Life Coach


Answers to some of the common questions about starting to work with Alison Burgess of Limitless for Life.

How do I know if life coaching is for me?

My experience shows that the relationship between you and your coach is key to the success we have. We have to build a trust connection, so first of all why not contact me for a free 15 minute consultation? We can get to know each other, discuss what you want to achieve and discover if Limitless for Life Coaching will make the difference you are searching for.

How much does it cost?

Face:Face sessions are £50, payable in advance and it is £45 for virtual coaching. If you book 4 or more sessions together I offer a 10% discount on either type of session.

How long are the sessions?

Sessions are booked for an hour but the most important thing is achieving the goal of our session. This means sometimes we may go on a little longer to achieve our goal, or we may finish slightly early.

Do I have to do any additional work in between sessions?

Working on yourself in between sessions will ensure that you are taking powerful steps towards your goal every week. To do this I will sometime set you simple activities to continue from one session to the next. It helps to bring a note book to the sessions to keep a record of your thoughts during the coaching session and also in between as sometimes that’s when the real break throughs happen!

Where does the coaching happen?

We have a range of options when it comes to your coaching sessions and I am happy to mix up the options depending on the session. I have a coaching space in my home office (Sutton Coldfield) and will also meet in coffee shops or for walks if that is preferable. In addition I do coaching over zoom if that is easier/better for you.

What times are you open?

My hours during the week are flexible between 9am and 7pm, I also work Saturday mornings.

How many sessions do I need to have?

This is a difficult question to answer. The number of sessions can vary depending on what you are looking to achieve. For example it is usually simpler to help someone who has a phobia of flying than it is to help another person reinvent their career. The average client has around 6 – 8 sessions with me. Whatever you need our free 15 minute consultation will help us to create a plan and guide of the likely number with clear time scales that work for you.

What is the difference between Life Coaching and Therapy?

Life Coaching is a non therapeutic intervention as I am not a counsellor or psychotherapist. That said with my NLP and Hynotherapy skills we can tackle a range of challenges that may otherwise require counselling, particularly anxiety and phobias. ​ Counselling and psychotherapy tend to focus on getting closure on your past, Limitless for Life coaching is future focussed. I want to ensure that you achieve your goals, even if I am not the right person to help you which is why we have our 15 minute free consultation to agree to work together or give me a chance to suggest a better path for you.
