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.

Terms and Conditions
Participation by any individual in a coaching session constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions.

Unless otherwise agreed, the client is responsible for contacting David at agreed times. David is responsible for ensuring that he is available for consultation at agreed times.
The length of each session is as agreed between David and the client before coaching sessions commence.

Dates and Times of Sessions
The date and time of the first session and any subsequent session will be agreed between David and the client by phone, online or by email.
David may assign the client tasks or exercises to complete between coaching sessions. There is no obligation on the client to complete these items of ‘homework’, but not doing so may slow the client’s progress in gaining improved quality of life or achieving desired business or personal outcomes.
The client may contact David by phone, text or e-mail between sessions to seek clarification regarding anything arising from a coaching session or for administrative purposes (e.g. where a client needs to rearrange a coaching session).
If a client needs to rearrange a coaching session, they should provide at least 24 hours notice. In exceptional circumstances David may need to rearrange a coaching session. In those instances he will also give the client 24 hours notice where practical.
Personal information or business information supplied by clients in coaching sessions will be treated as confidential. It will not be disclosed to a third party without the client’s prior permission, save where required by law or where action might be necessary to prevent harm to the client or someone else.
In exceptional circumstances, such as illness or unavailability due to bereavement or other commitments, inappropriate behavior by the client, actual or potential conflict of interest, or other reasons, David can decide to terminate the service to the client early or refuse or be unable to provide further coaching sessions to the client. In such a circumstance the client will be given reasonable notice of termination by David where practicable and will be refunded any advance payments made for coaching sessions not yet provided.
David will seek to enable the client to improve their quality of life and to achieve their desired outcomes. Remarkable results can be achieved where clients follow a clear plan in a committed way. However, the client has sole responsibility for taking important decisions in their life or business. David has no liability for any loss incurred by any client, whether financial or otherwise, following commencement of coaching sessions, or for any perceived failure by the client, whether justified or otherwise, to achieve greater self-empowerment or to achieve their desired outcomes or goals.
This contract is governed by the law of Florida whose courts have exclusive jurisdiction in relation to any dispute, disagreement, proceedings or legal claim of any nature relating to the service provided or the contract.
