Welcome to Dating IQ, a professional coaching practice.
This document and attachments constitute a contract between us ("Coaching Agreement"). You should read it carefully and raise any questions and concerns that you have before you submit it.
Coaching services vary depending on your needs and desired level of support. They consist of individual, couple or group telecoaching. The costs vary with the amount of time you request. To be successful requires your commitment as the client to taking responsibility for the process and the outcomes that result from it. You'll need to be open and honest about your issues and needs, keep agreements and stay committed to your goals. My role as coach is to employ my expertise as a mentor, motivator and sounding board; which will get you on track, keep you focused, and hold you accountable for progress.
Nature of Relationship:
The coaching relationship is not psychotherapy, psychological counseling, or any type of therapy; nor is it a substitute for these services. In the event the client feels the need for professional counseling or therapy, it is the responsibility of the client to seek a licensed professional who can provide these services. If the coach believes that such services will be valuable to the client, the coach will recommend them.
As a certified coach, I protect
the confidentiality of the communications with my clients. I
will not voluntarily divulge that I am in
a coaching relationship with you without your written
permission. There are some
situations in which I am legally obligated to breach
your confidentiality in order to protect you or others from
harm. I must report
that to the appropriate state agency and (2) if a client
is an imminent
risk to him/herself
or makes threats of imminent violence against another
person; I am required to take protective actions. These situations
rarely occur in coaching
practices, but if such a situation does occur; I
will make every effort to discuss it with you before
taking any action.
If, at any time, you feel that your needs are not being met or you are not getting what you want out of the coaching, please tell me, so we can discuss your needs and adjust your coaching program, as needed. We will continue to work on the goals that you define unless you want to stop, which we will do whenever you ask.
The coach and client mutually recognize that they may discuss future plans, business affairs, customer lists, financial information, job information, goals, personal information, and other private information. The coach will not voluntarily communicate the client's information to a third party. In order to honor and protect the coach's intellectual property, the client likewise agrees not to disclose or communicate information about the coach's practice, materials, or methods to any third parties. The client also agrees NOT to give the Dating IQ telecourse bridge numbers to anyone not enrolled in the Dating IQ or The Quest for Your Ideal Mate course.
Coaching is scheduled at the mutual convenience of the coach and the client. The day and time for the next call will be scheduled at the close of each coaching session.
The client will call the coach at the prearranged time and telephone number as scheduled, and pays the telephone charges for the call. For group coaching calls and classes, the coach will pay for the teleconference line; and the clients will pay for the call into the conference line.
Please remember, cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance. There will be no refund or credit for cancellations made less than 24 hours prior to a scheduled session. The coach will make reasonable efforts to reschedule sessions that are cancelled in a timely manner.
The coach is paid in advance of each series of coaching calls. The first coaching session will begin after this agreement is signed and faxed, mailed, or electronically sent to the coach, and the first payment is received by credit/debit card (Visa, MC, Amex) or check. Services must be paid in advance, or they cannot be provided. Services requested by the client, in addition to coaching calls, will be billed at a prorated hourly rate (agreed in advance) and will be paid within 30 days of service. Any changes to this procedure must be mutually agreed upon in writing.
Either party may end the coaching relationship by providing the other party with a one week written notice, which may be transmitted by email or fax.
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this agreement, or the breach of this agreement, shall be settled by arbitration, which will occur via telephone by an arbitrator that we mutually agree upon. The costs of the arbitration shall be shared equally between the parties.
