Life Coach Training Course Reviews

We’ve been training life coaches since 1999.

Here’s what our students say about our Life Coach Training Course based on the Heart Process Life Coaching Method by Anne Hartley.

Kerrie Butler, Certified Life Coach

I started a counselling course feeling the desire to support and help people, the correspondence proved difficult, and the pressure of the course saw me becoming despondent and distracted from pursuing the thing I felt was the answer to my questions. Thus I was left still roaming around unfulfilled and wanting. The answers to my search started to evolve when I volunteered to be a practice client for an amazing connection of mine who was working towards being a Life Coach. I became clearer in many areas especially around the obstacles I placed on myself and the limits I set. My confidence in my educational abilities after being a stay at home Mum for so long left me doubting my abilities.
This was when Life Coaching opened its doorway to me. I was recommended to read Anne Harley’s Book “Love The Life You Live and to look at her coaching course. It all just fell into place, and I felt comfortable talking to Anne, her website and style of coaching attracted me. I was drawn to the course because it came from the heart. It felt realistic having a style that would relate to all walks of life. It had a strong values base with professional knowledge to support it. I felt confident that I wouldn’t be out of my depth and was proven right in the weeks to follow. The coaching proved to be a strong foundation for what lay ahead in my life. It was during this period that my 19-year marriage began to dissolve something I was not expecting. It was with the work I had been learning together with the support of Anne and fellow coaching students, and I feel I was able to move on.
I have grown and developed and am now enjoying life as an independent single woman who has gratefulness for all of the life lesson I have experienced this year. My Sincerest gratitude goes to Anne, and I highly recommend you investigate her Life Coaching Course and see if it is right for you. It has worked for me!

Judith Baxter, Certified Life Coach

I wanted to tell you how very much I appreciate your help and your wisdom. While I have been coaching for a while mostly in an informal manner, the steps and your advice makes the whole thing so much simpler. Your ten steps make so much sense, and the fact that they came out of your own experiences make them so much stronger. I admire what you have achieved in your life, and you are an inspiration to all. I admire your tenacity, your ‘stickability’ and all your abilities. You have certainly helped make my life easier, and through you, I have expanded my horizons, my goals and my dreams.

Rob Baker, Certified Life Coach

Anne Hartley’s huge talent lies in marrying her passion for helping others with her effective ability to communicate life-enhancing strategies which we can all benefit from – Her work is clearly motivated from a place of love rather than ego.

Rob Baker

Zora Harvie, Certified Life Coach

Anne’s depth of knowledge and professionalism is unsurpassed. A woman of wisdom, depth of knowledge, integrity with an open heart, she is an asset to all who meet her. When I started my life coach training with Anne, I thought I knew myself pretty well during the course I accessed information about myself at an unexpected deep level.
The processes are practical, and although they are simple to apply, they can reach incredible depth if needed. Anne’s openness, integrity and genuine heartfelt care for her coaching students allowed me to go to access greater depth of knowledge about myself and life coaching.
I am confident that the skills I have learnt are of great benefit to anyone wanting to change their life circumstances or gain a greater understanding of themselves.

Life coach Jill Mason, Life coaching Queensland

Thank you, Anne, for giving me the skills and confidence to become a life coach. The course provided me with great skills, tools and knowledge for me to start my own life coaching business. Without this course, it would not have been possible. Thank you!

Jill Mason

Janina Suzanne, Certified Life Coach

My decision to complete the Hart Life Coaching Course has enabled me to understand my needs and wants and to live a more authentic life. The ‘Heart Process’ has helped me understand what makes me happy and the importance of making choices from my heart.
I have always wanted to work from home doing something that I love. Life Coaching has provided me with this life-changing career that I can also travel with because I coach over the telephone/Skype. I now feel confident that I have the skills, tools and structure to help my clients create lives that they love living truly. I feel great satisfaction in being part of this process that moves people forward into a more fulfilling and peaceful and happier life.
Thank you, Anne and the Hart Life Coaching Team.

Janina Suzanne

Leigh Edwards, Certified Life Coach

Going through the Hart Life Coaching Program has been a truly enriching experience. I have grown personally and have walked away feeling indeed equipped to be able to establish my coaching practice offering a high-quality coaching experience for clients. Having been coached using other coaching models, I found the Heart Process to be better, and it truly sets coaches and clients up for success. The process gives coaches a clear map to guide them which provides clients with the structure they require to make lasting, positive changes in their life.
I have only praise for Anne and her team at Hart Life Coaching.

Aminath Arif, Certified Life Coach

Anne’s book “Live the life you love” lay on top of a stack of second-hand books in a store in downtown Perth. I picked it up because I was as usual looking for answers. I took Anne’s book with me and read it on the flight back home. I finished reading it before I got to Male.Was Anne’s book the answer to my prayers? That was what the book gave me and that is what it gives me today.
That is what I love most about the book and the whole approach Anne has. I read the book a second time and a third time and a fourth time. I started taking every word, every concept, and every “quote” into my life. I looked at the website. I wanted to do the course but I had no money.One day early 2004, I thought I will write to Anne and tell her what I want and the worst I would get is a “NO”. I was inspired by her and I did not fear “NO” and Anne said yes. I was committed to it and my thinking started clearing and I became more focused. I was patient and became emotionally balanced. My communication started changing and I started taking charge of my life. I worked tirelessly on myself in a gentle manner and I learnt self-forgiveness. I accepted myself as I was and acknowledged myself for who I was. I discovered to live my values and choices consciously and so much more.
Before I completed the certificate program, I was invited to do a life skill seminar for a company. I talked about it too so many companies, resort owners and individuals. More than individual’s clients I found it better to approach companies. But then my challenge came. I needed to conduct the program in Dhivehi.
Success is not something that is in the future, It is here and right now. However, I wanted to offer Anne some concrete measures of success. I found an investor who gave me USD30,000.00 to start my school non-refundable and no share in the school because he has observed my work for the last few years and he appreciates me. I started my school on 2nd July 2007 and on 20th August was the first intake of trainees (15 boys) to be trained as waiters in Hospitality. All trainees go through the life coaching process.
25 new trainees are starting on 20th Nov 2007.
20 trainees will begin next month.
I have also taken the full ten step program in Dhivehi and integrated it into the Entrepreneurship trainings that I conduct for communities in the Maldives supported by United Nations Development Program.
Anthu was a highly respected and passionate advocate of education for the young and disadvantaged, and of women’s involvement in all aspects of society, particularly business. Sadly she died in 2011, from burns gained while attempting to extinguish a man who caught fire at a barbeque. It was a privilege to train her. Anne Hartley

Sue Matthew, Certified Life Coach

When I chose to train as a life coach with Hart Life Coaching I listened to my heart. I’m very glad I did! I came through the course well prepared and well resourced for life coaching…and incredibly happy to be helping people to flourish – I feel I’ve come home. Anne Hartley is a delight. Anne lives her values and models the coaching she teaches beautifully; she is warm, open, generous and accepting.
Training with Anne has been a pleasure. From the first email and through the months ahead, there has been grace and ease in each step of the training the process. Anne guided, affirmed and encouraged each of us throughout the training; supporting us to find our strengths and our gifts as coaches. I found the telephone conferencing excellent (I wasn’t sure I’d like this bit); Anne brings respect, equality, wisdom and joy to the calls and creates an atmosphere of laughter and learning.
As an bonus: the training is easy to fit in around family and work commitments, there’s no travel time, and the carbon footprint is tiny.
The results of working with the Heart Process are very tangible in my own life, in the lives of my clients and through to loved ones and beyond. Being happy has a big flow-on effect!

Svetlana Winn, Certified Life Coach

For a great number of years I have been on a journey of , and all along I thought I knew myself pretty well.
To my surprise, after learning ‘The Heart’ process (as used by a Hart Life Coach) it has only deepened my awareness and understanding of myself. The Heart process is truly a remarkable approach to having an individual work on connecting with their heart and mind.
Thank you, Anne, for your ‘magic’ and the opportunity to learn how to be really happy in our lives.

Helen Harvey, Certified Life Coach

I loved doing the Hart Coaching life coach training. This values-based coaching really resonated with me. I leaned down to earth tools for enhancing all areas of my life and manifesting my dreams. My clients enjoy using the ten-step process, and as a result, have made positive changes in their lives.

Helen Harvey

Fiona Christie, Certified Life Coach

We played a Christmas conversation game with a friend of mine over the Christmas break, and one of the questions was ‘who has had the most influence over your life, and why’. I have that a lot of thought and my answer was ‘you’ – Anne Hartley – and the why was: because if I hadn’t done the coaching course, I probably wouldn’t have ended my first marriage. If I hadn’t done that I would never have experienced the joy of living on my own. If I hadn’t done that I would never have done all the renovation work that I loved and hated at the same time.
I would never have met Barry – my husband and I would never have realised my dream of making such a difference for myself and others.

Fiona Christie

Annie Miller, Certified Life Coach

My Life Coaching career arose from being a client of Anne Hartley’s. After spending years studying personal development, I was looking for more and indeed found it with Anne’s 10 Step Life Coaching process.
The process is simple, concise and so effective. Confronting all the steps and working with my values has empowered me in every aspect of my life. Anne is a seriously committed coach and trainer. Drawing from her incredible life journey she shares her wisdom and guides whether it be a client or a student in the direction of their dreams. The accredited Life Coach training is thorough and balanced between hands-on and theory. I enjoyed the course immensely and became especially passionate about the time allowed for questions and discussion. I also found it was invaluable to be trained by someone who is working in the field at the time.
I would highly recommend Anne as a coach or as a trainer of trainers. I would also like to thank her personally for all the books she has written. They are brilliant.

Anne’s Ten Step Process of Life Coaching came to me at exactly the right time in my life. I have found that working with the values and beliefs has been immensely empowering for me. I am not someone who can start with a goal and work towards it in a linear fashion. The Ten Step Process is inspiring and has led to amazing “Aha!” moments constantly as I finally find my true self and capabilities. Clients have expressed enthusiastically to me that working with this process has enabled them to overcome hurdles and obstacles in their life even from the very first session.
I would strongly recommend this process to anyone who wants to improve the quality of their life, to achieve their dreams (whether they know what they are or not) and find happiness.

Sue Peel

Joanne Willoughby, Certified Life Coach

The Ten Steps gave me another tool to add to therapy, as I now teach my clients life skills. Doing the course brought about a great deal of positive change in my own life, and the Ten Steps have worked for my clients as well. I particularly enjoyed doing a course over the telephone, it was so easy and saved me so much time. The interaction with others and practise coaching sessions were excellent.

Joann Willoughby, Farley Hypnotherapist / Reiki Master / Accredited Life Coach

Al Gentleman, Certified Life Coach

The course was very helpful for me in that I was forced to dig deeper into the teachings and content of what Anne was saying in her books and workbook. Having homework to do was a good discipline in the midst of my busy life. I found Anne very knowledgeable about life coaching and what she said was very helpful and supportive.

Al Gentleman

The training material was very thorough. The manual provided the excellent reference and a source of information to refer back to. The course content was varied, relevant with extra references to research to assist with knowledge overall. The training support was very prompt.

Jill Andrews

The course content was fantastic, I loved all elements of it and found it really informative. I learnt so much while also building on my previous knowledge and skills. I really liked the originality of a lot of the content. The whole team are great. Anne is always ready to offer help and support, and any questions/issues are promptly resolved. We were always encouraged and given individual support. I loved the range of different formats the training provided so we could work at our own pace.

Sharyna Sharman

The training support was very kind, caring and nurturing. This provided the perfect environment to learn and grow.

Lucinda Jones

I found that having reading material, videos and teleconferences on the same material was such a fantastic way to learn as it covered all ways of learning and the repetition reinforced the learning for me. The course content is life-changing, learning about behaviour, personalities and ways to change or enhance these has been rewarding, positive and encouraging.

Rachel Dickey

The training material was easy to understand. I really benefit from the online tutorial for each subject. These were both entertaining and educational. The teleconferences were very beneficial to receive instant feedback and gave us a discussion platform.

Jenny Clough

Anne uses and teaches an amazing holistic coaching process. “Normal” coaching is already itself a transformational process. Add to that some HEART – the conscious choice of your deepest values, being supported in your needs, and understanding yourself – and coaching in any area of your life becomes “supercharged” This is what happens when you are coached using the Hart Life coaching process.
Since my mid-20s, I have always been very healthy, had an abundance of energy, and enjoyed a rich spiritual life. THEN, I was totally blown away by the amazing feelings of love, wellness and wholeness that I experienced when I did some sessions of Hart Life coaching with Sue Matthew, during her training as a life coach with Anne. Using the Hart Life process, so many things in my life just fell into place – things which many people might employ multiple sessions of counselling for. In fact, I found it so amazing that I did the coaches training with Anne so that I could pass this transformational work on to the people I serve. The coaching training was thorough and insightful, and the structure of the coaching course was supportive.
I am so grateful to Anne for her dedication in bringing transformation to so many people’s lives. The coaching process she has developed brings amazing results, and Anne very generously continues to share her wisdom and insights.

Alice Kleinsman

The course was fun, life-changing and challenging at times. When you live by what Anne teaches Life flows so easily.

Nerida Hedges

I find the teleconferencing very effective, you don’t have to leave the comforts of your own home to be involved in a class (which I love!), and it feels as though you are all somehow in the same space anyway. Even though so far apart in the distance. Being a lover of freedom, it’s also great that I can travel anywhere within Oz or even when home in NZ and know that I am still able to commit to the call weekly, wherever I am.

Leanne Morton

I have seen that change come about through the choices I make freely, not through outside pressures, or expectations of others, for that creates internal conflict, but by the day-by-day decisions and by demonstrating who I am, i.e. my authentic self.
Having trained under Anne as a Life Coach, I can testify that putting what I have learnt in this course into practice, has impacted my life enormously. I have learnt to know myself more clearly, why I behave in a certain way, how I interpret situations, why I react in a certain way, my internal dialogue, the way I prepare myself for difficult situations, all through the lens of Love the Life You Live and who I am as a person.
My journey is a continuing one, and I would encourage anyone who is prepared to do a little work looking within, to join me on that journey.

Valerie McLean

I feel very confident about the course we are doing with you. I enjoy it immensely, and it has made a difference in my own life already.

Michelle Kandiliotis

I’d like to thank you, Anne, for providing such an inspiring, detailed and all-encompassing approach to Life Coaching. Your Heart Process is such a strong foundation for the work we do as coaches, as well as being such a great guide for our own personal journeys. I have really enjoyed your coach training Classes and loved the fact that they are teleclasses, so I could dial in from anywhere. Thanks again.

Cathy Halliday

I would like to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart because your vision and passion for life coaching have encouraged people like myself to follow in your footsteps. Reading your books has given me a greater understanding of the importance of listening to your heart rather than your head. I know year head is useful for many a think, but if you didn’t listen to your heart, there would be no passion.

Sue Phillips

I am thoroughly enjoying the course the information and exercises. They are so valuable to myself at this stage before I even commence with any clients. The audios are wonderful – I can listen to them as I travel to and from work each day. Working with my three chosen values, I have found to be most exceptional – I have found it challenging but very very rewarding.

Kathy Parker

I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to put my skills into action through life coaching. This course has filled the gap in my quest to teach what I believe is the purpose of this life. The content of the course was very thorough. The case studies were challenging but an interesting exercise. The guest speakers were enlightening. And you Anne came from the heart and empowered us to go out into the world with confidence. Thank you.
Having never done a course by teleconferencing, I was a little apprehensive how telephone training would work. I need not have worried. The lecturers presented relevant, time and useful material, with positive energy and passion that was inspirational.

Carmel Petcos

I would like to say thank you for your course and coaching. It has been a positive and progressive time having brought continued growth and change, and I am grateful that Hart Life coaching was a catalyst in my initiating personal breakthroughs as well as providing to a direction to begin as a life coach.

Jaye Stanford

Having always been interested in personal growth I decided to do a course in life coaching and was drawn to Anne Hartley’s “Heart Process” coaching website because of the genuine presentation of the courses that Anne offered.
I found Anne’s experience and wisdom through her mentoring, books and weekly teleconferencing truly enriching and am inspired to pursue my own career as a Hart Life Coach.

Pam Nelson

Thank you for a great course. I have learned a great deal about myself. I enjoyed your honesty about yourself and your own imperfections which are very refreshing as so often course leaders come across as being perfect which of course is not the case.

Gerard McCarthy

I had wanted to do Anne’s course for a very long time after I read her books and “bells” went off in my head. I was finally in a position to do so this year, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Whilst learning to be a Life Coach, you are on an inner discovery journey about yourself, and so many things change for you personally, and what a fabulous tool that is when you begin to teach other people, you can then bring a true knowledge and understanding to your clients.
My best description for this process is that I feel the pieces of the Jigsaw that is me and were scattered and not fitting together, are now sliding back into place smoothly, fitting together as I learn more and more. I highly recommend this course and the wonderful Anne Hartley to anyone who wishes to be a coach or just for personal growth.

Janet Kirk

My Life Coaching Course with Anne was one of my best decisions I’ve made. I thoroughly enjoyed Anne’s course it was easy to follow, and Anne was a great mentor during the course. I found her course so easy to follow and understand I was able to work through and complete the course early and pass it.
I highly recommend the Hart Life Coaching Course to anyone wanting to become a Life Coach.
