Girl telling about her problems on therapyThe Free Introductory Conversation

We invite you to contact us for a free introductory conversation by phone or video conference with your choice of coaches (Neil or Linda). This conversation is an opportunity for you to share what issues brought you to consider coaching, to learn more about our coaching program, and to ask any questions you might have. It also provides an opportunity for you and your potential coach to determine if you would enjoy working together in a coaching partnership. If both of you conclude this is a good fit and that you are sufficiently motivated to invest the necessary time and energy, the next step is to schedule a Discovery and Planning Session.  Contact us here to get started!

Occasionally a pre-screening conversation results in a referral to some other professional service.


The Discovery and Planning Session

This session usually lasts approximately 2 hours and takes place either in Warrenton, VA or by phone or video conference. In this session your coach will ask you about the challenges that brought you to coaching, and together you and your coach will begin to clarify and list your goals. Time will be spent examining your strengths, values, and motivation, since they will play a big role in moving you forward. We’ll also take a look at the kinds of things that might become obstacles to your progress and the types of incentives or rewards that work for you. The goals that are clarified during this session will serve as a road map for your coaching journey.

Having a Discovery and Planning Session involves no obligation for either the coach or client to continue with coaching. The session will have been successful if you leave it with greater clarity about your goals and challenges and some strategies for moving forward.


The Twelve-Session Coaching Package

A week or two after your Discovery and Planning Session, we can begin your twelve-session coaching journey. The weekly, fifty-minute coaching sessions can take place in Warrenton, VA, or by phone or video conference. These sessions will build on the planning and goal-setting done in the Discovery and Planning Session. You will bring areas of challenge to work on. Then, in partnership with your coach, you will find ways to leverage your strengths, talents, and passions to create new strategies, systems, and habits to address those challenges. Between the coaching sessions there can be one or two check-ins to help you keep moving along in alignment with your plan.
