What we expect of you

As a client, I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my physical, mental, and emotional well-being, including my choices and decisions. I am aware that I can choose to discontinue coaching at any time.

I understand that coaching involves a working relationship with my coaching team in a thought-provoking and creative process that to help me maximize my potential.

I understand that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve all areas of my life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education, and recreation. I acknowledge that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching into those areas, and implement my choices is exclusively my responsibility.

I understand that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. I understand that 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 diagnosis, treatment, or 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 the mental health care provider 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 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. My identifiable information will never be disclosed.

I understand that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, medical, financial, business, spiritual or other qualified professionals. I will seek independent 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 decisions and my actions regarding them are my sole responsibility.
