I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my well-being during coaching, including my choices and decisions. I am aware that I can choose to discontinue coaching at any time. I recognize that coaching is not psychotherapy, medical advice or psychiatric care and that professional referrals will be given if needed.
I understand that coaching is a relationship I have with my coach that is designed to facilitate the creation and development of personal, professional and business goals and carry out a strategy/plan/actions for achieving those goals.
I understand that coaching is not comprehensive and may involve exploration into all areas of my life, including work, finances, health, spiritual relationships, education and recreation. I acknowledge that deciding how to handle these issues and implement my choices is exclusively my responsibility.
I understand that coaching does not treat mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. I understand that life coaching is not a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment, and I will not use it in place of any form of therapy.
I promise that if I am currently in therapy or otherwise under the care of a mental health professional, that I have consulted with this person regarding the advisability of working with a coach and that this person is aware of my decision to proceed with the coaching relationship.
I understand that the information will be held as confidential unless I state otherwise in writing, except as required by law.
I understand that certain topics may be anonymously shared with other coaching professionals for training or consultation purposes.
I understand that coaching is not to be used in lieu of professional advice. I will seek professional guidance for legal, medical, financial, business, spiritual, or other matters.
I understand that all decisions in these areas are exclusively mine, and I acknowledge that my decision and my actions regarding them are my responsibility.
I understand that there are no refunds on 1:1 coaching.
