Informed Consent 

Before we begin this transformative journey together, we want to ensure you feel informed and supported at every step. Please take a moment to carefully read through this informed consent form. We are here to address any questions or concerns you may have. Your well-being and success are our top priorities, and we are honored to be part of your path to a brighter future.

Purpose of life coaching:

Life coaching is a collaborative journey designed to empower you to create positive change and achieve personal and professional goals. It emphasizes tapping into your inner wisdom to foster self-awareness, clarity, and growth. Through structured support, we help you identify aspirations, explore values, and overcome challenges.


Process of life-coaching: 

Your life coach, along with you, will explore your values, beliefs, strengths, and challenges to help you gain insight into what matters most and what may be hindering your progress. Life coaching sessions will focus on:

  • Goal setting and clarification: We will work together to identify your personal and professional goals, ensuring they are SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound).

  • Identifying obstacles: We will explore any challenges or limiting beliefs that might be holding you back from achieving your goals.

  • Developing strategies and action plans: We will brainstorm and create actionable steps you can take to move towards your goals.

  • Improving self-awareness: Through coaching exercises and discussions, you will gain a deeper understanding of your strengths, values, and motivations.

  • Enhancing accountability: I will support you in staying accountable to your goals and action plans.

  • Problem-solving: We will work together to develop effective strategies for overcoming challenges that arise during the coaching process.

The coach will introduce and use techniques such as NLP, visualization, reframing, and anchoring to help you understand and modify thought patterns and behaviours, tailored to your individual needs and aspirations.



We ensure a safe and non-judgmental environment where all information shared during sessions remains strictly between you and your coach. 


Responsibilities as a client:

Life coaching is a collaborative process. While progress certainly occurs during our sessions together, a significant amount of growth happens outside of them too. By actively participating in this journey and staying open, being honest about your experience, and committed to your personal and professional development, you can maximize the benefits of life coaching and achieve meaningful results.


Client-Coach Relationship:

Life coaching is based on a professional relationship between you and the coach. You can schedule sessions as needed and reach out to your coach during emergencies. You coach may not be able to respond immediately, but would respond to you as soon as possible. 


Mode of sessions:

All the sessions will be online, via video calls on platforms such as Google Meet, Zoom or WhatsApp. 

Duration & Frequency of Sessions: 

Life coaching sessions typically last one hour and occur weekly. This schedule helps most individuals progress effectively. However, you can set the frequency and duration based on your specific needs by discussing it with your coach. The first session will be of 1.5 hours which will be charged accordingly.


Session Charges:

The session charges for each of your sessions are 1200 INR /hr (excluding taxes) which you'll be clearing post every session. You can make payments online through UPI on 9589238004 as well as bank transfers. We have some slots for those dealing with financial difficulties, please contact us to discuss more.

However, if you cancel with less than 6 hours notice or miss the session without informing us beforehand, a cancellation fee will be charged. We do understand there can be extenuating circumstances at times, so feel free to reach out to your coach for any specific queries or concerns.

  • What is psychotherapy?
    Therapy is like having a supportive partner on life's roller coaster. It's a safe and confidential space where you can talk openly about any thoughts, emotions, or experiences without fear of judgment. Whether you're dealing with stress, anxiety, relationships, or just feeling lost, therapy can help. It's also beneficial for working towards personal goals, making decisions, and embarking on growth journeys. Your therapist is there to support you, helping you discover your inner voice, heal wounded parts, and find peace and happiness. They will guide you through self-discovery by: Helping you understand yourself better Letting go of limiting beliefs Connecting with your inner child Acknowledging and processing your emotions Recognizing and changing maladaptive behavior patterns Transforming your inner critic into an inner coach Creating new neural pathways for better decision-making Therapy empowers you to create a more peaceful and fulfilling life. It's a journey of healing, growth, and discovering the strength and resilience within you.
  • What therapy is NOT?
    The therapist will NOT make the decisions for you but will EMPOWER you to make your own decisions by providing insightful questions that can help to weigh the alternatives Therapy is NOT just a venting space. While expressing your emotions is important, therapy also uses various tools such as REBT, Art Therapy, Movement Therapy, Mindfulness, and many more to help the process of healing & self-discovery. Therapist is NOT a friend to be called upon at any time. Sessions must be scheduled beforehand. However in case of an emergency, you can reach out to your therapist.
  • Can I switch therapists if I'm not satisfied?
    Absolutely. Your comfort and progress are our top priorities. If you feel that your current therapist isn't the right fit for you, we encourage you to discuss your concerns openly. We can assist you in finding another therapist within our team who may better meet your needs. Your well-being is paramount, and we are committed to ensuring you receive the support that best suits you.
  • How do I book sessions?

  • What happens in a therapy session?
    In therapy sessions, you'll explore your thoughts, feelings, and challenges openly. Your therapist will guide the process with insightful questions and tailored techniques. Initial Session: we prioritise understanding where you are currently in your life. We delve into your challenges, objectives, emotions, and any relevant past experiences you wish to share. By the end of this session, we collaboratively outline core objectives that will shape our therapeutic journey together.

  • How often will therapy sessions occur?
    Session frequency can vary based on individual needs and goals. However, for a consistent growth journey, we recommend scheduling one session per week. To simplify scheduling, we offer the option to set up a recurring calendar invite. This approach fosters: Consistent Growth Journey: Weekly sessions allow you to build on the insights and tools gained in each session, fostering a smoother path towards your goals. Reduced Scheduling Hassle: Setting recurring appointments eliminates the need to reschedule every week, saving you time and ensuring consistency in your therapy journey. Momentum and Positive Change: Regular sessions help you build momentum and make lasting positive changes in your life. As progress is made and goals are achieved, sessions may become less frequent, transitioning to bi-weekly or monthly appointments. The frequency of sessions is ultimately flexible and determined collaboratively between you and your therapist to ensure optimal support and progress towards your objectives.
