Coaching is an alliance (not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the Client to maximize personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional, or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.
Coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. Coaching is not 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. The information provided on this website is for informational purposes only and is not intended to substitute professional medical advice, diagnoses, or treatment.
The Coach is not a medical professional. The Coach does not provide healthcare, medical, or nutritional therapy services. The Coach does not attempt to diagnose, treat, prevent, or cure any physical, mental, or emotional issue.
The Client should always seek advice from a physician or other qualified healthcare provider before undertaking any new health regimen. It is the Client's exclusive responsibility to seek such independent professional guidance as needed. If the Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, it is recommended that the Client promptly inform the mental health care provider of the nature and extent of the coaching relationship established through any of these programs.
The Coach makes no guarantees, representations, or warranties of any kind or nature, express or implied, with respect to the coaching services negotiated, agreed upon and rendered for any of the programs offered on this site. In no event shall the Coach be liable to the Client for any indirect, consequential, or special damages. Notwithstanding any damages that the Client may incur, the Coach’s entire liability under this Agreement, and the Client’s exclusive remedy, shall be limited to the amount actually paid by the Client to the Coach under this Agreement for all coaching services rendered through and including the termination date.
