DISCLAIMER AND WAIVER

CONDITIONAL USE

All services, including coaching, Workshop, written content, and communications via email or otherwise, are meant to help you identify the areas in your life and in your thinking that may be standing in your way, defined by your own goals. You will be assigned an Intentional Gap Year Guide®, a certified life coach (“Guide”) for this process of self-discovery if you are taking The Intentional Gap Year Workshop. For the 5-Day Path Way Workshop, a Team Guide will be assigned. Our Team Guides are required to participate in our Workshops personally and will have our Guides for help as authorities of their profession, but may not be certified life coaches. However, life coaching is not professional mental health care or medical care. If you feel psychologically stressed to the point that it is interfering with your ability to function, please have the courage to seek the help you need in the form of a professional counselor. Coaching may augment your therapy, but exploring and using coaching is meant to be done when major emotional and psychological wounds are already healing or healed.

In that spirit, by purchasing coaching services from the Company, you confirm that you have read and agreed to each statement and that you wish to proceed:

  • I understand that the coaching services I will be receiving from the Company are not offered as a substitute for professional mental health care or medical care and are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any mental health or medical conditions. I also understand that my Guide or assigned Team Guide is not acting as a mental health counselor or a medical professional.
  • I understand that coaching is, at present, an unregulated industry and that any internationally recognized regulator does not license my Guide. I also understand that for all legal purposes, the services provided by my Guide will be considered to be provided from any remote location worldwide or otherwise in the United States.
  • I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my well-being during my participation in this Workshop(s) and the personal coaching sessions with my Guide or Team Guide, and subsequently, including my choices and decisions.
  • I understand that coaching is not a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment, and I will not use it in place of any form of therapy.
  • I understand that all comments and ideas offered by my Guide or Team Guide are solely to aid me in achieving my defined goals. I can give my informed consent, and hereby give such consent to my Guide to assist me in achieving such goals and aims.
  • I understand that to the extent our work together involves education, career or business, my Guide is not promising outcomes included but not limited to my increased profitability and or education or business success, as a Gap Year Girl participant.
