ABOUT THE COACHING PROCESS
“Professional Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into action. Coaching accelerates the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be. Coaches recognize that results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach’s efforts and application of the coaching process.” (Quotation from The International Coach Federation.)
As a Certified Divorce Coach, it is my duty to protect the confidentiality of the communications with my clients, including coaching clients, but there are limitations to confidentiality if sessions are not conducted in-office. Confidentiality cannot be guaranteed if sessions are conducted via phone or online. Clients should use their own discretion when utilizing these options.

TELEPHONE AVAILABILITY AND EMERGENCIES

You may leave a message for me at any time on my confidential voicemail.

TERMINATION OF COACHING AND REFUND POLICY
The length of your coaching and the timing depend on the specifics of your goals and the progress you achieve. Your coach will help define your direction, but it’s the client’s responsibility to create the time and energy to fully participate in the program. Either the coach or client may discontinue coaching at any time, but refunds on packages will not be given.
I understand that the coaching services I will be receiving from my Coach are not offered as a substitute for professional mental health care or medical care and are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any mental health or medical conditions. I also understand that my Coach is not acting as a mental health counselor or a medical professional.
I understand that coaching is, at present, an unregulated industry and that my Coach is not licensed by the State of Colorado or any other state. I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my well-being during my coaching sessions, and subsequently, including my choices and decisions.
I understand that 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 comments and ideas offered by my Coach are solely for the purpose of aiding me/us in achieving defined goals.
I understand that to the extent our work together involves career or business, my Coach is not promising outcomes included but not limited to increased clientele, profitability and/or business success.

I understand that necessary actions will be taken and my confidentiality agreement is limited in this capacity.

This agreement is for Coaching, not Psychotherapy. Melissa Westerman is working only within the capacities of a Divorce and Communication Coach and will not be held liable for discrepancies. While coaching can work with issues such as identifying and reaching life goals and changing the behaviors that aren’t working well for you, coaching will not address psychological issues such as depression and anxiety. For issues such as these, seek the medical attention from a Physician or Licensed Mental Health Professional in your area.
By signing this agreement, you are agreeing that you understand the difference in these two functions, and you will get appropriate professional help for mental health issues if necessary. Your signature further indicates that you have read this agreement for services carefully, understand its contents and the financial obligations set forth herein.
Please contact your coach, trusted advisor or attorney to address any questions or concerns concerning this Agreement before you sign.
