Blue Diamond Coaching – Key T&Cs

Coaching is partnership between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential.

Responsibilities:

  1. Coach agrees to maintain the ethics and standards of behavior set by the International Coach Federation “(ICF)”. www.coachfederation.org/ethics
  1. Client is responsible for creating and implementing his/her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results. As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not and will not be liable for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the Coach. Client understands coaching is not therapy and does not substitute for therapy if needed, and does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.
  1. Client understands that coaching is notto be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, mental, medical or other qualified professionals and will seek independent professional guidance for such matters. If Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, Coach will recommend that Client inform the mental health care provider.
  1. Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.

Services: The parties agree to engage in a 6 session Coaching Program through in-person / internet / telephone meetings. Coach will be available to Client by e-mail and voicemail in between scheduled meetings as defined by the Coach. Coach may also be available for additional time, per client’s request on a prorated basis rate of £X per hour (for example, reviewing documents, reading or writing reports, engaging in other client related services outside of coaching hours).

Each session shall last approx. 45-60 minutes.

Procedure: The time of the coaching meetings and/or location will be determined by Coach and Client based on a mutually agreed upon time.

Schedule Fees:

Fees are agreed when we enter into a contract and maybe subject to change thereafter.

All fees are payable before the first session, by bank transfer or cash.

Confidentiality: This coaching relationship, as well as all information (documented or verbal) that the Client shares with the Coach as part of this relationship, is bound to confidentiality by the ICF Code of Ethics but is not considered a legally confidential relationship (like in Medicine or Law). The Coach agrees notto disclose any information pertaining to the Client without the Client’s written consent. The Coach will not disclose the Client’s name as a reference without the Client’s consent. Confidential information does notinclude information that: (a) was in the Coach’s possession prior to its being furnished by the Client; (b) is generally known to the public or in the Client’s industry; (c) is obtained by the Coach from a third party, without breach of any obligation to the Client; (d) is independently developed by the Coach without use of or reference to the Client’s confidential information; or (e) that the Coach is required by law to disclose.

Cancellation Policy: Client agrees that it is the Client’s responsibility to notify the Coach 24 hours in advance of the scheduled calls/meetings. Coach reserves the right to bill Client for a missed meeting. Coach will attempt in good faith to reschedule the missed meeting.

 

Termination: Either the Client or the Coach may terminate this agreement at any time with 1 week’s written notice. On termination by the Client, any outstanding sessions will be refunded at 50% of the equivalent session rate. On termination by the Coach, any outstanding sessions will be refunded at 100% of the equivalent session rate.

Limited Liability: Except as expressly provided in this agreement, the Coach makes no guarantees or warranties, express or implied. In no event will the Coach be liable to the Client for consequential or special damages. Notwithstanding any damages that the Client may incur, the Coach’s entire liability under this agreement, and the Client’s exclusive remedy, will be limited to the amount paid by the Client to the Coach under this agreement for all services rendered up until the termination date.

This is the entire agreement of the parties, and reflects a complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter. This agreement supersedes all prior written and oral representations.

If a dispute arises out of this agreement that cannot be resolved by mutual consent, the Client and Coach agree to attempt to mediate in good faith for up to 30 days after notice given. If the dispute is not resolved, and in the event of legal action, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover attorney’s fees and court costs from the other party.
