Coaching is a comprehensive process that may involve different areas of your life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. Deciding how to handle these issues and how to incorporate coaching principles into those areas is exclusively your choice. No results are guaranteed, and any actions you take and any resulting consequences are solely your responsibility.
Our staff are not doctors, and life coaching is not meant to be a substitute for psychological counseling, therapy, or medical advice.
