ANZI and ICF accredited
Having decided to start up my own executive coaching business, I realized I would need specialized training that would provide me with a professional and accredited coaching qualification - which was my prime reason for choosing LCIA. I completed the standard Cert IV Certificate in Coaching and also achieved the Diploma of Coaching along with my specialty stream - Certificate of Executive Coaching. Throughout the process I was very impressed with the level of support on offer as well as the high calibre of the LCIA trainers. For these reasons, I have no hesitation in recommending LCIA as the first port of call to anyone who is embarking on a career in coaching.

SMAC - Strategic Mentoring & Coaching
After many years of assisting others with their personal and business goals, one of those people has suggested I look into the life coaching courses - specifically The Life Coaching Institute. No matter what was going on in my personal life, the staff at the LCIA have ALWAYS made me feel welcome and supported. The staff at LCIA have consistently (throughout the whole 5 years!) provided me with up-todate and relevant information and advice - but more importantly: they didn't treat me like a number but as a human being who was dealing with a lot at that time and needed support and understanding. I cannot praise the staff at the Institute more: they were my shining light and a consistent voice during these challenging yet very rewarding times.
