Why Train With The Coaching Academy
Professional training can never be replaced by the trial and error approach. The Coaching Academy has distilled the best practice from hundreds of professional coaches and created a coaching system that works wherever you live in the world with whoever you coach. All you do is combine the system with your own personality, skills and experience and you create a winning formula.
When you are trained by professionals you become a professional. If you are trained by amateurs, that is where you will remain!
All of The Coaching Academy’s trainers practice what they teach – they are all professional coaches with years of experience, successful businesses and clients who come back again and again. If you want to be in the same position, why not join us on The Certificate in Personal Coaching and begin to change your life!

Have you ever wondered why as a child you had all the will in the world to be a superhero or just somebody absolutely fantastic and now as a grown up you seem to have lost the will to live? We’ve lost our motivation and don’t know how to get it back.
Our state, the way in which we show in our interactions and movements, has an extraordinary influence on the course of our lives. Whether in work, politics or any other field, your state of mind has a very strong influence on your results and general feeling of happiness.

She had a successful career as a management consultant but could not stop feeling bad about herself. Through our sessions, I discovered that Lucy had a younger sister. This younger sister was the pretty one, the one who got all the boys, according to Lucy.
One of the core skills most coaches deal with is goal setting. It seems relatively straight forward, yet most of us and our clients find it hard to achieve the goals we’ve set, so let’s take a good look at why that is and what we can do about it. The most common model for goal-setting is represented by the acronym SMART – specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time based.
