This contract covers all coaching sessions between the two parties. Sessions will be approximately 60 minutes in duration. Sessions should be paid for beforehand and cancellations should be made with a minimum of 24 hours notice or the session will be considered completed with no refund.
This agreement will begin upon acceptance and will continue until the session paid for are completed or one year, whichever comes first.
The services to be provided by the coach to the client are tele-coaching, as designed jointly with the client. Coaching, which is not advice, therapy or counseling, may address specific personal projects, business successes, or general conditions in the client’s life or profession.
The coach promises the client that all information provided to the coach will be kept strictly confidential. The only exception is information that conflicts with the ICF code of ethics to which the coach adheres.
Throughout the working relationship, the coach will engage in direct and personal conversations. The client can count on the coach to be honest and straightforward in asking questions and making requests. The client understands that the power of the coaching relationship can be granted only by the client, and the client agrees to do just that: have the coaching relationship be powerful. If the client believes the coaching is not working as desired, the client will communicate that belief and take action to return the power to the coaching relationship.
I understand that I am working with my coach for professional coaching at the agreed fee. Professional coaching is distinctly different from counseling, psychotherapy or psychoanalysis and does not deal with the diagnosis or treatment of emotional problems. Since professional coaching does not constitute medical consultation or treatment, health insurance does not apply. These fees may be considered deductible business expenses.
