The Widow Coach™
I have positive expectations for a recovery/coaching relationship that helps you learn to manage your grief, deal with the challenges, and transform to create the life YOU want to live. Widowed coaching is fundamentally different from other types of coaching because of the impact widowhood has on all areas of your life. To partner together in this demanding time in your life, I want you to commit to the following guidelines:
Terms of Coaching:
I invite you to think of this process as a path to transformation. Many people create change for themselves in a short time. However, to refine and sustain the change takes several months, especially when coping with the challenges that widowhood brings. Although not binding, I would ask that you expect our coaching relationship to last at least 3 months.
The fee is $150 for an individual session, or as listed in the packages above. You cay pay by cash, check or credit card. There is no commitment beyond week to week; however, I do recommend that you give the process adequate time to work. If we enter into a Grief Recovery Method Process that time is a minimum of 8 weeks, unless you are in an intensive session. For Grief Recovery Method Classes, attendance is a critical part of the process and no refunds will be made after the class closes.
Our meetings will be either in-person or via Zoom (online meeting). If you wish to connect with me in between sessions with a challenge, a success or an inquiry, I will make every attempt to respond to your text, call or e-mail within 24 hours, with an email, What’s App communication, text or short phone call at your discretion. I'm happy to provide this extra level of service at no additional charge.
If you need to reschedule our appointment, please give me twenty-four (24) hours notice, or there will be a charge for the session. If you have an emergency for illness, you can reschedule with less than twenty-four (24) hours notice. If I need to reschedule, I will give you at least twenty-four (24) hours notice as well, barring an emergency or illness.
Contact Between Calls:
Email me at time at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at 847-204-9613 to reach me with ideas, problems, questions etc., or to have a quick call to get re-focused.
As a fellow widow, I understand how emotionally stressful grief can be. At the same time, as your guide through this process, I will need to bring things to your attention to help you through it. If I ever say or do anything that upsets you or doesn't feel right, please bring it to my attention so that we can resolve it as soon as possible.
My objective is to have a coaching relationship that is fully open, honest, real and trusting in our communication styles, recognizing you are in one of the biggest challenges of your life. We should both realize that communication via telephone, text, or email entails extra challenges. When we communicate in that way, we cannot see body language, facial expressions, etc. that give us extra information over and above the written word. Therefore, we should we give each other plenty of latitude, and promptly ask for clarification if there is confusion in any way. In our sessions, respect is the rule.
By checking the box, I agree to these Guidelines and Expectations, as well as the Terms and Conditions.
