What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Yes. I charge $100 per session. If the client wishes to purchase a month package in advance, there's a discount per session. A one month package with four sessions is $380. A three month package has a further discount and is $1100.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I talk with a prospective client during our free 15 minute session and listen to what they desire to achieve. If they would like to become a client and purchase a coaching package then we have 4 coaching sessions per month for 1 to 3 months, depending on what their need and goal is. I give homework and I am available as a support throughout our coaching relationship.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am trained as a School Counselor and worked in the field. I attended a 2 year graduate Christian training program and worked in campus ministry with College age students. I also trained as a life coach to broaden my ability to help people.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was in high school, I helped my peers choose what they wanted to major in at College. It was very satisfying to me and my friends seemed to get the help they needed.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Junior High, High School and College students. Recent graduates new to the work force. Mom's wanting to go back to work now that their children are older. Those in their 30's struggling with finding meaning and joy in their jobs.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Meeting with a mom who wants to go back to work but doesn't have a definite direction. She felt so relieved and overjoyed at finding her career path and we set realistic goals and she's made great progress in her career. It took 3 months.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find someone who really listens to you and doesn't just give you advice. Be empowered by them.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
In my area of work, they should be asking themselves if they really want change and if they're willing to put in some work. There's so many possibilities if someone has that mindset, or is willing to have it.
