What we do

Established for over 10 years, Neurocoaching Australia is one of Australia’s most respected Neurocoach training providers.

Our coach training courses are internationally accredited suited to both individuals and groups.

We are continually pushing forward into new areas of research, evidence-based Neurocoaching and the application of this technology into fields where coaching has not yet been seen.

Our training programs are directed by one of Australia’s few ICF Master Certified Coaches (MCC), Dr. Mark Setch, and developed on the foundation of the principles of Neuroscience. The tools that you will learn are all proven by science to be highly effective and transformative in practice. Our coach training program is an International Coaching Federation (ICF) Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP). Coaches who complete our full training program can apply for an individual credential with the ICF.

All completed courses from our Accredited Coach Training Program can be claimed as Approved Coach Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) towards an ICF credential. Coaches already holding an ICF credential can claim Coach Continuing Education (CCE) credits for the completion of any courses that are included within our ACTP.

What is Neurocoaching?

The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a creative and thought-provoking process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential. In other words, professional coaches treat their clients as peers, co-creating the journey with them.

Neurocoaching recognises, values and integrates modern neuroscience within the coaching process.

Neurocoaching avoids the mind/body split, understanding that we are one whole mind, body, emotions and spirit. This is because “neuro” is not simply a brain based thing but a whole of person.

Professional Neurocoaches operate from a transformational coaching mindset and skill-base, equipped to coach the whole person.

Is Neurocoaching for you?

Based on the principles of neuroscience, the tools we teach during the Neurocoach training courses will have a significant and transformational impact not only on your life but, in turn, on the lives of those around you. One question we get asked often by people considering coach training is: “Am I the right kind of person to be a Neurocoach?”.

This is for you if you:

  • You work with people every day and you’re passionate to explore new ways to lift them higher e.g.
  • Community Services employees, teachers, military personnel, sports coaches
  • Someone seeking a significant life/career change and ready to start helping others bring about deep change in their lives (and your own in the process).
  • Have an entrepreneurial spirit and keen to strike out on your own terms on your own path.
  • Know you’re here to change the world in some positive way
  • Are a leader of people and you’re passionate to find new ways to empower and inspire those around you
  • Know you’re ready to start your journey as a coach but not sure where to start
  • You’re ready to overcome negative blocks in your life and explore fulfilling your true potential.

Neurocoaching requires certain key traits to ensure that you are open to adopting a transformational coach mindset. These are the personal traits you need to become a truly impactful Neurocoach. You:

  • Are committed to a journey of personal transformation
  • Understand the power of asking great questions
  • Believe in people’s ability to change and grow
  • Are willing to deal with your own stuff as it comes up, and not just try and fix others
  • Have a passion for life
  • Are generous and kind
  • Are great with people
  • Love learning and learn quickly
  • Have an adventurous spirit

Neurocoaching Australia values

Our values are the bedrock of all we do:


All our training is fully accredited (ACTP) with the International Coach Federation (ICF). We have a team of outstanding coaches and coach trainers. We are unashamedly world class.

Our coach training is evidence based and research backed with the latest from neuroscience and psychology. We avoid focusing too much on complicated models and theories, but instead give you applicable ways to use them.


We know life coaching works because we see the power of these tools in our own lives every day. We demand that our coaches smoke what they sell. They walk the talk.

We don’t believe in selling life coach training to everyone. We hate to see people sucked in by unrealistic promises of success and riches if they are not really suited to the coaching skill-set. You can expect an upfront and realistic conversation about that before starting.


We are an Aussie company. We love to keep it real and down to earth. What you see is what you get. Hype is not part of our M.O. We’re also not big fans of smoke, magic or mirrors in coaching.

Our life coach training program is real world tested. Either the technology works or we throw it away. Our goal is to equip you with those tools and skills you need to become one of Australia’s finest coaches.


Life is for living. We are all created with the capacity to flourish in life, yet few people do. Our coach training is focused on tools that bring breakthrough and increase people’s ability to see and experience a more fulfilling, satisfying life.

We have found that very often there are simple, elegant solutions to complex human problems. They are almost always beautiful. For that reason artistry, freedom and playfulness are important to us.

Neurocoaching Training FAQs

Neurocoaching is a powerful fusion of life coaching with the highly impactful principles of neuroscience.

Neurocoach training will teach you techniques that not only work with the client to transform their lives but also those that understand how the human brain and mind works which can lead to significant and powerful change within the individual.

Neurocoaching recognises, values and integrates these modern principles within the coaching process.

Neurocoaching avoids the mind/body split, understanding that we are one whole being: mind, body, emotions and spirit.

Professionally trained Neurocoaches operate from a transformational coaching mindset and skill-base, equipped to coach the whole person.

The International Coaching Federation accreditation you receive when you complete Neurocoaching Australia courses are internationally recognised and will enable you to stand out in the marketplace, assuring your potential clients of your credibility and skillset.

To establish yourself as a Life NeuroCoach you will need to complete the following accredited life coach training courses:

  • Module 1: Foundations in Neurocoaching and
  • Module 2: Neurocoaching in Practice.

Once you have completed these, you can begin coaching your own clients.

To further strengthen your coaching capabilities and skills you can then go on to complete Module 3: Practitional Neurocoaching, Module 4: Professional Neurocoaching and to really stand out Module 5: Master Coaching.  (After completing Module 3 you will have accumulated sufficient ICF accredited coach training hours to apply for your Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential.  When you have completed Module 4 you have enough coach training hours to satisfy the training requirement for the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential)

Neurocoaching Australia is one of the few training providers in Australia who deliver accredited Neurocoaching training courses.  Our courses are supercharged with the powerful principles of neuroscience giving you the edge over standard life coach training outcomes.

Our training is overseen by one of Australia’s few Master Coaches (MCC) and Director of Training, Dr. Mark Setch who, together with Robert Holmes PCC and Sue Hefren PCC,  has created training programs that ensure you are able to create significant and transformational results for your clients.

If you are starting out at Module 1: Foundations in Neurocoaching, there are no entry requirements.

Modules 2-5 require that you have completed the preceding courses before moving to the next module.

Great!  We value your experience and look forward to supercharging your capability with a transformational Neurocoaching mindset that will set you in a different league from other life coaches.

So that we can advise which level you will need to take, please contact us here for an informal chat about how we can help.

For Module 1 and Module 3, classes are held from 6pm-9pm AEST/AEDT.   For Module 2, classes are from 6pm-8pm AEST/AEDT fortnightly, with Coaching Practice Groups (Triads) in the intervening weeks.

That’s not a problem.  All our classes are recorded so if you miss one  you can listen to the recording.  Keep in mind that for ICF accreditation, you do need to attend at least 50% of the classes live and you will gain most from the courses when you attend live and are able in interact with other participants.

That varies.  The gap between Module 1 and Module 2 is small; 3-5 weeks.   The gap between Module 2 and Module 3 training is longer; it can be between 2 and 4 months depending on when you enrol. This is quite intentional, as you will gain most benefit from Module 3 training when you have had opportunity to practice your coaching.

Absolutely!   At Neurocoaching Australia our vision is not only to provide high-quality globally accredited training, but also to develop a community of coaches.  Through our Members Only Facebook Group, you have lifetime access to our training team and other coaches within our community to support, encourage and advise on developing your coaching, whether in private practice of as part of your work role.

The ICF does not recognise counselling/psychology qualifications are RPL, as coaching, while complimentary to counselling, is quite different, as you will experience if you chose to enrol.   Maximum value will be gained  from our training if you participate in the entire course, and benefit from the interaction with the Trainer and other students

We do not offer scholarships, but we do offer flexible interest-free payment plans with all of our training, so you don’t need to pay upfront.
