How Coaching Works

I believe it’s important for you to understand my coaching style and expectations for our working relationship. This will enable us to work together more efficiently, and for you to achieve the greatest success.

We will meet [BIWEEKLY] at schedule  [TIME/DAY/DATE]. Before our meeting, you will complete the ongoing pre-call form and return it to me no later than 24 hours before our scheduled appointment. To prepare for our call, you will decide on what area you’d like to focus on. If you are unsure, then I will help you to determine where my help can be the most effective.

You will take the time to do the work necessary to grow. Coaching is not a “done for you” relationship. You must commit to doing the work, or you will not have satisfactory results. If at the time of our meeting, you are unprepared, we will reschedule to give you time to complete the work necessary to move forward. Each month we will prepare and review the monthly review form so that we can both know you are benefiting from our relationship. If at any time one of us feels you are not benefiting, we will agree to end our relationship.

Coaching Success Guidelines

Strategic coaching can help you to meet the goals that you have for your health, relationship, and personal life when you take the time to develop a solid relationship with the coaching profession. It is the coach’s objective to motivate you and hold you accountable for achieving your goals. From an outside standpoint, a Strategic Coach may be able to see areas of concern that you are not able to discern. In that sense, the process raises your awareness of a different way to handle your approach to your goals and changes.

What is Expected of The Client

The client is expected to attend each session on time and ready to work. They may need to be open to changes in their goals as the coaching process evolves. Coaches are not judgmental but impartial. To that end, coaches will ask the tough questions and expect the tough answers in order for growth to take place both personally and professionally, but only as it pertains to the goal and changes you're seeking. However, clients do maintain the right to decide what topics to cover and to terminate a subject if they don’t want to discuss it further.

Can I Book an Intake Session?

Yes, I will send you an intake form via email after you have agreed and signed the Coaching Agreement. The form will need to be returned before the first initial session.

What Are Your Fees?

My fees are listed on the booking session of the website and vary depending on the type of coaching you are seeking. All sessions are booked in packages. Each coaching package has the length of the program, the duration of each session, how often we meet, and what's included in the program. 

Cancellation Policy

Clients maintain the right to cancel payment 2 weeks in advance of the billing date for the next month’s session. Cancellation must be done in writing by email to the following address: hello@coachinglifestrategically.com and email must be received before the new billing cycle or you will be charged for that month’s coaching session.

If you choose to pay for a package in full, if you decide to cancel before your sessions are complete you will be refunded the amount for the sessions not used. You are still expected to send a notice 2 weeks in advance before your next session date. 

If you need to cancel an appointment, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance of the appointment date to reschedule that month’s/ biweekly session.

Termination Policy

Termination of the coaching agreement may occur at the discretion of the coach when an impasse is reached with the client. As long as the client adheres to the Coaching Success Guidelines and the coach adheres to professional practices and standards, the relationship will continue. The goal is to better your life so all efforts will be made towards that end.

Examples of terminable offenses:

  • Lack of payment

  • Lack of adherence to Coaching Success Guidelines

  • Indifference on the part of the client to prescribed session action items
