Terms and Conditions

As an ICF member the work I do, and the people who work for me, abide by the ICF Code of Ethics: https://coachfederation.org/code-of-ethics

All coaching, supervision and mentoring work will require a written contract that sets out expectations, definitions of the work and limits of confidentiality. I also work as an associate to a number of other businesses, for that work I am not responsible for the contracts in place, however my work is still guided by the ICF Code of Ethics as linked to above.
