How much does coaching cost?

The first question on most people's minds is "how much will this cost me"? Unfortunately there is no single answer as most coaches offer a few different packages, give discounts for lump-sum payments and even offer session to session rates. 

Further complicating matters is that coaches generally raise rates (for new clients) as they obtain more training and achieve greater certification levels. As each coach tends to be the president and CEO of their own business you will find a wide range of prices out there. 

In practice I have found many coaches don't disclose pricing on their websites and instead discuss rates during an introductory call. While there's nothing wrong with this approach I prefer to have the "cards on the table" before we even speak so that we can be 100% focused on you during your introductory call

As you continue reading, please keep in mind rates are subject to change over time. The rates posted are current as of August 1, 2017. If you feel you cannot afford the rates but still desire coaching please contact me. There may be a scholarship available or we may be able to negotiate a "sliding scale" rate.  

Packages

3 Month Package

Clients who are willing to commit to three months of coaching find more benefit than those who engage for only a month or two. In fact most clients will choose to continue coaching past three months but are uncomfortable committing to more than 3 months at a time. 

Each month you receive 3 coaching sessions of up to one hour in length at a cost of $365 per month. Should you choose to pay for all 3 months at one time I'm happy to offer you a discount of $100. 

All sessions in this package are to be used within a 100 day period. 

1 Month "Trial" Package

If you just want to try coaching before committing to a formal package, I offer a one month package of 3 sessions for $400. After the first month you'll want to move into a "3 Month" or "Full Year" package. 

All sessions in this package are to be used within a 35 day period. 

Full Year of Coaching

If I am not the only coach offering a yearly package I am certainly one of the few. While this package is not for everyone I understand some people enjoy the security and accountability of paying for a year's worth of sessions up front. Others like receiving and paying just one invoice per year for the sake of simplicity. Still others like knowing they've "gotten the best deal". 

With this package you receive 36 sessions to be used over the course of 12 months at an up-front cost of $2950, saving you over $1000 for the year! If you are interested in this package please mention it when making your introductory call appointment. 

All sessions in this package are to be used within a 375 day period. 

Packages Include

All of the packages mentioned above come with support via e-mail, text and one-off phone calls. E-mail and Text are usually returned within 24 hours, sooner on "business days". These calls are intended to be a "tune-up" between sessions and are limited to 10 minutes per call. They are meant to assist with achievement of the goals you set out during individual sessions.

In general I've found clients use our "tune-up" calls sparingly however when scheduled they are highly focused and very effective. There is a soft limit of two "tune-up" calls per month however I am flexible for times when you may be implementing many changes or facing multiple challenges. 

 

Scholarships and Sliding Scale

Scholarships and Sliding Scale rates offer those with limited means the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of coaching at a cost they can afford. 

I encourage you to join the scholarship list if you are in a financially difficult situation but please do so only if you genuinely cannot afford the rates posted above.
