I strongly recommend SCORE. They can help you with just about anything you are asking about here, and best of all, it's free.
Life coaches are very helpful to show a right path for life and release your power of thinking to a new direction. But yes selection of life coaching is a very helpful way to overcome your issues.
I agree with Tony. I'm also a John Maxwell Team coach, trainer, and speaker. My wife, 23 yr old son, and my Mom are all certified. John was a pastor for the first 25 years of his career before entering the secular arena. However, all of his principles are biblical. The value in John's program is unbelievable. There is actually a certification coming up in August.
This program may be just perfect for you. There is an online university, weekly calls with the mentors, a closed facebook page, and lots of support. However, as many have replied, we get out of it what we put into it. There is no shortcut or easy way to get from where you are to where you want to be. It takes perseverance.

One tool I can suggest is PSYCH-K. It has become my clients' favourite modality. In fact, a lot of my clients find me, because they are searching for a PSYCH-K practitioner. Often, we begin with coaching to identify subconscious patterns, and then follow up with PSYCH-K.
Having a popular modality in your tool belt can attract clients for the other services you offer - especially if they are complementary.
Hi Hollianne - as you didn't specify the 'biz' to which you desire to apply your life coach training, I'll offer you a 10 minute strategy call to empower you to learn directly from your UNconscious what serves you best, guided by your inner truth (4th dimension+).
I'm very well versed, without bias, in many existing coaching programs, even designed, launched and led coaching programs for ICF accredited Institutes. And I'm launching my own Institute (to certify doctors in Hypnotherapy). Check my profile to see how it fits with your desire.
I welcome your call, no pitch, no obligation - it is how I pay it forward and I expect you will do the same ;-)
To your improved health, wealth and happiness, Hollianne
you need to specify what type of life coach training program you are looking for.. and your prospect of life without which this will be haphazard
The ICF has a great list of coach training programs. I loved my coach training at Erickson College with Tony Husted. Check out the www.thechristiancoach.com and he will answer any questions you may have.
Coaching has been a great investment for me and my clients.
What a lovely name!
There are a number of ICF Certified coach training programs. On their web site you can see a list. Your options are to take completely online program or go to a location and do the live, face to face work. That is ideal because you'll really learn the skills far better when practicing in person. That's also most costly.
The second approach is to take an online course. There are some important differences to keep in mind. Some programs will basically have phone based sessions and provide you with materials to study. These turn out to be very long conference calls which can be a bit of a pain and you'l need to make sure they offer a schedule of calls you can meet.
The third option which probably includes phone conference is web-based conference calls using technologies like GoToWebinar or SKYPE. Those are probably the best because you can use video to see each other.
I completed the program at the Institute of Life Coaching. It was very helpful and the trainers were really caring and knew their work. Another point is they offer a Board Certified Credential from the Center for Credentialing Education.
Best of luck,
