One 60 minute session initial session will usually suffice to evaluate our mutual fit so you can make your decision about whether to commit to a body of work together. I am happy to have a free phone call of up to 15 minutes with you to decide whether an initial session is right for you. Call me at (707) Four Eight Nine -3345, or email me at basinh (at) mac.com
Such a commitment makes clear your understanding that changing habits of acting or thinking is hard work. Upgrading one’s entrenched patterns requires repeated practice. As a result, I book clients for a month at a time. This allows you to schedule sessions as they work in our mutual schedule, for up to four 60 minute sessions. The cost of one month (regardless of how many sessions you schedule) is $400.
To support your commitment to your practice, I also offer a financial incentive to engage for two months (up to 8 sessions) at a cost of $700.
If you want a less intensive schedule of work, or perhaps seek an initial session to get a sense of our working together, single sessions can be booked at $125 for a 60 minute hour, or $175 for 90 minutes.
Sessions, Communication and Billing
You and I will agree upon the venue for each of our coaching sessions. They may be in person, by phone, or video-conference such as Skype.
We will both show up prepared for the session: focused and ready to engage. This is not the time to catch up on missed meals or be distracted by other business. You will show up ready to report on the status of your homework. I will take written notes for my reference during sessions.
I will keep confidential anything that you share with me in our session. Unlike family therapists, teachers or police officers, I am not professionally obligated to report suspected crimes to authorities. The truth of your entire life experience is safe with me. I request that you keep the content of any of my personal disclosures in confidence as well. We both need to feel safe.
Our sessions will start on time, whether you are in attendance or not, and end at the designated time (unless we mutually renegotiate the session ending time.)
You will be billed for sessions that we schedule, even if you miss them or start late. With at least 48 hours advance notice, we can reschedule your session. If you attempt to reschedule a session with less than 48 hours notice, it will be considered a missed session. Please remember that not completing your homework assignment is not a reason to reschedule. If assignments are not complete, we nonetheless work together during your scheduled session to overcome obstacles and establish next steps.
I welcome communication between our sessions. My first choices are by email: <basinh (at) mac (dot) com> or by text at: (707) Four Eight Nine-3345. I expect you to reach out if you need support or feedback. I invite you to crow about any successes that empower you. That would feel affirming for both of us! If you need a person-to-person call from me you can call the text number and leave a voicemail. I can usually get back to you within a day (unless I am visiting a location without cell service). If you call me and leave a message, please let me know whether you would like a call back or are just sharing your progress. I do not bill for check-in calls with ongoing clients that complete in 10 minutes or less. Calls that run longer than 10 minutes will be billed at standard hourly rates in 10 minute increments.
If you’ve purchased a package and find yourself unable to use the balance of your sessions for a good reason, you may put the remaining sessions on hold for up to three months. Session credits will not be carried out further than that three month hiatus, however. Coaching fees are non-refundable should you decide to quit your process before completing your pre-paid package.
Any session that we mutually agree to extend will be prorated at the standard hourly rate in 10 minute time blocks.
Monthly packages must be paid in advance. I accept Venmo, Paypal, and personal check.
