Coaching begins with an initial assessment that is free of charge. Once the coaching relationship commences, it is recommended that it continue for a minimum of three months. Coaching is not advice, therapy, or counseling. The services provided by the coach are in-person or via phone or Skype, as designed jointly with the client. All sessions are strictly confidential. The client and coach agree to provide each other with fourteen-day notice in advance of changing over to as-needed relationship.
