First things first. Tell me some of your demographic background and how you'd like me to refer to you!
If you were going to narrow it down (for now) what would be the top three goals that you'd like to accomplish during the next three months? Please enter them (in order of priority) in the text boxes below.
I am certified and trained in a variety of specific modalities which are woven into our sessions to best meet your needs and preferences. In order to get a better idea of how to maximize our time together, please let me know what modalities are most (and least!) interesting to you. If you aren't sure or haven't heard of it - please select the "curious/unsure" column.
Part of my session may include Hypnosis (with your permission). This is because the area we want to work with is your sub-conscious brain. Hypnosis allows you to connect there in a relaxed and safe environment. I guide you and you remain in control at all times.
Hypnosis is safe and again, you remain in control at all times. It is not like what you may have seen on stage shows and TV.
Hypnosis is effective with a large number of issues and areas. However, Hypnosis’ Practitioners do not under any circumstance, diagnose any illnesses or conditions nor do they purport to replace the treatment of a Medical Doctor (GP) or Psychotherapist. Should a Hypnosis Practitioner suspect that a client undergoing Hypnosis is suffering from an undiagnosed illness or condition, they would immediately refer the client to their primary care physician.
Hypnosis cannot, and should not, stand alone as the sole medical or psychological intervention for any disorder. Hypnosis should not be used instead of appropriate medical, dental, or psychological treatment, and any individual with a medical or psychological problem must consult a qualified health care provider for diagnosis and professional advice. Hypnosis should only be practiced by those who have been appropriately trained, who practice appropriately, and within the scope of their training, rules, and legislation.

Coaching Terms and Conditions.
Please review so you are fully aware of our partnership moving forward.
Client Agreement is between Deanna L. Byrne Coaching and yourself [Named at the beginning of this form].1. As a client, I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my physical, mental and emotional well-being during my coaching sessions, including my choices and decisions. I am aware that I can choose to discontinue coaching at any time. 2. I understand that coaching is a Professional-Client relationship I have with my coach that is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional, or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals. 3. I understand that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve all areas of my life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education, and recreation. I acknowledge that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching into those areas, and implement my choices is exclusively my responsibility. 4. I understand that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by CMHA (Canadian Mental Health Association). 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 diagnosis, treatment or therapy. If I am currently receiving psychiatric care, I will consult with my caregiver to ensure working with a coach is in my best interest at this time. 5. I understand that information will be held as confidential unless I state otherwise, in writing, except as required by law. I understand that if I reveal information that involves physically hurting myself or others, the coach must report such information and/or refer to mental health professionals accordingly. 6. I understand that certain topics may be anonymously and hypothetically shared with other coaching professionals or clients for training, educational OR consultation purposes and that Deanna Byrne will take great care to change any identifiable details to protect my privacy. 7. I understand that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, medical, financial, business, or other qualified professionals. I will seek independent professional guidance for legal, medical, financial, business, or other matters. I understand that all decisions in these areas are exclusively mine and I acknowledge that my decisions and my actions regarding them are my sole responsibility. 8. Because professional coaching is not considered medical consultation or treatment, health insurance does not apply.9. I take full responsibility for my role in this partnership and will strive to meet all challenges, program outlines, and accountability timelines. 10. I agree to the financial investment outline for my sessions and will be provided to me prior to sessions starting. My session "action plan" will be determined and sent to me prior to committing to session appointments.
11. I understand that each session must be pre-paid. In the event, I need to cancel or do not show up, that the payment refund policy will apply.
12. I understand that my session fees are non-refundable and If I choose to cancel my services, each file will be handled individually and any refunds determined at that time. There is an automatic $75.00 + HST administration fee deducted along with any session amounts based on a full session rate.
