Welcome as a Client!
I look forward to working with you as your coach to help you accomplish your goals. On a business note I want you to be familiar with the following policies and procedures which outline how I manage my coaching business. If you have any questions, please call me,
Coaching sessions are scheduled on an ongoing monthly basis. They include two one-hour sessions per month, including brief email support for accountability between coaching sessions. Sessions are done by phone or Skype. The monthly fee is $300.00, payable at the beginning of each month for the duration of coaching. Coaching is not covered by insurance.
Payment is due at the beginning of each month, either by check or through PayPal. I will furnish you a monthly statement for your records.
I ask 48 hours of notice during business hours in order not to charge you for a missed session. Please place all calls to my cell phone at 561-801-5752. I will make reasonable efforts to reschedule sessions given timely notice.
The information provided here and through Cancer Wellness Coaching is designed to provide helpful information on the subjects discussed. It is not meant to be used, nor should it be used, to diagnose or treat any medical condition. For diagnosis or treatment of any medical problem, consult your own physician.
You or I may end the coaching relationship at any time. If you feel your needs are not being met, please let me know so we can discuss and adjust your coaching program as needed.
Everything that is shared in the coaching experience is confidential. Information is only released with your written permission or if required by court order.
Although I may make suggestions, you assume responsibility for your results and outcomes. You are in charge of what you choose to do or not do with your coach’s advice suggestions, and ideas, I welcome your feedback and rely on knowing that you protect yourself and your needs by only taking actions that are best for you.
As your coach I agree to serve as a guide, advisor, and consultant in the areas you identify. You assume sole responsibility to decide which actions to take regarding your life choices and career or development path.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Thomas J. (Tim) Bachmeyer, Ph.D. from any liability, legal claims, actions, or judgments that may arise as a result of client’s negligent performance or any perceived act of omission or negligence on the part of the coach in accordance with this agreement.
If I ever say or do something that upsets you or just doesn’t feel right, please bring it up. I promise to do what is necessary to have you be satisfied. I learn a lot from my clients, and open communication is the foundation of our relationship.
Coaching versus psychotherapy
Coaching is not psychotherapy. Coaching and psychotherapy each may use knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral and interactive counseling techniques. There are major differences in the goal, focus, and level of professional responsibility. There may be situations where I may recommend psychotherapy and will refer you to a psychotherapist. I may also be professionally obligated to breach your confidentiality in order to protect others from harm, such as threatening to hurt yourself or someone else, abuse of a child or senior citizen. Every effort will be made to discuss it with you before taking action.
Payment for starting coaching sessions signals your consent and acceptance of this coaching agreement, including these policies and fees.
To schedule an appointment call 561-801-5752 or email tim at email@example.com.
