This terms and conditions govern the contractual agreement between the coach and the client who agrees to be bound by this terms and conditions.

The Coach is a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner and/or an NLP Master Practitioner Licensed with Global NLP Training; and the Client would like to engage the Coach in the coaching services offered by the Coach, according to the terms and conditions herein.

In consideration of the mutual covenants and promises made by the parties, the Coach and the Client covenant and agree as follows:


The coaching services offered by VANCITYBRETT entail an ongoing relationship between the Coach and the Client (the “Coaching”). Though the Coaching may vary based on the Client’s needs and progression, the nature of the Coaching shall generally encompass the following:

  1. Weekly, and monthly meetings, lasting 60 minutes to 2 hours apiece, either in person at a mutually agreed upon location or over the telephone.
  2. The conversation may include personal updates, progress summaries, and any other areas that which the Client would like to discuss.
  3. Should an unforeseen event require rescheduling, the Client must notify the Coach at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled time the meeting is set to begin.
  4. Any missed session for which the Client does not notify the Coach of such a cancellation or rescheduling at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled time the meeting is set to begin shall be deemed forfeited.
  5. Any session for which the Coach and the Client are not able to meet because of an error with the Client’s equipment (e.g., Skype, telephone, WhatsApp, etc.) shall be deemed forfeited by the Client.


Each Coaching session must be paid for in full prior to the start of the said Coaching session. In the event that a Client’s payment is not fulfilled prior to the start of a scheduled Coaching session, the session shall be deemed forfeited by the Client and the fee owed to the Coach shall remain for that cancelled Coaching session.


The purchased coaching sessions are NON-REFUNDABLE. If the client decides de cancel his sessions, there will be NO-MONEY BACK. However, if the client decides to pause the sessions, he can resume the remaining sessions within ONE year from the day of sign-up.


The Client understands, acknowledges, and agrees to the following regarding the Coaching:

  1. The Coaching is designed to help mentally and physically healthy people. Any person with a serious mental or physical issue should seek the advice of a doctor or psychiatrist.
  2. This type of Coaching is not therapy – to reiterate the previous point, the Client should seek the advice of a doctor or psychiatrist if his or her condition dictates.
  3. The Coach may refer the Client to professionals if, in the Coach’s best judgment, it will be beneficial toward the Client’s success and growth.
  4. Success is heavily dependent on the Client committing to and following the program laid out by the coach. Coaching services like those contemplated in this Agreement are only effective if the Client is motivated and committed. The Client benefits best from an honest relationship with the Coach. Cooperation and an open mind are paramount to the Client’s success.
  5. The Client understands the nature of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (“NLP”) programs.
  6. The relationship between the Coach and the Client is a professional one, beyond that of a friendship, and the nature of the relationship should be maintained throughout the Coaching.
  7. If any third party should make payments the Coach on behalf of the Client, the Coach shall still act with only the Client’s best interests in mind. The party making said payments shall have no bearing on the judgment of the Coach in performing services and the Coach shall be obligated to nobody except for the Client.
  8. Should the Client choose to alter or cease any treatments, therapy, or medication, the Client should do so solely at the advice of the professional administering such treatments, therapy, or medication. Coaching is not designed to act as a replacement for such things.


The Coach represents and warrants the following with regard to the Coaching:

  1. The Coach is committed to offering the Coaching to the best of his/her knowledge and with the utmost integrity.
  2. The Coach shall offer the Coaching to the best of his/her ability, based on the information provided by the Client.
  3. The Coach shall abide by the associated Confidentiality Agreement.
  4. Should the Coach feel that coaching tools outside the scope of NLP be beneficial for use with the Client, the Coach may introduce those tools only with the approval of the Client.
  5. The Coach shall take any reasonable methods to ensure the protection of any audio, video, or written notes. Measures to protect such information may include physical locks or password protection on digital files.


This Nondisclosure Agreement states the terms and conditions that govern the contractual agreement between the coach and the Client who agrees to be bound by this Agreement.
