How long do clients typically work with me as their coach?
Most of my clients choose to work with me on a continuing basis for 6 months minimum or more, based on their needs and level of commitment. Some new relational skills and behaviors put into practice show results immediately, while some others show results months from now.
Relationship coaching work is not meant to be a “quick fix” or a short-term effort. The learning that takes place creates lasting and sustainable results. While coaching can be very effective for short-term change, some of my clients receive coaching for an average of 12 to 24 months, especially for those looking for deep lasting change.
How does payment work?
Payment is expected per session, without the need to commit. You pay as you go. We want you to come to the sessions because you see the value, not because we hold the money you’ve paid in advance. However… If you want to take advantage of $50-$200 discounts, 4, 6, or 12 sessions packages are available for your particular service at the time of your booking. Please contact mefor more details.
What results can I expect working with you?
See the Testimonials page for examples of results. In general, most clients report results that include: Greater respect, mental clarity, courage, inner peace, emotional connectedness and satisfaction, and healthier boundaries in their individual and relational lives.
The results are often dependent upon you and your determination to not only apply the learning and tools, but to also decide that nothing will stop you from getting the results you desire.
What does the coaching process entail?
The coaching process is personally customized to your needs and depends entirely on you and your concerns, wants, pace, and your level of commitment to doing the work.
In general, though, we begin with a thorough intake process to go over your needs, issues, challenges, intentions, and desires that brought you in. That process also includes going over all dimensions of your being (mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, relational) in depth so I can understand more about your experiences as a whole.
From all that talking and clarifying, we get to work on building action plans and trying on tools and techniques that are most effective for you. In this, there is going to be much talking, learning, and growing. One of the most incredible things about coaching is how much we get to uncover of ourselves when a skilled guide can ask the powerful questions that open up our unexamined assumptions and habits and gifts and wisdom within you.
What if I can not afford your sessions, but I really need and want the support?
