight into practice, you’ll grow your confidence and coaching prowess tenfold than if you waited until you finished, or felt ‘ready’. Most of our graduates start taking paying clients before they’re finished – especially when they’re adding coaching into an existing profession, or when they’re practice clients are so happy with the results that they want to work with them straight away!

Q – Do you have to complete each module in one week? And is each module like a workbook assignment type?

A – We don’t want to overwhelm anyone so the module tasks are designed to help you feel like you’re also growing, stretching and being coached while you’re doing the work that you’ll expect your clients to do. So if you need more time than a week, you’ve got it! Having said that, your module tasks are much more practical than research based, so don’t worry about having to spend hours and hours reading and referencing! We’re more about the ‘doing and being’.

There are 3 beautifully designed fillable PDF workbooks – one for each stage of the course. As you come to each question or task in your modules, you’ll be able to type your answers directly into your workbook, essentially completing your course assessments as you progress. There is no final exam, but you’ll have amassed practical coaching hours and confidence, which is much more important. No new content is released in weeks 5 or 10 as you’ll be putting your newfound insights, awareness and skills into practice with clients straight away and getting feedback to improve your skills!

Q – When do you run the live webinars and are they available for replay, or is it mandatory to be there?

A – The weekly module webinars are scheduled in Brisbane, AEST (2pm NZ). Yes, full replay videos are embedded within each module so you can easily go back and watch any of the live lectures whenever you need to. Attendance is not mandatory because we understand it’s not always possible, and we’d rather teach you how to reduce your stress, not add to it! Live group coaching sessions are run throughout every course.

Q – Is there plenty of support if you are not understanding a particular module? If I do this course I want to put in 100%, including being the annoying student who asks a million questions!

A – You bet there is – we love questions! Our team of coach mentors are available to assist you whenever you have issues or concerns. Learning via distance can often feel overwhelming and we really don’t want anyone to feel like there’s no help when they need it. As long as you reach out when you need to, we will be here to support you as much as you need. We regularly check in on you as we want all our students and graduates to complete their studies and have the coaching business they set out to.

Q – Is the course accredited or approved by any professional organisations?

A – Yes! As coaching is not a regulated industry, anyone can call themselves a coach, with or without specific training or registration. This is a major reason why it’s in your best interest to gain a recognised qualification and learn how you can be the best coach to your clients. Accreditation is generally provided by a governing body (although there are some associations providing ‘accreditation’), whereas ‘approval’ is industry specific and allows for greater freedom in providing the latest holistic and science-backed approaches without strict regulations.

We choose to be industry approved to provide autonomy and integrity to all our coaching courses. We are undergoing rigorous approval processes for several other key organisations within the coaching, fitness and wellness industries to further approve and accredit this course. As we gain new accreditations and approvals, you will be able to add these to your registrations too.

Q – What professional organisations can I gain membership to after completing the course?

A – Our Holistic Life Coach & Mind-Body Practitioner certificate course is approved by the International Institute for Complimentary Therapists (IICT). This recognition enables you to gain registration and insurance in 27 countries around the world! We are undergoing rigorous approval processes for several other key organisations within the coaching industry to further approve and accredit this course. As we gain new accreditations and approvals, you will be able to add these to your registrations.

Q – What support is offered to me from the Institute after completing the certification course?

A – Welcome to your new mentor and support group! When you begin your studies, you’ll be invited into our private Facebook Group “Holistic Coaches Light the Way” where our graduates and students have access to private Live Facebook trainings, support and resources to help you continue to build your skills, knowledge and business with like-minded souls, supporting you every step.

Q – Are payment plans offered and what are the methods of payment?

A – YES! We know not everybody can afford to pay the full enrolment fee upfront, even with a discount, as some people need help to balance the books whilst they study. We really do want to help you realise your dream of working from home, setting your own hours, and creating the time and financial freedom do spend more time doing the things you love. So we have created two generous payment terms that spread your payments out over the duration of your study into smaller monthly manageable amounts. Secure payment options are through Paypal, debit and various Credit Cards. All prices are in Australian dollars and include GST.

Q – Can I book directly through the Institute via phone?

A – YES! We can certainly enrol you over the phone. Just have your personal payment details ready (we do not keep these details on file).

Q – Can I get general support from teachers during the course?

A – Absolutely! Our awesome team of passionate mentor coaches are here to help you succeed. However big or small the question, we’re here to give you the information and guidance you need, when you need it.

Q – Are there any post-graduate offerings? I would definitely like to look into more study to give me even more knowledge about the holistic side of coaching, so do you have further courses to grow my skills?

A – We sure do! Although please note, by completing this certification course you will be fully qualified without needing further study to get started. If you would like to continue learning and developing, we are regularly adding to our specialised courses for professional certification or personal development. Postgraduate courses for further study and higher qualifications are being written now to upgrade your Certificate in Holistic Life Coach and Mind-Body Practitioner to a Diploma level OR to specialise in a certain area of coaching i.e. a specific niche if that’s what you’d like to do.

Q – If I need to cancel my course, what are my options?
