Getting a Coaching Office, or Not (part 2)

Coaching Office


For a starting coach, I recommend doing thorough research. Common inexpensive places for a coach to start is a shared office. There are plenty of psychotherapists, psychologists, medical professionals whom don’t work full time and would love to share an office space.

Another a recommendation I would like to do is consider teaming up with other professional, in order for both of you to piggy back off each others clients. Coaching or NLP based coaching wonderfully compliments with psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, or any kind of body work. Students of mine have found their coaching homes in the buildings of therapists, chiropractors, general practitioners, vocational guidance council, etc.

As  a new coach, you may want to convince someone with a more established business to donate or rent the space to you cheaply. After all, you can drive in customers, and offer a complimentary service, you will make the established business look good!


Now if any of this isn’t your cup of tea. You are left with two choices: coach anywhere except your own office, coaching from your home.

  1. This is great!  I decided to open an office when I had the clients to support it so I conducted coaching on the phone or via Skype.  I was fortunate in that I was approached to join a team of practitioners, which included an acupuncturist, herbalist, and wellness coach.  The benefits for me, included not only the space but the ability to brainstorm with other like-minded practitioners weekly.  The other thing is that now their were 4 people promoting my business rather than just me.  It has been and still is a win-win situation.
