Increasing my rate

I have 7 paying clients who work regularly with me one-to-one. I want to increase my prices at the beginning of January. My reason is that I know I offer good value (even though initially I was worried about the price that I am charging – that it was too expensive!) and that other people in my niche are charging more.

I am also developing online courses that will not be ready until February but will be at a cheaper price. However, I still have the fear that I will lose these clients who I have developed very good relationships with. I have a fear that they will think I am greedy. I know it is just a thought but it is making me hold back and wait to raise my prices when the other cheaper courses are available. Now that I am writing it I can see my thought errors but I still feel afraid.
