You don't have to go it aloneI've helped hundreds of clients achieve their social goals. I can help you, too.
As a social coaching client, you will:
- Uncover the specific roadblocks that hold you back from social success
- Master the bedrock social principles that you need to connect with others.
- Discover the essential tools that can help anybody feel confident and overcome anxiety
My coaching strategy has three main parts.
First, I work with you to determine what success looks like. What are your goals? What do you hope to accomplish from coaching?
Next, I identify the roadblocks keeping you from reaching that success. Do you lack a specific skill? Do you struggle with anxiety? Are you caught up in self-defeating thoughts?
Finally, once we've identified the source of your social success, then we work together to overcome that roadblock. If you are lacking a specific social skill, I'll coach you in it. If fear is the culprit, we'll do exercises to build your confidence. If your self-defeating thoughts are forcing you to self-sabotage, we'll develop some strategies for thinking positive.
How Social Skills Coaching Works
Social skills coaching is a one-month commitment. Here's how it works.
We start by scheduling a 60-minute video call at the beginning of the month, where I learn about your social goals and the roadblocks holding you back. We'll agree on some challenging but achievable goals for the next 30 days, and do a quick crash course on the specific skills you'll need to achieve those goals.
After the call, I'll write up and send you a game plan for the next week. I'll lay out the exact steps you should take to make progress throughout the week, and how they tie in to your overall goals for the month.
You'll apply that game plan for a week, then email me back an update on your social progress. You'll have the opportunity to share the things that went well, and the struggles that you encountered. I'll respond, providing you with strategies for overcoming the obstacles that you encountered in the previous week, and another game plan for the week ahead.
My emails will take the guesswork out of your social growth. Instead of feeling stuck, you'll know how to make sustained improvement, week after week.
The Long Term
Many clients find that one month of coaching is all they need. Other clients prefer to work with me for multiple months in a row, or take a few months off to work on their own and then come back when they need some extra help.
How Much Does Social Skills Coaching Cost?
Social skills coaching costs $800 per month. This includes one 60-minute video call, one "game plan" email following the video call, and then four weekly emails.
If you'd like to add additional video coaching (for instance, a "check-in" coaching session midway through the month, or an "emergency" coaching session prior to a big social event), you can add those at a rate of $300 per one-hour session.
Is Coaching Right For You?
Coaching isn't right for everyone. You should consider these questions before signing up.
Are you ready to do the work?
Coaching only works if you actually use the advice I offer. If you're not ready to challenge yourself and make changes in your life, you won't benefit from my coaching.
If you're not sure, you might want to start with my book Level Up Your Social Life. Level Up is full of specific steps that you can take to apply the concepts from the book to your everyday life.
After you practice consistently applying the lessons of Level Up Your Social Life, you should be ready to benefit from coaching.
Do you have the support you need?
I'm happy to work with people that struggle with mental health issues, but I don't want anyone to come to me for coaching instead of getting the help they really need from a therapist.
So please seek out a therapist first, and then start coaching with me. Social skills coaching can be a great supplement to therapy, but it is not a substitute.
Are you trying to manipulate others?
My goal is to help you make meaningful, lasting connections with others. The best way to do that is to treat others with respect and compassion, which means that sleazy tricks based in social manipulation have no place in my social coaching.
If you are looking to manipulate your way to social success, I encourage you to choose a better path. You'll never find the connection you crave until you learn to relate to others without manipulation.
