Welcome to Neurocoaching Australia

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.

We have worked with a consortium of coaching and training companies, academics and researchers, to inform the ongoing development of our training so that our coaches can reach into new markets. We are also working with scientists and peak performance athletes to incorporate Neurocoaching as an integral part of elite sport coaching, resilience building and trauma recovery.

Our training programs are directed by ICF Master Certified Coach (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 courses are International Coaching Federation (ICF) Accredited coaching education programs (Level 1 and Level 2), enabling coaching to apply for their ACC and PCC credentials when completing the relevant coaching hours.

Our Modules 1-3 comprise our ICF Level 1 program for the Associate Certified Coach (ACC) credential, and our Modules 1-4 comprise our Level 2 Progam towards the Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential.

Coaches already holding an ICF credential can claim Coach Continuing Education (CCE) credits for the completion of any courses.

As a coaching community, we are delighted to develop ongoing working partnerships with the best of our graduates and facilitate long term connections between our graduating alumni.

We invite you to come on this exciting journey and start your coach training with us: 1300 132 544.

A letter to you from Mark, Sue and Rob

Neurocoaching Australia Directors

Greetings, and thank you for your interest in Coach Training with Neurocoaching Australia!

We are passionately committed to providing high-quality coach training because we are passionate about coaching! Between us we have over 10,000 hours of coaching experience. We have been privileged to hear countless stories of the deep and lasting transformation that coaching has made in people’s lives – personally and professionally.

Many years ago, we all signed up to train as coaches because we wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. We experienced firsthand people whose lives had plateaued because they had lost – or never discovered – their sense of purpose. They were victims of their own unresourceful thinking and behaviour, and could not see the greatness within them. Through coaching they were able to recognise the blockages, make changes, and rise into the fullness of who they were. Their lives began to flourish on every level: healthier relationships, success in career, and greater peace within themselves. What a joy it is to partner with people in this transformational journey through coaching!

For this reason, we want to pay it forward by equipping others who have that same passion to make a difference, and so for the last 10 years we have passionately committed to training people to effectively serve in the coaching space, who in turn impact so many others. Some people think that coaching is easy. It’s not. It takes commitment, heart and skill to be a successful coach. At Neurocoaching Australia our training is International Coaching Federation accredited, based firmly on the principles of modern neuroscience, and is practical. We ensure you have the proven skills you need to effectively coach, while supporting you to discover and flow in your own unique vision and style of coaching. So many of our alumni are now successful coaches in a variety of niches – leadership, personal development, wellness, relationships, trauma, and more. The possibilities for coaching are endless!

Finally, we are more than just a coach training company. We are a community of coaches. Rather than train and desert, we continue to stay connected with our alumni through our Facebook group to offer ongoing support and encouragement through the coaching journey. That’s part of what we offer!

If you have any questions, please reach out, we’d love to hear from you!

Neurocoach 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.
