The Journey To Becoming A Masterful and Successful Coach

The journey of a masterful and successful coach begins with a sense of curiosity that leads all the way to becoming a sought after expert in your field. Coach School assists students every step of the way.

Curiosity/Amateur You’re either coaching in another role, or are keen to learn more about coaching

Desire/Student You have decided to formalize your learning and skills and are embarking on an exciting adventure of coach certification.

Familiarity/Client Without experiencing coaching, you cannot appreciate its power. At this point you are both coach and client.

Proficiency/Coach People are paying you to change their lives and you can’t quite believe you get to make a living this way.

Master You are an expert in your field, have a waiting list, and are quoted regularly. You are looking at leveraged ways to increase your impact.

There are 5 Steps to becoming both Masterful and Successful:

Step One – The core skills that you need to bring to every coaching session and every client.  This is what sets you apart from consultants, mentors and counsellors.

Step Two – The tools of your trade and what gives you consistency in your coaching and your results.

Step Three – There is no substitute for practice and feedback to improve your technical skills and show you ways to be even better.

Step Four – Earning while you learn is a crucial component to hitting the ground running and making a living from your coaching.

Step Five – Claim your rightful place as a masterful coach and attract the best clients from the start

Coach School provides the necessary training and support to ensure that they are not only confident coaches, but are making money from their skills, even before they are certified.

Rose Kirby

Women's Empowerment Coach


I’m so excited to continue this journey I’m on with you and I’m grateful that I managed to find your school on the  ICF website. Out of all the schools I researched and interviewed, you were the only one I felt answered all of my questions honestly and patiently without trying to force me into your school. You were the only one willing to work with me on financial constraints and and schedule constraints and made me feel like a person rather than just another number. So thank you! “


“Self paced, pick up any time, one on one time, group calls, great class mates that have become friends and your wisdom Lorraine”


“The personalised attention from you, Lorraine. The support and friendship from other students, the breadth of coaching modalities covered and the encouragement and freedom to learn at our own pace, develop our skills with clients from the very beginning in order to find our own style of coaching.”


“I love how it’s self paced and no pressure to be at a certain pace
It wouldn’t be the same with out you Lorraine- you are coach school – I joined because of you and I learn so much from you – your personality and knowledge is the edge you have compared to anyone or any other coaching thing! “


“The personalised attention, the real world experience and YOU Lorraine! I only signed up because of you xx”


“the one to one support you provide is unlike anything I have experienced in any other course, the fact you can complete the course as fast or as slow as you like, the personalised feedback on actual coaching calls is amazing and really does help you be a better coach moving forward, also the other opportunities that you actively seek out for all your students to help us get experience is fantastic and something I have never received on another course! “


“For me, there are a couple of things that Coach School
Offers that stands above the rest:
1. The 1:1 sessions are amazing, i come away with answers, direction and goals…and it doesn’t stop there, Lorraine Hamilton goes above and beyond ensuring emails are responded to and any additional info/resources is shared. And as I have said above, Lorraine makes you feel special
And genuinely wants to see you succeed.
2. The modules are amazing, extremely informative, so much knowledge shared and the exercises really help you to understand the learnings… and finally the feedback given once modules are completed is great…”


“You make the program what it is. Additionally, the fact that we’re a small group also makes it easier to connect and support each other’s effort.”


” The personalized support is invaluable. Lorraine, you have a way of making each person feel like they are your only student and that you are invested in their success.
Also, the group of ladies in Coach School are amazing! I always feel heard, supported, and encouraged.
I couldn’t ask for a better program or a better group to experience this journey with”


“The personalised 1:1 support and mentoring. You don’t feel like just another number in a huge class of people. And how it’s self paced so you can go as quick or slow as you want :))”


“”I don’t know any other schools, so can’t compare. But in all honesty, I choose businesses because of the people involved. Having go to know you over the past few years, I could see that you know your stuff, that we are aligned in our view of the world and that want the best for the industry. Plus, as you know, I think the ‘earn while you learn’ is a great tagline!!”


Coach School is not a marketing machine. I have no desire to lock students into something that is not a great fit.

It does not serve you, nor me, nor the coaching industry and my vision for Coach School.

That is why Coach School enrollment is by application only.  After your initial application you may be invited to an informal interview to have all of your questions answered, and to see if Coach School is the right fit for you.

It is natural however for some students to realise once they have embarked on a path of study that it is not the right one for them.

That is why I am offering a 14 day Money Back Guarantee, from enrollment date.

You will receive the first 2 modules of content, plus be able to attend an Office Hours call and 1:1 mentoring session to see if Coach School is the right fit for you.

(Refund requests will be processed between week 1 and 3, and will be subject to a $200 USD admin fee. Please make your selection carefully, and ask all necessary questions during your interview BEFORE signing up.)


There are other options to Coach School.

You can muddle through on your own, or with the help of videos and books.  You might even hire your own coach and try and replicate what they do in your work together.


  • How many client breakdowns are you going to have to manage on your own before you feel confident to deal with whatever is in front of you?
  • How many hours are you going to spend poring over YouTube and textbooks before you find the coaching style that is right for you?
  • How many hours of free coaching are you going to give away while you serve out your self-imposed internship?


Imagine if you could save a significant chunk of that time…

Isn’t it time to find the coach training that treats you like an individual?

We know you have questions, that’s why we want to talk to you before you take the leap into a significant time and financial commitment.
