The concept of a life coach is nothing new. Think for a moment about the significance of the karate sensei, team coach, professor, grandparent or CEO. These mentor-like roles are historically vital to us because they underpin learning, achievement, values, performance & progress through support & insightful guidance. It’d be very difficult to imagine a successful sports person without a coach & living life is no different.
Typically tapped into during a transitional phase of life, a Coach is a partnership based upon support, synergy, trust & complete confidentiality. They have one goal in mind: improving your quality of life. Coaches make use of their experience, listening skills & a non-judgmental attitude to provide you with encouragement, advice & strategies that help achieve life goals.
Grounded on the principle that potential knows no limits, coaching involves posing strategic, probing & intuitive questions to connect you to a deep resource within. You’ll start to feel more comfortable taking bigger strides to get results & transform your life for the better. In a world full of adversity & uncertain futures, it's comforting to know that there is someone out there to lend a helping hand.
Go with the best. Our Life Coaches have completed a Diploma or Certificate in Life Coaching that’s recognised & accredited with either the Australian Skills Quality Authority or the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Coaching (ANZI Coaching). They must pass our accreditation standards & be an active member of the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Coaching (ANZI Coaching) or the International Coaching Federation.
While Therapy deals with the past & handling emotional pain, Coaching deals with the near future & devising a plan of action toward a specific goal. It focuses on an individual’s entire life as it relates to goal setting, creating outcomes & making change.
The assumption is that individuals are capable of generating their own solutions & the Coach provides you with a supportive discovery framework with emphasis on action, accountability & follow-through. It’s all about personal/professional growth & development based upon initiating change as well as establishing a sense of purpose & direction.

Coaching is a training or development process via which an individual is supported while achieving a specific personal or professional competence result or goal. The individual receiving coaching may be referred to as coachee.
Occasionally, the term coaching may be applied to an informal relationship between two individuals where one has greater experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the other goes through a learning process, but coaching differs from mentoring by focusing upon competence specifics, as opposed to general overall development.
Some coaches use a style in which they ask questions and offer opportunities that will challenge the coachee to find answers from within him/herself. This facilitates the learner to discover answers and new ways of being based on their values, preferences and unique perspective.
