Welcome to Adoptee Empowerment coaching
Please fill in the four forms listed below before your first scheduled coaching session.
To my client: Please review, adjust, sign where indicated, and return to me at the above address / or, at the above email address. Signed agreement to be in my hands at least 24 hours prior to our first scheduled coaching session.
I have positive expectations for a coaching relationship that serves to assist you in creating 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 amount of 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 3 months.
Fees: My coaching fee is payable online at LIFECOACHMMB.com. Please note, there is not commitment beyond month to month, but please give me a few weeks’ notice if you think you will be ending our coaching together. I have a client waiting list and giving a timely notice is deeply appreciated so that I may alert those awaiting coaching.
Coaching Procedure: I will call you at the specified appointment time, unless we make other arrangements. If you need to reschedule our appointment, please give me 24 hours notice. If you have an emergency or illness, you can reschedule with less than 24 hours notice. If you do not show up for a scheduled call, for any reason, and provide no notice (latest notice can be five minutes past scheduled session start time), we will not make up that time. If I need to reschedule, I will give you at least 24 hours notice as well, barring an emergency or illness.
Problems: 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 via telephone or email entails challenges since we cannot see body language, facial expressions, etc. Therefore we give each other plenty of latitude, and promptly ask for clarification if there is a mis-connection.
I agree to serve as your Coach — to partner with you to identify and achieve your personal and/or professional goals.
As your Coach, I cannot guarantee results. You will create powerful results by having the courage and determination to forward the action in your life.
During the time we spend together in our coaching sessions, I will devote my time, thoughts, and energy to you, exclusively. In between our sessions, I may not be instantly available, as I may be attending to others, or myself. I will however, always attempt to be available within 24 hours.
I am a Coach, not a psychotherapist or physician, and I am not trained in diagnosing psychological or medical conditions. If any issues come up for you that should be handled by a licensed therapist or physician, I insist that you must attend to your health by contacting the appropriate professional.
As you Coach, I will bring attentive listening, understanding, belief in you and commitment to your success. You can expect me to challenge you, offer fresh perspectives, make requests (including assigning homework), acknowledge your wins, and guarantee utmost confidentiality (to the fullest extent of the law, and so long as I don’t fear for your or another’s safety) in the powerful, sacred relationship.
I am bound to abide by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) Ethical Principles and Code of Ethics, please familiarize yourself with them, they are found at this link.
I am motivated and committed to taking action on my determined personal and professional goals. I realize that anything less than my intentional full participation will not lead to my success.
I accept full responsibility for myself and any actions I take that might result from Coaching.
I am under the care of a physician and healthy enough to engage in coaching.
I can financially afford the Coaching fee at this time. I agree to pay promptly by the first of the month for that month’s fee. I agree that ultimately, it is my responsibility that my coach gets paid for the services I use.
I agree to honor my scheduled sessions times.
I have read and agree with the Coaching Guidelines and the Coaching Agreement.
