What is Coaching?
Many successful people have recognized that working harder doesn’t necessarily lead to the success and happiness that
they desire. They recognize that they have to work smarter and get support to achieve the life balance and satisfaction they
desire. Hiring a trained professional coach who offers support, encouragement, perspective, strategies, and accountability
has often made the difference.
In coaching you will be respectfully challenged as you determine what it is you really want and take the actions to achieve
it. Our time together is all about you: your life, your business and/or career. I ask that you make your time with me a
priority, show up on time, be prepared to work, have fun, and be ready to explore your life in a new and more meaningful
way. I provide the coaching and you do the work. Therefore, you will be taking the responsibility for your choices and
results. They are your accomplishments. You are the only expert in your life.
I hold confidentiality to the highest degree with my clients as designated in my signing of the ICF’s Ethics and Standards
Code. I want you to know that our meetings are completely private and confidential, except where prohibited by law or
where there is potential serious harm to self or others.
I do my best to be flexible in my scheduling to meet your needs. If you need to reschedule, please give me a minimum of
24-hour notice. If notice is not given, a charge will be made for time reserved.
Utilization of Coaching Sessions
Coaching packages are intended to be used within a specific period of time. This is for your benefit and mine. By purchasing a package, you receive a discounted rate per hour with the understanding that you'll adhere to the time limits described. If for any reason, the time limit no longer works for you, we can modify your agreement to reflect the rates applicable for hourly health& wellness coaching. Request for extensions to the time frame represented in your package will be considered to accommodate vacations, illness, etc.
Coaching Time and Support
I love supporting my clients both in our sessions and in between sessions. You are welcome to communicate with me via
email at firstname.lastname@example.org with wins or concerns. I read all my email and will respond to the best of my ability.
Should my email time reach more than an hour a week, I will discuss with you a fair charge for services.
Coaching is most effect when we keep our lines of communication open and free flowing. If we start working in challenging
areas, we may touch on some personal and sensitive topics in your coaching. As your coach, I will always be honest and
professional in sharing my perspective. However, if I ever say or do anything that upsets you or that doesn't feel right,
please bring it up, I promise to do what is necessary to make it right.
Sometimes my long-term clients become very comfortable working with me and after a while, our coaching could become a
bit routine. If you ever feel our coaching has become rote or stale, I will expect you to let me know what you feel needs to
happen to “spice up” the coaching. You will get the most benefit from your coaching if you take ownership of what you
need and thoroughly communicate it to me.
I do not accept liability for the consequences of your decisions. I work on the basis that you are fully responsible for your
own life, career and/or business decisions. I will work with you to identify solutions to your challenges, and if asked I may
share ideas based on my training, background and professional experience, however any and all decisions about a course of
