The Life Coach – Client Relationship

EXPECTATIONS

Just to set expectations, I am not a therapist or a counselor. Nothing in our relationship is medical. Nor legal. I am a facilitator and a mentor. A coach. I help you to understand where you are now and where your goals are in the future. Together we discover the options that may get you from A to B. But all of this is already in you. It’s just that sometimes the perception of reality and actual reality get separated and tunnel vision sets in. Which is where life coaching plays its strongest role. To expand your vision and to allow you to see all possibilities.

PRICING & TIME

You selected a Life Coaching tier, which guarantees you a set number of hours per month. These hours are to be used within each calendar month, but allowances can be made to carry over time when scheduling issues prevent us from coming together. But generally speaking, we need to schedule and use those hours in the month they were purchased. And the first hour of our time together is always free, in order to set expectations and to determine if we feel a connection can be made.

THE MECHANICS

We will be speaking via Zoom (or Skype if needed). I can also do local interactions in Miami in a convenient setting. If you wish, I can also record our sessions for your playback. (They will be stored on a private Dropbox folder). We can also email, although please be aware that this will count towards your time.

PRIVACY

Even though Life Coaching is not regulated the same as the medical world, your privacy is paramount. What we discuss remains between us, period. The only exception would be if something was said or done that that could cause harm to you or others. Otherwise, I will never divulge what we discuss without your permission.
