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 three months.
I am a board certified coach trained by the Institute for Life Coach Training (https://www.lifecoachtraining.com//) which is accredited by the Center for Credentialing and Education (https://www.cce-global.org) and the International Coaching Federation (https://coachingfederation.org). As a member of the International Coaching Federation, I adhere to the Code of Ethics: https://coachfederation.org/app/uploads/2020/01/ICF-Code-of-Ethics_final_Nov12.pdf
Additionally, I am an ordained minister endorsed for chaplaincy by American Baptist Churches, USA, and a Board-Certified Chaplain (Association of Professional Chaplains https://www.professionalchaplains.org ) I have a PhD in psychology and previously worked as a therapist with families with adjudicated child abuse.
The initial 30-minute session is complimentary
My coaching fee is payable on this website
My fee is $100 per one-hour session.
Discounts are available if you choose to contract for bundles of sessions in advance.
Please give me a few weeks’ notice if you’re planning to discontinue coaching.
I normally meet via Zoom, although we can also use FaceTime or Google Meet, or meet via telephone if you prefer. I’ll send you a link before our sessions.
Meetings are generally held once a week for an hour each time.
Barring a critical emergency, please give me at least a 24-hour notice of any changes to our scheduling. No shows are charged the full rate.
If I ever say or do anything that upsets you or doesn't feel right (and I most likely will), 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 always involves challenges, so we give each other plenty of latitude, and promptly ask for clarification if there is a mis-connection.
I understand that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, medical, financial, business, or other qualified professionals. I will seek independent professional guidance for legal, medical, financial, business, psychological, 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. I understand that coaching is a personal growth profession, not psychotherapy or counseling. Everything you share is strictly confidential, except with your permission or as required by law.
By booking a session, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the above.
