It is our dream to equip thousands of African Coaches to impact and influence millions of lives and businesses in Africa.

The CATALYST COACH CERTIFICATION is an ICF-accredited coaching program that provides you with the skills and in-depth knowledge to kick start your journey as a life coach. Are you ready to transform lives?


Coaching is an effective intervention to unlocking a person’s potential to maximise their own performance. It is achieved through looking forward and setting goals to create a future of their choice.

Coaching helps people to learn about themselves, through asking powerful questions and causing reflection so that new ideas can be birth and new neural pathways can be formed to lead to lasting change.

Whether you are individual thinking to become a professional coach or a leader in a forward thinking organisation looking to integrate coaching competencies as part of your leadership, our ICF Accredited Coach Certification offers you a transformational approach with our proprietary FLOW5 C.O.A.C.H Process.

Join us on this revolution to impact and influence millions of lives in Africa and around the world.


The Catalyst Coach Certification (CCC) is a fully online experience created on a platform that is both Interactive and Engaging.

It masterpieces around bringing your life essence; your purpose, passions and strengths, to naturally flow into crafting your own Coaching style, influence and practice.

Our Coaching Frameworks are applicable to a wide range of coaching contexts including Executive Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Performance Coaching, Life Coaching and Career Coaching.


Our Mission is to EQUIP 10,000 Coaches & IMPACT 10,000,000 people  with Coaching across the Globe over the next 20 years.

This program has been life changing and brought forth new perspectives to my world. I’ve benefited from gaining awareness from my personal life discovery and subsequently a wide and enriching learning to the essentials of being a Coach.

Women Empowerment Coach

When I first signed up to the CCC program, I wanted to become a better trainer, and coach. Most of my focus was about bettering myself. During the program, I realized that I desired to be “the bigger person” to help others to search for their life purpose.

3 Unique Characteristics to our CCC Program

#1. Practical & Engaging, not Overwhelming

Many other certifications believe in making it extremely tough for coaches to be certified.

We believe in designing a program that has the rigor of a highly impactful program and yet interactive and engaging, so you will enjoy the process and the practicality of it.

#2. Aligned to your Needs & Goals

Though coaches have the passion to make the world a better place, they have to get their purpose aligned with their needs and goals as well. Otherwise, they will often find themselves drifting through the certification journey and dropping out pre-maturely.

We help you get aligned right at the beginning to your core via check-ins during our weekly webinars to ensure you’re on track.

#3. Easy On-The-Go Learning & Interaction

The Catalyst Coaching Certification (CCC) is created on the foundation that our lives in the 21st Century are fluid and demanding, and hence we have crafted the learning into bite sizes.

The customized Easy On-The-Go Learning and Interaction allows for flexibility whilst provide you with the right support structure to successfully complete your journey.

“We must see people in terms of their future potential, not their past performance”

There are so many things that I love about the Catalyst Coaching program, but if I really had to pick my top three, then the first is that it has been a transformative journey for me personally. It brought my 16-year self-discovery journey to fruition by anchoring every single AHA moment into a tangible shift. Not to mention, new and amazing breakthroughs that have taken me to the next level.

What I have valued in this program has been the seamless integration of “learning” and “doing”. Everything in this program has been intentionally crafted for us to apply toward a purposeful impact with our coachees. It has been an honour and privilege to learn under Coach Mel.
