    How much can I expect to earn? What career opportunities are available to me?

    In a 2023 report, the estimated 99,100 Active coach practitioners generated over $4.564 billion (USD) in annual revenues in 2022. As you might expect the greatest concentration of Coaches, and highest paid Coaches, are in high-income areas like North America, Western Europe and Oceania (Australia and New Zealand). The average fee charged for a one-hour coaching session was $244 USD. The average number of Clients at any given time, 12. The average number of hours spent coaching Clients each week, 12.

    Certified Human Potential Coaches are highly employable!

    To give you a sense of the kind of companies you could work with upon graduation, we have briefly highlighted three of the most popular amongst our Certified Human Potential Coaches:

    https://www.lyrahealth.com/ — their mission is to transform behavioral health care through technology with a human touch — to get more patients the care they need when they need it. Our coaches who are full-time with Lyra Health informed us they get paid $75k per year, plus benefits.
    https://www.betterup.com/ — their mission is to unlock greater potential, purpose and passion. Our Coaches inform us they get paid on average $70 per session as a contractor.
    https://www.modernhealth.com/ — their mission is to de-stigmatize mental health care, break down barriers to access, and give everyone the tools they need to build resilience, proactively engage in their mental health, and get the clinical support they need when they need it.

    Coaches who work with these organizations have told us the training they received from us is above and beyond the knowledge, professionalism and necessary skills that applicant Coaches are expected to have.

    Whilst the hourly rate for these companies is of course less than you would typically charge a private Client, they do provide you with a significant volume of Clients. This provides important coaching experience and coaching hours! The other nice thing is the flexibility. With some companies you can work as many or as few hours as you want.

    It is an exciting time to become a Coach!
