NEW Ebook - Life Coaching

We are excited to announce the release of another brand new ebook: How to be a Life Coach.

Life coaching is a relatively new profession - although coaches have been around for a long time in the guise of trainers, instructors, managers and tutors for various professions and disciplines. Life coaching is not easily defined, but it is a type of mentoring which focuses on helping individuals to achieve what they would like to achieve and thereby to lead more fulfilling lives. Unlike other forms of coaching, it takes place outside of the workplace and is concerned with all aspects of a person's life.

Student Testimonial

Student Testimonial: Sharon Alsop, currently studying Diploma in Counselling and Psychology

"I am currently working on my Diploma in Psychology and Counselling via ACS. I have always wanted to do a course in this field and finally decided to take the plunge about two years ago. I was interested in the subjects ACS offered and liked the idea of being able to study via long distance and at my own pace. I have learnt a lot from this course and have enjoyed it immensely.

I left my job in the Telco industry in 2010 in order to pursue my passion in counselling. I have been doing some volunteer work to complement my studies, and I am loving it! I am a volunteer counsellor with a particular project in local schools, as well as a helpline volunteer for GetConnected (helpline for under 25 year olds). These volunteer roles have enabled me to practice some of what I have learnt from the course and the experience has been invaluable. I am still learning a great deal! Just when I think I understand what counselling is all about, something new comes up and I am put right back into student mode. Being a counsellor (or studying to be one), isn't as easy as I first thought but is definitely enjoyable and something that I am passionate about.

ACS is very flexible in their approach which I have found extremely helpful when it came to some of my assignments. For example, in my Child Psychology module where I didn't always have access to interviewing children, my tutor mentioned that I could do alternative research instead to answer the questions, which is great. I really like learning about all the different schools of Psychology and Counselling. I feel particularly drawn to Brief Solution Focused Therapy and did some training in it with the BRIEF Institute (London). I would probably like to use this method (amongst others) of Counselling when I later practice as a counsellor."
