In consideration of the coach’s undertaking to coach the client, it is agreed as follows:
The sole responsibility of this consulting service is life-coaching – which includes: teaching the client better past/present emotional awareness to enhance his/her current emotional intelligence; helping the client understand his/herself better and what s/he needs to do to become more emotionally and psychologically healthier – sometimes using “expressive techniques” and “action explorations”.
This service is not medical nor a replacement for long-term psychotherapy of one’s past or the foundations of one’s personality. It is meant as short-term help, and does not diagnose nor treat mental disorders; the client is not a “patient”. (If the client needs long–term psychotherapy, Prof. Seeman will refer the client to the appropriate specialty.)
Instead, this coaching partners with the client to help him/her make better present decisions, meet current goals, identify and manage feelings, “triggers” and/or “roadblocks”, to improve adaptive strategies – for better self-advice and supportive relationships – to better navigate the client’s present personal and professional concerns.
The client, not the coach, is the final “authority”; and has the responsibility for what s/he does with this service and its effects. The client does not hold the coach liable in any way, including any mishap that might occur where this service is performed. This coaching is a consensual relationship, where either party may discontinue this service – with at least one week’s notice.
All client identities are intended as confidential (except if there is unusual threat of injury to the client or another) according to the law of the state in which this service is performed.
