Coaching Disclaimer & Liability Release
All coaching services and communication, email or otherwise, delivered by Jan L. Bowen and through www.JanLBowen.com dba Strategic Solutions Services, LLC (the “Coach”) is intended as beneficial information to assist you in your life progression, not as a substitute for medical care. Jan, independently and through her company, makes no representation that the information provided is licensed health care. Coaching may augment your medical therapy, but is not meant to be a substitute for clinical counseling, treatment for suicidal ideation, clinical depression or severe psychiatric diagnoses.
As a client, it is important to understand the difference between coaching and clinical counseling or psychotherapy. While there are similarities between them, the major differences are in the goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility. Clinical counseling and psychotherapy are health care/medical services which are frequently reimbursable through health insurance policies. Coaching is not a health care of medical service. Therefore, coaching services are not reimbursable through health insurance policies.
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. Considerable experience shows that when boundaries blur, the benefits gained from the coaching relationship are endangered.
In that spirit, by purchasing coaching services from Jan, you confirm that you have read and agreed to the information contained here and that you wish to proceed.
