I have been conducting complimentary coaching as I had offered to do in April. Here is a question I received and I thought the answer would be of interest to you.
Q. If I sign up for coaching, do I need to commit for a certain number of sessions or can I do it one session at a time?
A. Coaching is done one session at a time. You commit only to the sessions you ask for. You pay for the sessions you attend. You schedule sessions to meet your needs and you can stop at any point.
Perhaps you are mixing tele-classes with coaching. The tele-classes are 15 weeks in length and you definitely make a commitment to attend the entire semester of tele-classes. The semester has a fixed curriculum which is largely influenced by the students in attendance and on the manuscripts submitted at each tele-class. People sign up for all fifteen sessions.
Coaching does not have this long-term commitment. It is a one-on-one experience wherein your coach focuses totally on you and your writing. Progress can be quick and pervasive. The benefit you will receive from coaching is certainly greatly increased when you attend a number of sessions. Breakthroughs occur when you stay with the conversation.
