The services and products, collectively The Services, to be provided by the coach to the client are coaching and tele-coaching , as designed jointly with the client. Coaching, which is not legal advice, therapy or counseling, may address specific personal projects, business successes, or general conditions in the client’s life or profession. Other coaching services include value clarification, brainstorming, identifying plans of action, and examining models of operating in life, asking clarifying questions, and making empowering requests. The Parties agree to engage in tele-coaching, that is online coaching, for the period of time included in the purchased Coaching Program through scheduled 60 minute online Zoom meetings and/or text and audio coaching via Voxer App, as applicable, or similar platforms when technical difficulties outside of the Coach’s control make the first unavailable. Coach will be available to Client by email and voicemail via Voxer App, in between scheduled meetings as defined by the Coach. Coach may also be available for additional time, per Client’s request on a prorated basis rate of CHF250 (for example, reviewing documents, supporting Client in specific tasks, engaging in other Client-related services outside of coaching hours).
When you, hereon known in this section as "The Client" sign up through this Site and/or purchase a Coaching Service Program or Digital Course directly with The Coach, you enter into an Agreement with The Company as follows:
The Coach, certified at the Master Level in the fields of Neurolinguistic Programming, TIME TM Techniques, Emotional Freedom Techniques, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Life and Success Coaching, and you The Client, together The Parties whereby the Coach agrees to provide Coaching Services for the Client focusing on the topics/results/outcomes/goals of personal development and whereby the Client agrees to receive such services understanding that:
Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance and not as 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.
The Coach will engage in direct and personal conversations. The Client can count on the coach to be honest and straightforward in asking questions and making requests. The Client understands that the power of the coaching relationship can only be granted by the Client, and the Client agrees to do just that — have the coaching relationship be powerful. If the Client believes the coaching is not working as desired, the Client will communicate and take action to return the power to the coaching relationship.Essentially this means that while we are not business partners, we do have a partnership where I the Coach ask you powerful and important questions, in order to help you achieve your desired results with the use of alternative holistic techniques, but that YOU are the only one responsible for the results because only you can take action in your life.
The Coach will focus on solutions and how a problem is made, instead of the contents of the problem for The Client. Meaning you'll spend a lot less time talking about what happened and a lot more on techniques designed to break down and release that problem at a subconscious level.Your alternative and complementary, holistic healthcare practitioner has been trained in NLP, Emotional Freedom Techniques, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Life and Success Coaching, and TIME TechniquesTM at the Master level, and the therapy will probably be different from what you might have expected.In total, The Coach and Client will not spend a lot of time talking about the problem, just gathering information about it. In fact, most of the session(s) are about other things. It is very important for us to discover the internal thought process of HOW you create or are at cause for the problem. That means that we are looking for your strategy, or how you structure the problem. Because our focus is on structure, that means that, once we discover it, we can move on and focus on having the problem disappear very quickly. Because of this,the Coach may cut short your answers or even talk about your problem in ways that you have never considered. They may even ask you questions that you do not totally understand consciously in order for your Unconscious Mind to make the changes you want at the unconscious level. It is important to do this so that we can reduce the time taken for the therapeutic process. If you have been in a therapy session before, expect that this one will be very different, and quite a bit shorter.
Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing his/her/their own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and his/her/their coaching calls and interactions with the Coach. 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 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. Furthermore Client understands 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.Client acknowledges that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of his, her, or their life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education 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.
The Client further acknowledges that he/she/they may terminate or discontinue the coaching relationship at any time.
The Client agrees to communicate honestly and understands that in order to enhance the coaching relationship being open to feedback and assistance and is necessary. You as the Client agree to procuring the time and energy to participate fully in the program. Including, but not limited to, performing tasks, integration assignments, and projects, agreed upon by the Client to achieve goals set forth in the Coaching Program or Sessions with the Coach.
The Coach agrees to observe the ethics standards of the International Board of Coaches and Practitioners “(IBCP)” and the International Coach Federation “(ICF)” (Coachfederation.org/code-of-ethics). The fields of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, Coaching, EFT and Reiki, are self-regulating fields, meaning the members of the field regulate themselves. There is no government licensing for these fields in most countries, provinces, and states around the world. Codes of ethics by these boards provide a way for members to show that they meet an independent standard of education recommended to practice in each respective field. It is recommended that the Client review the ICF Code of Ethics and the applicable standards of behavior.
Not medical advice. The person you will be working with is not a licensed medical professional. That means that the Coach is not a Medical Doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, M.F.C.C., or M.S.W., and you acknowledge that you have never worked with a medically licensed person on your select problem for the Coaching Agreement. (If you have, you need to present the Coach with a letter of referral from them before the start of therapy.) If you have been prescribed medication to take by your medical physician, you need to present the Coach with a letter of consent from your doctor before we start therapy. This means a short written note stating that you have informed your healthcare provider of your decision to engage in NLP, TIME TechniquesTM, Life and Success coaching, or Hypnotherapy. Furthermore, nothing that happens here in therapy should be construed as, nor should you believe, that it is a substitute for the advice of a licensed medical person.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP): NLP is a model of communication. How we communicate to self and others, and how that communication creates and affects our behavior. As a study, it is a synthesis of cognitive and behavioral philosophies which focus on the information coming in through the neurology (cognitive) and the programs we run inside our heads to produce the behaviors (behavioral) we do.
TIME TechniquesTM: The techniques are a process of active imagination where the client imagines floating above his timeline and letting go of his negative emotions and or limiting decisions (or limiting beliefs). Then the client is also asked to imagine creating events in his future that support his goals or outcomes.
Hypnosis: This is the use of trance to make changes at the unconscious level. Hypnosis has been used to produce unconscious change with clients since 1843. All of our practitioners are trained and certified as Hypnotherapists by the International Board of Clinical Practitioners. Since Hypnosis may be used during your session, for your safety you should make sure that you are totally wide awake before driving or doing any other activity that may require concentration.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT or Tapping) is a therapy technique loosely based on the techniques of acupuncture or acupressure. It uses the same basic energy meridians in the body to eliminate physical, emotional and mental issues. It does not require needles or physical touch.
Life and Success Coaching: an NLP-based coaching method designed to maximize internal resources and potential to achieve success, providing accountability, support, and guidance, asking powerful questions that recover choice in individuals.

The Client also acknowledges his, her, or their, continuing obligation to raise any confidentiality questions or concerns with the Coach in a timely manner.
Release of Information According to the ethics of our profession, topics may be anonymously and hypothetically shared with other coaching professionals for training, supervision, mentoring, evaluation, and for coach professional development and/or consultation purposes.
