16-18yo Coaching Agreement

Coaching Agreement for 16-18’s – to be read and signed by both parent/guardian and client:

  1. I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my teen’s physical, mental and emotional well-being.  I am aware that I can choose to discontinue sessions coaching at any time.

  2. I understand that “coaching” is a professional relationship that is designed to facilitate the creation/development of my teen’s emotional understanding and self-regulation.

  3. I understand that emotion coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve looking at all areas of my teen’s life, including home/family, health, spiritual, relationships, education and recreation.

  4. I understand that emotion coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental health disorders as defined by the British Psychological Society and that emotion coaching is not a substitute for counselling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care or substance abuse treatment and I will not use it in place of any form of diagnosis, treatment or therapy for my teen.

  5. I understand that coaching is a confidential space for my teen and information shared will only be disclosed to me with the express consent of my teen.

  6. I confirm that if my teen is currently in counselling, therapy or under the care of a mental health professional, that I have consulted with them regarding the advisability of working with a coach and that this person is aware of my decision to proceed with the coaching relationship. Please note, it is in the best interest of your child to inform their coach of other professional involvement.

  7. I understand that information will be held as confidential unless agreed otherwise, in writing, except as required by law.

  8. I understand that it is my responsibility, as the client’s parent/guardian, to inform MITOS in writing in the event that I wish to end my coaching relationship. At this point MITOS will remove my personal contact information from their records and the onus will be on me to resume contact should the need arise.

  9. I am aware of the MITOS Safeguarding and Privacy Policies, including data protection.
