Questions often asked about Coaching?
Q: What is the difference between Coaching and Therapy/Counseling?
A. Christian Life Coach will encourage, direct, train and correct from a distinctively Christian life perspective. Coaching starts with a full assessment of the client’s needs, but coaching goals will be focused much more on the present and the future. If the coach finds that the client needs therapy before a coaching relationship can be established, the coach will refer the client to a therapist.
In comparison, therapy/counseling, helps a client explore the past, present and future (focusing a lot more on the past), and therapy goals are set as a result of the intake session and a full assessment of the client’s needs.
Q: How often and how long do we come for our appointments?
A: Usually, appointments are scheduled once a week for a 50-90 min. sessions. The length of time can be determined by the client and therapist on an individual case-by-case basis. As progress is made, therapy sessions are extended to bi-weekly, monthly, or quarterly. It can be helpful for clients to maintain bi-annual or annual sessions, similar to physical checkups one would have with their medical physician.
Q: Can I pay for someone else’s appointment?
A: Yes. If the client agrees, and if they sign a release that allows us to bill a third party on their behalf.
Q: How long do I have to wait for an appointment?
A: Generally, an appointment can be made within a 1-2 week’s time or possibly sooner.
Q: Do you accept insurance?
A: As a Biblical Life Coach, I do not take insurance.
Q: What forms of payment can I use?
A: You may pay using cash, check, debit card, or credit card (I use square). For Tele therapy, I use Square or PayPal.
