I am committed to taking positive action to make improvements in my life and to meet the goals I identify as necessary to do this. I am committed to being as open and honest as necessary in order to work with my coach towards achieving my goals.

Agreed fees to be paid in advance of sessions. If I need to re-schedule, I will endeavour to do so with at least 48 hours notice. We understand that life happens and can be unpredictable, however if a coaching session is cancelled by the client with less than 24 hours notice, the full fee will be charged. This keeps you accountable and serves to cover the cost of the coach, who will have kept this slot open for you.
