The services to be provided by the Coach (as identified above) to the Client are coaching or tele-coaching, as designed jointly with the Client and Coach in a collaborative effort.

All telephone calls made in the intervals between the regularly scheduled telephone calls are permissible and based on availability; the parties agree to keep the calls to 10 minutes or less.

Confidentiality

The Coach promises the Client that all personal information provided to the Coach will be kept strictly confidential.  The Client understands that it is not a legally confidential relationship as in medicine or law or similar disciplines. The terms of this agreement are not intended to create and do not create a physician-patient relationship between the parties to this agreement.

Coaching Relationship

Throughout the working relationship, the Coach will engage in direct and personal conversations.

Declaration

I understand that I am working with Tami McVay, LLC. for professional life and wellness coaching at the agreed fee. Professional coaching is distinctly different from medical treatment, counseling, psychotherapy or psychoanalysis and does not deal with the diagnosis or treatment of psychological or emotional problems.

As professional coaching does not constitute medical consultation or treatment, traditional health insurance does not cover such coaching, and regular visits, calls and communication are not expected to be covered by health insurance. Client is responsible for creating and implementing his/her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results. As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not and will not be liable for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of services provided by the Coach.

Client further understands that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, financial, mental, medical or other qualified professionals and will seek independent professional guidance for such matters. Coaching does not treat, prevent or cure any mental disorder or medical disease. Coach is specifically not liable for any legal damages, actions, whether civil, criminal or otherwise as a result of such independent professional guidance.

Client understands that the coach is not a registered dietitian or nutritionist and will not be providing any meal plans designed by the coach. If a customized meal plan is offered as part of a program, it will be provided from a 3rd party tool created by nutritionists and available to certified personal trainers of the American Council on Exercise. Client agrees not to hold coach responsible for any customized meal plan. Client understands that they he/she check with a medical doctor or health care professional before proceeding with any physical or nutrition program.

Client understands that any financial advice is personal opinion of the coach and any financial and tax decisions are the responsibility of the client.  Client should consult with their own financial advisor or tax consultant.

Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.

Cancellation of Meetings/Calls

Client agrees that it is the Client’s responsibility to notify the Coach twenty four (24) hours in advance of the scheduled call/meeting of any cancellation. Coach reserves the right to bill Client for a missed meeting or a meeting that is not properly cancelled with such notice.

Coach will attempt in good faith to reschedule the missed meeting if possible.

Refund Policy

All sales are final. We do not accept returns on our products, services, or coaching. Payment is non-refundable.

Termination

Either the Client or the Coach may terminate this agreement at any time with fourteen (14) days written notice.
