Coaching Terms and Conditions
In the spirit of good practice, when you are purchasing coaching services from BuyGal Inspiration (a division of BusyGal, LLC) we ask you to confirm that you have read and agreed to each statement below and that you wish to proceed.
All coaching services and communication, email or otherwise, delivered Felicia M. Lopes, as well as information on this website (busygalinspiration.com) are meant to help you identify the areas in your life and in your thinking that may be preventing you from experiencing greater well-being and moving forward. Coaching is not a substitute for professional mental health care or medical care. Coaching is meant to be done when major emotional and psychological wounds are already healing or healed.
The term ‘coaching’ as here in used covers life coaching, personal coaching, executive coaching and business coaching for clients.
Felicia is continually striving to ensure the standard of service she provides to her clients remains excellent. At the end of the coaching process, or series of coaching sessions, the client will be asked to complete a feedback form
The coaching schedule will be arranged between Felicia and the client and can be booked up to 2 months in advance. Felicia will recommend the frequency of coaching sessions based on a professional assessment of the client’s requirements. This recommendation, or plan, is not binding and may be altered and adjusted throughout the coaching journey by mutual agreement, in accordance with the terms set out in this agreement.
The number and frequency of coaching session will be agreed upon at the start of coaching between Felicia and the client, and confirmed by Felicia by email or written correspondence. Where no specific number is agreed, sessions will be provided on a session by session basis.
In return for the fees payable by the client (or by a third party on their behalf), Felicia agrees to provide the service as described below and in accordance with the terms and conditions set out below. The client agrees to pay fees for the service on the terms and conditions set out below (in situations where a third party pays the fees, the third party counts as an agent acting on behalf of the client).
The date that the first coaching session takes place shall be deemed to be the start date for the service. Where any client is unhappy with any of the terms and conditions they can contact Felicia directly to discuss any concerns and see if they can be resolved before the first coaching session. Participation by any individual in the first coaching session constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions.
FORMAT OF SESSIONS
Face to face (venue by mutual agreement), via Skype or Zoom or Google Hangouts (client calls coach); telephone coaching sessions (client calls coach); or other format where such is agreed. Unless otherwise agreed, for Skype or Zoom or Google Hangouts and telephone sessions the client is responsible for telephoning Felicia at agreed times. Felicia is responsible for ensuring that she is available for consultation at agreed times. The length of each session is as agreed between Felicia and the client before coaching sessions commence.
In accordance with Felicia’s current per session fee or fee for a program of sessions, or any other such fee as shall be agreed and notified to the client, Felicia will confirm the fees in writing, usually by email, unless this is impractical. The number of sessions for which payment is required in advance will be agreed before coaching sessions commence.
Felicia may agree to provide additional coaching sessions after completion of the initial agreed session(s). These terms and conditions will apply to any additional sessions so provided and the Per Session Fee will remain the same as originally agreed except where Felicia notifies the client in writing by letter or e-mail of a change to the Fee or to any other term or condition in accordance with the section in these terms and conditions headed “Variation of Terms and Conditions”.
DATES AND TIMES OF SESSIONS
The date and time of the first session and any subsequent session will be agreed between Felicia and the client by phone or email and confirmed by Felicia by email or letter.
Sessions can only be rearranged in accordance with the section in these terms and conditions headed “Rearranging Sessions”.
Fees can be paid online by debit or credit card using the Paypal payments systems, by standing order, by bank transfer, or by check made out to BusyGal, LLC & sent to 17304 Preston Road, Suite 800, Dallas, TX 75252 – earmarked “Coaching-BusyGal Inspiration”. Where receipts are requested by the client, they will be sent by e-mail unless otherwise requested.
Fees are payable in advance of each coaching session unless otherwise agreed. Business Coaching may allow for payment on receipt of invoice. Where payment has not been received by Felicia in advance of a coaching session, Felicia is not obliged to provide the session.
Where payment is required on receipt of invoice rather than in advance, a charge may be levied for late payment.
Felicia may assign the client tasks or exercises to complete between coaching sessions. There is no obligation on the client to complete these items of ‘homework’, but not doing so may slow the client’s progress in gaining improved quality of life or achieving desired business or personal outcomes.
The client may contact Felicia by phone or e-mail between sessions to seek clarification regarding anything arising from a coaching session or for administrative purposes (e.g. where a client needs to rearrange a coaching session or make a payment). Additional coaching can also be provided between sessions but there will be an additional charge for this. Felicia will always advise a client in advance if the nature of a client’s contact is likely to incur an additional charge and no such charges will be imposed without the client’s agreement.
If a client needs to rearrange a coaching session, they should provide at least 48 hours notice. No refunds will be given to clients for unused coaching sessions unless 48 hours notice has been given. In exceptional circumstances Felicia may need to rearrange a coaching session. In those instances she will also give the client 48 hours notice where practical.
Where a client pays for a session or sessions in advance they must have the coaching session(s) that they have paid for within 6 months of the payment or their fee is forfeited.
Personal information or business information supplied by clients in coaching sessions will be treated as confidential. It will not be disclosed to a third party without the client’s prior permission, save where required by law or where action might be necessary to prevent harm to the client or someone else.
In exceptional circumstances, such as illness or unavailability due to bereavement or other commitments, inappropriate behavior by the client, actual or potential conflict of interest, or other reasons, Felicia can decide to terminate the service to the client early or refuse or be unable to provide further coaching sessions to the client. In such a circumstance the client will be given reasonable notice of termination by Felicia where practicable and will be refunded any advance payments made for coaching sessions not yet provided.
Felicia will seek to enable the client to improve their quality of life or level of business success and to achieve their desired outcomes. Remarkable results can be achieved where clients follow a clear plan in a committed way. However, the client has sole responsibility for taking important decisions in their life or business. Felicia has no liability for any loss incurred by any client, whether financial or otherwise, following commencement of coaching sessions, or for any perceived failure by the client, whether justified or otherwise, to achieve a material improvement in quality of life or business or to achieve their desired outcomes or goals.
VARIATION OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Where an Initial Number of Sessions is agreed, any changes to these terms and conditions intended to take effect prior to the conclusion of those Initial Number of Sessions will only have effect if agreed to by both Felicia and the client and confirmed by Felicia in writing by email or letter. In other cases, Felicia may change any of these terms or conditions including the Per Session Fee by giving the client one week’s notice in writing by letter or e-mail of the change(s). If following receipt of such notification of change, the client no longer wishes to proceed with further coaching sessions, they may withdraw from the service immediately by giving notice in writing by email or letter and they will then be entitled to a full refund of any fees paid in advance for coaching sessions not yet provided. Such notice will be effective on receipt by Felicia.
This contract is governed by the law of the state of Texas in the USA whose courts have exclusive jurisdiction in relation to any dispute, disagreement, proceedings or legal claim of any nature relating to the service provided or the contract.
Feedback about the service is welcomed and can be given during a coaching session or by writing to Felicia M. Lopes, 17304 Preston Road, Suite 800, Dallas, TX 75252.
