Description of Coaching
Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional and business goals and to develop and carry out a recommended strategy for achieving those goals and/or outcomes.
Coach agrees to maintain the ethics and standards of behaviour established by the International Coach Federation “(ICF)” (Coachfederation.org/ethics). It is recommended that the Client review the ICF Code of Ethics and the applicable standards of behaviour.
Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing his/her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and his/her coaching calls and interactions with the Coach. As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the Coach. Client understands coaching is not therapy and does not substitute for therapy if needed, and does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.
Client further acknowledges that he/she may terminate or discontinue the coaching relationship at any time.
Client acknowledges that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of his or her life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. The Client agrees that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching principles into those areas and implementing choices is exclusively the Client’s responsibility.
Client acknowledges that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association and that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, or other professional advice by legal, medical or other qualified professionals and that it is the Client’s exclusive responsibility to seek such independent professional guidance as needed.
If Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, it is recommended that the Client promptly inform the mental health care provider of the nature and extent of the coaching relationship agreed upon by the Client and the Coach.
The Client understands that there is an Ethical duty for the Coach to report to authorities if the Client intents to or knows of harm to themselves or another or other incidences of a considered serious nature.
The Client understands that in order to enhance the coaching relationship, the Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.
This applies to all existing and future 1:1 sessions, group programmes and online course programmes.
The parties agree to engage in an agreed session or programme via online meetings and for an agreed duration and content / course programme.
Fees are in Great British Pounds (GBP) and payable in GBP through an online payment service as chosen by the Coach. The cost of the programme will be clearly stated in the marketing materials for the programme and subject to change by the Coach at any time.
Schedule & Procedure
For 1:1 coaching, the time of the coaching meetings and/or location will be determined by Coach and Client based on a mutually agreed upon time.
For all other coaching or programmes, the session times will be determined by the Coach.
Rescheduling (applicable to and for 1:1 sessions only)
If for any reason the Client is unable to do a session, there will be a link on the emailed calendar invite (via Calendly) for you to find another date and time for the meeting.
Cancellation Policy (applicable to and for 1:1 sessions only)
A 24-hour notice is required for all session cancellations and changes from the Client. If notice is within 24-hours, you may be charged in full for the session. The Coach will attempt in good faith to reschedule the missed meeting, however if there is an occurrence of more than one late notice or missed meetings, the Client may be charged for the session.
If the Coach requests to reschedule the session due to any serious unforeseen circumstances, the Coach agrees to accommodate as best as possible an alternative that best suits the Client.
(Applicable to and for 1:1 sessions only)
Refunds requested for single coaching sessions which have not taken place will be made upon request, providing there is no conflict with the timeframe indicated in the Cancellation Policy (24 hours required notice).
Refunds requested for single coaching sessions which have not taken place but booked as part of a discounted package will be made upon request to refund any sessions not taken place taking into account the full price of the sessions before any discount, providing there is no conflict with the timeframe indicated in the Cancellation Policy (24 hours required notice). This is to ensure that packages and package prices are reserved for customers completing the whole package and there are no instances of booking packages for single discounted sessions to ensure fair pricing.
If the Client is part of an ongoing programme where the content / course programme has been executed or has accessed any of the course details and or (bit not limited to) information, classes or written content specifically for the agreed programme, the Client will not be entitled to any refund for any sessions already taken place.
Refunds will be granted at the discretion of the Coach. If for any reason the Client is not wanting to take part in any remaining sessions where the Client has booked a pack and received a lower cost per session as a result of doing so, they may be refunded for the unused sessions at the standard single session rate or the rate of the pack below the initial purchase.

The party so affected by force majeure shall use all reasonable endeavours to resume performance of this Agreement as soon as it can.

If a dispute arises out of this Agreement that cannot be resolved by mutual consent, the Client and Coach agree to attempt to mediate in good faith for up to (certain amount of time such as 30 days) after notice given. If the dispute is not so resolved, and in the event of legal action, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover attorney’s fees and court costs from the other party. The Client agrees to contact the coach on [email protected] as the first step to resolve any disputes.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If the Court finds that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.
The failure of either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of that party’s right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of this Agreement.
This agreement is governed by and interpreted in accordance with the law of England and Wales.
By signing up and paying for a session, course or programme with the Coach, the Client Agrees to these terms.
