Do I need a Coaching Agreement?

A Coaching Agreement is a legally binding document for the provision of professional coaching services to individuals and/or companies.

This agreement can be tailored for 1-to-1 coaching with an individual, or for coaching services to a company in the form of 1-to-1 or group coaching sessions with the company’s employees.

This agreement assumes that the coach will be providing their services through a limited company (which we advise) and that the coach will maintain the ethics and standards of behaviour established by the International Coaching Federation (ICF), an internationally recognised standard for coaching. The ICF coaching standards and the ICF Code of Ethics can be accessed at http://www.coachfederation.org/ethics.

This Coaching Agreement contains provisions regarding:

  • the duration of the Coaching Engagement by setting out clear start and end dates, the number of sessions that are to be held, as well as the frequency and duration of these sessions;
  • the fee for the coaching services and the frequency of the payments;
  • setting out the relationship between the parties;
  • providing policies for cancellations and refunds
  • providing the ability to terminate the Coaching Engagement; and
  • protecting the client’s confidential information.
