Client Bill of Rights

 

Please note: Before coaching begins you will be asked to sign an electronic agreement agreeing to the following terms and conditions.

CLIENT BILL OF RIGHTS

THE STATE OF TEXAS HAS NOT ADOPTED ANY SPECIFIC EDUCATIONAL CURRICULUM OR TRAINING STANDARDS FOR THE PRACTICE OF COACHING.  THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.

Under Texas Law, a personal coach may not provide a medical diagnosis or recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments.  If a client desires a medical or physical diagnosis or any other type of treatment from a practitioner, the client may, and is encouraged to, seek such services for their medical professional at any time.

A client has a right to refuse coaching services at any time.   A client has a right to be free of physical, verbal or sexual abuse.  A client has a right to know the expected duration¹ of treatment, and may assert any right without retaliation.

Client confidentiality is required by Texas State Law, and Micki Allen Coaching and Education keeps to the highest standards in this regard. Client records are only handled Micki Allen. Your personal information may not be released to any outside agency or individual, unless you have given written permission. However, there are certain limits to confidentiality, and as a result Micki Allen Coaching and Education may be required to release information to appropriate governmental authorities under certain circumstances, including a legal require for lease of information because of a subpoena or legal investigation, or when Micki Allen receives information that suggests possible self-harm by the client or harm to others.

 


OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Fees and Billing.  The standard (base) fee for individual sessions at Micki Allen Coaching and Education is $125.00 per session hour. From time to time special package pricing may be offered.  Sessions held away from the office are established on a case by case basis and may incur addition travel fess no less than $25.  Clients must give two days’ notice (no less than 48 hours before the scheduled appointment) for changing appointments or canceling appointments, or they will be charged the standard fee of $125 for the appointment missed.

Clients have the right to reasonable notice of changes in services or charges. You have the right to freely seek services elsewhere at any time.  You have the right to coordinate transfer of services in the case of change of service provider.  You always have the right to refuse services or treatment unless otherwise provided by law.  If you decide to discontinue service, you may receive a pro-rated refund of any non-used funds based on the number of sessions at standard cost of $125 per session. You may assert any client’s rights listed here without fear of retaliation.

Insurance.  Personal coaching services are not typically covered by insurance. I suggest you think of your services as something that you will pay for personally, that will both protect your privacy and help you value the work you are doing even more highly.

Theoretical Approach.  Micki Allen utilizes advanced coaching techniques and instruction to help clients make changes consciously (and in the case of hypnosis work, subconsciously).

¹Assessment and Number of Sessions:  You have the right to view your client file, including any notes or assessments made (additional fees may occur if taken outside of your regular scheduled time with the hypnotist).  It is difficult to predict the number of sessions you will require to resolve your issue; typically, work is done in five to six sessions for single issues, however if you have more than one issue, more sessions will be needed and will incur extra costs.

You have the right to refuse services at any time.  In the event your services are terminated by you or your coach, you have the right to coordinate transfer of services or request a pro-rated refund based on the standard rate of $125 per session left in your purchased service package.

Service Outcomes are Not Guaranteed. Success from any kind of coaching, educational, medical, or alternative wellness process cannot be guaranteed. Doctor’s cannot guarantee you will become well. Teachers cannot guarantee you will learn. Likewise, coaches cannot guarantee you will achieve your desired goal. In order for you to succeed, you need to follow the instructions given, techniques recommended, and complete assignments that are given.  Finally, you must put your own effort into the outcome you desire.

Thank you for considering Micki Allen Coaching and Education.
