Life coaching sessions typically last for 30 minutes and usually occur by phone. This is important, as it means it will minimize the time commitment required from you and it will also allow you to find the best fit for your needs, regardless of where the coach is located. That means you are not limited by geographic location and in fact can open up your search for the perfect life coach to anywhere in the country or even the world, if need be.
How To Find A Life Coach
There are many life coaches in the United States today, as well as in many other countries. Therefore, finding the right one for you may take some time and patience. You can work through one of the many membership services available over the Internet, such as The Coach Connection and Lowcost Life Coaching. Places like these usually offer access to a directory of life coaches. Some of them require membership fees but in return, provide discounted session rates for a specified period of time.
If you prefer to find a life coach on your own, you can do a search online to find some possible matches, or ask family, friends and colleagues for recommendations from people they’ve used. Some people recommend talking with several perspective matches to see who you feel most comfortable with.
What It Costs
Many life coaches don’t announce their fees up front because they prefer to talk to potential clients over the phone to explain the benefits they can bring before they talk about the money piece. This can make it difficult to compare prices when you are considering between several possible matches. But there are some general guidelines that can at least give you an idea of what to expect.
The typical going rate for life coaching in the United States is in the range of $50 to $250 for a half-hour session.
Since seeing a life coach can be quite a financial commitment, some life coaches (and also some of the membership agencies that provide the link between life coaches and clients) charge a set monthly fee that covers one session each week.
Monthly arrangements are often between $250 and $500 a month and can be a cost-effective option for multiple visits.
