How much does a life coach cost?

A life coach helps clients attain personal and professional goals. People commonly seek coaching help with relationships, career, developing positive habits, dealing with stress and spirituality. Life coaching can be a one-time meeting or an ongoing professional relationship. Meetings can take place in the client’s home or office, the life coach’s studio, or via Skype.

Single sessions

Some life coaches offer individual sessions for clients who are seeking short-term guidance or help with goal-setting. They also work with ongoing clients who prefer to pay on a session-by-session basis. Merlin Coaching in Melrose, Massachusetts, charges $125 for a single, 50-minute session.

Life coaching packages

Some life coaches offer package deals for ongoing clients. Clients may want to work with a coach over a period of time to explore life transitions, relationships, career or professional growth, or lifestyle changes. The more sessions and interaction provided in the package, the higher the cost—although the more savings per session. Here are a couple examples of tiered pricing for packages:
