Individual Thought Facilitation

Private coaching

Want to work through a block, challenge or set goals together? Find it helpful to get an outside perspective to remind you of what really matters?

We can work together on all kinds of things!  There are many models that might work best for you – we find the best system for you – usually video conferencing and/or a private class online space work the best – but flexibility is one of my hallmarks.

I work with a max of 4 students at a time so there is always time for you and your needs. Most students work with me for 3-10 hours then check in once or twice a year for some support, or to get questions answered. Each of you truly is unique though – we’ll work in the way you need!

Common topics covered include:



Organization and Time Management


Peaking Performance


Interviewing & Job Searches


Goal Setting and Planning


Getting Support

…and much more.

30 or 60-minute sessions are available. Regular bookings are eligible for a lower rate.

Emergency single sessions can always be arranged. 

Contact me to see if thought facilitation is something you want to add to your life!

“Working with Andrea has provided me with the skills, perspective, and accountability I needed to work through several training and personal goals. Andrea approaches her work with a wonderful mix of kindness, compassion, and humour that makes her a fantastic teacher. The learnings from her courses seem to have a way of spilling over into other areas in my life where I never even knew I needed them.” Sarah Quakenbush

How Private Coaching Works

The first step in private coaching is for you to email me and let me know you’re interested! In that email, it’s helpful if you can give me a little bit of background—tell me what you hope to accomplish and work on, and what you see as your biggest challenge.

After you reach out to me, the two of us will confirm that private coaching is the right option for you, you’ll pay for the first hour of coaching and we’ll figure out a mutually convenient time to chat.

I can set up a place to catch all of our notes, plus any helpful worksheets and articles. During that initial call we devise the right custom plan for you, based on your needs, your unique situation, and your personal goals. I’ll track my time, and let you know when time is running out (no unexpected charges here!).
