Your sessions are highly confidential and your privacy is respected. In our professional coaching practice, our staff adheres to the highest standards in the field of professional coaching.
Coaching Sessions are available for clients throughout the United States and around the world by telephone and Skype. Effective, efficient and convenient,
your calls can be made from
your preferred location. In terms of the efficacy of telephone work, current medical research is finding significant value from telephone coaching sessions.
In-Person sessions are available at the MIW office in Charlotte, North Carolina. Arrangements can also be made for sessions to take place at your office, home or an agreed upon convenient location. For out of town clients, special arrangements can be made for sessions to take place in your area.
For many clients, a combination of in-person and telephone sessions works well.
Clients determine the frequency of their coaching sessions. Ideally, the first few sessions take place weekly. Sessions take place weekly, bi-weekly, every three weeks or once a month.
Length of Sessions
Eight Session Packages
In the beginning, we recommend that clients participate in eight sessions. This allows them to establish a solid foundation to launch a successful process of change. Scientific research reveals that it takes a minimum of three months to establish successful new behavior patterns.
For those who prefer to participate one session at a time, individual sessions are available.
For those who would like to experience the coaching process once and to ask more questions, introductory sessions are available for a nominal fee.
Check, credit card and Paypal payments are accepted. For more information about fees and payment options or to make a payment, please click here.
