No. Any coaching, personal training services, etc are unrelated to cannabis. However, I am hoping to provide a "judgement free" zone for cannabis users in terms of coaching.
Of course not. Some of my greatest breakthroughs have been with people who have zero interest in cannabis use.
First, coaching isn't about you "listening" to me; it's more about me listening to you. Think of direct advice as kind of a last resort.
Secondly, you can read more about me on the "Geoff's Story" page, but my experience comes from attending the most elusive, exclusive, difficult school known to man- The School of Change. In five years, I transformed myself from the most dysfunctional human being you can imagine into someone that almost had no choice but to start coaching I was getting asked for help so often.
Change is what so many of us are seeking, but so few truly achieve. It is truly a battle, a war, an ongoing struggle, and in that arena, I'm like a fucking navy SEAL with multiple tours and decorations. If that's not what you're looking for, there's no shortage of coaches/therapists out there who've spent years studying that war from behind a desk.
In case you're reeeeealy hung up on education, I should note despite not having a degree, I do have around 3 years worth of post secondary credits, mostly in psychology and philosophy. I have basic coaching certification, and I'm also a certified personal trainer the American Council on Exercise (ACE). And I probably read more than you :)
I suppose “expensive” is a matter of opinion, but despite 3 figure hourly rates, I can assure you most coaches are not rolling in dough.
Providing someone with dedicated, focused, one to coaching is time consuming and it’s unlikely one could coach for 40 hours a week without the quality of work seriously declining.
Juggling the aspirations, problems, and goals of 40 or even 20 people at a time while still doing work on marketing, social media, etc is a stretch to say the least.
So with all that considered, as well as taxes, business expenses and other costs, even coaches charging upwards of $150 an hour can end up earning a relatively average yearly wage.
And again, “expensive” is relative; I estimate I spent around $30,000 over 5 years on various things trying to get my life in order. Had I found the right person to help me, spending $1000-$2000 on coaching would have been an absolute bargain, considering the potential payoff.
This isn’t necessarily a hard rule, but at the moment, it’s simply the most efficient means of me being able to work with the greatest amount of people.
I’d love to be able to meet one on one with everyone, but my time is limited, and committing to face to face meetings that require me to physically be somewhere, or skype meetings that require me to be near wifi, is just something I couldn’t realistically keep up with.
Having said that, if only talking on the phone is a big issue for you, we may be able to work something out. For those living or vacationing in greater Vancouver, again, we may be able to work something out in terms of in person sessions.
