‘Make a difference in people’s lives and help them reach their goals
Do you like the idea of making a difference in the world? Do you like the idea of helping people? Do you like the idea of working for yourself, in your own time and at your own pace? Being a Life Coach provides you with an opportunity to get out of the 9 – 5 grind, out of the traffic, out of the boss’s hair, out of your shell, and into your own time, your own pace, your own and your difference!
A Life Coach partners with their client to assess the client’s goals, where they are at, where they want to go, and then assist to bridge that gap. Therefore, Life Coaches have very distinctive character traits. They are empathic, patient and compassionate, they also exhibit strong leadership, organisational and communication skills.

|”At my current age (65), I finally ‘woke up’ and decided to study something that would stand me in good stead should I find myself unemployed. I studied and passed my course, Entrepreneurship, much to my surprise! The support I have received from Academy of York so far has been amazing. They are truly there for their students. Ziphi (my “coach/adviser”) encouraged and supported me throughout my studies. She was so excited when she relayed the results of my first course. Passing gave me confidence to enrol for the next one, Life Coaching!! It’s such a pity I left it so late to get the confidence to study, but it’s never too late to learn. I hope my story will encourage others, irrespective of age, to study further to better themselves, even if ‘just for fun”.
”I was fairly clueless what I was getting myself into by agreeing to do correspondence studying. My tutor Michelle Germishuys was very patient, supportive and encouraging even when I did not reach deadlines on time and on days when I wanted to give up. I was treated with respect and courtesy. I am grateful that I had a chance to interact with the Course Lecturer Mr Jack Trevena. The experience was overwhelmingly good. Thank you, Academy of York, for this experience.”
”Academic of York is an excellent College, for one who is really serious of change in life. I would like to thank all members of staff who have been of help in this journey. Thank you”
