Life Coaching Agreement

Coaching Agreement


I agree to serve as your Coach – to partner with you to identify and achieve your personal and/or professional goals.

As your Coach, I cannot guarantee results.  You will create powerful results by having the courage and determination to forward the action in your life. You are ultimately in charge of your life and will create your results.

During the time we spend together in our coaching sessions, I will devote my time, thoughts, and energy to you, exclusively.  In between our sessions, I may not be instantly available, as I may be attending to others, or myself.  I will however, always attempt to be available within 24 hours.

I am a Coach, not a psychotherapist or physician, and I am not trained in diagnosing psychological or medical conditions.  If any issues come up for you that should be handled by a licensed therapist or physician, I insist that you must attend to your health by contacting the appropriate professional.

As your Coach, I will bring attentive listening, understanding, belief in you and commitment to your success.  You can expect me to challenge you, offer fresh perspectives, make requests (including assigning homework), acknowledge your wins, and guarantee utmost confidentiality (to the fullest extent of the law, and so long as I don’t fear for your or another’s safety) in the powerful, sacred relationship.

I am bound to abide by the ICF Code of Ethics, please familiarize yourself with them, they are attached at the end of the agreement.


I am motivated and committed to taking action on my determined personal and professional goals.  I realize that anything less than my intentional full participation will not lead to my success.

As a client, I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my well-being during my coaching periods, including my choices and decisions. I recognize that coaching is not psychotherapy or counseling, and that professional referrals will be given if needed. I promise that if I am currently in therapy or otherwise under the care of a mental health professional, that I have consulted with this person regarding the advisability of working with a life coach and that this person is aware of my decision to proceed with the life coaching relationship. I understand that life coaching does not treat mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. I understand that life coaching is not a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment, and I will not use it in place of any form of therapy.

I understand that all information shared during the coaching relationship will be held confidential unless otherwise stated in writing, except as required by law. I understand that certain topics may be anonymously shared with other life-coaching professionals for training or consultation purposes.

I accept full responsibility for myself and any actions I take that might result from Coaching. I understand that life coaching is not to be used in lieu of professional advice. I will seek professional guidance for any legal, medical, financial, business, spiritual, or other matters. I understand that all decisions in these areas are exclusively mine and I acknowledge that my decisions and my actions regarding them are my responsibility. I understand that the coach does not claim to be a medical or mental health professional of any kind. I agree not to keep my coach liable for any of my decisions for my decision are mine only.

I can financially afford the Coaching fee at this time.  I agree to pay promptly by the first of the month for that month’s scheduled sessions.  I agree that ultimately, it is my responsibility that my coach gets paid for the services I use.

I agree to honor my scheduled session times.

I have read and agree with the Coaching Guidelines and the Coaching Agreement.
