Global training based in beautiful Perth, Australia!


This is our flagship course, fully accredited with the International Coach Federation (ICF) as an Accredited Coach Training Programme (ACTP).


It's a 10 month in-depth course which gives you the skills, knowledge and understanding to work as a coach, mentor and facilitator.

It comprises a minimum of 168 coach specific training hours with further self-study to give you a solid, grounded understanding of the art and science of coaching, mentoring, facilitating and training. It also gives you the skills and knowledge to create your own training, work with groups as well as individuals, speak from the heart in front of an audience and create and deliver workshops.

The main focus is working from the heart not just the mind. We are passionate about mindfulness, and we take it a step further to heart-full-ness where you engage with clients from a space of unconditional positive regard, kindness, love and wisdom.

The learning is a blended style which includes:

  • 3 intensive workshops in person
  • 18 fortnightly live webinars where you study from the comfort of your own home
  • Practical coaching practice with your fellow students in supervised phone group work
  • Set work to study in your own time - such as recordings of coaching to listen to and reflect on then discuss in class and reading course materials
  • Monthly one-on-one mentoring sessions
  • A series of one-on-one mentor-coaching and coaching supervision sessions during your work with volunteer clients
  • And, as the foundation, a deep engagement with our philosophy of "Know Thyself" through a series of self-reflection exercises to underpin your learning

This gives you a deep and rounded experience to be a coach, mentor, facilitator and workshop creator who is comfortable to work deeply with clients and able to handle a broad range of client situations with equanimity and harmony.

The learning is through enjoyable practical activities combined with reflection, reading, listening, discussing and writing.
