Who We Are and What We Do


If you have not yet studied with us, you may not already know that the Global Coaching Academy has been creating and delivering heart-based training programmes since 2004.


We began as a very small Registered Training Organisation in Perth offering a Certificate of Mentoring and Coaching. This was in response to people who were looking for a meaningful course and qualification that wasn't all about 'rah rah' and money making, rather about wanting to make a difference and support others to become the best versions of themselves. 17 years later, GCA is delivering a Diploma of Mentoring, Coaching and Interpersonal Facilitation, as a fully internationally recognised ICF accredited coach training program to participants in United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, Asia and New Zealand.

Monthly Musings 

Some heartfelt inspiration for our readers...

Myth busters...


Exploring a new paradigm of Coaching, Mentoring and Interpersonal Facilitation, what it is and what it isn’t, from the perspective of GCA heart based philosophy.


                       MYTH: Resilience is about suffering

                      MYTH BUST: Resilience is about embracing growth


Resilience – 1. the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties, toughness

                        2. the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.


If asked ‘What is resilience?’ what would be your first response? Perhaps that resilience is the ability to get back up when knocked down, or to cope with challenges when stretched, of course. However, as we take a moment to feel into this energy, we may discover quite a treasure that exists within all of creation. The plant kingdom, the animal kingdom and the human kingdom all hold resilience in potential.


The initial reflection may be on overcoming or achieving success through physical challenges, for instance an athlete who overcomes an injury to compete once again or one who survives an acute illness to return to a normal life. We see inspiring examples of such resilience in the world every day.


There are also those who come through huge emotional and mental challenges that can range through the spectrum of human stress, heartbreak and trauma to climb out of what can feel like a pretty dark place in moments to regain a degree of peace within once again while having gained a degree of wisdom from the experience. These make wonderful mentors as they share from their heart’s experience.


Resilience actually draws upon courage, empathy and the will to engage more with life, to rise and stand for something greater than self as those who inspire us have done and the more we choose to acknowledge and access it, the greater lovers of life we become.


Take a moment, breathe and open to your heart showing you at least one example, or more, of your own resilience, acknowledge it and know it is within you.
