Welcome to health coaching! I’m excited to be working with you.
As we get started, please review the following materials.
Integrative Health Coaching is designed to focus on you. You’ll have my full support and focus as we work through your health concerns and toward your health goals.
How Does This Work?
Coaching takes place in three-month cycles and involves one or two monthly consultations (selected when you signed up), where you are in the driver’s seat on your path to health.
Scheduling Regular Consultations
You can schedule your consultations at your convenience on the “Coaching” page (the one you signed up on). The system requires a booking to be placed at least 24 hours in advance, which gives me time to work it into my schedule, as well.
Booking via the website is preferred, as it automatically reserves time in my calendar for you.
While it is your responsibility to schedule your next appointment, feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
After The 3-Month Cycle
At the end of the three month cycle, the system will no longer bill for upcoming months, however, you are welcome to sign up again right away — or work out another arrangement with me personally (such as: month-to-month).
Coaching clients are welcome and encouraged to communicate with me directly via traditional email or Facebook Messenger. There is no limit to the amount of communication, and I will always try to get back to you within a business day — usually faster.
It’s a good idea to come to the coaching sessions prepared with an idea of what you want to focus on in each session.
However, if you aren’t sure which area you’d like to focus on, or are simply feeling lost or overwhelmed, do not feel pressured to choose one or more topics. We will discuss this during our next consultation and in our ongoing communications.
The key to an effective coaching relationship is communication. Please be honest with yourself and me throughout the coaching process. You can expect me to be straightforward, constructive and confidential. You can say anything to me, positive or negative; this includes letting me know if something makes you uncomfortable or if you don’t want to respond to a question. Please let me know at any time if you have concerns that we haven’t addressed.
As your coach, I am a resource for you to use to your best advantage. I will share concepts or insights, and ask re-orienting questions that are intended to increase your success in attaining your health goals.
I expect your best and expect you to be willing to grow. From time-to-time, I’ll make a direct request, like: “Will you accomplish ‘X’ by the end of the month?” You always have the option of accepting my request, declining or counter-offering something that might be more comfortable.
Retainer and Payment Procedure
The system will bill you at the beginning of each monthly cycle for three months. This will correlate to the date of initial sign-up, not the first of the month.
Because of the time, scope and nature of the work, the initial contract is for three (3) months of coaching. Thereafter, the work can continue in another 3-month cycle, or on a month-to-month basis. You do not need to let me know in advance if you would like to terminate our work together. You can control all elements of your account the the Profile/My Account page of this website.
To terminate our coaching partnership, the only thing you need to do is select ‘Cancel’ My Subscriptions in the My Account (Profile) page.
I recognize that in the course of our work, you may give me the following: future plans, health information, financial information, job information, goals, personal information, and other proprietary information. I will not at any time, either directly or indirectly, use any information for my own personal benefit, disclose, or communicate in any manner any information to any third party. I will not divulge that you and I are in a coaching relationship without your permission. I will hold everything that we say and do confidential unless you present a physical danger to yourself or others. In this case, I will inform legal authorities so that protective measures can be taken. In addition, you should know that unlike a physician or a lawyer our confidentiality agreement is not protected by law. Should it ever happen, I cannot claim in court to be unable to divulge the contents of our conversations.
Nature of the Relationship
You are aware that the coaching relationship is in no way to be construed as psychological counseling or psychotherapy. In the event that you feel the need for professional counseling or therapy, it is your responsibility to seek a licensed professional. Coaching results are not guaranteed. You enter into coaching with the understanding that you are responsible for creating your own results.
Simply stated, you understand that I am an Integrative Health Coach. I do not diagnose disease nor prescribe pharmaceutical medication, natural supplements, nor diets. I share my personal experiences, offer potential non-medical steps to follow, and operate as a thoughtful, respectful guide for your health journey. I cannot be held liable for any advice, suggestions or guidance that I provide during our work together.
