All coaching and educational services and communication, website, email, blog, podcast, speaking engagements or otherwise, delivered by Adept Flow (your “Coach”), as well as information set forth on this website (adeptflow.com) are meant to help you identify obstacles to achieving your goals in your thinking and in your life. However, coaching is not professional mental health care or medical care. Coaching may augment your therapy, but the work of coaching is meant to be done when major emotional and psychological wounds are already healing or healed.
To that end, by purchasing coaching services from your Coach, you confirm that you have read and agree to each statement and that you wish to proceed:
I understand that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, mental, medical or other qualified professionals and I will seek independent professional guidance for such matters.
If I am currently under the care of a mental health professional, I will inform mental health care provider that I am seeking the services of Adept Flow and will have a referral letter from my health care provider.
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 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, at present, an unregulated industry and that my Coach is not licensed by the State of New York or any other state. I also understand that for all legal purposes, the services provided by my Coach will be considered to be provided in the State of New York.
I understand that my Coach is not promising outcomes of coaching services, recommendations, or communications. Further, I understand that the Coach only guarantees to deliver the services purchases and described in the Coaching Agreement.
I understand that my Coach will protect my information as confidential unless I state otherwise in writing. If I report child, elder abuse or neglect or threaten to harm myself or someone else, I understand that necessary actions will be taken and my confidentiality agreement limited in this capacity. Furthermore, if my Coach is ordered by a court to provide information or to testify, she will do so to the extent the law requires.
I understand that I will protect the information on the services, process, fees, and the coaches information as confidential unless the Coach states otherwise in writing.
I understand that the use of technology is not always secure and I accept the risks of confidentiality in the use of email, text, phone, Skype and other technology.
I hereby release, waive, acquit and forever discharge my Coach, any agents, successors, assigns, personal representatives, executors, heirs and employees from every claim, suit action, demand or right to compensation for damages I may claim to have or that I may have arising out of acts or omissions by myself or by my Coach as a result of the advice given by my Coach or otherwise resulting from the coaching relationship contemplated by this agreement. I further declare and represent that no promise, inducement or agreement not expressed in this agreement has been made to me to sign this agreement. This agreement shall bind my heirs, executors, personal representatives, successors, assigns, and agents.
