Should you hire a Life Coach or study our Personal Empowerment Qualification?

In the last 20 years since life coaching became an alternative to counselling and business mentoring, so many people have engaged a life or business coach to help them get ahead. The services they provide are incredible for helping you do just that.

But not all coaches are equal and not all Coaching Programs are effective. The industry is unregulated, so a person can pretty much do a weekend workshop and call themselves a life coach.  For obvious reasons, this could affect the end game for you.

One issue with the coaching industry is the lack of industry standards around the formal training and qualifications of the coach.  In an unregulated industry, it can be difficult to distinguish between a well-intentioned amateur, a glossy motivator with good marketing skills, and a qualified, experienced coach and mentor.


What do Life Coaches charge for a program?

Sadly, the people who need a coach the most, can rarely afford it.

More than ever before there is the need for personal empowerment and someone to provide guidance, wisdom and support in navigating life. Often this would be a counsellor or a psychologist but getting an appointment is near impossible with some wait lists 6-8 months long.

Blueprint Career Development is the only RTO in Australia with approval to offer a Nationally Recognised Qualification called the 10860NAT Certificate III in Personal Empowerment.  It’s the perfect solution to learning how to Be Your Own Life Coach.
