Client Intake for One on One Coaching

Coaching Agreement

  1. As a client I agree to be ready to receive the coaching call or be in attendance at the scheduled time. 

  2. I understand that all fees for the session are to be paid in full, in advance. 

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

  4. I understand that “coaching” is a professional client-centered, relationship I have with my coach that is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals. 

  5. 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. 

  6. 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 counselling, 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. 

  7. 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. 

  8. I understand that information will be held as confidential unless I state otherwise, in writing, except as required by law. 

  9. I understand that certain topics may be anonymously and hypothetically shared with other coaching professionals for training OR consultation purposes. 

  10. 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. 

  11. I understand that throughout the coaching process I alone am responsible for my own destiny. Any decisions that I make, and the consequences thereof are my own. Under no circumstances can I hold Lori Brant or 2260982 Ontario Inc, operating as Lori Brant’s Coaching Services, or any employees, family members or consigns or heirs liable for the outcome of any actions that I take or for any failure to reach my goals.
