Frequently Asked Questions about Life Coaching
Do you coach individuals who live in other places? Yes, we coach clients all over the world via video chat (Skype, Facetime, Zoom) & over the phone
Is it more effective to coach in-person then long-distance? No, Coaching is equally effective in-person or remotely. Coaching is about the dialogue and the exploration of self. There is no need to be in the same room to facilitate this growth and learning.
How long are Life Coaching sessions? Sessions are 45-70 minutes depending on what we are working on. Most often, they are about 55-60min.
How is hiring a Life-Coach different then talking with my friends? Many people think that if they have a bunch of good friends to talk things over with - the wouldn't benefit from seeing a coach. This couldn't be further from the truth. A Life Coach is a professional trained individual, licensed and certified to do the work they do. Not only does a Life Coach hold a non-judgmental no-agenda space for you (something your friends can't do), but they have specific tools to help you isolate and identify your limiting beliefs, clarify your goals and purpose, and step into your personal power.
How long will I work with you before I see changes in my life? Our clients start seeing results immediately. During your First-Time Free session we will evaluate how ready you are for life coaching. If you are ready, great - We are confident that you will see results right away. If I don't feel that you are ready to take action towards what you want, we will let you know, and we can discuss what would need to occur in order for you do become a client. We know how to get results. Individuals select our Coaches when they are ready for the change they want. This is why we only accept clients who are committed to the process.
Why do you recommend 3 to 6 month commitment? Research shows that it takes about 3-6 months to really have the time to examine your limiting beliefs and re-train your brain! Often times when we desire change in our lives - there is also this other part of us that is scared and wants to run away. When you make a coaching commitment, we will discuss your "Chicken Exits" (usual excuses you give yourself and others) that keeps you from getting what you want. This way we can ensure that you have the tools and ability to blaze forward like you never have before.
What if I don't want to make a commitment to coaching regularly? That's fine too. One of the great things about coaching is that it is very flexible. Some clients just call when they need to schedule sessions at random intervals (sometimes every week, and then not for a month, and then again 2 weeks in a row, 6 months later). We also have people that meet 2 times per week for 60min per session, and others that do a 30min session every other week. Recently, a client and I decided to meet for 15 min every Monday morning, and text for 5-10 min every Friday afternoon. During your First-Time Free session, we can create a system that works for you.
How much is it going to cost me? We work with all sorts of people in all sorts of income brackets. Our standard rate is $95-$125/per session and we offer discounts for purchasing sessions in bulk. Remember, there is no price tag on your dreams and your happiness. Coaching isn't expensive - it's priceless. Please don't let your beliefs about money get in the way of you experiencing more satisfaction in your life. (You only live once- Live BIG!)
I want to coach, but my (husband, wife, kids, parents) can't know about it - can we still coach? Of course. Our sessions are 100% confidential, and we have a very flexible schedule (including nights and weekends) to meet your needs.
What if I decide that coaching is not for me after we start? Although I ask for a commitment - We do not require a contract. If you are not happy with your coaching at any time, please let me know, and we can make whatever changes need to be made to our relationship.
