The following is a copy of my Parent Coaching Agreement. During the online intake process, new clients are asked to indicate that they have read, understood, and agree with its terms. Please contact me if you have any questions.
The partnership between COACH and CLIENT is at the heart of what makes parent coaching successful. The COACH (Marilyn Price-Mitchell, PhD, LLC) and CLIENT agree to create a working relationship that first and foremost supports the CLIENT, the CLIENT’S family, and the healthy development of the CLIENT’s children.
The CLIENT agrees to contribute to the success of the coaching relationship by:
The CLIENT gives the COACH permission to:
The CLIENT agrees to the following policies and procedures:
The CLIENT understands that the COACH is a developmental psychologist (PhD), author, speaker, writer, and researcher in the field of positive youth development – not a licensed therapist. Please review the differences between coaching and therapy, and other frequently asked questions. While all information shared by CLIENT in online forms, texts, emails, and sessions is maintained in a strict, confidential manner, the COACH may occasionally use anonymous stories from her coaching practice as part of her research, or to illustrate for educational purposes, examples of family challenges that are helped through a strengths-based approach to child and adolescent development. Through this agreement, the CLIENT gives the COACH permission to use stories shared by the CLIENT in a way that does not identify the CLIENT or the CLIENT’s family.
The CLIENT and COACH agree that either can terminate this coaching agreement at any time and for any reason. If the COACH terminates the relationship, any prepaid coaching sessions will be refunded. If the CLIENT terminates the relationship, the COACH will make a partial refund of prepaid sessions, based on an individual session price. For example, if the CLIENT has paid for 5 sessions at a 10% discount and used only 3 sessions of a package, the 10% discount will be forfeited for the 3 used sessions. The remainder of the package will be refunded.
In between coaching sessions, the COACH will respond to brief emails if extra support is needed or questions arise.
