I am so thankful I chose to work with you, Stephane, on my relationship struggles. You really took the time and effort to completely understand my situation with my husband and I. Already you have helped me identify the real issues I am going through, not just the problems I am complaining about and that for me was a major breakthrough. For the first time I felt understood and that helped me to better understand my situation. I so look forward to our continued sessions and for the first time I feel hopeful about my marriage. I honestly recommend Stephane's coaching for anyone going through relationship challenges, he's a breath of fresh air who really cares!Mar 15, 2016Verified
Did the best he could provided the limited amount of sessions that we underwent. I feel as though the feedback was a bit general though, and I didn't find what I was looking for, in actuality. The approach was more focused on a time-management basis vs. a determining a best path basis. Appreciative anyway.Mar 4, 2016Strategic Life Coaching's reply
Thank you Brian for taking the time to write a review. I know when I first became a coach you were one of my first clients and I recall we had only one session together. I apologize that I did not meet your expectations during that one session. Since that time I have refined my process and made many improvements to my coaching style. I would love to offer you a complimentary session to review your goals and discuss how I can better assist you today.
I reached out to Stephane in a crisis mode after being recommended by a friend. It was a dire situation and Stephane immediately helped me calm down, made me feel at ease. Ever since that first call, it has been an eye opening experience in learning about myself, working through my issues all through the exercises that Stephane has provided. To begin with, he is very personable, genuinely interested in your situation, takes time to really understand it, gets to the bottom of it, and try to sort it from there. He is someone you will instantly feel like trusting. The fact that he has so much experience in dealing with personal and professional cases helps in him understanding your case better than you yourself would. Everyone should have a coach like Stephane regardless of whether one is going through a tough time in life or not. The other great thing about him is that he is not someone who will stop you right at the end of your time limit and say we agreed upon 1 hour and the time is up. He will complete the conversation, ask you if there's anything more you need help with (every single time) and provide that help if necessary even after your session is complete. He is also very responsive when it comes to messages. His short sessions are a life saver when you need to get in touch with him outside of scheduled sessions. The flexibility, the genuineness, the personable experience, the trust factor all make him a wonderful life coach. Be it a relationship issue or a career issue, he has the knowledge and experience to provide you with solutions through exercises that create wonders. I would highly recommend his service. Oh and you don't need to be local to avail his service. I myself am in Chicago and all my sessions have been via phone and he still "gets it" without seeing me in person. A genuine life coach/counselor for all personal and professional issues. Highly recommend!Mar 13, 2016Strategic Life Coaching's reply
Thank you Sandeep for taking the time to write a review! It's a pleasure to see how much you have grown over the last year and I am blessed to have had the opportunity to work with you! I look forward to see your continued growth.
Looking for help in adjusting to challenges I was having in my marriage brought me to Stephane's Strategic Life Coaching. I didn't know talking to a professional would help so much. I was not sure how to handle my situation with the problems my husband and I were having. Stephane was very patient, a good listener and asked questions that made me think. It was hard, but he helped me re-prioritize my thinking: what was most important to me, how to handle situations more positively. He made me realize that I was avoiding certain issues which was leaving me angry, not happy, and 'stuck' in my relationship. Now Im handling things more confidently, our communication is clearer and our relationship is much stronger. Thank you so much, Stephane, for being there for me when I needed it!Mar 12, 2016Strategic Life Coaching's reply
Thank you Nadine for taking the time to write a review about your relationship counseling experience with me. You are a wonderful person who deserves to have an extraordinary relationship and not just settle for an ok relationship. I am so happy to hear your relationship is stronger now than ever and I look forward to our continued work together!
I utilized Stephane Allinquant's Strategic Life Coaching to get a fresh start in connecting with my young adult daughter. She and I had been estranged from each other for over two years. It was tremendously painful for me and I just didn't see a good path forward. I was having trouble communicating with her without blaming her or being judgemental. Stephane listened very well and asked me the 'good questions' that I needed to be asked. He helped me get unstuck and gave me hope that things could be better with my daughter. Once he helped me understand, Stephane then helped me focus on better approaches for communicating that were positive, not blaming. He gave me new confidence and the specific skills to handle things more positively. He helped me through the big changes I needed to make and I am so grateful that he was there with the 'right stuff' when I needed it so badly. Now, with my new tools and confidence, my daughter and I reached a wonderful breakthrough and we are able to be close again like I'd hoped for so long. Thank so much, Stephane for helping my daughter and I make our breakthrough!Mar 9, 2016Strategic Life Coaching's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Clients can choose to pay for single coaching sessions as needed or choose to purchase a Coaching Package to help curb the cost of single sessions. Coaching Packages come in blocks of 4 sessions and every 4 sessions purchased must be completed within 2 months. Clients also have the option to pay for coaching in installments if they choose to do so and this can be discussed further in your consultation. My Standard Pricing is as follows: SINGLE SESSION: $179/60min Session -1 MONTH COACHING PACKAGE: $597 - 4-60min Sessions & 2-15min Mini-Sessions Unlimited access to me by text or email for 2 months. -2 MONTH COACHING PACKAGE: $997 - 8-60min Sessions & 4-15min Mini-Sessons w/ Unlimited Access to me by text or email for 4 months -3 MONTH COACHING PACKAGE: $1,391 - 12-60min Sessions & 8-15min Mini-Sessons w/ Unlimited Access to me by text or email for 6 months. As you can see the longer your commitment to coaching the less your cost for coaching is. Please know that I understand some people have financial difficulties yet really do need coaching, thus I will work with clients on pricing that will be a win-win for both parties.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For each client I begin with a Free 30min Coaching Consultation or as I also like to call it a Discovery Session. During this session we will go over your goals, challenges, and expectations for coaching. Once your sessions is complete you will be asked to take the 6 Human Needs Questionnaire to help us discover your daily motivations and behaviors. The results will be used if you choose to move forward. You are never under any obligation to continue coaching past your free session and you will never feel pressured to work with me. I believe the desire to begin coaching must come from our own willingness to changes our lives.
