Introduction: My name is Ben Farber, and I help people and relationships become the best version of themselves. I believe human beings are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole, and as your coach, my job will be to help you access your own inner wisdom and find your own path forward. My approach to working with both individuals and relationships can be summarized by the 4 A's: 1) ALLIANCE Our coaching relationship will be a partnership between you and me that is fully dedicated to you. One of the first questions I will ask during our first session is "What do you need in order for this relationship to be safe and powerful for you?" The agreements we make during this discussion will help create a strong foundation for our alliance. 2) AWARENESS Once our alliance is established, you will begin to gain awareness of what you truly want, what's holding you back, and what you need to do in order to move forward. I will use powerful questions, reflective observation, embodied presence, and a variety of other coaching techniques to help you along the way. 3) ACTION Only you can take the action necessary to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be. With your newfound awareness in mind, we'll brainstorm possible actions together, and you will commit to the ones that you believe have the most impact. 4) ACCOUNTABILITY Commitments can end up being worthless without accountability for follow-through. We will use a powerful online coaching platform to track your commitments, measure progress, capture key learnings, and stay connected between our sessions. If you don't follow through on something you say you're going to do, I will not sweep it under the rug, nor will I criticize you. Instead, I will get curious about what got in the way, and we will collaborate to figure out the best path forward. My style is warm, thought-provoking, and fun, and I work with adults of all ages. If you're interested in learning more, please reach out so we can schedule a free introductory video chat and see whether we are a good fit. I would love to have a chance to meet you.

In working with Ben, I came to realize that I have so much power and focus already within me. He guided me to more clarity about what I want and how to achieve it, and we had a lot of fun manifesting things along the way.

Can't wait to work with Ben more in the future. He challenged me in ways I had not been challenged and he was very helpful in the one session we have had to date. Truly a gem!

Ben is someone who is passionate about helping his clients. I approached Ben with some roadblocks I was having and he immediately went to work by creating a space where we could dive deeper to look at why these roadblocks were there and how we could approach them to knock them down. Ben supported me the entire time and helped me process the ideas into smaller and manageable goals. I would definitely recommend Ben for coaching.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I currently offer a variety of options for new individual clients depending on how long you want to commit to progress and how much support you want along the way. The price of my least expensive offering for new clients is $1,275. All packages include email support between sessions and access to an online coaching platform.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We begin with a free initial conversation to get a feel for our chemistry and allow you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have for me. Then, if we both decide to move forward, I will ask you to e-sign a Coaching Agreement that outlines how we will work together. Next, we will hold our Foundation Session, where we discuss high-level goals for our partnership and identify some of your inner resources that we will use over the course of our coaching to help you achieve those goals. After that, we will meet weekly, every other week, or monthly for coaching on specific topics related to your overall goals for our partnership. Between our sessions, we will stay connected using an online coaching platform.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am certified by the International Coaching Federation and the Co-Active Training Institute and have completed over 250 hours of accredited training in both individual coaching and relationship coaching. I am also certified in the Hogan personality assessments, which can help support individuals focused on professional development.
