    related goals. In coaching conversations, the Coach will be direct, honest and
    encourage the Client to do the same. The success of the coaching engagement
    depends upon the Client’s commitment and openness to the process. If the Client
    believes that coaching is not working as desired, the Client agrees to communicate
    this to the Coach. Please note that life coaching should not be used as a substitute for
    counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care or substance abuse

    therapy.

    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. As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not
    and will not be liable for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of
    any services provided by the Coach.

    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. If
Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, it is recommended
