This Agreement is entered into by and between: Sophie Thomas (Coach) and Louise Worthington (Client) whereby Coach agrees to provide Coaching Services for Client.
A. Description of coaching: Coaching is partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that is designed to inspire the client to maximise personal potential.
B. Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and her coaching calls and interactions with the Coach and the programme. As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the Coach. Client understands that coaching is not therapy and does not substitute for therapy if needed, and does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.
C. Client acknowledges that she has purchased a programme which is designed to create transformational results. Client also acknowledges that her own dedication, openness, willingness and commitment to the practicing of the activities/mindset shifts will determine her level of transformation. Client further acknowledges that, as a normal part of transformation, she may feel some discomfort at times as she grows.
D. Client acknowledges that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of her life, including but not limited to: health, relationships and recreation. The Client agrees that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching principles into those areas and implementing choices is exclusively the Client’s responsibility.
E. Client acknowledges that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders and that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, or other professional advice by legal, medical or other qualified professionals and that it is the Client’s exclusive responsibility to seek such independent professional guidance as needed. If Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, it is recommended that the Client inform the mental health care provider of the nature and extent of the coaching relationship agreed upon by the Client and the Coach.
F. The Client understands that in order to enhance the coaching relationship, the Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully. The Client also understands that the role of the Coach is to challenge the Client to see a new perspective or take new actions and understands that the Coach always has the best interests of the Client at heart.
G. The parties agree to engage in a 10 week coaching programme via online video, audio, presentations, documents, and weekly calls.
H. It is the client’s responsibility to show up for each call.
I. There are no promises or guarantees on results whatsoever. However every care has been taken by the Coach to provide a programme that can offer excellent results. Every individual (Client) will get varying results, these will be based largely on the commitment they (the Client) made to the programme.
J. By purchasing the programme, for the full amount required for her to join, the Client can enjoy lifetime access to the videos, audios and files within the programme site. No further calls are available outside of the 10 week programme unless paid for as part of a separate programme.
K. All knowledge, lessons, and information remain the Coach’s Intellectual Property and are protected under copyright. Under no circumstances may they be shared beyond the Client, unless express written permission has been given by the Coach.
