Questions About Dating Coaching

What To Expect in Your Free Dating Coaching Consultation
Online Dating Coach • Denver Dating Coach • San Francisco Dating Coach • International Dating Consultant
If you’ve never been involved in private coaching before, you might have some (understandable) questions about what to expect, especially going into your first meeting with your dating coach. Here is more information to help put your mind at ease, plus some tips for how to get the most out of your dating coaching consultation session.

#1. Your Dating Coach Wants To Get To Know You.

Right after you schedule your first dating coaching consultation, you’ll be invited to fill out a short, online form telling your dating coach a little more about yourself, and your hopes for this work. (There’s a link to this form on the confirmation page when you schedule your appointment, and we’ll also follow up with an email, too). Filling out this form gives your dating coach the chance to learn a bit about you ahead of time so that they can prepare some follow up questions for your first meeting.

Additionally, you’ll be able to provide your dating coach with your contact information if you’re meeting online. Or if you’re meeting in person at one of our Denver, Broomfield, DTC, or San Francisco office locations you’ll get driving directions.

#3. You’ll Discuss Your Goals

During your consultation session, your dating coach will get to know you a little better. They’ll ask a few questions to get clarity about what your goals are for your personal growth work around dating, and relationships. If you don’t already have specific goals for dating coaching, that is okay. Sometimes it takes a few meetings to get clarity about what you want (and an accurate understanding of what has not been working) in order to develop realistic goals.

While your dating coach will certainly want to know what you’d like to get out of the work, you can rest assured that they will not be asking you probing, personal questions about your history or other life experiences. If you decide, after the first meeting, that it feels like a good fit, then you can dig deeper in your first “official” session with your dating coach. But your first consultation session is just a “getting to know each other,” with the objective being that you feel comfortable with you’ll be working with.

#3. You’ll Establish Goodness of Fit

More than anything, we want you to feel positive and comfortable about your relationship with your dating coach. For that reason, your dating coach will tell you a little more about themselves, their background, and their training so that you can make sure their style and experience is in line with what you’re looking for. Your dating coach will also discuss their practice policies and availability, and provide you with information about things like the cost of dating coaching, how long dating coaching will take, and the methods they use to help you get results. If your dating coach feels like you might benefit from seeing a different coach on our team, or would be better off using some of our other services, like our online dating coaching class, or dating administrative services as opposed to private dating coaching, they’ll provide you with a referral.

If you feel comfortable with your dating coach, what working with them would entail, then you can schedule your first official dating coaching session directly with them at a day, time and location that’s most convenient for you. If, for any reason (pricing, availability, or just a “feeling”) you can request to meet with a different dating coach. The coach you met with will help you get connected with a different dating coach on our team who might be a better fit for you.
