If you are interested in becoming a coach yourself, or building your practice, I've created many business coaching tools to help you do just that. These tools are currently used by coaches in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and all through Australia. In fact - they are currently downloaded or shipped to about 80 around the world!

Is coaching regulated in Australia?
There is no national or international statutory or regulating body for life coaches. The basic fact is that anyone, with or without prior 'training' or experience, can set themselves up as a life coach. However, it's still important for you to present yourself in a professional way to attract and keep your clients. And we encourage training and mentoring for any serious coach.
