Confidentiality Statement

Our Life-Coach/Client relationship, as well as all information (documented or verbal) that you share with me as part of this relationship, is bound by the principles of confidentiality set by standard practices of professional ethics. However, please be aware that our Life-Coach/Client relationship is not considered a legally confidential relationship (like the medical and legal professions) and thus communications are not subject to the protection of any legally recognized privilege. As your Life-Coach I agree not to disclose any information pertaining to our Life-Coach/Client relationship without your written consent. I will not disclose your name as a reference without your consent.

Confidential information does not include information that: (a) was in my possession prior to its being furnished by you; (b) is generally known to the public or in your industry; (c) is obtained by me from a third party, without breach of any obligation to you; (d) is independently developed by me without use of or reference to your confidential information; or (e) as your Life-Coach required by statute, lawfully issued subpoena, or by court order to disclose; (f) is disclosed to me and as a result of such disclosure I reasonably believe there to be an imminent or likely risk of danger or harm to you or others, or reasonable suspicion that a child or elder is currently being abused; and (g) involves illegal activity.

As your Life-Coach, I also acknowledge my continuing obligation to raise any confidentiality questions or concerns with you in a timely manner.

Please, contact me if you have any questions on security of your emails or confidentiality.
