Parent/Guardian Relationship Coaching Agreement

The Relationship Doctor


Professional relationship coaching provides clients with deeper levels of expertise, than they could efficiently access on their own, for working on relational patterns. This expert advice and guidance can help clients move into extraordinary levels of health in their connections with self, others, and reality.  Because relational health translates to success in almost every area of life, the benefits of this process for the client can include:  deepened awareness, an expanded pallet of interpersonal and intrapersonal (internal) response options, and enhanced quality life. 


In each meeting the client chooses the focus of the conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations, ideas, concepts, questions and suggestions.  This interaction can boost clarity and accelerate the client’s progress toward interpersonal and intrapersonal vibrancy.   These meetings will also include dialogue on the subject of where the client is now and effective strategies they could employ to get where they want to be in the future.


Results are a matter of the client’s intentions, choices and actions, encouraged by the coach’s efforts.   The coach may give specific advice or suggestions; however, it is ultimately the client’s responsibility for making his/her own decisions and determining the best course of action.


Relationship coaching is not psychotherapy or counseling.  Psychotherapy and counseling are professional services that aim to diagnose and treat psychopathology (clinical problems in an individual’s mental, emotional, or behavioral functioning).  This is not part of the coaching relationship.  In the event that you feel the client needs professional counseling or psychotherapy, it is your responsibility to seek a licensed mental health professional.



What you can expect from me:

  • A commitment to maintaining the ICF high standard of coaching and training ethics.
  • A genuine appreciation for the privilege and responsibility you have entrusted me with as your child's relationship coach. 
  • A commitment to continue to advise and support them as they further their relational objectives in their life.
  • A resource for information, with a special focus on personality issues and relational health, to be used to their best advantage in their life.
  • Challenges that will stretch them.


What I expect from you:

  • That you will understand that you and your child set the agenda for our time based on your and their objectives.
  • That you realize that your child is responsible for their own results. 
  • That you understand that your child needs to  initiate and take action when he/she wants results, and that I will be encouraging him/her to experiment with new ways of being in the world, even if it means making some useful mistakes, as part of the learning process necessary for growth.
  • That you understand that coaching is not therapy and that you will not substitute it for psychotherapy if that is what your child needs.
  • That you are honest with yourself and with me.
  • That you will let me know right away if you believe our coaching arrangement is not working as desired.
