The Most Powerful Framework For Creating Results And Changing Lives (Including Yours)

Can you really create lasting change in your own life and others with our accredited life coaching courses?
Are you really able to do it (especially if I've had no previous experience)?
And what if you want to make a good living becoming a life coach. Can I realistically achieve this?

The answer to each of these questions is yes. As Thomas Edison said, "If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves". To study life coaching is to explore the art and science of helping people to make rapid changes in their lives.

The problem is there is SO much conflicting information and so many life coaching courses out there. Much of it is complex which adds stress because one might believe that they must become a guru in order to start creating change.

The truth is true transformation is not difficult. We've been training coaches since 2009 and having trained thousands of aspiring coaches, we know the problem is not the PERSON, but the PROCESS. Once you use the correct framework for achieving results, success not only becomes easy, it becomes predictable.

The good news is you can create remarkable results without needing a 1-year life coaching training diploma... and definitely without needing a "master practitioner" course, followed by another advanced "train the trainer's" course.

We want to give you the best life coaching education by giving you everything you need to change lives and have the freedom to make a living from it... in the fastest possible way. That's why we created this life coaching course to help yourself and others.

Is This Course For Me?

If you resonate with any of the following, this course is for you.

  • I want to learn tools to create changes in my own life
  • I want to pursue a highly rewarding career as a business or life coach
  • I have an existing business and want to add another income stream
  • I'm a life coach and want to add another set of skills to my toolbelt
  • I want more coaching clients. I want to coach almost ANY type of client (without feeling anxious about whether or not they will get results)
  • I want more paid coaching clients (instead of coaching people for free)
  • I'm a manager and leader and I want to empower my team through the best coaching training

How Is This Different To Other Life Coaching Courses in Australia?

There are so many LIVE or online life coaching institutes out there, but which one should you choose? Having researched dozens of life coach training in Australia (and completing many of their courses), we have found there are two types...

The Old Model of Life Coaching - The "Guru Model":

  • You attend a life coaching course and learn 25 techniques and toolsDepressed woman with head in hands
  • You feel a bit overwhelmed so you practice these tools for a total of 3 - 12 months
  • When a client has a problem, you whip out a tool and "fix" them
  • But you still don't feel confident to solve a wide variety of problems yet
  • They say you need the next level "Master Training Course", "Certificate IV in Life Coaching" or "Super blackbelt ninja 12-month diploma"!
  • A year goes by and you still don't feel confident to coach a variety of people through a variety of problems
  • You have done many one-off sessions but don't have many long-term clients because many of the tools are a quick fix

The New Model of Life Coaching - The "Empowerment Model":

  • You realise that nobody knows your client's problems better than they dobecoming a life coach
  • Your job in becoming a life coach is to empower your clients to achieve (and take responsibility for) their own results
  • You attend this ICF Certified Coach Training Program
  • You become proficient at ONE coaching model for empowering clients
  • You learn FIVE core techniques that can be applied to life or business problems alike
  • There's no pressure of being a "guru", so your confidence and clients begin growing within weeks of finishing your coach training
  • You know that "people pay for a path", and the coaching model is also used to offer clients 3, 6 or 12-month packages (instead of one-off sessions)

In this new model, the person (not the process) becomes the central focus.

It works because YOU are your own best coach. There is nobody else out there that knows your desires or problems better than you.

Whether you want to improve your life or the lives of others, this course is essential to effectively create rapid change.

Authentic Education's life coaching courses reviews

Hi Rob,

I told you guys I'd give you feedback once all the information had sunk in.

One of the best 5 days I've had. I was definitely ready (and out of options) to find the correct tools and information I needed on coaching and consulting. I am extremely grateful for Benjamin, Cham, yourself and the whole Authentic education crew. Rob was incredibly dedicated and put in 120%. He packed in a lot of educating into those 6 days.

There is so much bad information and misleading people out there and you guys aren't them. "Authentic" is a word you guys deserve to wear. The refined and well thought out coaching information you guys teach is honourable. You said it should be "simple and enjoyable" and it was.

I got so much more out of the life coaching course than I even expected. My background is being overloaded with information, techniques and tools. I came out with an understanding, skill set and motivation I wasn't even prepared for. The course was perfect for me and the overall feedback from the class was extremely positive. It was all great and I'm glad I did it. I've been applying the life coaching tools I learned and excited to be working together with clients with a perfect coaching model. I look forward to working with you guys more and raising the bar of coaching.

Thanks again!

Pick A Path

Authentic Education's life coaching courses

The past 6 weeks (after completing the life coaching course) I've felt like I'm a different person altogether. I've become more focused, productive and content than ever before. Certain pieces from the training did indeed fall into place, some even took a couple of weeks to do so. I now see that it is really a distilled, compressed body of knowledge that encompasses a lot of skills, tools and techniques that a coach needs.

I've chosen the path of starting my own business. I've been working on setting up an online presence, as well as some professional branding to present myself to clients. I've also started coaching 4 people as training, and it was very valuable. Coaching someone, to me, gives as much value as to the person I'm coaching.

For someone who has been brought up in a more closed-minded environment, it is fantastic to see so many different answers to the same question. I feel I've gained a bit of confidence with helping others, and I can see that the people I coach are getting lots of value out of it, and are experiencing results in a lot of areas of their life.

I've made a breakthrough last week when I signed up my first paid client. It was a breakthrough for me, as this marks the first time that I've actually managed to sell something, and also that that something was me. I owe this in part to everyone in this group, so a huge thank you for your support 🙂

My journey is only at the very baby steps after the life coaching course, but I feel that so much has happened already 🙂

Looking forward to keeping in touch!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I verify that this coaching course will give me ICF Accreditation?
View our course on the ICF Website here.

Will this course work with other modalities like NLP, Reiki, herbal medicine, etc?
Yes, because this course is not based on any specific modalities. Therefore, you can plug any existing experience or modalities you have into the coaching model.

Will you upsell me to another "Master prac" or "Certificate IV" or "Train the trainers" training?
No. You only need this life coach training before you have the coaching skills to empower people. We won't lead you on an endless path of "never feeling prepared enough".

Are there any pre-requisites or pre-work?
There are no pre-requisites or prior experience needed to attend. There are about 3 hours of optional pre-work.

How soon can I start coaching people?
Immediately after the 6-day life coach training course. Some people prefer to have some practise sessions for a few months before they begin charging which is fine too.

Will you teach us how to get coaching clients?
Yes, and it won't be just an extra standalone module like other life coach courses. In fact, our entire coaching model is designed to help you get clients because you will be able to coach a wide variety of problems.

How soon will I be able to replace a monthly income of say, $5000?
In between 1 to 6 months. We teach people how to offer clients "packages". These could range between $3,000 - $12,000. So just 1 package could pay for the course.

If we get stuck, how can we get support?
Once you study life coaching with us, you will get unlimited phone and email support for 6 months. You also have the support of a community of coaches. There is also the 6 monthly group coaching sessions with Benjamin J Harvey.

Do I have to do my life coaching face-to-face?
No, the great thing about becoming a life coach is you don't need an expensive office. In fact, phone or skype coaching has many advantages for both you and your personal clients including no travel time, ability to coach while travelling etc

Do you run the course in other cities such as Brisbane or Melbourne?
At this time, our life coaching courses in Australia are held in the Sydney CBD so we can be close to our head office, staff and resources.
