How often should I see a Life Coach to achieve my goals?

In my several years of experience working with clients, I’ve found that around once a week is usually best to start, and then it can be reduced to every other week, every third week, and even once a month or less, all based on the particular person.  Starting with once a week sessions provides regular checkpoints on the way toward your goals and helps build momentum of progress.  It also doesn’t allow very long to get off track and lose momentum before touching base and regaining perspective and clarity about next steps and the motivation to take them.

While some people just need to be pointed in the right direction with a couple of sessions, in order to accomplish larger aims, most people benefit from a series of sessions, even if not all that frequent.  However, again, starting with regular weekly (or every other week) sessions definitely produces the greatest positive results in the vast majority of cases, even if the sessions are short, since they keep people on track and moving forward at the most pivotal part of the process when a new way of being, thinking, behaving, and responding to what’s happening in life is being adopted and integrated.  It’s easy to think you understand a concept and how to apply it, and still to be bringing in old patterns and habits in your interpretation; regular sessions allow your understanding to be clarified and the new ways of doing things to be refined and practiced successfully as you learn from your experiences and move forward with your coach.

In summary, in order to stay on track toward your goals, once a week to start, or every other week at the least, is best.  Less often and you’re likely to fall back into old patterns and take significantly longer than otherwise to reach your goals.

If you’re ready to get started on track and building momentum toward achieving your goals, I’d be glad to hear from you.  Schedule your free session with me now and we’ll get started right away!

This varies according to each individual. Some people are more motivated naturally than others, so they might only need a couple of sessions. Others may need a little longer. Some people like to have a Life Coach that they see regularly, to help them deal with the ups and downs of life. Depending on the motivation and the current life situation being looked at 4 – 6 sessions minimum is best to help the client implement complete change towards their life goal.

It all depends on what you're looking for and what Coach you choose.

Each coach has their own approach and their way of going about coaching.

I had a coach who did 3 calls a month, but I prefer weekly call with my clients to keep up consistency and accountability.

A lot of coaches also give you access to them through email, so that may speed up the process for you.

If you have a sense of what you want, it may come easier for you to find what you need in fewer sessions versus if you are at a crossroads in life and you want more guidance.

Also, some coaches, like me, do energy healing and health coaching as well, which brings a different perspective and depth to the party.

In my coaching, we decide what types of sessions are best for you and we make a package or we do a solo-session based on your needs.

Many other coaches have set packages you must purchase to work with them.

I would look at a few coaches before deciding, have a chat with them and see not only what they offer, but their process and how they work with people before signing up for packages or sessions with them.

Regardless of what you choose, there are is no wrong way, just opportunities to learn what you like and what you don't: from there is where you find the real answers.
