I offer free, trial sessions, so that we can discover if we are a fit for one another. As much as I believe that I am an excellent (and modest) coach, I am not the right coach for everyone, nor is everyone the right client for me. If I feel we are not a fit, I may recommend another coach who might better serve your needs. Once we decide to take our coaching relationship to the next level, we will make an agreement, and we will do our longer initial intake and assessments. I request (but do not require) a minimum commitment of three months. (My policies and procedures are available on request, and will be available on my website after it launches.)
My fees depend upon whether you are coaching with me weekly or bi-weekly, and whether you are paying month to month or committing to longer, prepaid packages, for which I offer substantial discounts. My standard coaching agreement includes scheduled weekly calls of approximately one hour in length, with no additional charge for e-mail support and short, 5-10 minute laser coaching sessions when needed. My month-to-month coaching fee for weekly sessions is $397 per month. You may get more sessions with the monthly packages, since some months have more than four weeks. For twice-monthly sessions, I charge $275 per month. For the weekly sessions only, I have packages available at discounts of 15% to 30%, based on your length of commitment to coaching and prepayment of services, as follows:
- One year of coaching: $4,764 value, $3,374 paid in advance (a 30% savings!)
- Six months of coaching: $2,382 value, or $2,025 paid in advance (a 15% savings!)
- Three months of coaching: $1,191 value, or $1,071 paid in advance (a 10% savings!)
Coaching fees are non-refundable once coaching has commenced, as I have found that doing so compromises my clients’ commitments to their coaching goals. Exception: For coaching packages of three months or longer, if you decide within 72 hours after your first session that coaching is not for you or that we’re not the right fit after all, I will refund all but the pro-rated first session, based on my standard monthly rate then in effect. I will extend a 24-hour refund for any coaching package after the first session if there was no trial session (minus a pro-rated fee for the actual session)
Referral fees: My practice is based on word-of-mouth referrals. For every referral you send me who takes at least three months of coaching, you will receive your choice of 15% of my fee for that client’s first three months or a free month of coaching. Do you know some decision-makers in corporations and organizations? If you help me fill one of my Coach Training programs, you’ll get a finder’s fee of $500.
