Welcome and thank you for your interest in Coaching with Troy Nickell and Mindful Wellness. This document constitutes a contract between us.
I understand that I am working with Troy Nickell for Professional Coaching at the agreed upon fee. This fee is paid in
advance either by Cash, Check, digital transfer or Credit Card. Services must be paid in advance, or they cannot be
provided. Your payment is your contract for the agreed upon sessions. Refunds are not offered on prepaid sessions
except under extenuating circumstances. We will have standing scheduled times each week by telephone or meeting in
person, as deemed most useful. You are free to message with Troy between sessions. Please remember that you must
give 24 hours prior notice if you need to cancel or change the time of an appointment, otherwise you will be charged for
the session in full. I will make reasonable efforts to reschedule sessions, which are cancelled in a timely manner.
It is important to understand that Coaching is a professional relationship. While it may feel at times like a close personal
relationship, it is not one that can extend beyond professional boundaries, either during or after our work together.
Considerable experience shows that when boundaries blur, the hard-won benefits gained from the coaching relationship
Professional coaching is distinctly different than counseling, psychotherapy, and psychoanalysis. Coaching is often more
interactive and action-oriented than traditional therapy. And while coaching deepens your self-learning and self-
acceptance in the same way that therapy might, at the same time it also gives you the tools, support, and direction to
“move on” into new possibilities, relationships, and behaviors. It is important that everyone seeks the appropriate kind
of support for the issues they face, and in some cases, a client may work with both a coach and a therapist. Since
Professional Coaching does not constitute medical consultation or treatment, any healthcare insurance does not apply.
These fees may be considered deductible business expenses.
All information will be held as confidential unless you request otherwise in writing. As a Licensed Psychotherapist, there
are some situations in which I may be legally obligated to breach your confidentiality in order to protect client and/or
others from harm, including (1) if I have information that indicates a child or elderly or disabled person is being abused; I
must report that to the appropriate state agency and (2) if client is an imminent risk to him/herself or makes threats of
imminent violence against another person, I am required to take protective actions. These situations rarely occur in
coaching practices, but if such a situation does occur; I will make every effort to discuss it with you before taking any
action. Once a coaching client of mine, there is in no way we can engage in Psychotherapy in the event mental health
concerns are discovered. If that were to occur, you would be given referrals to appropriate professional services.
By signing below, I acknowledge that I have read, understood, and agree to the terms outlined above.
