What is your email address?

kathryn@kathrynsaxer.com (or you can reach me through my Contact form)

Are you a certified professional coach?

Yes, I hold a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) credential with the International Coaching Federation, the governing body of the coaching profession. I also have the Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) credential through The Coaches Training Institute (CTI) one of the leading coaching schools accredited through the ICF.

How much do you charge?

My fee is $350 per 45-minute session at my office . Alternatively, I offer a four-session package for $1200.

 

Do you offer one-off sessions or do I need to commit to a long coaching engagement?

One-off sessions can be super helpful to a client — I do not require any kind of time commitment. A single meeting is totally fine. And if I’m not helpful, I won’t charge you!

 

How do we get started?

Send me a note through my Contact form or an email at kathryn@kathrynsaxer.com. I’ll say hello, and we can decide whether we want to schedule a quick initial call (20 minutes).

The purpose of that initial call is for you to interview me and for me to get a sense of whether I’ll be a good resource for you. Depending on your circumstances, we may decide to skip this call and just get to the coaching. You then schedule a session on my online calendar.

 

Do you offer a free sample session?

If I’m helpful during that first coaching session, then I will bill you for my time for that first session; if we decide that I’m not the right resource, then there is no charge for that initial session.

And you can decide whether the conversation was helpful whenever you want — I’m not going to awkwardly ask for a decision during our coaching session!

How often do we meet?

Frequency is completely up to you. We can meet weekly (more than that might be a bit much!), bimonthly, intermittently, just one time — whatever works for you is fine with me.

Do you require a time commitment?

No, we work together as long as the coaching is useful and helpful to you. You can be done absolutely whenever you want.

Do we meet by phone or in person?

Either, although my preference is to meet in person if possible. If you are located in Seattle, we meet at my office. (Rates for meetings off site are negotiable, depending on location.)

I do coach clients all over the country by phone.

What’s a typical coaching topic?

General themes tend to fall into a couple of different categories: What do I want to be when I grow up? How can I grow in my current organization? How can I find more meaningful work? From there, the coaching invariably explores other aspects of your life that profoundly contribute to your happiness: from your health to your relationships to having more fun.

Will you blog about me?

Only if I have your explicit permission. If I’m thinking about writing about something you’ve inspired me with, I will ask your permission. If granted, I will write it and send it to you. With your okay, I will post it. You will never be blindsided by something on my blog.
