Coaching, which is not directive advice, counselling, or therapy, may address overall goals, specific projects, or general conditions in Client’s life or profession. Coaching services may include setting priorities, establishing goals, identifying resources, brainstorming, creating action plans, strategizing, asking clarifying questions, and providing models, examples, and in-the-moment skills training. The Provider promises that all information provided by Client will be kept strictly confidential, as permissible by law.
Client understands these Services will not prescribe or assess micro-and macronutrient levels; provide health care, medical or nutrition therapy services; or diagnose, treat or cure any disease, condition or other physical or mental ailment of the human body. Client understands if they should experience any such issues they should see their registered physician or other practitioner as determined by their own judgment.
If the Client is under the care of a health care professional or currently uses prescription medications, the Client should discuss any dietary changes or potential dietary supplements use with his or her doctor, and should not discontinue any prescription medications without first consulting his or her doctor. Client understands that the information in these Services is NOT medical or nursing advice and is not meant to take the place of seeing licensed health professionals.
The Provider’s requests for Client’s participation in the Services:
- Please be on time to all appointments. If you will be late, notify the Provider in advance. If you will miss an appointment, notify the Provider at least 24 hours in advance. Appointments missed without 24 hours notice will only be rescheduled at the Provider’s sole discretion.

- Make a commitment to the action plans you create, and do what you have agreed to do.

Services are provided on an individual, one-by-one basis (“Term”). Client understands that a relationship with the Provider does not exist between the Parties after the conclusion of the Services. If the Parties desire to continue their relationship, a separate agreement will be entered into.
The Provider is committed to providing all clients in the Services with a positive Services experience.
