Hi I'm Mark Shields

Often referred to as the CAM Coach, I help coaches embody their knowledge, up level their skills and create a more positive impact in the world. I teach you deep level coaching skills to enable you to help people achieve profound change in their lives, their work and their personal lives.

Welcome to the Life Practice Online Coaching Academy direct from CAM COACH Training.

I know how difficult it is to make a break from the rat race, change complete career direction and thrive as a professional life coach. I did it and you can to.

I've scoured the earth, collaborated with some of the world's greatest experts, learned from many of the pioneers of behavioural change and had the pleasure of mentoring many of the worlds's leading coaches.

During this time I have created a unique behavioural change coaching methodology used within our life practice clinics and trained on our life practice courses earning me my life and business mastery awarded in 2008 by the Mind Institute Of Australia.

I'm here to give you the tools to create a new lifestyle and career that allows you to transform and thrive as you help others do the same.

Everything you need can be found right here within the syllabus of our courses.

All of our courses come with my promise to give you everything you need for your personal journey into transformation, creating a lifestyle and career that allows you to transform and thrive and together we can take your passion and turn it into a career.

I am passionate and enthusiastic about delivering on our mission of "providing life changing education for every one every where" and personally back this up by offering monthly enrolment discounted course offers, 100 course bursaries and 100 free places every year, to students challenged by health, financial and employment issues.

Carpe Diem

Just as in the field of many talking therapy's coaching remains an unregulated profession and with no agreed regulatory body in place. The Life Practice Academy has taken the lead in establishing an ethical set of core competencies and practitioner proficiencies that are based principally upon the standards that follow the UK'S National Occupational Standards. This ensures we set the same high standard of education across all of our courses.
