Life Coaching Questions
How Much Does a Life Coach Cost?
A great life coach is priceless — having a supportive partner to motivate you, challenge you, and help you become your very best self is invaluable. But at Denver’s Growing Self Counseling and Life Coaching it’s also affordable. This is because we believe that meaningful, effective personal growth work should be accessible to everyone: Both in price, and in convenience.
For this reason we keep our prices for effective life coaching well below the national average. And our “accessibility mission” means that we make working with us easy and convenient in every way. That’s why we are always available to meet with you through online videoconferencing (Skype, FaceTime and Zoom), whether you live in Denver, in one of Colorado’s beautiful mountain towns, across the US — even internationally.
Our Rates For Life Coaching
Because of our mission to make growth work accessible to everyone, we keep our rates very low. Depending on who you work with in our practice, your rate per session will be between $105 and $150. If your financial circumstances qualify you, you may also be eligible for our even lower sliding scale rates which start at $50 per session.
Furthermore, you will never be asked to sign a contract requiring you to complete (or pre-pay for) a certain number of sessions in advance. We provide effective coaching, and we’ll prove the value of our services through our work together.
The Actual Cost of Life Coaching Varies By Where You Are in The Work
Coaching happens in phases, so your actual monthly cost of coaching will vary depending on what phase of the work you are in. Understanding the process of coaching will help you determine how money you will be investing in your growth and on achieving your goals, on a month-to-month basis.
Getting Traction: Weekly Life Coaching Sessions
At the beginning of coaching, it is helpful to meet weekly a few times, in order to get traction. At this stage you and your coach are digging in to your inner and external obstacles, and you’re learning new and exciting things about yourself every week. This self-discovery process lays the foundation for the action-oriented work to come.
Building Momentum: Every-Other-Week Life Coaching Sessions
Once you begin to create self awareness and movement through your homework assignments, it’s actually most helpful to cut back on weekly meetings so that you have more time and space to practice the skills, strategies, and ideas that you’re learning in life coaching. During this phase our clients usually meet with us every other week.
Making Things Happen: Monthly Life Coaching Sessions
Then, once you’re making good progress consistently, we’ll cut back to monthly meetings. This allows you to stand on your own, test your new skills, and determine where you’re good and where you need more support. Monthly life coaching sessions help you stay on track long term.
Maintaining Your Gains: Quarterly Life Coaching Sessions
Once they’ve met their goals, most people choose to stay connected with their coach and meet for quarterly “check in” sessions. This allows them to review what strategies are working well and what needs to be tweaked in order to continue their forward progress. It also helps people maintain their progress and continue working towards long-term goals with out backsliding. Invest in yourself, and in your life. You are worth it.
