Life Coaching helps our clients to develop their critical and constructive thinking skills so that they can overcome the obstacles they are facing and move ahead confidently and efficiently.

The LBE® agency believes that each and every one of us possesses the necessary potential to achieve that which we really desire. All we really need is to find the right help at the right time, and to seize this opportunity and have the determination to succeed.

We invite our Life Coaching clients to adopt a new outlook on life, which takes into consideration various aspects that may have previously been ignored, and which could help to explain both their past successes and failures.

We work to establish a positive and healthy working relationship that encourages an open and honest dialogue between our clients and their coaches.

Through active and attentive listening, we lead our clients to better understand the issues that they are dealing with and to see them in very straightforward terms. Being able to comprehend the situation through a new angle is a necessary step for our clients as it allows them to envision suitable solutions with a practical and optimistic state of mind.

Working together with our clients, we define their objectives and what actions need to be taken through a rigorous action plan that acts both as the guiding mechanism for our services as well as a monitoring tool. With each session, the coach and the client take stock of the progress made.

A closing session allows for the completion of a global assessment on the part played by the coaching, whether the objectives were attained and any further steps that should be taken in the future.

1. Who is your Life Coaching service intended for ?

Our Life Coaching service is offered to anyone of legal age who is looking for a greater sense of well-being or who feels an intense need for change in their life.

It is crucial that these individuals truly believe in the necessity of hiring a personal coach to guide them through overcoming temporary difficulties, to lead them towards lasting life changes, or simply to help them to feel better.

They also need to be ready to invest their time into this quest for change or personal growth.

2. When should I seek the LBE® agency’s Life Coaching service ?

Nowadays, our societies are becoming increasingly demanding towards us as individuals, in spite of the impressive technological progress that has been made and the changes in the way we work and our role as consumers.

As a result, many people feel like they have lost their bearings, especially those who are facing a wide range of personal problems and never have the opportunity to recuperate, or even the time to think about their real dreams and aspirations. For example: people dealing with stepfamilies, single-parent families, a crumbling family life, an invasive professional life, a decreased standard of living, unhealthy lifestyles, living in insecurity, isolation, information overload, difficult relationships, professional and/or personal stagnation, etc.

We take into consideration that life is no longer a straight path drawn out in advance, like it was for some even just a few decades ago. We must now deal with numerous unexpected twists along the way that bring along with them feelings of insecurity, destabilisation, and, sometimes, exhaustion.

This new reality requires each of us to have a different attitude, a new outlook on ourselves and others, and a new way of living in which we are able to adapt and evolve, while still remaining masters of our own destiny.

To manage and overcome these sorts of difficult situations, we suggest that you take advantage of our active and caring Life Coaching service.

We will be at your side during your quest to find meaning in life and to increase your self-awareness. We will help you to discover your own unwavering determination to live in total harmony with who you really are, deep down inside. This will finally allow you to feel fulfilled both at a personal and a professional level.

3. How exactly do you provide your Life Coaching service ?

To ensure the success of our Life Coaching service, we work within the framework of a coaching contract that is painstakingly established between the different players. This includes a clearly-defined objective, indicators to assess whether this objective has been reached, the number of sessions and the necessary meeting arrangements which have been organised with the client, an end-of-coaching assessment, and a post-coaching follow-up, if necessary.

Before committing to a contract, we offer our clients a free exploratory interview.

This free interview allows our future coaching clients to take the time necessary to openly and honestly discuss matters with their coach. The coach is there to actively listen and to gain a complete understanding of the issues at hand.

This free interview also lets our clients determine if there is a good connection between them and the coach. This is crucial for our coaching services to be successful.

Finally, we will clearly explain to our client our Code of Ethics (which will also be annexed to our service contract).

At the conclusion of this exploratory interview, the LBE® agency establishes a coaching proposal (diagnosis of the situation, coaching goals, schedule) and a detailed estimate for our services.

The coaching proposal forms the basis for preparing our coaching service contract.

It will include a description of the meeting arrangements that the client has opted for during the exploratory interview:

  • Choice between in-person meetings, video-conferencing or telephone meetings, or a combination thereof
  • Length of the sessions: 30 minutes, 1 hour, 1 and ½ hours or 2 hours
  • Number of sessions
  • The date and time of each session
  • The location of the session, if it is in-person
  • How the client should reach the coach, if it is a video-conference or telephone meeting

To make using our services as convenient as possible, our clients have the option of combining these different communication methods in order to accommodate their schedules, time constraints, transportation requirements and other organisational matters.

Each coaching session follows an agenda that is defined by mutual agreement between the client and the coach. This may be adapted according to the actual progress made.

The coaching proposal will also include the following important elements:

  • A precise description of the desired objective (what, when, who, how)
  • A schedule outlining all the coaching sessions, including the target date for reaching the final objective and the date of the final assessment
  • Precise methods for evaluating whether the final objective and related sub-objectives have been reached

Obviously, for the peace of mind and comfort of our clients, we allow them time to reflect on our offer before they are asked to approve the coaching proposal and our estimate.

Once the service contract has been signed, our coaching work can begin.

The client can, at any time, choose to temporarily suspend or halt our coaching services for good. In this case, the remaining coaching sessions, which have yet to occur, will be entirely reimbursed.

4. What different meeting arrangements are available for your Life Coaching services ?

An individual contracting our Life Coaching service can take advantage of our very flexible meeting arrangements, which helps to minimise any time or transportation issues, thanks to the range of choices we offer:

  • In-Person Coaching (at a location prearranged by both parties)
  • Coaching via Videoconference
  • Coaching via Telephone

Further, in order to ensure that our coaching services completely adapt to the organisational constraints of our clients, it is also possible to combine these different communication methods so that they correspond perfectly with your schedule and make seeking our services as convenient as possible.

The details of the arrangements for each of the coaching sessions coordinated are described within the “Coaching Proposal” and “Coaching Contract” documents (see Question 3).

5. What are your fees ?

The fees for our Life Coaching service depend on the terms set by the client:

  • The logistical choice between in-person meetings, video-conferencing or telephone meetings, or a combination thereof; and,
  • The length of the sessions: 30 minutes, 1 hour, 1 and ½ hours or 2 hours.

This flexibility, both in terms of fees and organisation, is offered so that the coaching conditions are as convenient for you as possible, so that you can focus on the most important thing: reaching your goals.

We invite you to contact us to arrange a meeting consisting of a free exploratory interview, after which time we will be in a position to deliver you two documents: our coaching proposal as well as a customised, detailed estimate of our fees.

6. Do you charge for the initial interview ?

No, the first “exploratory” interview is offered free of charge.

7. What are the terms of payment for your Life Coaching service ?

Payment for our services is done in three steps:

  • One-third of the payment at the time of the signing the service contract
  • One-third of the payment at the half-way point through the contract
  • The remaining one-third of the payment after the final assessment has been completed
