Financial Coach Practitioner Certificate Training

A financial coach empowers others to develop their practical and emotional relationship with money without advising them on products.

In March 2002, having taken a career break after becoming disillusioned with the traditional model of financial advice, I created a different type of service. One that creates a non-judgemental space to support people to learn more about their relationship with money and empower them to take better control of, and responsibility for, their financial lives. 

Over the past 18 years, I've coached getting on for 1,000 people and trained over 90 people to become financial coaches. Read about Simonne's journey from financial adviser to coach and insight from a past trainee. Click here for a sample of Q&As and here for a selection of photos from our recent training courses.

There is a real, and growing, need for financial coaches. I would love for you to join us in pioneering a new holistic approach to helping people with the money side of their lives.


Simonne's enthusiasm, passion and experience of helping her clients become financially empowered is clear. Her training has given me a whole new perspective on how I can do this too, and I'd recommend this to anyone wishing to help others achieve financial freedom. Graham, Financial Planner

I could not recommend the course highly enough.  I've come away with so much fantastic information, experience of coaching and resources, that I feel a huge difference in my confidence level to get out there and get coaching. This is the best course I've ever been on, hands down, no question!  Can't wax lyrical enough about it." Kate, Financial Coach
