How will I know you are the right coach for me?
During initial conversations we will work together to identify fit.  Before you say "yes" to coaching, you will have a complimentary strategy session and we will talk about what the coaching experience will be like. Until then, click on the BIO page to learn more.

How do I get started in the coaching process?
If you are interested in beginning the coaching process, please email Rayanne at rayannecoy@mac.com and/or schedule a complimentary session to further explore the details of the coaching relationship.

What can you expect from me as your coach?  I will:

1. Be a partner in bringing out the best, the deepest, and the truest in you
2. Provide safety, encouragement and support; an environment in which you can relax and explore
3. Respect the confidentiality of the agreements we make
4. Expand your view of what is possible and promote discovery of new insights
5. Give you input, straight feedback and operate as a sounding board
6. Listen carefully to what you say and ask questions that increase awareness
7. Be an on-going resource for you to accomplish your intentions

What if I sign up for this and decide it is not right for me? Do you have a money back guarantee?
Yes, I call it my "participate and get your money back" guarantee. If within the first month of our relationship you show up in person or on the phone and participate fully in the coaching process, you can simply let me know this is not working for you and I will completely refund your money.

To honor the coaching agreement and the coaching process, if you sign up and do not show up for your coaching sessions, do not do the follow up work, etc, then we will not refund your money.

Accessing the Private Client Area

What is the “Register Now” link and when would I use it?

If you are interested in becoming a client or beginning the coaching process, you can create your own account to access the private client area.  When you “register” I will be notified that your account has been created and will need to activate your account. This could take up to 24 hours.

How do I access your private client area and how do I log in?

Click on the Login Link (above, at the top center of this website page).  Then enter the username and password that has been assigned to you.  Don’t have login information yet?  Contact me so we can get an account created for you.

I have a password that I use for most of my on-line accounts.  Can I change the password you assigned to me?

Yes.  You will need to log in initially using the password I assigned to you.  Once you log in you can change your password at any time under your Client Profile Page.

What if I forget or loose my password and login information?

If you simply forgot your password, you can still go to the Login Link.  Enter your username and click on the “I Forgot My Password Button”.  You will receive an email shortly with your password included.

If you misplaced both your username and your password, contact me via email and I will forward you your information.

I’m trying to log in, but it will not accept my username or password, what do I do?

Remember that the login information is case sensitive, so enter it exactly like it was given to you,  If you are unsure what that is, you can contact me via email and I’ll forward that to you.

Forms, Documents and Resources Available

What makes up a “Welcome Packet” and what do I do with this?

By completing the information in the welcome packet, you are providing helpful information so your coach knows how to best support you, guide you and work together with you.  A welcome packet consists of some basic forms, documents and resources that will help to get us started in the coaching process.  It includes a “Client Profile” form, a “Goals” form and also a “Discovery” form.  You will also find our coaching agreement located in this packet.  It is customary for you to complete these items prior to our initial coaching session together.
