How long does a life coach spend with a client?

If I (after qualifying as a life coach) find a client (assume that we have a weekly session), how long does the course take to be completed?

Hi Eberhard

As you know the New Insights Coaching System comprises 13 sessions. We recommend coaching fortnightly (gives sufficient time for the client to properly reflect on and integrate the session content) and therefore the programme would take you around six months to complete.

Sometimes clients will need more than one session to cover one subject and you may therefore go on for longer than six months.

You can coach weekly if you believe your client can handle it and it is in his/her interests but it's not recommended and even then I would suggest the occasional two week break in the routine where appropriate.
