Life Coaching

Life Coaching for every stage of the adult life.

Life coaching is an opportunity to focus on you and your dreams and aspirations ….. Life coaching can be truly life changing and can enable you to carve the space in your life for your goals and what is important to you.  Life coaching can be challenging and hard work, though also rewarding and fun.

Adults of all ages and all stages of professional and personal development can benefit from life coaching. 

Millennials/young adults are a unique and diverse cohort of adults and 20-somethings born between 1982-1996. On one end of the spectrum are the overachievers who expect a C-suite job offer straight after graduation. On the other end are the confused and multi-passionate procrastinators who wind up back home, in their childhood bedroom, with nothing to do. Wherever the young adult falls on the spectrum, the 20’s are a critical developmental phase for making a successful transition from dependent college kid to flourishing adult.

Something to ponder…

Is your current life status not exactly what you envisioned it would be like by this time in life? Are you feeling frustrated about some challenges you are facing and could use some guidance to help you get on track? Have others who love you expressed concern about the direction your life is headed?  Maybe you are doing pretty good in life yet know you were created for more? If you answered yes to any of those questions,  Life Coaching can help you get to the Next Level.

In case you are wondering… What is the difference between a Life Coach and a Therapist?

The fundamentals of life coaching are what distinguishes it from therapy. Life coaches do not diagnose the people they work with, while therapists determine illnesses and pathologies so their patients can be clinically treated. Therapists analyze their client’s past as a tool for understanding present behaviors, whereas life coaches simply identify and describe current problematic behaviors so the client can work to modify them. In other words, therapists focus on “why” certain behavioral patterns occur, and coaches work on “how” to work toward a goal.  Despite occasional areas of overlap, the work and processes of therapists and life coaches are distinct. Life Coaching can also compliment traditional therapy giving you how to support in between sessions. 

Is Life Coaching covered by health insurance? 

No, life coaching is not a medical treatment and is not covered by insurance. Do not let money stand in the way of you experiencing your purpose in life. Visions will tailor coaching packages that fit your budget. We can combine 1 on 1, group, email, and video sessions to make it work.  DO NOT put this off another minute. You and your future are worth the investment of time and money you commit to being coached.

Coaching is a collaborative process that is present and future-oriented. It is action-oriented, solution-focused, and encourages change. It involves accountability and commitment to growth through increased competence, commitment, and confidence. As the client, you set the agenda for these sessions and your success will largely depend upon your willingness to define goals and try new approaches. You can expect me, as your life coach, to be hopeful, encouraging, honest, ask thought-provoking questions, offering challenging techniques to help you keep moving forward. Life coaching is not currently a regulated industry in the state of Virginia. Kimberly Best Johnson has certification from Integrative Nutrition as a Health Coach that incorporates all aspects of wellness, mind, body, Spirit, relationships, and career. It will be solely the responsibility of the client to determine the effectiveness of the services rendered and the competency of the coach. Life coaching is not psychotherapy or counseling. Life coaching does not address or diagnose mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. Your life coaching sessions are not a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment. Psychotherapy is a healthcare service and its primary focus is to identify, diagnose, and treat nervous and mental disorders.* Confidentiality: While we are not bound by the laws of HIPPA, confidentiality is an important element of the coaching process. Your identity and ongoing work will be kept strictly confidential. I will only release information about our work with your written permission, or if I am required by court order. The following exceptions apply 1. There is a broad range of events that are reportable under child protection statutes. Physical or sexual abuse of a child will be reported to Child Protective Services. When the victim of child abuse is over age 18, I am not legally mandated to report it unless I believe that there are minors still living with the abuser who may be in danger of being abused. Elder abuse is also required to be reported to the appropriate authorities. 2. If you are at imminent risk to yourself or someone else or make threats of imminent violence against another person, I will take appropriate action. 3. Visions staff may have access to your confidential data. Every staff member is held to the same strict confidentiality practices. Occasionally we may need to consult with other professionals in their areas of expertise to provide the best treatment for you. Information about you may be shared in this context without using your name. 4. If we see each other accidentally outside of the coaching office, we will not acknowledge you first nor should you feel obligated to acknowledge us. Your right to privacy and confidentiality is of the utmost importance, and we do not wish to jeopardize your privacy. However, if you acknowledge us first, we will be more than happy to speak briefly with you, but feel it appropriate not to engage in any lengthy discussions in public or outside of the coaching office.* No Third-Party/Insurance Payment Policy: Ultimately financially responsible for any balance. Visions does not bill to any third-party payers nor do we provide any information other than receipts of payment made by you to you should you decide to seek reimbursement for our services. * Fees and Payment/Cancellation Policy: Payment is due at the time services are rendered. Our team members’ fees per hour of coaching services range from $180.00 to $200.00 Because we operate “By Appointment Only”, cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice will result in a fee equal to the total amount of the missed session debited from your credit card. After the first no-shows/late cancellations, the client will pre-pay before services are rendered. Clients who have pre-paid agree to have the entire hourly fee deducted from their pre-payment in cases of no-shows and late cancellations. Other services include emergency phone calls over 15 minutes, generating reports, consulting with other agencies and professionals at your request, and the time spent performing any other services you may request. These services will be charged as they occur. PLEASE NOTE: By scheduling a session at Visions, you have agreed to have your credit card on file for the coaching sessions. Any credit card disputes will result in Visions producing a copy of this signed agreement to the company notifying us of the “chargeback” in order to recover our fees. Any additional “chargeback” fees will also be assessed to you the client. Acknowledgment and Release of Liability: By signing indicate you have read and understood this disclosure and consent statement, I acknowledge that I understand the above information. I agree to hold harmless Visions and my life coach from all liabilities and claims which may arise as a result of my participation in life coaching.*
