Individual Coaching

Individual life coaching sessions are conducted one-on-one, either in person, or on the telephone. At the initial session, the coach asks the client to share history, current goals, successes and challenges. Together the coach and the individual design a working alliance and set a schedule for regular meetings.  
Ridgway coaching services are built around the co-active model which is based on the understanding that the individual being coached is creative, resourceful and whole, and fully capable of setting his/her own goals and solving his/her problems. For each session, the client sets the agenda which includes a desire to change in one or more of the following areas:

  • Setting and/or achieving new goals
  • Improving performance
  • Adopting and using new practices and/or strategies
  • Establishing new habits and /or enjoying an improved quality of life

 
Whatever the need may be, the life coach is always available and honest. The coach “dances in the moment," listens for words spoken and unspoken, and asks powerful questions for the purpose of deepening the client's personal knowledge and empowering the individual to take new action.

Logistics
Upon a request for coaching, a time is arranged for an introductory session either in person or by telephone. During this session, an alliance will be designed which will include the type of coaching desired (one-on-one, group, in person or by telephone) and the time and place for the sessions. Coaching appointments are typically for one hour and are usually held weekly.

Payment/Fees
One hour sessions are $80; one-half hour sessions are $45. A mileage charge may be added for personal coaching in the client’s home.  
Clients will be billed monthly.

Returning Students/clients:     $70.00 per hour/$40 per half hour
        New Students/clients:     $80.00 per hour/$45 per half hour

Duration of Coaching
The length of time required in order for coaching to be effective depends upon individual need(s).  Research indicates that at least six to eight weeks are necessary for an individual to begin to make life changes, establish new routines, and form new habits.
