Coaching Procedure

  1. The coaching schedule will be arranged between Lore and the client during the intake session and communication. Lore will recommend the frequency of coaching sessions based on a professional assessment of the client’s requirements. This recommendation, or plan, is not binding and may be altered and adjusted throughout the coaching journey by mutual agreement, in accordance with the terms set out in this agreement.

  2. The number of coaching sessions will be agreed at the start of coaching between Lore and the client. Lore and the client will agree a payment plan and the full sum or the first slice will be paid before the first session.

  3. The length of each session differs but is usually 75 min. This will be agreed upon between Lore and the client at the commencement of the session.

  4. Coaching will take place between the client and their coach face-to-face (venue by mutual agreement), via Zoom (client calls coach), or by telephone (client calls coach).  Face-to-face coaching will take place at a mutually agreed venue.  Where coaching takes place at a mutually agreed venue the client will be liable for any costs incurred by Lore at that time. Unless otherwise agreed, the client is responsible for telephoning Lore at agreed times.

  5. Lore may assign the client tasks or exercises to complete between coaching sessions. There is no obligation on the client to complete these tasks, but not doing so may slow the client’s progress in gaining improved quality of life or achieving desired outcomes. Where possible, clients are requested to submit any information requested by Lore relating to assignments at the agreed upon times.

  6. The client may contact Lore by email between sessions to share a success or seek clarification on a coaching issue.  Support between sessions is seen by Lore as a necessary part of the coaching process. Lore will always advise a client in advance if the nature of a client’s contact is likely to incur an additional charge, and no such charges will be imposed without the client’s agreement.

  2. Where a client pays for a session, or sessions, in advance they must have the coaching session(s) that they have paid for within 6 months of the payment, or their fee is forfeited.

  3. The client may terminate their coaching journey at any time in writing (lore@intimate-breath.com). Any monies owed at the time of cancellation will become due immediately. Refunds on payments made against future sessions will be at the discretion of Lore.

  4. In exceptional circumstances, such as illness or unavailability due to bereavement or other commitments, inappropriate behavior by the client, actual or potential conflict of interest, or other reasons, Lore can decide to terminate the service to the client early or refuse or be unable to provide further coaching sessions to the client. In such a circumstance the client will be given reasonable notice of termination by Lore where practicable and will be refunded any advance payments made for coaching sessions not yet provided.

  5. When a client disrespects boundaries or otherwise behaves inappropriately, Lore has the right to stop the coaching session immediately without refunding the coaching fee.

  6. There may be occasions when Lore may recommend to the client that they seek an alternative service more suited to their current needs.  In this event, Lore will fully discuss the reasons for the recommendation with the client.
