Session Preparation:

You must perform all actions you agree to undertake forming part of the coaching sessions and any action in preparation for future sessions determined by me. You must advise me of the outcome or progress of all actions, or as soon as you become aware that these actions will not or cannot be performed. This advice is critical to my session preparation and to support your progress between sessions. If you refuse to carry out such actions then this coaching series may be terminable by me.


Coaching Methods:

I warrant that I am a certified coach with Results Coaching Systems, a member of the International Coach Federation and adhere to their code of ethics and that I am reasonably capable of performing the coaching activities. You acknowledge that the coaching sessions may be personally, emotionally or physically challenging and that there may be occasions when you feel frustration, annoyance or stress. You must make all efforts to ensure you are capable of attending and participating in all coaching sessions and shall take all steps necessary to cancel or defer any session that you are not well enough to continue. You acknowledge that coaching is not therapeutic in nature or intent and does not deal with abnormal health issues. You must advise me if there are any psychiatric, counselling or health issues, current or past, that may impact on your ability to achieve the benefits from coaching. Your failure to comply with any of these issues may make this coaching series terminable by me. You will not hold me responsible for any loss or cost incurred by you in the event of any emotional, mental or physical stress caused either directly or indirectly in relation to the coaching sessions. You shall indemnify me against any such claim.
