Coaches support clients by providing encouragement, feedback, and practical suggestions to address specific challenges as well as holding them accountable for following through on their goals.
To be ready for coaching, clients must be able to admit that they have challenges, want to make changes, willing to spend the time necessary to create strategies for improving their behavior and willing to adhere to those strategies to the best of their ability.
Before the coaching process begins, the client and the coach will have an in-depth initial session, typically lasting one to 1 ½ hours, that addresses issues such as client needs, expectations of the client and of the coach, informational paperwork, fees and payments (coaching services are often not covered by traditional health insurance) and length of time for the coaching contract. Change does not happen overnight, so it is highly recommended that the coaching contract reflect a reasonable time commitment in order to achieve set goals, though this is not mandatory for services. Most coaching contracts are six weeks to a full semester, depending on the client's needs.
Regular weekly meetings and check-ins are an essential part of the coaching process. Meetings generally last 30-50 minutes. These sessions can be conducted in person, online, by phone, or by text message (check-ins only) depending on the client’s preference.
At the end of the specified coaching contract period, an evaluation session is held to determine objectively if progress has been made and to decide upon the client’s next step. Clients may choose to continue with the same meeting schedule, readjust it or terminate coaching services.
Fees are available upon request and are subject to change.
