My pricing philosophy
Two core ideas inform my pricing philosophy. First, I aim to offer high quality, professional coaching to a broad array of clients. Second, in order for coaching to be effective, I believe clients must value the coaching collaboration.
Below are answers to common questions about my pricing. At the start of the coaching engagement, each client is provided with a full explanation of all policies and terms.
What is the value of coaching?
I encourage all clients to consider the value of achieving the goals they have set for themselves. What's it worth to have that new job? A business plan in place for your new venture? Greater confidence in leading your team? A demonstrated commitment to your health and well-being?
Then consider what you are prepared to invest to capture that value — in terms of time, energy, and funds. Keep in mind, most of the investment you make in coaching is an investment in yourself.
Finally, consider the benefits of having a committed and impartial partner accompany you on this journey. I cannot promise that you will achieve your goals. But I do promise to be your dedicated collaborator — offering my perspectives, but more importantly, helping you achieve greater clarity about your views. What is such a partnership worth to you?
How many sessions will it "take"?
Change takes time, and so does coaching. To realize the often transformational benefits of coaching may require consistent effort over several months. For many clients, I suggest an initial three-month collaboration of bi-weekly sessions, after which time we assess to see if additional sessions would be beneficial. That said, I often work with clients for 8 - 12 months; my minimum engagement is four sessions.
During the initial discovery session, we will establish a coaching agreement, which will include our joint assessment of how long we'll work together and how often we'll have sessions.
Note, this is an agreement, not a contract. You are never obligated to continue to work with me as your coach. Similarly, if I feel we are not making progress or that I am not the best professional to meet your needs, I can also elect to end the engagement.
How much do sessions cost?
I offer sessions on a pay-as you-you go basis as well as via a pre-paid package.
All coaching series include one discovery session at the start and then standard sessions of 45-50 minutes each for the duration of the series. For most clients, I recommend an initial collaboration of six sessions over a three-month period. However, the frequency and duration of sessions is something we discuss at the outset of our work together.
Discovery sessions are $125 and last 60-75 minutes.
Standard sessions are $100 and last 45-50 minutes.
Short sessions are $65 and last 25-30 minutes (Note: These sessions are only available to those who have finished a coaching series within the previous two months.)
Six Session Package
The six-session package is priced at $525, payable in advance, and includes one discovery session and five standard sessions. This saves you $100 when compared to the 'pay as you go' rate — it's like getting one session for free.
If you are not satisfied with your coaching experience after the first session, you may request a full refund. At any time during our partnership, if either of us decides that we are not making good progress and elects to end our collaboration, you will receive a pro-rated refund.
How does payment work?
Clients pay online via credit/debit card through my scheduling system. Payment is required when you book your session. If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, you will receive a refund, as long as you cancel/reschedule at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled session.
