I have positive expectations for a coaching relationship that helps you to create the life YOU want to live. To partner together professionally, I want you to be familiar with the following guidelines.
Terms of Coaching:
I invite you to think of Coaching as a process. Many people create change for themselves in a short time. However, to refine and sustain the change takes several months. Although not binding, I would ask that you expect our Coaching relationship to last at least 3 months.
My Coaching fee are payable via PayPal through my website, www.lifecoachforme.com. All coaching fees are dure prior to the sessions, so if we agree to a monthly coaching plan, the month’s chaching fees must be paid prior to our first session. Initial intake session are billed separately. There is no commitment beyond month to month, but please give me a few weeks' notice if you think you will be ending our coaching together.
Please note that a "month" may not always correspond to a calendar month, but refers to one set of coaching, that usually takes about a month to complete.
I will call you at the specified time, unless we make other arrangements. If you wish to connect with me in between sessions with a challenge, a success or an inquiry, I will make every attempt to respond to your e-mail within 24 hours, with an email or short phone call at your discretion. I'm happy to provide this extra level of service at no additional charge.
If you need to reschedule our appointment, please give me 24 hours notice. If you have an emergency or illness, you can reschedule with less than 24 hours notice. If you do not show up for a scheduled call, for any reason, and provide no notice (latest notice can be five minutes past scheduled session start time), we will not make up that time. If I need to reschedule, I will give you at least 24 hours notice as well, barring an emergency or illness.
Email me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org, or text me at 347-674-1190 to reach me with ideas, problems, questions, etc, or to have a quick laser call.
If I ever say or do anything that upsets you or doesn't feel right, please bring it to my attention so that we can resolve it as soon as possible. My objective is to have a coaching relationship that is fully open, honest, real and trusting in our communication styles. We should both realize that communication via telephone or email entails extra challenges since we cannot see body language, facial expressions, etc. Therefore we give each other plenty of latitude, and promptly ask for clarification if there is a mis-connection.
My Responsibilities as Coach:
I agree to serve as your Coach - to partner with you to identify and achieve your personal and/or professional goals.
As your Coach, I cannot guarantee results. You will create powerful results by having the courage and determination to forward the action in your life.
During the time we spend together in our coaching sessions, I will devote my time, thoughts, and energy to you, exclusively. In between our sessions, I may not be instantly available, as I may be attending to others, or myself. I will however, always attempt to be available within 24 hours.
I am a Coach, not a psychotherapist or physician, and I am not trained in diagnosing psychological or medical conditions. If any issues come up for you that should be handled by a licensed therapist or physician, I insist that you must attend to your health by contacting the appropriate professional.
As your Coach, I will bring attentive listening, understanding, belief in you and commitment to your success. You can expect me to challenge you, offer fresh perspectives, make requests (including assigning homework), acknowledge your wins, and guarantee utmost confidentiality (to the fullest extent of the law, and so long as I don't fear for your or another's safety) in the powerful, sacred relationship.
