What is a Life Coach?
A life coach is someone who helps people achieve their personal and professional goals.
A ‘real’ life coach knows how to be an exceptional resource to others by helping them clarify goals and action steps, identify resources, and by holding them accountable.
Ultimately, the best life coaches know how to help other people to identify limiting patterns that are holding them back, most of which their clients are not conscious of.
In addition, the best life coaches know a complete set of patterns and interventions for changing behavior, building skills and capabilities, installing more resourceful patterns and behaviors, and for changing beliefs. This makes them genuine ‘agents of change’.
In this way, a certified life coach helps people to succeed and accomplish things in their lives they would not otherwise be able to achieve.

“A fantastic training with several great insights. Highly recommended.”
“By the end of the 3rd day of the life coach certification, I was a brand new person. Finally, I have the resources I need to structure the best possible outcomes for myself and others. I’m excited to begin my new journey with my new abilities. Thank you Alexander!”
“When I first met you I was $17,000 in the red. Within a few years of working with you and your strategies, I am having my first 7 figure year.” Your coaching has been incredibly valuable.
Dan J. – Real Estate Consultant
“I have had the pleasure of having Alex Van Buren as my coach for six months. In that time frame, I have made great strides with the goals that were set for business and pleasure. As a person in sales, my self-confidence has increased tremendously. I also find my ability to effectively speak with clients and prospective clients much simpler and with greater efficiency. A personal habit that I thought was going to be extremely difficult has been overcome. This change has helped my health tremendously. Alex has made a huge difference in this short time frame, I look forward to accomplishing the rest of my goals very soon.”
“This three day training really helped me to personalize the NLP skills in my practice. This class gave me new insights, a fresh perspective on what I need to do next and how to apply the NLP skills in any environment today. Alexander shows his passion for this field and gives you his professional guidance to be outstanding. Thank you for this experience.”
“If you’re looking for a teacher, you’d be hard pressed to find a better one than Alexander Van Buren. Great teachers are very rare, and Alexander is one of them! I have been working with him for a year now, and I have been able to change completely. Today, I am much more who I want to be, and can do more than I have ever been able to achieve before. You can achieve whatever you want to achieve with Alexander.”
Susan Brown – Day Trader & Futures Trader
“This training provides a structured set of tools that will help me and my potential clients to clarify and achieve desired outcomes.”
“Alexander made the concepts on NLP very clear and concise. His teaching style was influential, while really creating an entertaining environment. The energy was high and the curriculum was masterful. I would definitely attend another course in the future.”
“I learned transformational techniques on how to use language to enhance every area of my life. The demonstrations added so much value to my learning experience. This training will help anyone who wants to change their life or the lives of others through change.”
“Not only did Alexander do a phenomenal job in teaching me many concepts that will greatly improve my business, but he went beyond helping me with my business into teaching me how to thrive in my life balance as well. He made sure I understood to balance everything important to me, such as making time for my health, family, and leisure time, so that I could be more balanced in my life and not stressed out with overworking myself with my business. He inspired me to take many actions to improve both my business and the quality of my life that I would have been ignorant or hesitant to take otherwise. His program was a real life changer for me. I wholeheartedly recommend him.”
“I learned so much about how emotions can change a situation as well as how powerful language is. I am leaving this training feeling empowered and can’t wait to empower others.”
I completed my certification last July and during the class, I received comprehensive training.
It is one of the best training I’ve ever received in my career life. I highly recommend it to everyone who is serving the community: non-profit, for-profit, community-based organization, academia, etc. Also, it is good training for those who want to continuously evolve in their life,i.e.. undergoing self-transformation to become better from what they were before or those who are planning to dive into a new career. The NLP & Coaching Institute of Colorado is a great institute to be connected with.
Lynn Lonzanida, MPH CCRP.
“My life coaching training has not only transformed my life, it will surely make a difference in the lives of everybody I have the opportunity to be of service to.”
“The life coach certification program was fantastic! It offered me an in depth understanding as to how I can better serve my clients by applying the structure and techniques Alexander teaches. I had been working from an intuitive level and struggled to motivate my clients to make changes due to my failure to recognize I needed to use their map of the world, amongst other great insights! I would recommend this training to anyone hoping to create lasting change in their own life as well as supporting others to create change in their experiences.” Sabrina Shelton Feng Shui consultant and certified life coach
“This workshop was amazing. I received the entire structure of how to create a successful coaching business. Alexander is a seasoned, passionate and highly successful coach and businessman. Incredible value.”
“I made $40,000 in the first month from one of the up-sell techniques you taught me. And I’ve added a quarter of a million dollars to my yearly income. And I took my wife to France and we hung out with the Tour-De-France cyclists, so I guess that qualifies as the lifestyle piece. That’s why I’ve come back for more coaching with you!
