How to Become a Life Coach

So, you are thinking of becoming a life coach, how exciting! We have been life coaches ourselves and training life coaches for the last 20 years and it is one of the most rewarding and transformational experiences you can ever have. We pride ourselves on the fact that our life coaching courses are completely unique and are tailored to the needs of the thousands of people that we have worked with both personally and in groups.

At Evolve Now! we believe that the life coaching experience should be nurturing to the heart and soul of our clients whilst still getting practical results that make a difference in their daily lives.

If you would like to become a life coach through Evolve Now! you will be qualified as a Passion and Purpose Coach, a Masculine and Feminine Coach, a Matrix Therapies Coach and an Archetypal Coach.

What these processes will allow you to do is assist your client to clear away any negative influences that they have had from parents, teachers, bullies or family members in their past, as well as clear negative emotions and beliefs. We also teach you how to discover a client’s passion and purpose so they can have a fulfilling future.

The beauty of our courses is that you also personally experience clearing the past and finding your own passion and purpose on the journey. All our trainers have incredible life experience as well as rigorous training in NLP and Evolve Now! Life Coaching Courses.

Pip McKay has taken them through two years of a one-on-one coach training and mentoring program, so you can rest assured that the people that are training you are of the highest calibre of integrity and the greatest standards of professional development and training.

Through the independent coaching body, the International Institute of Complimentary Therapies (IICT) and to gain insurance you need at least 100 hours of face-to-face training. In light of this, if you would like to become a qualified life coach that is recognised by this independent body you will be required to do both our Evolve Now! Level 1 and Evolve Now! Level 2 courses.


Level 1A Passion & Purpose Coaching


Level 1B: Masculine and Feminine Coaching


Level 1C: Matrix Therapies Coaching.

These three courses give you 63 hours of face-to-face training. Therefore, to qualify as a Life Coach you will need to do the Level 2 course as well.

Level 2 comprises of three 4-day retreat courses:


Level 2A: Manifestation & Love Coaching


Level 2B Growth & Abundance Coaching


Level 2C: Transformation & Influence Coaching

This gives you an extra 84 hours of face-to-face training. So, the total for Level 1 and Level 2 is 147 hours, which is 47 hours above the requirement. We do these extra hours to ensure standards but also to ensure you don’t need to do any at home training to qualify. We do provide you with numerous DVDs and CDs to enhance your learning. Watching this extra material is not a prerequisite in order to qualify – you can gain all the education and training and practise you need inside the courses themselves. You can do our courses over 1, 2 or 3 years to suit your schedule and we have courses that run in Brisbane, Sydney and live online via Zoom for your convenience. If you would like to find out more about the content of the courses we recommend you come to our 1-day events on offer where you will have a fantastic educational day where you will gain many tools that you can apply immediately both professionally and personally. We also have more information about our courses on the Programs page.

How to Become Qualified in NLP?

There are three different NLP Trainings:


NLP Practitioner Training – 7 days


NLP Master Practitioner Training – 9 days


NLP Trainers Training – 14 days including an evaluation

These course lengths are set by the Australian Association of NLP and IICT. Shorter courses than this are not considered to be qualifications. However, when you have completed the Evolve Now! Level 1C Matrix Therapies Coaching three-day course, two days of this course can be considered as prior learning for NLP Practitioner Training. When you do the Evolve Now! Level 1B three-day course, three of these days can be considered as prior learning for NLP Master Practitioner Training. Because of this recognition of prior learning, you do receive substantial savings if you come and enrol in our NLP courses after having completed the Evolve Now! Level 1 Trainings.
