Sample coaching agreement

We are about to embark on a life coaching process. Life coaching is forward moving, helping you to set meaningful goals and make regular progress towards achievement of those goals. Life coaching is not a substitute for counselling or other services. It’s about getting the very best out of you and enabling you to make decisions that will improve your life.

Across the next few months, we will share coaching sessions, with the first session on [DATE].

  • Give as much notice as possible and at least 48 hours, if I need to reschedule a coaching session.
  • Pay the agreed fees due to my coach, in full and on time.
  • Accept that I am absolutely responsible for my own actions and that I initiate this coaching relationship on this basis.
  • Agree that I will raise with you, my coach, anything that I am unhappy about in our coaching relationship.

I, Lucy, agree and demonstrate my commitment to you and our coaching relationship by:

  • Being available for each coaching session on time and fully prepared.
  • Giving you as much notice as possible if, for any reason, I need to reschedule a coaching session.
  • Maintaining 100% confidentiality with you unless required by law to disclose information you have given me.
  • Being totally focussed on your needs and committed to empowering you to take the steps you need to achieve your ambitions and goals.
  • Referring you to another source of support if at any time we mutually agree that life coaching is not the most appropriate way forward for you at this time in your life. We will work together to determine whether termination of sessions and/or referral a GP/counsellor or other source of support is required.
  • Raising with you if at any time I identify that you are not fully committed to your goals and agreed actions so that we can determine the most appropriate course of action.
  • I agree to coach you to the best of my ability, with 100% of my energy and commitment.
