The Coach will only release information about our work to others with your written permission or if I am required to do so by a court order. While I am not practicing counseling or psychotherapy, my education, license and certification as a health and wellness coach may indicate situations in which I am legally obligated by Federal and State laws to breach your confidentiality in order to protect others from harm, including the following:
(1) If I have information that indicates that a child, elderly or disabled person is being abused, I must report that to the appropriate state agency; and;
(2) If a client is an imminent risk to him/herself or makes threats of imminent violence against another person, I am required to take protective actions.
These situations rarely occur in coaching practices, but if such a situation does occur, I will make every effort to discuss it with you before taking any action.
Some sessions are conducted via telephone or the internet and some sessions depending of program will be conducted with other coaching clients. You, The Client, agree to maintain the confidentiality of all information communicated to you by other coaching clients and by your Coach. It is understandable that progress is often enhanced when clients discuss their coaching relationship with trusted colleagues and friends. You can have these discussions with trusted colleagues and friends, but you agree not to share any information which would allow others in the group to be identified.
The Client waives any action legal or otherwise against The Coach and holds The Coach harmless for any interception of Client information resulting from the use of agreed-upon, non-encrypted technology such as a mobile phone.
Although health and wellness coaching utilize knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral change, and interactive counseling techniques as well as generalized nutrition, health, and physical fitness, there are major differences in the goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility that that of physicians, other health practitioners, nutritionist, and registered dietitians. Serenity Wellness does not replace licensed medical support and should be a complement to traditional medicine and not a replacement. Serenity Wellness approaches may include but are not limited holistic approaches to health and wellness. Complementary and alternative modalities are not used to treat, diagnose, or cure any illness. The alternative modalities I utilize to support optimal wellness do not offer any guarantee of success results are individualistic and dependent on The Client. It is understood and agreed to by The Client and The Coach that if either of us recognizes that you, The Client, have a problem that would benefit from other healthcare or mental health professional services, I, The Coach, may refer you to appropriate resources in addition to or in lieu of Coaching.
Coaching services, at present, are not reimbursable through health insurance policies.
