This document gives an overview of the basic processes and protocols underpinning coaching services being offered by Alexandra Whitehead to the Client.
Coaching is a collaborative, goal-directed process. Throughout the working relationship, the coach engages in direct, personal, and often challenging conversations. Successful coaching requires an active collaborative approach between client and coach. The coach plays the role of a facilitator of change; it is the client’s responsibility to enact change.
Coaching is not therapy and thus does not aim to treat psychological problems. The client agrees to disclose details of past or present psychological or psychiatric treatment. If such issues become salient during the coaching relationship the coach may recommend referral to an appropriate and qualified specialist.
As your executive coach, I can work with you if:
You have a genuine intent to change and you are ready to work at creating change
You are ready to receive, accept and act on feedback
You are honest and forthright in our discussions
You complete any between-sessions action learning tasks (homework)
You inform me promptly if the coaching is not working for you
Confidentiality and Ethics:
All information about the coach/client relationship and any written notes will remain confidential, except in rare circumstances where decreed by law. There are some situations in which I am legally obligated to breach confidentiality in order to protect you or others from harm. These situations are quite rare in coaching practices. If such a situation occurs in our relationship, I will make every effort to discuss it with you before taking any action.
I work within the Ethical Codes of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Your investment for a 50-minute session is outlined in your Coaching Agreement form. This is the current session rate. The rate typically increases annually for everyone by approximately $10 and you will be given 30 days’ notice, via email of the fee adjustment before it occurs.
You may pay at the time of booking, or be sent an invoice after the session, which is due within 5 days of receipt.
Please give 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment via an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you give less than 24 hours’ notice, you will incur a fee, which is outlined in your Coaching Agreement form.
Initial timeframe for coaching:
I suggest that we agree to conduct the coaching over a timeframe outlined in your Coaching Agreement form. You may vary this at any time.
Services via video:
No recording of sessions shall occur without each parties explicit consent.
Coaching and Psychological Services:
In addition to being a coach, I am also a registered psychologist in Australia. While there are some similarities between coaching and psychological services, they are very different activities and it is important that you understand the differences between them. Psychological services are a health care service. This is not true for coaching.
The focus of coaching is development and implementation of strategies to reach client-identified goals of enhanced performance and personal satisfaction. Coaching may address specific personal projects, life balance, job performance and satisfaction, or general conditions in the client’s life, business, or profession. Coaching utilizes personal strategic planning, values clarification, brainstorming, motivational counseling, and other counseling techniques.
The primary focus of psychological services are identification, diagnosis, and treatment of mental disorders. The goals of psychology include alleviating symptoms, understanding the underlying dynamics which create symptoms, changing dysfunctional behaviors which are the result of these disorders, and developing new strategies for successfully coping with the psychological challenges which we all face.
The relationship between the coach and client is specifically designed to avoid the power differentials that occur in the psychological services relationship. The client sets the agenda and the success of the enterprise depends on the client’s willingness to take risks and try new approaches. The relationship is designed to be more direct and challenging. You can count on your coach to be honest and straightforward, asking powerful questions and using challenging techniques to move you forward. You are expected to evaluate progress and when coaching is not working as you wish, you should immediately inform me so we can both take steps to correct the problem.
Because of these differences, the roles of coach and psychotherapist are often in potential conflict and I believe that, under most circumstances, it is ethically inappropriate for one to play both roles with a client, whether concurrently or sequentially. This means that if either of us recognizes that you have a problem that would benefit from psychotherapeutic intervention, I will refer you to appropriate resources. In some situations, I may insist that you initiate psychotherapy and that I have access to your psychotherapist as a condition of my continuing as your coach.
It is also important to understand that coaching is a professional relationship. While it may often feel like a close personal relationship, it is not one that can extend beyond professional boundaries both during and after our work together. Considerable experience shows that when boundaries blur, the hard-won benefits gained from the coaching relationship are endangered.
