Become a Life Coach

Our next life coach training course, which is held by webinar, commences Tuesday 11 February 2020 at 7.30pm AEST. Enrolments open now.

A message from Anne Hartley

I never set out to own a life coach training school, I was happy being a life coach! But over time I recognised how my coaching model, based on listening to your heart, which had so transformed my own life did the same for my clients.

My work arose out of a midlife crisis I experienced. It was a time of utter despair when I wondered if this was all my life was ever going to be. Feeling fed up with myself one day I decided to search for a better way to live. That search culminated in my discovering my passion and my purpose.

An experience always means more if we can share it with others, and that’s what I felt compelled to do. I started Hart Life Coaching, the training school in 1999, Many graduates tell us how much our course has enhanced their lives, just as it can do for you.

I am passionate about life coaching. Watching a client blossom and grow because I have helped them gain clarity is a delight. Seeing them take control, clear away the obstacles that inhibit them, and establish habits that support them makes it the most fulfilling work I have ever done. You can experience this sense of fulfillment as well.

Because of my own experience with a midlife crisis, which turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to me, we now have an additional module for people who want to be midlife coaches.

There is a market for life coaches. Setting up a business can be scary at first, but we are here to support you every step of the way, during and after your training, and our training is first class.

Discover your passion and purpose, as many others have done by training with us.

As enthusiastic as we are about life coaching, you won’t get the hard sell from us. Everything you need to know is right on this page, but do give me a call on the number shown at the top of the page if you want to talk any of it over.

I look forward to your call.
Anne Hartley

What our life coach training is about?

Imagine being able to make a real difference in people’s lives.
Imagine getting up each day excited to go to work.
Imagine the freedom you can gain from being your own boss.

That’s what being a life coach is all about.

Our coaching model is based on trusting your heart, living by values and establishing habits that support you. There’s a lot more to it than that of course as the course is rich in exercises, quizzes, questions and tools you can use with clients.

For many years mind powers ruled, but it’s since been discovered that our heart is the most powerful organ in the body. Scientists have proven that the mind takes orders from the heart and when our hearts and mind work together, we can transform our own lives, and the lives of the clients we work with.

If you wish to specialise we also offer modules on career coaching and midlife coaching for an additional charge.

Our life coach training course is approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF), which is the international standard for life coaching.

Our life coach training course is easy, doable, interesting and fun.

Matt Mason life coach

When I was looking for a suitable life coaching course Hart Life Coaching’s course instantly felt like the perfect one for me. And now that I have almost completed the course I couldn’t be happier with my decision. The Hart Life Coaching course has been so much more than I was hoping for and I feel like I am now truly living my life’s purpose. The content is astoundingly effective and the method of delivery flexible to suit anyone.

Matt Mason


The evening that I found Hart Life Coaching school I was literally at my wit’s end as to where my life was going. I had looked to America to find the kind of life coaching that resonates with my heart but instead I found it at the other end of the world, Australia. The Heart Process that I trained with Anne Hartley has offered me a new lease of life, honest tools to bounce back when stuck. Now I feel I am personally responsible for what and how much I can achieve in my life. There are a few people in this world that you truly feel are meant to do what they are doing. From her hard work, I have found a career in it. What better giving can there be than this.
