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.

  • The difference between influence and manipulation and the reasons for these behaviors

    Publié le 12 October 2021 par Philippe Vivier dans Reflections on Influence - Manipulation

    I am often astonished by the way these terms are used, whether in articles by bloggers or vloggers of varying quality, or in the literature and research in social psychology and clinical psychology, particularly the very trendy one on narcissism, whether it be the question of narcissistic personality or narcissistic perversion disorder.

    This misunderstanding in the use of these terms led me to wonder.

    Of course, there is an etymological difference between the two terms, but that is not the subject here.

    In my opinion, we must focus on the meaning of these words, since they are used as a qualifier for an action.

    For the Larousse dictionary, influence is the fact of an “Action, generally continuous, that something exerts on something or someone” and manipulation would be the “Action of directing the conduct of someone, of a group in the direction that one wishes and without them realizing it”.

    This would imply that the fundamental difference between influence and manipulation is that the victim be or become aware of it.

    Context would therefore also seem to play a role in being able to identify influence or manipulation through the examples offered: an example of political manipulation in one case, and television influencing youth in another.

    Concepts that are intermingled in the collection of expressions using the term influence, we find; “subjected to a manipulation of ideological, psychological order.” Moreover, the use of the term “ideological” also refers to politics,

  • Being comfortable with your Coach is not that important!

    Publié le 11 September 2021 par Philippe Vivier dans Academic and Career Guidance

    All coaches and therapists are subject to the vagaries of their clients' lives and to the fact that they sometimes drop out because of discomfort, whatever term is used. In the context of coaching, this is much less important, in my opinion, than the general discourse based on the principles of therapy, as taught to all apprentice coaches in training schools, and which consists in indicating that it is essential, which logically leads to the emergence of discourse suggesting that one should not take on coaching when one does not "feel" able to do so with regard to one's own shadow areas, etc. This implies that the coach would know his shadow areas that he would have explored in therapy beforehand, which is generally not the case. This can also be explained simply by the diversity of profiles that register for coaching training without any prior knowledge of psychology or therapy methods. It is a question of making this public conceptualize the commercial relationship particularity that unites a practitioner with his client, which is quite different from the one that a salesman at the wallmart might have with his client.
    It is thus a question here of discussing the principle that I myself have put forward from the beginning in the introductory texts present on my website, without very detailed explanation, aiming at explaining that it was important to have a good "feeling" with one's coach. I have decided for this article to focus on what is necessary without being

  • How to know if an influence is good or bad?

    Publié le 31 July 2021 par Philippe Vivier dans Reflections on Influence - Manipulation

    Influence could be good or bad, positive or negative? A notion that is more a matter of common conception than of scientific reality, even if social psychology has taken an interest in it.

    It is not necessary to question whether it is fair to consider that there can be negative influences when referring to trauma, alienation or indoctrination, to mention only some of its most telling forms. The whole point of this article is to see if we could, by argumentation, manage to define whether influence can be beneficial in a general way, according to the context, in all honesty and intellectual vigilance.

    More simply, can we talk about good influence? Does a good influence exist? If a good influence exists, to what extent is it identifiable and what makes it possible to define that it is universally and unmistakably good in all its effects?

    Can all these questions be answered a priori? Let’s try.

    The question of whether some influences are less harmful than others in their effects is not one, that is quite clear. Whether it is in a similar context or not.

    We can use as an example the case of a friend’s advice in a similar context of buying a car and the case of two subjects with different contexts.

    The context of buying a car, where you tell a friend, assuming that you would be likely to follow the advice given and thus be influenced:

    You have two children aged 12 and 14, your spouse’s car is a city car, your family’s outdoor activities are surfing and mountain biking, and the

  • 5 simple steps to protect yourself from influence

    Publié le 25 July 2021 par Philippe Vivier dans Reflections on Influence - Manipulation

    What is influence?

    A vast subject whose spider’s web that can represent it is terribly fine, often imperceptible and complex to correctly identify and map in order to define it, but also to explain it and try to thwart it.

    This article does not aim at detailing the influence in its smallest aspects and effects, that would be too long and tedious. It has two main functions:

    • The first one is to give you a list of what you can do to limit its effects,
    • The second one is to explain to you how to do it concretely by giving you some explanations and examples.

    So for those who are in a hurry or who need a structure before a presentation, here are the 5 key steps to help you protect yourself globally from influence. It is a general process that cannot necessarily correspond to all types of influences, but it seeks to combat beliefs, norms and the acquisition of new knowledge, among others.


    5 steps in 2 parts, adaptable according to the subject:

    I) Question the source’s expertise 

    1. Who is speaking? What is their training and background?
    2. What element makes it possible to determine if he knows what he is talking about?

    II) Questioning the discourse 

    1. Does he cites his sources or the origin of his statements or reasoning?
    2. You must deconstruct and analyze the speech and the level of justification and precision of the statements.
    3. You have to check the possible
