One on One Coaching FAQ

What Can I Expect From Life Coaching?

Our sessions will last about 50 minutes, similar to a therapy session.  However while therapy looks backwards at your life, trying to determine how you got where you are, life coaching starts by looking at where you are and determine where you want to go.  Then we’ll break that picture into small steps to help you get there.  I say “we” but you’re the leader.  I will not set goals for you.  I will, however, hold you accountable for the goals you set.  That said, there may be a little homework on your part from session to session.  For example, if your goal is to learn Spanish, you may be asked to do a little research on ways to make that happen, be it classes, smart phone applications or watching telenovelas on TV. As my money mentor Dave Ramsey says, “A goal without a plan is just a dream.”  I’ll help you unearth the plan.

When you first call me, you’ll get a 30 minute “mini session” for free.  This is an opportunity for us to feel each other out.  Life Coaching is a very intimate process and coaches are not cookie cutter fits to every client.  Our mini session will be a sort of “getting to know you” call.  This is where you’ll tell me “where you are” that I mentioned above.  We won’t get into the meat of your hopes and dreams until your first full session after we determine that I’m the right coach for you.

How Often Are Our Sessions?

For you to get the most out of our time together, sessions are held weekly.   You need to make a routine of focusing on yourself and your goals.  If too much time elapses between sessions, it becomes too easy to lose focus.

How and Where Will We Meet?

We can meet in a local, private setting if you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, but it’s usually more convenient to conduct our sessions over the phone.  As always, this process is all about you and what works in your life.

How Do I Pay For My Sessions?

Sessions are paid in advance, through PayPal.  You can choose to pay monthly or weekly based on your personal budget.

What Will We Talk About?

Absolutely anything that’s important to you.  We can focus on relationships, finances, skills, health, spiritual matters, career, or any other area of your life you would like to improve.  All of these areas make up the wheel of life and when any of them is off balance, you’ll wobble like you’re riding on a flat tire.  We’ll identify where the imbalances are and work to correct them.
