Pricing of Academic services, coaching and accompaniment

We are all looking for the best price, but comparing only the prices of the coaching offered by the coaches does not make much sense. It is important to compare the type of service that is offered or the type of result expected. There are big differences in the types of coaching offered.

It would never occur to anyone to compare the price of an BMW serie 5 with that of a Toyota Corolla on the grounds that they are both sedans. The BMW costs at least 30% more for various reasons, some of which are justified. In the end, it's the same thing for an coaching offer.

In order for my pricing to be understandable, it is important to know the details of the service I offer and what differentiates it from the others, so I invite you at least to consult the "COACHINGS" page, but you will also find other articles that should interest you and in particular "How to choose a school and professional student coach" with a complete checklist and "How to choose a guidance service" to avoid disappointment. Of course, take the time to check out my profile as well.


I charge a single session fee of 90 €.


(this price is likely to evolve of + or - 25% during the year according to the periods, that is to say from 90 to 120 euros maximum, but it does not change during the accompaniment)

90% of my clients reach their goal in 3 to 6 sessions.

My rates do not include any additional fees or charges.

Count on average 500 euros (5 sessions of one hour) for a career coaching that usually lasts 2 to 3 months. It is not necessary to count 5 sessions for a coaching, some students may only need 1 or 2 sessions, to help them make a definitive choice of orientation or field of study, for example. This is why the payment is made per session and not per package.

I charge the same rate for the other types of support I offer and do not have a special "Grand Oral Du Bac" package or service. The services I have been offering for over 15 years in terms of professional projects and public speaking will fully satisfy your present and future needs.

J'ai également conçu un programme unique pour choisir un métier, en 5 jours ou 35 heures à 9,99 €.

Éviter l'influence en orientation a toujours été pour moi d'une importance capitale et d'autant plus depuis quelques années ou chaque individu a une théorie ou un conseil à vous donner et beaucoup de moyens de diffusion.
17 ans d'expérience dans un programme d'orientation, unique, car il ne vous influence pas, avec du développement personnel, ou chaque personnalité peut s'exprimer en toute autonomie à la recherche du sens et à un tarif accessible à tous. Moins encadré et personnalisé mais aussi efficace pour trouver son métier lorsque l'on est volontaire.

Coaching is a short, productive, efficient and focused action that aims at autonomy without being influenced. In any case, this is the way I have been practicing it for more than 15 years.

Types of payment accepted: cash, check, bank transfer, Paypal and CESU* (*under certain conditions)

When we agree on a session, this time is reserved for you and I generally cannot assign it to someone else at the last minute. In case of withdrawal, any session not cancelled 48 hours in advance will be charged.

Coaching sessions last 1 hour but we can schedule 1.5 hour sessions depending on your needs and the issue, progress or your personal requirements, at the hourly rate mentioned above.

If you wish or if it proves necessary, a follow-up, regular or exceptional, by email, during the inter sessions is possible. The billing is calculated on the basis of the time spent (time spent thinking about a possible document, formulating a particular questioning, etc...) and I commit myself to answer you within 48 hours.

The sessions take place at my office, whose coordinates are listed on the site, or by video conference via Skype or any other software for online coaching and remote support.

The coaching can be spread out over a few months, or over a few weeks and depends on the potential urgency of the situation, as is often the case in orientation coaching.

Logically, it is always preferable to start in advance to give the student time to digest and mature our work and reflection so that it can be spread over at least 3 months.

  • Fact Checking, Critical Thinking and Guidance

    Publié le 27 March 2022 par Philippe Vivier dans Reflections on Influence - Manipulation

    Fact checking, a very fashionable term, is one of the tools at the disposal of critical thinking. It allows, in particular, to quickly verify the hidden face of a situation or the veracity of a statement. It has become indispensable today, whatever the subject.

    This article is largely composed of an excerpt from the first part of my book where, as if we were not sufficiently influenced by our biases, I deconstruct a certain number of beliefs that influence our choices: “Overcome Influence And Thrive - The Career Change Program for Employees”. This will allow you to see how fact checking, even more than elsewhere, is essential in career change.

    I will just deal with this subject in the form of concrete and real examples. As always, the amalgam or the simple bullshit is a formidable tool of misinformation and the time needed to correct them plays in favor of their authors who can say almost anything as long as they are not part of a scientific approach and their work will never be reread by a committee of experts in the same field, and that most people will not verify. This is also an effect of authority bias.

    Authority bias is a tendency to overestimate the value of a person’s opinion because of their status, eloquence, type of argument, tone or image in relation to us. Many external elements can influence it, such as the tendency to repeat certain key phrases two or three times in a speech or presentation. It is a manipulative mechanism that contributes to producing an

  • How to make a more rational choice?

    Publié le 07 March 2022 par Philippe Vivier dans Academic and Career Guidance

    As we discussed in the article “Can we control our choices?” that I invite you to read first, a choice is an undefined mixture of emotion and reasoning that is totally dependent on the context and the type of choice to be made. To simplify, a choice is mainly the result of emotions and processes that we do not control, combined with more or less thinking conscious and unconscious.

    We make many unconscious choices all day long. You also make some choices that involve conscious reasoning, whether it is a choice you have to make in the moment, or a choice you have to make later.

    In order to rationalize a choice, it is necessary to implement a voluntary reflection. It is essential to have as precise an idea as possible of what one really wants and to be as objective and rigorous as possible in the nature and elaboration of the arguments but also in the evaluation of the consequences, and finally to accept them.

    You are invariably looking for the most acceptable compromise.

    Making a choice is, above all, choosing a consequence.

    We can dissociate certain contexts:

    • To make a choice alone, which engages only us, including in its consequences like choosing a strawberry or vanilla scoop in its ice cream cone.
    • Making a choice alone, but one that has consequences for others, such as a career choice.
    • Making a choice together, where it is a search for compromise so that the consequences suit both parties in roughly equal and acceptable proportions such as an amicable divorce or the choice
  • Can we control our choices?

    Publié le 07 March 2022 par Philippe Vivier dans Reflections on Influence - Manipulation

    I chose to write this article because I have long been aware that many clients make temporary or definitive choices that they sometimes find difficult to explain and we often find ourselves having to deconstruct elements that were based on perceptions, beliefs, etc., revealing a lack of reflection. As we will see, there are many explanations for this phenomenon. Education is the first of them, thinking, analyzing and reflecting is learned, and on the other hand, the brain naturally tends to make instinctive choices.

    I’ll stop you right here, our relationship to life is not only commercial, fortunately, I won’t deal with this issue from a marketing or only influence point of view, because the act of buying is a specific process that is not at all the main point here and because a choice involves emotions, therefore they are inevitably influenced. I have decided to approach the question of choice in its globality and without compartmentalizing the approach in the manner of economics, psychology or philosophy, which would be far too reductive for such a complex phenomenon for which having indisputable proofs seems impossible. It is for me totally absurd, whatever the approach, to want to normalize, categorize or predict a choice according to predefined parameters or a priori consensual scale of value, each individual having his own history, education, values which affect his emotions and evaluation criteria. This should not necessarily be taken as irrationality, since a choice is

  • Indicators that a gifted child is not supported by the school

    Publié le 28 December 2021 par Philippe Vivier dans Teaching, Education and Schooling

    Here is a non-exhaustive list of some indicators that I have quickly put together for parents that will allow them to identify that the school is not taking care of their gifted children as it should and is not adapting its methods and supervision. This is despite the fact that the national education system claims to do everything possible to support them according to their needs and the recommendations of specialists.

    Of course, nothing dispenses with having a good knowledge of the specificities of your gifted children, particular or shared. I therefore encourage you to get information and training on the subject, as this is probably the best way to accompany your child serenely and intelligently into his adult life.

    It is not a question of defining how many indicators you need to take into account to be sure of the situation and determine if your child's needs are known, taken into account and provided for.

    It's about using common sense, because not everything is necessary and just because you identify a few things in this list doesn't mean that your child is not being properly supported.

    As you will see from some of the indicators, it is necessary to know your child's specificities, but above all his real level of knowledge, especially in the different subjects, which invariably involves personal work, on weekends and during the vacations, via revision books and exercise books allowing him to progress at his own pace and to set himself challenges. This will allow you to
