The number of people entering the coaching profession is on the up. And the number choosing life coaching as their preferred niche is higher than any other type of coaching.
So, if you’re a life coach, your business has to work extremely hard right now to cut through the noise and stand out. And to give yourself the chance of doing that, your branding has to be consistent across your website, social media and marketing channels.
Get your branding right and you’ll build familiarity and trust with your target audience, resulting in them choosing you over a life coach who’s confusing and inconsistent.

Oh, and make sure to hover over the images below to view the full website.
So, let’s get started…
1. Ami Summers – Craft Coaching & Development
Ami is a coach who helps small business owners develop their creative skills to become more business savvy.
Logo: With Craft all about bridging the gap between business and creativity, Ami’s logo captures that perfectly. Craft looks like it has been written in sweeping brush strokes, while ‘Coaching and Development’ are in a more professional font.
Creativity and business working together in one harmonious logo.
Colour and font: Ami’s website is the most colourful and warm you’ll come across. The red, yellow, pink and white is continued throughout, while the fonts are a little more straightforward and professional.
Once again, it’s a blend of creative and business-like.
Content and tone: The content and tone are less on the chatty, conversational side, but Ami is trying to attract business owners looking to learn how to be more business savvy.
An overly chatty tone here wouldn’t be appropriate, so their professional voice is perfect for the audience, but that doesn’t stop them from using words like ‘jam-packed’, so there’s still a light touch here and there.
Visuals: As you’d expect, the photographs are professional and suit Ami’s audience, but there’s heaps of creativity in the graphic design elements.
Overall: Ami aims to help businesses bridge the gap between business and creativity, and she does this spectacularly with her branding.
If you’re looking for a coach who practices what they preach, Ami is right up there at the top.
2. Andrea Owen – Your Kick-Ass Life
Andrea is a life coach who helps high-achieving women let go of default behaviours, including people-pleasing, perfectionism and control.
Logo: By calling her business Your Kick-Ass Life, straight away, you know you’re getting a coach who’s laid-back and a little bit cool. And that’s born out in the bold colour and font choice in her logo.
Colour and font: The colour and font choices are just as bold as the logo. To go from bright pink to a dull brown wouldn’t have worked. But by choosing yellow, red, green and blue throughout the rest of the sight, she maintains a light but bold feel.
Content and tone: Andrea’s copy matches her colour choice. It’s light, bright and extremely chatty. She isn’t afraid to swear and her imagery taps into how approachable and fun Andrea is.
Visuals: Andrea’s use of images show how approachable and fun she is. There are no jarring photos of her looking super-professional here. In the header, she’s lying in bed grinning and doing a ‘rock’ sign with her hands. And the rest show her smiling and pulling silly faces.
Social media: Andrea’s colour scheme, fonts, tone of voice and imagery carries over onto her social media, especially Instagram.
Overall: Andrea’s life coach branding is consistent across all her platforms, so it feels like you’re dealing with the same person.
It exudes confidence, which is what she hopes to instil in her clientele. And she really puts her personality out there, making her feel warm and approachable.
3. Christopher Mifsud – Press Start Leadership
Chris helps leaders in the video games industry enable and empower the people around them to grow into something pretty darn awesome.
Logo: Simply one of the most on-brand logos you’ll ever see. The old-school ‘animation’ design immediately tells you Chris is in the gaming industry. And the use of the words ‘Press Start’ ties into gaming too.
I can’t say this enough; the logo does everything it needs to before you even start scrolling.
Colour and font: The vibrant pink and purple really make you feel like you’re in a retro video game. And this is continued with the font choice for the headers and subheaders, which has a futuristic, gamer feel.
Content and tone: Having worked in the gaming industry for decades, Chris’ content speaks directly to his target audience – because he’s worked with these people for years.
He also uses a Lara Croft quote from Tomb Raider in place of the usual testimonial. Perfect for his audience, and it shows his fun, playful side.
Visuals: Using a mix of professional images which will resonate in the industry, coupled with Chris’ photo of him looking relaxed with his long, wild beard, it all works.
And the pixel images used throughout the site tie the gaming feel together.
Social media: Gaming and social media seem like a perfect marriage, and Chris’ really is. He even has a little pixelated character of himself across all his channels. And he captures the same style and tone on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube.
This is branding executed to perfection.
Overall: Yep, perfection.
Pure and simple.
4. Gabby Bernstein
Gabby is a bestselling author, coach and international speaker helping people feel more spiritually connected every day.
Logo: Gabby’s logo hits you right between the eyes. It’s big. Super big. So big that the real Gabby is the letter A in the logo.
It fits perfectly into her branding because Gabby is the brand, as you’ll learn shortly.
Colour and font: Gabby primarily uses black, white and photos on her website, with touches of lime green. And the fonts are bold and clear, making it easy for her audience to learn about what she does

Overall: Gabby is her brand. And she’s an incredible example of what can be achieved when you focus on creating helpful content and building a community.
Coaches who work with clients to make them feel spiritually connected would usually go for a ‘zen’ feel, but that’s what is so great about Gabby; she strays from the expected and does her own thing.
She’s different and that really stands out.
5. Heather Waring – Women Walking Women Talking
Heather is a women’s coach who encourages women to set aside time for walking and talking, which has helped clients experience meaningful change within hours.
Logo: For me, this is one of the standout logos on the list. Not only does it have a W for Women Walking, but by incorporating a leaf into the logo, it ties in the outdoors element to her coaching.
It’s all about women getting back to nature, and she manages this in a simple, straightforward logo. Plus, her website is called Women Walking Women Talking, which says everything about what she does in four words – extraordinary!
Colour and font: The colour palette Heather uses varies, from navy blue and white to pink, grey and green. But they work together because they’re all colours you’d see in nature, from the night sky and a storm cloud to an autumn leaf.
Everything feels natural and calming.
And by using a simple font, Heather makes everything easy to understand.
Content and tone: Heather’s content and tone are like taking a deep, relaxing breath. She permits her clients to take a moment for themselves and then taps into how they’re feeling with her own story, which will resonate with her audience.
Her tone is gentle and warm, which makes her coaching technique sound even more enticing.
Visuals: Heather’s visuals are breathtaking, especially the sunburst image in the header. From the off, you feel relaxed and at peace. And she follows this up with pictures of leaves, pebbles and grass.
Just by looking at them, you can feel your muscles relaxing.
Overall: There’s something so fresh and calming about Heather’s website and branding. And the nature theme is incorporated throughout, from the logo and copy to the visuals and colour palette.
It’s like one long, relaxing exhale.
6. Jimmy Turner

Logo: Jimmy’s logo incorporates the medical caduceus symbol (two snakes with wings entwined around a central staff), which encapsulates his brand as a coach for medical professions.

Colour and font: The use of colour is minimal, with Lisette opting for a brass and mineral colour scheme, which gives her branding a high-quality, professional look and feel.

Colour and font: The white, maroon and soft grey colour palette is not only calming, but together it also feels feminine, which is ideal as two sisters run it.
And although the font choices are standard Times New Roman and Impact, they work because they’re classic fonts that don’t distract the reader from the message.
Content and tone: The content and tone are captured perfectly in the very first sentence:
Get your child talking from the comfort of your home.
You don’t have to attend face-to-face sessions or take part in group therapy. You can get your child talking from the comfort of your very own home. For many people, that will come as a relief.

9. Susan Shaw
Susan is a coach, trainer and speaker who offers mindset coaching to sports professionals.
Logo: It’s simple and explains what she does.
