COACHING AGREEMENT

Below is our coaching agreement that must be agreed to and accepted before we begin a coaching relationship with our clients.

This coaching agreement constitutes an understanding whereby the Coach agrees to provide Coaching Services for the Client. 


Description of Coaching: Coaching is 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 realize and maximize their innate potential. Our coaching is designed to help others navigate the internal journey of Awakening and integrate new understandings brought about through awakening into their external life.

Our coaching is also focused on facilitating the process of inner work and conscious co-creation with the universe. It is designed to empower clients to create and embody a vision for their life and to develop the internal tools, systems, and mindset to actualize that vision. Awakening is a holistic process that leads to internal growth and expansion in every area of your life that is directly proportionate to your commitment to the process. Our awakening coaching is intended to help our client’s begin to live more consciously and intentionally, integrating their awakened state into any aspect of life including: personal, professional, emotional, spiritual, relationships, or all of the above.

1. Coach-Client Relationship

1.1 Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing their own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and their coaching sessions 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.

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.

1.4 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.
