Frequently Asked Questions
What happens during the complimentary coaching session?
The purpose of the complimentary call is to give you a chance to share your health goals with me and begin to get a sense of how working with me will help you develop some new strategies for accomplishing those goals.
How often are coaching sessions?
You determine how often we’ll meet. As I often say to clients: “You’re flying this plane, I’m your co-pilot. Tell me where you want to go, and I’ll guide you on how to get there.” You are the one, not me, who decides whether our sessions will be weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or ‘as needed’.
What is the format for coaching sessions?
Most people prefer sessions using a video format such as FaceTime, Zoom or Google Hangout. You choose the format which is most comfortable for you and I can set up the call. People who live near me in Northampton, MA have the added option of an in-person session while we walk around a nearby park.
What will each coaching session be like?
Every call tends to be unique as we address the issue(s) you consider most important to your overall sense of well-being. In the process of exploring your health goals and most powerful reasons for improving your life, we’ll focus on small, practical actions which can bring you measurable results and a sense that you are making steady progress on your health goals.
How much are coaching sessions?
Coaching sessions are $45 for a 30-minute session. In order to provide greater value for you, this fee includes email support between coaching sessions. Longer or shorter sessions can also be negotiated.
Are coaching conversations confidential?
Yes, absolutely. As a nationally certified health and wellness coach, I respect and honor the privacy of my clients. This includes not disclosing to others the names of the people I coach.
What if I don’t have the ability to pay for coaching?
I have a limited number of pro bono coaching slots for people who may not have the means to pay for coaching. All I ask in return is that pro bono clients assure me that they are volunteering for a worthy non-profit in their community or a progressive cause which works to improve our planet and its inhabitants. Please email me if you would like to take advantage of one of these slots.
