Do I have to pay all at once or do you offer payment plans?
I prefer that you pay upfront, however payment plans are available on request and these will be outlined in your coaching agreement once you have met with Tess and decided which package to choose.
Is it just coaching or do I receive other material too?
Tess provides a range of workbooks, resources, meditations, books and other material that you can work on over the course of your coaching program. Each program has specific resources, however Tess will develop a program specific to your needs. If you want more, or less, materials then this can be arranged.
What are the program options?
Please head on over to the 1:1 coaching page to see the range of coaching programs.
What if it ‘doesn’t work’?
The client enters into the coaching agreement with the full understanding that they are responsible for creating their own results. Thinking that something ‘won’t work’ is a belief that when working with Tess you can look to shift. You are capable of making it work and that is what coaching does – it makes you responsible for your own results. Tess will do absolutely everything she can to offer guidance, value, and strategies for the client to move forward and achieve their goals. It is up to you, as the client, to take action and put in the work and create change.
What is the process involved? What do I need to do?
If you are interested in coaching then contact Tess using the contact form to set up a free connection call via zoom or in person. During this call you will connect with Tess and have a chance to tell her why you approached her for coaching, what some of your current challenges are and where you want to be in the next six months and Tess will provide a plan for how to achieve this.
If you decide that you want to continue with coaching you will sign a coaching agreement which provides details of coaching, how to pay and what you will expect to receive and pay a 10% deposit and arrange the date of your first session.
Tess (or Tess’ Virtual Assistant) will then send you a copy of the signed agreement, an invoice with payment instructions for your next payment and an outline of the areas you will focus on in your coaching package.
After that, you can expect a welcome package in the mail and you are all set! Time to make giant leaps ☺
Can I get my money back?
No. Coaching results are not guaranteed. The client enters into the coaching agreement with the full understanding that they are responsible for creating their own results. Tess will do absolutely everything she can to offer guidance, value, and strategies for the client to move forward and achieve their goals. It is up to you, as the client, to take action and put in the work and create change.
Do you do a one off coaching session?
Generally, no. People get the most out of coaching when it is a long term commitment to themselves. Committing to yourself for 3 to 9 months shows that you are committed to making long term change. Very rarely I do a one off private visualise your day workshop session. If you are interested in this contact me here.
Do you offer workshops?
At present I do not run workshops as my timetable is full to the brim. Instead of workshops I have an online Facebook group called The Big Leap – for high achieving conscious female entrepreneurs looking to take massive leaps in their business. You can join this group here. I also will be running retreats in 2019 for women who are looking to spend 5 days in Bali to make huge breakthroughs. For more information and to get on the list head over here.
Do you offer courses?
Yes, there are self-study courses you can work through at your own pace. Head on over to this page here to see what is available.
How does coaching work?
Coaching is different from counselling or going to see a psychologist as it is very forward thinking and action focused. On a very basic level, we work together to determine your goals and a plan for achieving this. You will notice that over time your awareness around certain things grows as you are expanding your conscious awareness around behaviour, your thinking and your emotions so that you can make long-lasting transformations in your life and business.
What are your credentials?
Tess is a certified Life Coach, NLP and Meta Dynamics™ practitioner and holds a BA in Psychology and Criminology, Honours (1st class) and Masters in Criminology and is currently completing a PhD examining the experiences of primary carer fathers imprisoned in Victoria.
Do you have a Facebook Group?
Yes, it’s called The Big Leap – for high achieving conscious female entrepreneurs (coaches, consultants, creatives – you’re all welcome). The group is for women who a) are starting out in business and are in the initial stages of creation (so this feels like a giant crazy step to begin with) b) are already in business and have reached your upper limit/comfort zone and want to know how to navigate that next phase and step into your powerdom!
It is a place to share insights, ask questions, provide feedback to one another, leave comments and generally support each other to run amazing creative businesses. I do regular Facebook Lives about intention setting, manifesting, creativity, goal setting, fear and much more and I would love, love, love for you to come over and join me there. Click here to join.
Can I extend my coaching package?
Yes. I have several clients who I have been coaching for a number of years. When you sign up again to a package you get a 5% discount off the overall price of the package.
Do you offer referral incentives?
Yes. If you refer a potential client to me who then contacts me you receive a free coaching session and a copy of the book ‘Women Awakening: An anthology of women’s writing” edited by Diane De Bella and featuring a story by me! You can refer people by either passing on my number [+61 4 4919 4089] or email [firstname.lastname@example.org] or by passing their number onto me and I will contact them.
