What is discussed during our coaching sessions is confidential. I will not discuss this information with other people without your written consent. The only exceptions to confidentiality are those times when a coach is required by law to break confidentiality such as to comply with a court order, to report suspected child abuse or neglect, or when clients threaten to harm themselves or someone else.
*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 professional development and/or consultation purposes.
Nature of the Relationship:
- A) As the client, you are aware that the coaching relationship is in no way to be construed as psychological counseling, psychotherapy, or a mental health-related service. Should you feel the need for professional counseling or therapy, it is your responsibility to seek a licensed professional.
- B) You are solely responsible for creating and implementing physical, mental, and emotional well-being decisions, choices, and actions as a result of our coaching partnership. As such, you agree that the coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inactions or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the coach. Coaching results are not guaranteed. You enter into coaching with the understanding that you are responsible for creating your own results. You are hiring Cindy Bayles, FLC, for the purpose of navigating and supporting you with respect to achieving your goals.
