SCHEDULING

The coaching sessions are scheduled on dates and at times that are mutually agreed upon by Client and Coach. These sessions may be conducted in person, over the telephone or via Zoom. As the Coach, I understand that clients have busy schedules and I take pride in not keeping them waiting or keeping them longer than planned. Please be on time. Each session will end 60 minutes after it was scheduled to begin. If the Client needs to cancel or reschedule the appointment, the Client must do so 24 hours in advance; otherwise, the Client must pay a $50 cancellation charge.

 

PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS

The Client understands that the regular cost of the Program is based upon a per 60 minute session rate. There are financial as well as personal commitment benefits for registering for extended programs, and for paying in advance. Unless payment is made in advance, payments are due at each session, and may be made by cash or check.  Credit card payments accepted via PayPal in advance.
