Description of Coaching

As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction or any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the Coach.

If Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, it is recommended that the Client promptly inform the mental health care provider of the nature and extent of the coaching relationship agreed upon by the Client and the Coach.

3.1 The Coach agrees to keep all conversations and information with the Client private and confidential, as per UAE law.
3.2 No personal information will be shared with anyone without the Client’s express permission. Where two or more persons are known to one another receiving coaching, the coach maintains the highest level of confidentiality to each individual concerned and will act with impartiality, always seeking to support the Client.

Information will only be shared with contacts and associates (not limited to but including agents and managers) if this is expressly agreed with all parties, including the coachee, usually at the commencement of coaching, regardless of who is funding the coaching.
