Welcome to “Breaking Through: Navigating Your Creative Journey”!! I am happy to have you as a client. It is important to begin our relationship with a clear understanding about our work together, so that we can focus on achieving the outcomes you desire. Please read the agreement carefully before agreeing to the terms.
Definition of Coaching: Coaching is a professional partnership in which we work together to clarify areas that you would like to improve and work toward achieving your desired outcomes in those areas. Coaching is distinct from consulting in that I will help you come up with your own answers rather than advising. It is different from therapy in that we will address an any obstacles that keep you from achieving your goals, but we will not engage in therapy or any psychological area that requires training and licensing.
The Coaching Engagement: As part of the program, you will have access to group coaching calls with the other clients enrolled in “Breaking Through”. This program does not include one-on-one coaching.
Fees and Payment: The group coaching is part of the “Breaking Through” program, and included in the fee.
Coaching Calls: The group coaching call schedule will be sent out to you. Coaching will be done on a Zoom call, which will be recorded and uploaded to the Facebook group. You can submit questions in advance so that I can coach you during the call. The link to that form will also be sent out. If you miss a call, it won’t be rescheduled. Please do your best to be on the scheduled calls.
The Coach’s Responsibility: I am committed to supporting you in achieving your desired outcomes and having each session be meaningful and productive. I agree to conduct myself professionally and maintain the ethics and standards set by the International Coach Federation and the Board Certified Coach.
Note: if you don’t have the BCC credential, you can eliminate the reference to their Code of Ethics.
I will not offer advice in any area in which I am not qualified and will, upon request, assist you in finding a trained or licensed professional for any matter that is outside my scope of expertise.
Confidentiality: The expectation is that you will respect the other people in the “Breaking Through” program, and will respect their confidentiality. Videos and conversations will be contained in the group, and will not be shared in any way outside the group.
The Client’s Responsibility: You understand that you are responsible for keeping the agreements stated in this document, as well as any actions you take as a result of coaching, and for maintaining your own well-being.
Open Communication: I agree to communicate openly and honestly and to gently and compassionately share my observations as we work together. I encourage you to be open and honest with me, as we will get the best results from coaching if you share the full picture with me.
