Date Coaching Informed Consent
For the purposes of this site, Coaching will be services provided by a certified coach or relationship professional such as a counselor or psychotherapist. Coaching will be focused on guiding the subscriber through the process of completing their profile, choosing a flattering photo and proceeding with actively choosing a subscriber with whom to connect. The coach will help the subscriber to be aware of issues such as doing a background check. If desired, the coach will also help the subscriber to communicate with other subscribers who are of interest and how to proceed with a date or meeting.
Subscribers are aware that they are eligible to use one hour of coaching per month even if they have signed up for several months and have several hours that will be available to them. If they want to work faster with their coach and want more than one hour per month of coaching, they may contract directly with their coach.
Subscribers are clear that coaching is not psychotherapy. Psychotherapy is a health care service that identifies, diagnoses and treats nervous and mental disorders. Psychotherapy focuses on changing the dysfunctional behaviors and helps patients to cope with their psychological problems. Coaching is focused on the present goals and works towards achieving these goals.
Coaching will take place through the website. Every effort for privacy will be considered. Video and audio conferencing will use encrypted sites to ensure confidentiality.
Sessions will be scheduled on the website and will be at the mutual convenience of the Coach and the Subscriber. The first coaching session will be by video, subsequent sessions may be by phone or email.
Twenty-four-hour notice of cancellation is required by the subscriber or the subscriber will be “billed” for their session time.
If at any time the subscriber has a complaint, they may submit their complaint to the website at [email protected].
