INSTRUCTIONS: Please review carefully. Before the beginning of each i-coaching session, you will be required to agree to Flower of Life Coach’s Terms and Conditions by clicking on the “I Agree” tab. An email will be sent to you for your records.
This agreement is entered into by: ____________________(client name) and ________________ (coach name), and pertains to Life Coaching for Personal or Professional Development which shall occur via telephone, via chat, or SKYPE, as negotiated between Client and Coach.
Definition of Coaching: “Professional Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action.
Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. ICF member coaches recognize that results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach’s efforts and application of the coaching process.”

The Client understands and agrees to each of the following provisions:

- C) I further understand and agree that as a specialized form of consulting, Coaching is not the same as professional or licensed therapy; and that I am always free to reject any advice, suggestions or requests made by the coach at any time. My coach is authorized and encouraged to be direct and unconditionally supportive with me.

AS A CLIENT, I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT I AM FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MY WELL BEING DURING MY COACHING APPOINTMENTS, INCLUDING MY CHOICES AND DECISIONS.

FLOWER OF LIFE COACH
Your fee is $25.00 per session unless otherwise stated, and is paid at the time appointment is set. Payment options include debit/credit cards via PayPal.
Each session is scheduled at your convenience and will last 60 minutes. You will receive a telephone or SKYPE call at the appointed time scheduled. For your live chat i-coaching session, you are asked to be available to chat on your private “My Page” via website (http://floweroflifecoach.com). Please allow yourself a quiet space during your sessions to get the most out of your coaching experience, and be available at least 5 minutes before each session is to begin.
As your coach, I have reserved your time for you. If the need arises, please give me 24 hours notice to reschedule. Without proper notice, scheduled time missed will be considered a regular session and you will be charged for that session. I ask that you try and make our time together a priority.
You may email between our appointments if you need assistance, have a problem, or can’t wait to share a success with me. I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. This is an extra and I do not bill for this time, but I do ask that you use it respectfully. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
If I ever say or do anything that upsets you or doesn’t feel right please bring it to my attention. I promise to do what is necessary to keep you a satisfied client. Honesty and trust are critical for our relationship to grow. I want this to be an open and safe place for you to come with confidence.
Confidentiality is critical to our relationship–our coaching sessions are strictly confidential. Any subject discussed and/or items shared, including such things as personal information, future plans, proprietary information, goals, job and company information, will remain confidential.
TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP
We have entered into a coaching relationship and it is not, nor will there be any type of therapy or psychological counseling. If these are needed, then it is your responsibility to seek these services from the relevant professional. If there is any question about this relationship, please bring it to my attention immediately.
My business is grown through referrals. I am very grateful for any referrals you send my way. For any referral you send my way who becomes a client of mine, you will receive one free (60 minute) session.
I improve my offering through client feedback, positive and negative. Included in this Welcome Pack is a form for a testimonial. At anytime and if you feel inspired to do so, I would appreciate a testimonial for use in marketing.
