Frequently asked questions

Coaching FAQ?

Coaching is a transformative and sacred partnership between a trained coach and a client or group ready for coaching and who feels connected with the coach. Coaching can help people in all areas, from personal development to career advancement. Establishing a solid foundation of trust and rapport is the coach’s first priority. The coach-client relationship is the main source of vision, perspective, and motivation gained from session to session. The coach will leverage these and their background in the latest research-backed coaching psychology experience to help you get out of your own way, reach your goals, and find unique answers to your most important life questions. They’ll also partner with clients in designing their lives and environments to support achieving and sustaining positive change.  

We currently accept clients across the USA and want to expand globally. While the company is based in Houston, TX, all coaching sessions are typically hosted virtually, and our workshops and training can be hosted virtually and in person, depending on travel arrangements (if necessary).

Our coaching services are designed to help individuals, teams, and organizations achieve their goals. We work with you to develop a custom coaching plan that fits your needs. We can help you with goal setting, time management, stress management, and more.

Our coaches are accredited by nationally recognized organizations like the International Coaching Federation, the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching, and other organizations of an equivalent nature. Coaches need a minimum of 60 hours of accredited coach training, 100 documented client hours, and pass a proctored knowledge assessment to be considered. Our coaches average 120+ training hours and over 500 client hours.

  1. Unlike therapists and psychologists, coaches do not enter the realm of directly healing past traumas with clients that might affect their functioning in day-to-day life. Coaches may work with the past as it relates to the client’s present and future, yet the vast majority of session time is spent helping clients discover their own pathways to realizing their full personal and professional potential. Most coaching clients are healthy, successful people who might be experiencing a plateau or making significant changes in their lives. With the client’s commitment to the process and a co-creative client/coach relationship, clients can realize perspectives and the potential they never knew were possible.
  2. Unlike consultants, coaches do not provide advice outside their designated field(s) of expertise and only provide it with the client’s permission. Consulting is typically information-based. For example, you might hire a consultant to answer specific questions for your business process. Coaching psychology provides a different approach to cultivating the client’s ability to find answers to their own questions as they move forward.

Humessence coaches are chosen first on their ability and genuine interest in creating an authentic connection. In practice, they’re experienced with the latest research-backed positive psychology, motivational interviewing, and mindset training methodology. They’re also certified by some of the most elite coaching organizations in the world. 

Coaching and therapy can be very effective simultaneously, especially when the client grants permission for the coach and counselor to work together collaboratively. We have clients today that are doing both and experiencing success. The coach’s focus is on your present and future environments. While we work with the past as it relates to the present and future conditions, your counselor is the licensed expert in helping you work through past traumas that could impede your coaching journey. Your coach will help you determine if you’re ready for a coaching engagement.

The organizations we work with are fully aligned with investing in structured programs that increase employee engagement and psychological safety. At the individual level, we focus our training, education, and coaching programs on empowering employees with the tools to create balance in their lives, communicate their needs, and increase their energy levels through internal motivators. Our Human Based (HUM-B-LE) Leadership Development Program helps leadership teams create an environment that fully supports and rewards behaviors that promote engagement and psychological safety. The approach to our coaching and training programs is backed by our proprietary human development and change frameworks.

Our coaching programs are value-based. We guarantee the value of our clients’ experience will outweigh the costs. One-on-one coaching packages range from about $400 – $1,400 per month depending on the coach’s experience, frequency and duration of sessions, and the area of service. Some corporate and executive coaching programs can run from $1,000 – $10,000 per month, depending on the level of on-site engagement and programs for their teams and organizations. You can browse our top-ranked bios and talk to someone today to find out what package is good for you.

The best time to hire a coach is when things are going well! As humans, we’ll wait until things fall apart to look for answers. While no time is a bad time to start looking at your self-awareness, self-knowledge, and personal growth, when you enter the work from a balanced state, there’s potential to create something beautiful. We recommend being proactive about your well-being and growth to meet life’s inevitable challenges with a momentum that keeps you moving toward the life you want.

Coaching & Development is Personal

A note from our founder, John Marshall

Hi there! I want to personally thank you for your interest in investing in yourself or your people. There’s something in you that knows things can be different with your experience of life and work. Years ago, I was right where you’re at, and deciding to do something about it was the best decision I ever made. Investing in personal and professional development experiences has connected me with incredible people and created a life I love. The most significant leap for me came from transformative one-on-one coaching engagements. Humessence was born to give you access to the core experiences and knowledge that have made the biggest difference in my life and the lives of my clients. So, I invite you to schedule a free consultation with one of our world-class coaches to experience it for yourself. What are you waiting for? If you wait until you’re ready, you’ll never be ready. 🙂
