a)plan coaching

At a)plan, our mission is to help you be the best version of yourself. We bring life coaches to the San Francisco Bay Area with both our virtual coaching, and our many SF-based coaches.

How does a)plan deliver life coaching to the Bay Area?

Our life coaches are located all over the US, and many are based in the SF Bay Area, including our very own Jill Johnson, Santalynda Marrero, and Mahama Nyankamawu. At the beginning of an engagement, a)plan users have the opportunity to select their own coach from our roster of nearly 50 life coaches. Users are welcome to choose a coach in the same timezone or general area, like San Francisco. However, for most a)plan users, the location of their coach has little impact on the quality of the experience.

Is virtual coaching better than in-person coaching?

Virtual coaching affords a)plan users a number of benefits that they wouldn’t get through in-person coaching. With virtual coaching, users enjoy extra convenience, as they can save time and money avoiding the commute to their coaching sessions. Just as importantly, virtual coaching provides for a deeper coaching experience, because it creates easier access to your coach. With unlimited texting access and a coaching app to support the experience, a)plan users can get in contact with their coaches whenever they need.

How do clients meet with coaches?

Clients meet with our coaches through the a)plan app, which offers text, audio, and video communication options. For those living in the area, our Bay Area-based life coaches are also able to meet in-person. Our coaches are flexible! No matter how you meet, we encourage the use of our app to get the best experience.

How does a)plan define life coaching?

Not all coaching is the same. People talk about life coaching, career coaching, executive coaching, DEI coaching, and more. At a)plan, we believe these many different genres of coaching should not be separated. What many believe they are looking for in “life coaching,” they typically discover through a)plan’s “whole-person coaching” approach.

What sets a)plan apart from other life coaching companies?

Our deep and diverse roster of coaches all utilize a consistent, time-tested method. Drawing inspiration and advice from the best coaches in the world, we created a simple, accessible, and highly effective method, supported by our coaching app. Our method is proven to unlock the best in individuals, no matter their situation or location (which is how we are able to seamlessly bring coaching to all corners of the Bay Area).

How expensive is coaching with a)plan?

For $500/month, a)plan users experience our powerful launch exercises, weekly coaching sessions, plus unlimited texting and app usage. Our pricing undercuts much of the competition, especially when factoring in the quality, flexibility, and experience of our coaching staff. For comparison, according to Harvard Business Review, executive coaches charge an average of $500 per hour (not per month), with the range extending as high as $3,500 per hour!

Are Bay Area schools eligible for a)plan for Universities?

Yes! At a)plan, we strongly believe in the promise of Coaching for Everyone, and we are proud to deliver on that promise. While today’s students and young professionals are among the most likely to benefit from professional coaching, many don’t know where to look. That’s why we created a)plan for Universities. Through this program, students and recent grads of participating universities enjoy discounted coaching services from a)plan. SF Bay Area schools are among the first to be invited to this program, with more locations coming soon.
