‘How Much’ is Making a Change Worth to You?
I apologise if the title sounds a bit uncaring, I wanted to make a point and highlight that how do you value making a change in your life? –how do you quantify the monetary value of that?
Is the Value of the change you seek – greater or lesser – than the financial cost – it will be for you?
Do you only perceive the cost factor but neglect to recognise in the same moment, the value it brings to your Life?
Value usually exceeds cost because – cost without value is a waste. Value at a cost is inherently an asset, an investment. In other words it will provide a return to you. Evaluating situations from the value it brings you, versus the cost you will have to exchange is a masters path. These and other psychological evaluations that we make every day, determine in part our decisions, and thus actions that follow.
Life Coaching is not like a shop where there are fixed products for fixed prices on a shelf, as you will appreciate, everyone’s needs and outcomes will vary considerably, hence the payment structure needs to be bespoke as well as fixed where appropriate.
As you will read below, for Personal Coaching I offer an hourly rate, a daily rate and a bespoke service ( Guaranteed ).
For Business Coaching rates, please see the High End Executive Coaching page for details.
Important to note :
The payment you make for any service or any event is paid directly to a Registered Charity of my choice. I / DCR receive no payment whatsoever for any of my Coaching services. So any change you get to benefit from in making through me – also benefits a wonderful Charity that then – helps even more people.
This ripple effect is one of my personal plans for creating a better world, in my own small and humble way. Helping you helps me help a worthwhile cause bigger, than myself or you.
I am often asked why I do this or how can I do this. My response is simply to state the truth, I deeply care for people, and I am able to do this because I am fortunate enough to have Financial security in my own life and am doing whatever I can therefore to support this very special Charity that then goes on to help numerous souls in need.
Because of bureaucratic ‘you know what’ the future may mean I am unable to do this believe it or not and I must take the payment direct so that the government can take a taxation cut no doubt! but I will fight to keep it this way for as long as I can.
If you are looking for a fixed price for the bespoke service you won’t find one. I can only provide here the hourly and daily rates. Sorry. I understand it can be frustrating when you just want to know a price, but, that is the point of my title. How can I give you a price without knowing what you want!? a conversation is first required you will hopefully appreciate.
Each and every one of the thousands of clients I have worked with, is different: requirements are different, time parameters are different, outcomes desired are different and so the whole approach varies considerably from person to person.
Thus it is not practical to say it this amount or that amount without talking to the client and having a conversation that clarifies all the points that need to be factored in, once this is done, I can then present a proposal to the client.
So How Much?
In the first instance, I offer a free / no charge consultation session. This is where I get to understand in detail what change you are seeking specifically, and you get to ask me as many questions as you like. We both get to see if we ‘click’.
After this point, there are 3 options for my 1-2-1 services …
This is where I will Guarantee my work. This simply means if you do not make the change in your life that you seek, that you hire me to Coach you with, then there is no fee to you.
What is bespoke? In its simplest definition it means ‘made to order’. Imagine a Taylor making a suit for a client, not a general suit to sell for a fixed price on a rack, but a specifically, made to measure suit. This particular suit will always cost more due to the extra effort and input required.
So it is exactly the same with Coaching.
Regarding the Guarantee – my belief is that if someone is hiring me personally, to help them make a change, then I will move heaven and Earth to bring that result in to fruition. It is only very rarely I am unable to deliver ( even Coaches are human! ). Hence, I am confident enough to offer this arrangement because it is me, in effect, who is taking all the risk. You pay for the delivery of the outcome as defined at the outset. You don’t pay for the time it takes me or the effort I will put in. The pressure is on me, not you. You are removed from the equation. I’m able to deliver change 95% of the time where people need it. Because of my Success rate, clients often get referred to me after, they have had no success elsewhere.
Where appropriate, I do charge by the hour simply because the required work is very minimal and does not fit in to my bespoke / guaranteed option and the daily service is just not necessary. The charge starts from £249* per hour** as a flat rate and this may work best to the clients advantage in certain circumstances. The hourly rate service is exempt from the guarantee.
For National Coaching the fee is £2,999* per day**.
For International Coaching the fees are different. Payment is in dollars and the daily rate is $4000 per day + expenses. Please contact me for further information for services outside the U.K.
If you wish to get in touch, please do so here. Know that all communication is in the Strictest of Confidence and Privacy.
To a BETTER QUALITY of Life …
*travel and any other expenses to be added. **all payments go directly to a Registered Charity. I do not receive any payment for any of my Life Coaching services.
