Life Coaching Agreement & Contract
I am so excited to have this opportunity to work together. I have positive expectations that our professional relationship will help you discover and develop the life YOU want to live. To partner together professionally, I want you to be familiar with the following agreement. You will get to know themselves in new ways. Working with your Coach is a healthy way for them to grow. Most clients hire a Coach to accomplish several specific goals. Coaching is all about being and expressing your real and best self. So don't be surprised if you discover new parts of yourself or if you find your goals adjusting to reflect who you really are and who you want to be. This discovery process is natural, so there is no need for you to put pressure on yourself to rush it, just realize it will likely happen. Accelerated personal growth is a benefit of being Coached.
Terms of Coaching: I invite you to think of coaching as a process. Many people create change for themselves in a short time. However, to refine and sustain the change takes several months. Although not mandatory, I encourage you to commit to our coaching relationship to last at least 3 months.
Confidentiality: The nature of the Coaching relationship involves sharing personal and confidential information. Unless permission is granted, all conversations, Coaching sessions, and written communications will remain confidential between us, except where prohibited by law.
Fees: My coaching fee is payable to Maria Vazquez. The fees are specific to the session packages. You can decide which package works best for your needs by indicating the appropriate package at the end of this document. There is no commitment beyond each package. Please notify me if you are looking to extend or change your coaching package. Conversely, please give me 2 weeks' notice if you think you will be ending our coaching together. One coaching call per 4 week session will be a live face to face meeting if you so desire. We will meet at a place of your discretion, so long as it provides privacy, allows us to maximize our time together, provides us both with safety and comfort and will stay within the time allotted.
Packages A & B require a 3 month minimum commitment.
A: One 1.5 hour call per month $150 per session
B: Four 1 hour calls bi-weekly $320 for 4 sessions ($80 per session)
C: Three 1 hour calls monthly $300 for 3 sessions ($100 per session)
D: Six 1 hour calls bi-weekly paid up front: $450 for 6 sessions ($75 per session)
Procedure: I will call you at the specified time, unless we make other arrangements. If you wish to connect with me in between sessions with a challenge, a success or an inquiry, please do so via email. I will make every attempt to respond to your e-mail within 24 hours, with an email. I'm happy to provide this extra level of service at no additional charge. I will ask that you respect this addition and not exceed 2 emails per week, in between our coaching calls.
Changes: If you need to reschedule our appointment, please give me 24 hours notice. If you have an emergency or illness, you can reschedule with less than 24 hours notice. If you do not show up for a scheduled call, for any reason, and provide no notice, we will not make up that time and you will be required to pay for the session. If I need to reschedule, I will give you at least 24 hours notice as well, barring an emergency or illness.
Between Calls: Email me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Problems: If I ever say or do anything that upsets you or doesn't feel right, please bring it to my attention so that we can resolve it as soon as possible. My objective is to have a coaching relationship that is fully open, honest, real and trusting in our communication styles. We should both realize that communication via telephone or email entails extra challenges since we can not see body language, facial expressions, etc. Therefore we give each other plenty of grace, and promptly ask for clarification if there is a miscommunication or misunderstanding.
- I agree to serve as your Coach - to partner with you to identify and achieve your personal and/or professional goals.
- As your Coach, I cannot guarantee results. You will create powerful results by having the courage and determination to move forward with action in your life.
- During the time we spend together in our coaching sessions, I will devote my time, thoughts, and energy to you, exclusively. In between our sessions, I may not be instantly available, as I may be attending to others, or myself. I will however, always attempt to be available within 24 hours via email.
- I am a Coach, not a psychotherapist or physician, and I am not trained in diagnosing psychological or medical conditions. If any issues come up for you that should be handled by a licensed therapist or physician, I insist that you must attend to your health by contacting the appropriate professional.
- As your Coach, I will bring attentive listening, understanding, belief in you and commitment to your success. You can expect me to challenge you, offer fresh perspectives, make requests (including assigning homework), acknowledge your wins, and guarantee utmost confidentiality (to the fullest extent of the law, and so long as I don't fear for your or another's safety) in the powerful and sacred relationship.
- I am motivated and committed to taking action on my determined personal and professional goals. I realize that anything less than my intentional full participation will not lead to my success.
- I accept full responsibility for myself and any actions I take that might result from Coaching.
- I am under the care of a physician and healthy enough to engage in coaching.
- I can financially afford the Coaching fee at this time. I agree to pay promptly by the first of the month for that month's fee. I believe in investing in myself and I agree that ultimately, it is my responsibility that my coach gets paid for the services I use.
