Lisa S. says, "Chris was very helpful and asked a lot of questions about my massage needs. I was having problems with my ankle and wanted to get extra attention for it. He offered me the options of a massage at the Blue Lotus or at my home. I have now had two great massages from him, the 1st at the Blue Lotus and the 2nd at home. I have had several massages at massage places and at home, but none of the took the time to find out what I specifically needed to the extent that Chris did. It made a big difference to have a massage therapist, rather than masseuses or masseurs. My ankle is feeling much better. I highly recommend him. Professional, affordable, and caring service."

Your Life Coaching questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does a life coach cost near me?

A life coach costs $75 to $200 per session on average, depending on their experience. Rates are on the higher end of the range for coaches with extensive experience and certifications, or for well-known coaches that are in high demand.

Life coach package prices are $300 to $1,400 monthly for a bundle of 4 to 8 sessions. Most life coaches schedule weekly or biweekly sessions.

  • Most sessions last 1 hour.
  • Fees increase for packages that include phone and email support between sessions.
  • Some coaches offer an entire program for a flat fee instead of charging a per-session rate.

Online life coaching costs $50 to $100 per session and is a good option if you're interested in working with a coach outside your local area.

What is life coaching?

Life coaching is a customized guidance program that steers you to reach personal and professional goals more effectively. Coaches employ a range of proven methods from positive psychology to amplifying self-awareness, empowering you to achieve your utmost potential.

Are life coaches worth it?

When you want direction and encouragement in chasing your goals, life coaches are worth it. Their custom-tailored advice aids in recognizing strengths, establishing objectives, and making transformative changes that are challenging to accomplish alone.

What is the difference between a therapist and a life coach?

The primary difference between a therapist and a life coach lies in their qualifications. Therapists typically require state licensing and often a master's degree, whereas life coaching remains unregulated. Life coaches don't follow a nationally standardized education path. Instead, each life coach has unique specializations.

Does insurance cover life coaching?

Life coaching is typically not an expense that insurance will cover. Still, some coaches might provide sliding-scale charges, installment plans, or group sessions to accommodate more people.

If a life coach is also a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, certain health insurance plans might cover their sessions. Many health plans do provide coverage for emergency mental health services.

How do I know if a life coach is certified?

Verify a life coach's certification by looking for credentials like:

  • Certification from the International Coach Federation (ICF)
  • Training from the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC)
  • Academic qualifications in psychology, human services, communication, or counseling
  • Degrees in nutrition and health, especially if they offer dietary guidance

Remember to inquire about their training, client feedback, and professional references to confirm their experience.

How do I find a life coach near me?

Find coaching services by searching online-coaching directories, getting referrals from friends, or looking for a life coach near you on Thervo.

Consider these factors in your search:

  • Look for the best life coaches experienced in helping clients reach the goals you have.
  • For executive coaching, seek out those with a Master's degree in your field.
  • Ask if they get ongoing education or refresher courses.
  • Request a contract including the payment schedule and terms of service.
  • Be cautious about hiring the cheapest or the most expensive coach because the price isn't the only indicator of the quality of their services.

What questions do I ask before hiring a life coach?

Ask these questions before selecting the right life coach for you:

  • What's your main area of expertise in coaching?
  • Are your sessions online, in-person, or both?
  • Do you offer special rates for those between jobs?
  • Could you share feedback from past clients?
  • How many years have you been practicing life coaching?
  • Are there bundled packages for extended coaching?
  • What's your educational and training background?
  • Do you hold any coaching certifications?
  • How long do your coaching sessions typically last?
  • Is it possible to contact you after our sessions if I want more advice?
  • Will I get assignments, such as reading or maintaining a diary?
  • How do you monitor my growth?
  • Can I have a copy of your cancellation and refund policies?

Chris is very professional and this is a true therapeutic massage. He really listened to me and addressed my many areas of concern. He checked in throughout the massage making sure the pressure was okay and that he was focusing on the areas that I needed most. Also, he's just a really nice guy!
