Coaching Agreement

ART OF FEEDING ME COACHING AGREEMENT

This Agreement is made today between Maria Theron of Art of Feeding Me of London, United Kingdom, and the person entering into a coaching agreement as detailed in your coaching invoice [the Client].

The Program in which you are about to enroll in will include two 50-minute coaching sessions each month for six months (twelve sessions), unless otherwise stated on your invoice. Each session will include a discussion of your progress, recommendations, and a full set of notes.

Scheduling & Cancellation

As your Coach, I understand that you have a busy schedule. I take pride in not keeping any of my clients waiting or keeping them longer than planned. Please ensure you are ready for each session on time.

Each session will end 50 minutes after it is scheduled to begin. If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, you must do so at least 24 hours in advance, failing which you will forfeit that appointment and the opportunity to reschedule it.

This program will expire if all sessions have not been completed two months after the scheduled completion date.

Payments & Refunds

The program cost is detailed in your invoice.

In the event of your absence or withdrawal for any reason whatsoever, you will remain responsible for the pro rata share of the program that has been delivered, plus a cancelation fee of $100 or ten percent of the total invoice value, whichever figure is less.

Maria Theron reserves the right to cancel the coaching program if at any point she feels it is not advantageous for the program to continue. Should this occur, you will not be liable for coaching services still to be provided in terms of this agreement, and any prepayments you have made will be refunded accordingly (less bank charges).

If the Client is under the care of a health care professional or currently uses prescription medications, the Client should discuss any dietary changes or potential dietary supplements use with his or her doctor and should not under any circumstances discontinue any prescription medications without first consulting his or her doctor.

or supplements, and the risks inherent in making lifestyle changes. The Client releases the Coach from any and all liability, damages, causes of action, allegations, suits, sums of money, claims and demands whatsoever, in law or equity, which the Client ever had, now has or will have in the future against the Coach, arising from the Client’s past or future participation in, or otherwise with respect to, the Program, unless arising from the gross negligence of the Coach.

Confidentiality

If the dispute is not resolved, then the two parties agree to resolve the dispute through binding arbitration before a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, 12 Bloomsbury Square, London, WC1A 2LP, UK. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Such arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no award of consequential or other damages, unless specifically set forth herein, may be granted to the Client.

This agreement shall be construed according to the laws of the United Kingdom. Should any provision of this Agreement is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of the Agreement shall be severed and remain in full force.
