PART TWO: COACHING
What is Coaching?
Coaches partner with people to create a safe, stimulating environment where they can identify obstacles and reach their highest potential. People hire coaches to help them achieve a variety of professional goals such as maximising success, developing emotional intelligence and managing career transitions. The coach’s job is to work with people – referred to here as the ‘client’ -- to enhance their skills, resources and creativity. Coaches are trained listeners and use powerful questions to bring out client-driven strategies and solutions.
Coaching Relationship & Boundaries
The client understands that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders nor is it a substitute for professional advice by legal, medical, financial, business, spiritual or other qualified professionals. Coaching is also not a substitute for any form of medically prescribed or specified services (including psychotherapy, counselling, psychology services, therapy or analysis).
The client understands that coaching is an ongoing, interactive, professional relationship designed to help the client achieve his/her desired results in their career. By signing this agreement, the client agrees that he or she is fully responsible for his or her physical, mental and emotional well-being, including his or her choices, decisions and actions. The client is aware that he or she can choose to discontinue coaching at any time. Accordingly, I (Matthew Davies), will be indemnified and held harmless from any claims, demands, causes of action or litigation including, but not limited to, all costs of reasonable lawyer’s fees, which may arise or be incurred by reason of the services performed.
Client Agrees To:• Turn off your mobile phone and other distractions during the session.• Take full responsibility for his/her choices and decisions during coaching.• Let the coach know if at any time the coaching is not working as desired and use his/her best efforts in working with the coach to resolve any issues that may arise.• Be committed to complete agreed upon ‘homework’ established during coaching sessions.• The payment and cancellation policy in this agreement.
Confidentiality: Coaching paid for by the coachee
Coaching is based on confidentiality. Confidentiality is essential to building the trust needed for an effective working relationship between the client and the coach. The coach recognises that anything the client shares with them is regarded as confidential, whether it is business or personal information, except as required by law. By signing this agreement, the coachee understands that coaches are not covered by “privilege” in a court of law. Unless the client agrees otherwise in writing, the coach agrees not to at any time, disclose any information the client shares with them during their sessions, unless it could jeopardize the safety of the client or others. Information on the coachee may be anonymously and hypothetically shared with others for training or consultation. The client will have sole discretion to share or not share feedback assessments, the content of coaching conversations and any other information from the coaching process.
Confidentiality: Coaching paid for by Business
If your company is paying for your coaching they will expect updates. The coach will ask for your permission prior to any update and will discuss what aspects will be shared with your company representative so trust is not threatened or any unwanted disclosure is not made.
Duration and Investment
Sessions are bought in bundles of three or five and no longer than 55 minutes each in duration. Sessions not taken within 12 weeks of purchase will expire and are non-refundable.
Unless otherwise arranged, the client understands that fees are payable in advance. Client understands that his or her paid session starts at the scheduled appointment time. Any dispute regarding services is limited to fees paid, cancellation of unpaid charges invoiced, and/or cancellation of additional contracted services, with the amount and terms to be agreed upon by the parties.
Additional fees may be charged in some situations:
• Fee-based assessments (such as a career and personal assessments). • Reasonable travel expenses if the coach travels more than 5 miles to visit the client.
Agreed coaching sessions must be paid for before sessions commence.
Commitment is key to coaching. We understand life happens and will take exceptional circumstances into consideration, however, this is a professional service and must be respected as such.
you can cancel and rearrange your session using the e-calendar if your session is 48 hours or more prior to the coaching session, you are able to do this once, per session. You cannot use this facility if the session is between 0 and 48 hours prior to the coaching session. Please email email@example.com if you need to cancel and rearrange. If the session is 24 to 48 hours from the cancellation notice time, a cancellation charge of 50% of the coaching fee will be charged on top of the new session booking.
If a cancellation notice is received by Power the Change Ltd less than 24 hours prior to the training date, the cancellation charge is 100% of the coaching session fee.
