Welcome to coaching; I look forward to working together!
Here are a few guidelines that help our relationship work best. I believe my role as a coach involves many elements. I provide a safe, compassionate environment where clients have the opportunity to learn more about themselves and work towards personal goals. If you have any questions, please ask me.
Clients pay me at the beginning of session or on a monthly basis, unless prior arrangements have been made. Payment may be made by check, cash or credit card.
Please come to session with any updates, progress and/or current challenges. Let me know what you want to work on, and be ready to be coached. Many clients benefit from filling out a session preparation form and e-mailing it to me before session or just bringing it with them. You generate our session agenda and I support you and that agenda. It is my privilege to work as a coach. My coaching is a collaborative process, which involves respect, curiosity, kindness and often humour.
Please give me 24 hours notice if you have to cancel or reschedule a session. If you are unable to cancel with 24 hours notice and unable to reschedule for the same week you will be charged a cancellation fee at your session rate. If you have an emergency, we will attempt to work around it. I will afford you the same amount of notice, if I am unable to, our next session is on me.
Please call between sessions if you need “spot coaching”, have a problem, or can’t wait to share a win with me. (You can also text or e-mail me). I enjoy delivering this extra level of service. I do not bill for additional time of this type, but I ask that you please keep the extra calls to five or ten minutes. When you leave a message, let me know if you want a call back or if you are just sharing.
It is important that you are satisfied with our relationship. If I ever say or do something that upsets you or doesn’t feel right, please bring it up. I promise to do what is necessary and appropriate to correct those problems.
It is necessary for the you the client to implement the coaching that is given to feel that coaching is a success. You have hired me to coach you to do things differently than you ever have before. You will get out of the coaching the effort you put into it… And you are worth your own effort!
So you think coaching might be for you? I offer a free half hour initial consult where you can meet with me, ask me questions and see if I might be a good fit for you. Call, email or text me and let’s set something up.
