What Everybody is Saying About Mentoring Institute Life Coach Training
"I have just spent an amazing 8 days at Fountainhead Retreat completing the final section of the Life Coaching training in Stress, Anxiety and Depression.
As a qualified therapist in other fields, I was amazed at the content of this training and the direction that it took me. Other courses have opened my eyes to my own journey and those of others around me but this course truly identified and extracted much more. I personally experienced a "shift" in my own self worth.
Since my return to work, I have already used the Fountainhead Method with some of my clients and have noticed remarkable changes in them. I have been able to incorporate my personal skills and knowledge into this process and am already excited, enthusiastic and empowered with the prospect of using the Fountainhead Method in the future.
To those of you that are considering learning this method, I strongly advocate that it is money, time and personal growth well worth the experience.
Thanks to Michelle for great talks and ongoing support and to Salima, an incredible person, with passion, knowledge and expertise, for the time spent coaching, mentoring and training us throughout the course."

Thank you for showing me what they forgot to tell me in my psychology degree!
I have read hundreds of psychology and self help books and not one touched on the useful tools and philosophies that you delivered in your lectures!
I believe this information will be life changing for me, in terms of both my personal and professional life! I already feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, knowing that my life is unfolding in just the right way! That I haven't made all the wrong choices that lead to where I am and I will not make any wrong choices that will lead me off my path in the future! I have made the only choices I could have at the time, and what exciting adventures they have lead me on!
Thank you for giving me this opportunity to better my own life, as well as those I treat in the future!
I would recommend this Life-Coaching course to anyone who is serious about not only helping others but also helping themselves. After spending 15+ years studying human potential and personal development, completing numerous counseling courses and seminars I would say the Fountainhead Method Life-Coaching Course is by far the best course I have ever done. Why? This course will live with me forever and the wisdom I have gained from it will continue to impact my life and those around me until the day I die. I now understand REALITY and the illusion of non-reality and my purpose is life is clear. Thank You to Michelle for her awesome wisdom and compassionate delivery of an amazing course. To anyone who is considering taking a course in Life-Coaching STOP LOOKING!

I am a retired Nurse, Naturopath and Massage Therapist. I have read countless books and attended endless workshops on the subjects of Health; Body, Mind and Spirit, Personal Development, Self Awareness and Self Mastery. I have noticed that the beautiful thread of 'Truth' has a magical way of weaving itself through all faiths and belief systems. However, after awhile all the courses and teachings began to sound the same to me. I wasn't learning anything new.
NOT SO with the Fountainhead Life Coaching Course! From the beginning, I was taken by the passion and commitment with which the Life Coaches delivered the teachings that educate, empower and make a real difference in the lives of those they reach. And far from the 'same old, same old', I discovered a philosophy that is both innovative and thought provoking. For the first time in a very long while, my 'cage was rattled' and my belief systems challenged.
Having applied this new information to my own past and current life events I find myself with a deeper understanding and acceptance than I have previously experienced. Now, when I say, regarding certain areas of my life, 'I forgive myself, others and the painful event', it resonates with me and I feel it all the way through.
I am still very much 'a work in progress' and I always will be. But with my new found 'toolkit for life', I am well equipped to do the work on myself that is needed.
I look to my past and my future with a sense of acceptance, gratitude and contentment. Tis truly is Self Mastery....the ability to master ones mental and emotional planes! Bring on the day when this Philosophy is taught as a compulsory subject in all schools.

My experience in the Fountainhead Life Coaching course was very profound, the simplicity yet profound nature of the method is mind changing and life changing. Fountainhead Method actually illuminated for me that understanding our behavior day to day is not rocket science but a relatively simple key of awareness to living our lives.
The group dynamic was powerful by sharing each individual's process of the information each person received and gave so much!! We learnt from each other and bonded in a special way.
Thank you so very much to my fellow Fountainhead Course attendees and also to Michelle.

This course has given me yet another tool to help people effectively. Its simplicity makes it a very solid tool, increased awareness into a deeper understanding of how the person's mind works and how important a belief is, and the power it plays in our life. It's all good.

Over the last 2-3 years I have been wondering why it seems that the most amazing people in my life have been succumbing one by one to depression and anxiety. It has not made sense to me that these people whom I consider the most intelligent, creative, motivated achievers, those that I would expect to be the last to be taken down have been unequivocally flattened. These are the people who seem to have experienced and achieved the most in their lives, they have been energetic, focused, passionate and always there for others, helping them along the way.
Now thanks to attending this program I have the answers I have been searching for. I not only have the answers I need to feel comfortable in my life and skin, but I have the answers for the people I love admire and respect the most. I now realize why and how each of us is unique, and how that which appears to be our mistakes and weaknesses can become our strengths.
I would like to thank the whole of the ADI team for bringing this amazing model, philosophy, method, whatever you wish to call it to light and finding a way to banish the darkness that so many people experience unnecessarily, simply due to the way that we have been taught to think. I would recommend this course to anyone who is breathing or struggling to do so!

"Every now and then you have an opportunity come along where you say to yourself 'Yes, I am going to do this' and it is moments like this when one acts on the thought, something really great presents itself. The opportunity to do Life Coach training with Michelle Mark of Fountainhead Method was one of those moments. Having never been exposed to Life Coaching before, I found the teaching offered great understandings that have since helped me to reflect and learn from past events within my life.
This has had a wonderful flow on effect where I have been able share such learning's with many people, those whom are very close to me and also with people who have come into my life for only a moment. The knowledge offered on this course is not just knowledge that one stores in the memory banks of the mind, but a knowledge that lives and continues to grow as you apply it to all areas of your life." "A teaching where you gain wisdom...wisdom that leads you away from suffering, as opposed to towards... a teaching that is incredibly valid in today's society for all."
"Thank you to Michelle and all who participated on my course. Your sharing was invaluable."

Good to have goals ~ even when you're 60-or-so-plus-a-few-months. Goals are good. Some we might choose; others, we have heaped upon us. We Seniors are supposed to impart accumulated inestimable wisdom to the younger generations.
Wisdom. Prodigious wisdom ~ accumulated over a lifetime. What is the reality? Did we really acquire all-encompassing enlightenment simply be surviving all those years? Or, did we muddle/struggle through and reach venerable old age astonished to have not been knocked off the planet well before now.
But here we be, the supposed-purveyors of ye great erudition, prodigious all-knowing sagacity. Yeah-yeah ~ you're kidding, surely? I so needed an update. Turned to Fountainhead and the Australian Depression Institute, who teach the most advanced, the most efficacious be-healthy psychological system to be found worldwide.
But don't just take my word for it ~ find out for yourself.

"I discovered Fountainhead last November whilst browsing the net. after sending in my resume and meeting with Wayne and Michelle i decided to attend the life coach training. I have now completed my training other than my case studies.
I just want to say what a marvelous experience this has been. I thought i was learning new techniques to add to my toolbox on how to help other people and had no idea just how much it was going to penetrate into my mind and stir up all the limiting beliefs i didn’t even know i had! I understand life is a journey and a series of experiencesl although now i know the difference between understanding the method and actually experiencing the physical change in my mind and body as I have somehow unconsciously, applied the philosophy in my own journey of life.
I wasn’t doing the course due to my own feelings of anxiety or depression but I have had a shift inside. I have a feeling of calm and peace inside that I haven’t experienced before. I now feel even more excited about helping others to experience this for themselves."
