7. Nature of Workshop Coaching

Coaching is a partnership between the coach and the client to help the client maximize their personal and/or professional potential. Coaching is not a legal business partnership.

A. You are solely responsible for your own physical, mental and emotional well-being, and the decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from your interactions with us. As such, you agree that we are 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 us. You understand that coaching is not therapy and does not substitute for therapy, and does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.

B. You acknowledge that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of your life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. You agree that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching principles into those areas and implementing choices is exclusively your responsibility.

C. You acknowledge 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 your exclusive responsibility to seek such independent professional guidance as needed.

D. You understand that in order to enhance the coaching relationship, you agree to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.
