Life Coaching is one of the fastest-growing and in-demand business opportunities globally and no less right here in the UAE.  

According to a study of the International Coach Federation, there are more than 50,000 Life Coach Practitioners globally. They help clients identify aspects of their lives that need further development and create plans to reach those goals. 

The UAE government’s official activity description of Lifestyle Coaching: 

Provides advice and coaches to help clients transform from a sedentary lifestyle into healthier and more active, to achieve specific personal or professional goals in different human endeavours, ranging from their concerns in health, self-care, professional, sport, social, family, working closely with them to facilitate healthy and sustainable behaviour change, with a focus on improving personal behaviour as well as enhancing personal appearance

Lifestyle Coaching/Development Consultancy companies can be established in both Mainland and within the Free Zone Authorities. The most suitable licensing option will depend on various factors, such as jurisdiction of operation and office requirements. 

Since 2020, Lifestyle Coaching has become a regulated activity in the Emirate of Dubai and requires approval from DED. Therefore, a physical office minimum of 20sqm is mandatory to obtain the license. 

As “Lifestyle coaching” is a professional activity, the legal structure of the company will be a Sole Establishment or a Civil Company if your company is incorporated in the mainland, therefore the company liability will be unlimited. A mainland company will have no limitations of operation. 

However, if incorporated in a Free Zone, the legal structure will be LLC with operational limitations. Services can be provided within the Free Zone jurisdiction or internationally.  

Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) has recently launched a Freelance License for solo entrepreneurs and Lifestyle Coaching is one of the available activities. This license does not have any office requirement, but sponsorship of employees is not possible. An attested degree/ certificate/ proof of expertise in chosen business activity is required to obtain this license. 

No matter which jurisdiction the business is set up in, Lifestyle Coaching activity in the UAE, does not permit the company to carry out the following activities related to:

  • sports
  • fitness training
  • advice on diet and nutrition
  • any alternative or non-medical therapies or treatments

as these are regulated by other 3rd party authorities and require related approvals.
