Should you send a recap email to your client after the session?

We've been having a great discussion over in the Health Coaching Essentials group about whether or not we should send recap emails to clients after sessions.

This has come up a lot with new health coaches who spend time after coaching sessions typing up all the notes, summarizing action steps and sending resources.

I get it. I used to do this too. I'd spend upwards of an hour after each session preparing the recap email.

Over time, as I got more clients, I realized this was unsustainable. It was taking way too much time and I was burned out.

I received some really good feedback from my mentor about this years ago and developed a different strategy. It's given me a lot of time back and also much more empowering to my clients.
