The relationship, as well as all information (documented or verbal) that the Client shares with Perspective 7 as part of this relationship, is bound by the principles of confidentiality set forth in the ICF Code of Ethics and any other Confidentiality code. However, the Perspective 7-Client relationship is not considered a legally confidential relationship (like the medical and legal professions) and thus communications are not subject to the protection of any legally recognised privilege.

Perspective 7 will not disclose the Client’s name as a reference without the Client’s consent.
Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) was in Perspective 7’s possession prior to its being furnished by the Client; (b) is generally known to the public or in the Client’s industry; (c) is obtained by Perspective 7 from a third party, without breach of any obligation to the Client; (d) is independently developed by Perspective 7 without use of or reference to the Client’s confidential information; or (e) Perspective 7 is required by statute, lawfully issued subpoena, or by court order to disclose; (f) is disclosed to Perspective 7 and as a result of such disclosure the Perspective 7 reasonably believes there to be an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to the Client or others; and (g) involves illegal activity.

B. Additional Coaching Terms & Conditions
Description of Coaching
Coaching is partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximise personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.
A. Coach agrees to maintain the ethics and standards of behaviour established by the International Coach Federation “(ICF)” (Coachfederation.org/ethics). It is recommended that the Client review the ICF Code of Ethics and the applicable standards of behaviour.
B. Client is solely responsible for creating and implementing their own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results arising out of or resulting from the coaching relationship and their coaching sessions with the Coach. As such, the Client agrees that the Coach is not and will not be liable or responsible for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the Coach. Client understands coaching is not therapy and does not substitute for therapy if needed, and does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.
C. Client further acknowledges that they may terminate or discontinue the coaching relationship at any time.
D. Client acknowledges that coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of their life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. The Client agrees that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate coaching principles into those areas and implementing choices is exclusively the Client’s responsibility.
E. Client acknowledges that coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association and that coaching is not to be used as a substitute for counselling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, substance abuse treatment, or other professional advice by legal, medical or other qualified professionals and that it is the Client’s exclusive responsibility to seek such independent professional guidance as needed. If Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, it is recommended that the Client promptly inform the mental health care provider of the nature and extent of the coaching relationship agreed upon by the Client and the Coach.
F. The Client understands that in order to enhance the coaching relationship, the Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and to create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.
G. The Client understands that the Coach is engaged as an independent contractor. The Coach acts at all times as an independent contractor and has no authority to bind or represent any other party in any way. No other party shall be held liable by the Client for any act, matter or thing done or to be done by the Coach throughout the duration of the coaching period.
Either the Client or the Coach may terminate the Agreement at any time with 2 weeks’ written notice. The Client agrees to compensate the Coach for all coaching services rendered through to and including the effective date of termination of the coaching relationship.
Conditions for the Coach terminating the Agreement before the end of the agreed upon period may include:
- Client failure to perform or observe any of the terms of the Agreement, and failure to remedy such breaches within five (5) working days of a notice from the Coach that such a failure has occurred;
- Client failure to perform any term of the Agreement which cannot be remedied.
- An insolvency event that occurs in relation to the Client.
The Client may terminate the Agreement if either of the matters raised in paragraphs a) or b) are applicable to the Coach. The Coach or Client may terminate the Agreement by mutual agreement (exit clause).
Payment upon termination
If the Agreement is validly terminated prior to the end of the agreed upon term of the coaching program, then the Client must immediately pay the Coach the balance (if any) of fees for the unexpired period of Coaching, together with any other monies owed under the Agreement. At the agreed upon date of termination, the Coach shall immediately cease to be liable to the Client with respect to the coaching program.
If the Client fails to pay the amounts owing under the terms of the paragraph above, an additional 10% annual interest shall be due on amounts outstanding. This interest will be calculated on and from the date on which the principal amount was due to the Coach.
This reflects a complete understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter. The Agreement supersedes all prior written and oral representations. The Agreement may not be amended, altered or supplemented except in writing signed by both the Coach and the Client.
If any provision of the Agreement signed shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable. If the Court finds that any provision of the Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision it would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.
The failure of either party to enforce any provision of the signed Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver or limitation of that party’s right to subsequently enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of the Agreement.
The Agreements signed shall be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective successors and permissible assigns.
