Coaching Foundations

Introduction to Coaching Course | 10 training hours toward ICF accreditation


Join a group of like-minded people who share your passion for mastering coaching skills and learning to coach at the highest level. The coaching industry is growing, and with more 'life' coaches than ever before, it's vital to master the coaching skills that will make you an excellent coach and leader. 

On Transforming Conversations you will learn to coach by coaching. You will learn just enough supporting theory, get lots of practice through our coaching intensives and connect, learn, share and receive feedback in a supportive environment. This all-in-one approach will make you an exceptional coach whether you are starting a career as a coach or integrating a coaching style into your role.

A closer look

I loved the way the group worked together - it played well to my values of collaboration and sharing. I really appreciated the sharing of personal stories that brought to life the sort of situations we might encounter doing this work.


The Simply Coaching team will teach you core coaching foundations aligned to ICF standards supporting you to practice excellence in coaching safely and ethically, putting you on the right track to accredit as a coach if you wish. The coach training you receive will provide you with a solid foundation to develop your coaching practice over time. 

Our course is designed around the principles of how adults learn best, and each live online session comprises theory, practice, feedback, and reflection.


You will also have the option to participate in a coaching session with one of our accredited coaches so you will experience the power of coaching first hand. There is an additional charge of $99 to include the coaching session. 

The course is delivered entirely online, no travel required

The entire program is delivered live online so that you can participate from home or work.
​We will share the course manual and other resources before the course starts.


Rather than digitise our content, we deliver all training hours live online. We know our students learn best when they can speak with experienced coaches, practice and apply learning in the moment. We will also pair you with a learning buddy for check-ins and support throughout the program.


Please note - this course is for beginners  

Please note if you are already a trained coach this course is not for you. This course is best suited for those at the beginning of their coaching journey and people who want to discern whether coaching is for them. 

This course absolutely exceeded my expectations. Because Kirsty and Alex are so experienced I saw fluency, calm and partnership in structure and content planning. I appreciated the tools and exercises that focused my intentions for the sessions and the practical applications. I appreciated the invitation to get out of my comfort zone.

What's included?

 If you are not sure if this is for you, we encourage you to have a chat beforehand. We promise there will be no hard sell - we will simply talk through whether this is right for you. And if not we might be able to recommend some alternatives.
