Erica Ballard Health Program Agreement

Welcome! During the coming months, you will learn ways to help yourself achieve a healthier diet and lifestyle. Please read the following. If anything is unclear, please ask.      

This Agreement is made today between Erica Ballard, the coach of the program and you, the Client. The Program in which you are about to enroll in will include all of the following:

  • Two sessions per month that last approximately 50 minutes
  • Goal setting at each session and space to understand current behaviors and patterns and to determine the obstacles that are obstructing your health goals
  • Tailored resources, tools, and gifts, which could include recipes, food journals, meditation guides, and more

SCHEDULING

As your Coach, I understand that my clients have busy schedules, and I take pride in not keeping them waiting or keeping them longer than planned. Each session will end 60 minutes after it was scheduled to begin. Please be on time. If the Client is late to the appointment, the session will not be extended. If the Client needs to cancel or reschedule the appointment, the Client can reschedule at no cost. However, the cancellation must occur 24 hours in advance; otherwise, the Client will forfeit that appointment and will not have an opportunity to reschedule it.

PAYMENTS AND REFUNDS

The Client agrees to a minimum of three months of coaching at $650 per month for a total of $1,950. Once three months of coaching is complete, the Client will move to month-to-month coaching at a retainer cost of $650 per month.

Please note that:

  • If the Client selects to pay the first three months of the program in-full, the full cost of the program will be deducted by 10%.
  • The first month’s payment (of $650) is due 24 hours prior to the first session.
  • This payment is for two health coaching session each month.
  • Clients are to complete the first six sessions within three-months of the start of the program to maximize results.
  • To cancel the month-to-month retainer, the Client must provide a minimum of 72 hour-notice before the month’s last session.

The Client will pay through MoonClerk and grants Erica Ballard the authority to charge the card. The Client is responsible for full payment of the program. No refunds will be issued.

COMMUNICATION BETWEEN SESSIONS

The Coach will communicate with the Client between sessions via email. Clients can reasonably communicate with the Health Coach between sessions via  email. The Coach will response to emails within 72 hours, unless she is out of office or otherwise noted. If the Client does not adhere to the communication policy, the Coach reserves the right to cancel the program.

DISCLAIMERS

The Client understands that the role of the Health Coach is not to prescribe or assess micro- and macronutrient levels; provide health care, medical or nutrition therapy services; or to diagnose, treat or cure any disease, condition or other physical or mental ailment of the human body. Rather, the Coach is a mentor and guide who has been trained in holistic health coaching to help clients reach their own health goals by helping clients devise and implement positive, sustainable lifestyle changes. The Client understands that the Coach is not acting in the capacity of a doctor, licensed dietician-nutritionist, psychologist or other licensed or registered professional, and that any advice given by the Coach is not meant to take the place of advice by these professionals. If the Client is under the care of a healthcare professional or currently uses prescription medications, the Client should discuss any dietary changes or potential dietary supplements use with his or her doctor and should not discontinue any prescription medications without first consulting his or her doctor. 

The Client has chosen to work with the Coach and understands that the information received should not be seen as medical or nursing advice and is not meant to take the place of seeing licensed health professionals.

PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY AND RELEASE OF HEALTH CARE RELATED CLAIMS

The Client releases the Coach from any and all liability, damages, causes of action, allegations, suits, sums of money, claims and demands whatsoever, in law or equity, which the Client ever had, now has or will have in the future against the Coach, arising from the Client’s past or future participation in, or otherwise with respect to, the Program, unless arising from the gross negligence of the Coach.
