What can I expect at my first coaching session?
Our first session together will last from 1 hour up to 1 hour and 15 minutes. During that time we will discuss the coaching agreement and your client intake form, and do some coaching as well. Each session is tailored to the client and will vary based on individual needs. After the initial session, the other sessions will be up to 1 hour in length. I follow the Christian Coaching Model which includes exploring awareness, vision, strategy and obstacles.
How does a coaching session by phone work?
I will provide you with a secure conference line number through freeconferencecall.com for each of our scheduled sessions. You and I both call into that number and conduct our coaching session by phone of by computer. This saves you valuable commuting time and opens up your flexibility in planning coaching sessions because you can speak to me from the location of your choosing. Alternatively, we can use a video conferencing service or meet in person if you desire.
Why do I need a coach? Can I do it on my own?
Life coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations. More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way. A personal Coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you realize your patterns and habits. Most people experience that they are more efficient when working with a Professional Life Coach and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential. Life coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you support and encouragement along the way.
How long do people work with a life coach?
Some clients just need a one month package to get launched on a new perspective. To experience the effectiveness of a life coaching program, I suggest clients make a commitment to 6 coaching sessions over a 9 week period. This is the Adventurous Coaching Package. At the end of that commitment, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching.
Is personal life coaching confidential?
What is discussed will be held in confidence and not shared with others without your permission. Coach-client discussions are not privileged for legal purposes such as the privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys. However coaches will only disclose confidential information in the extenuating circumstance where the law would require your information to be shared such as in a case where it is necessary to prevent foreseeable imminent harm to one's self or another.
I'm interested, but what if I can't afford it?
If a coaching package you are interested in is out of your budget, we will set up a payment plan where you will be able to break the cost up into equal installments.
What if I need to cancel?
I require a 24 hour notice to cancel all sessions. Please be sure to contact me if you will not be able to make your scheduled appointment in order to avoid being charged for the session.
