Coaching Agreement

The framework below outlines some ground rules for our planned coaching sessions. It is intended to establish some principles and commitments from me as your Coach and you as the Client.

Coaching can sometimes touch deep emotions. If I believe it is in your best interests I will suggest that Counselling/Therapy would be more beneficial before starting Coaching or if it becomes apparent during our sessions. You will take responsibility for your emotional well-being throughout the Coaching Sessions and after. We will be respectful of one another at all times in behaviour and language.

I will

  • be reliable in keeping appointments
  • actively listen and help you explore your ideas without imposing mine
  • be non-judgemental
  • explore advantages and disadvantages of different courses of action
  • encourage you to reflect between sessions and complete homework that you have set
  • provide feedback and challenge existing beliefs to help you rewrite your story
  • help you decide what if any help you may want/need beyond coaching

I ask that you will

  • be reliable in keeping appointments. Two days notice of cancellation is required to avoid payment in full
  • complete tasks and homework assignments that you have set yourself
  • be honest and open in our conversations
  • be 100% committed to taking responsibility for our own development

All information from our sessions will be completely Confidential and will remain between us except under the following circumstances.

  1. From time to time I will discuss my work with a Supervisor, this is standard practice and helps me to work as well as I can with you. My Supervisor is bound by the same Codes of Ethics and confidentiality as myself.
  2. If required by a Court of Law to give evidence for example in criminal proceedings.
  3. I believe there is a risk of you harming yourself or others. However, this would only be in extreme circumstances which would be discussed with your first.
