The services provided by Maria Bach Life Coaching are generally conducted via telephone, social media platform or person. Coaching is a partnership focused on developing the client’s awareness, thinking, and abilities to help the client identify and achieve his/her goals. In coaching conversations, I will be direct and 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 counselling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care or substance abuse treatment and I will not use it in place of any form of diagnosis, treatment, or therapy.
Terms of Coaching
I invite you to think of Coaching as a process. Many people create change for themselves in a short time. However, to refine and sustain the change takes several months. Although not binding, I would ask that you expect our Coaching relationship to last at least 3 months.
Maria Bach Life Coaching fully protects the privacy and confidentiality of the communications with its Clients. At no time will Maria Bach Life Coaching voluntarily divulge the coaching relationship between themselves and their Clients without written permission from the Clients, unless required to do so by law.
My Coaching Commitment
• I will honour the time that we are together
• I will not judge you and will respect your perceptions of the world
• It is not my job to change you. It is my privilege to bring you into awareness, provide clarity on your choices, and if you choose, make life changing actions
• My personal commitment to you – be impeccable with my word and keep my commitments
• We will concentrate on what is working in your life and how to create more that will work for you
Coaching fees are paid in advance of sessions. Payment for Coaching Sessions are to be made online via the website www.mariabach.com.au In the event Client fails to pay any amount due by 24 hours prior to the scheduled session, it may be cancelled at the Coach’s discretion.
At the scheduled appointment time, the Client agrees to contact the Coach on an agreed upon link or number. The Coach and client commit to start and finish each session on time. If the client is more than 10 minutes late for a coaching session, the Coach will assume the session is cancelled and the client will forfeit the session fee.
I ask that you give 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or change the time of appointment. I will make every effort as well, to re-schedule sessions which are cancelled in a timely manner. If a client does not cancel in a timely manner on a regular basis, I will need to end our coaching relationship.
Cancellation (less than 24 hours before) and/or no‐show appointments are billed to the client for the full amount.
Termination of Services
Either Party may terminate this Agreement immediately upon notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Client shall not be relieved of any obligations to pay fees due to Maria Bach Life Coaching solely because of the termination of this Agreement.
