COACHING Agreement

This is an agreement between …………….. (the Coachee)
and Julius Weinberg (the Coach) ,
and relates to their entering a Coaching relationship

The purpose of the Coaching relationship is to help the Coachee establish career and personal goals (short and/or long term), to support them in developing/acquiring the skills and behaviours which enable achievement of those goals, to
enable the Coachee to be more engaged in planning and achieving their desired goals, to provide a safe place for discussion where the Coachee can test out ideas, to support the Coachee in broadening their understanding of options available and tools for attaining their goals, to help the Coachee appreciate their strengths and weaknesses and how to optimise their performance, to help the Coachee understand and appreciate a broader range of perspectives.

This list is indicative rather than exhaustive and the coachee may wish to co concentrate on a subset of issues, or something else.

An important additional purpose is to have rich, enjoyable conversations which we both benefit from.

The Coaching relationship is confidential, any information kept by the Coach will be in accordance with the requirements of the data protection act. Minimal information will be stored and will be available for inspection by the Coachee.
Julius does not keep extensive notes on what has been said in meetings as he does not think this helps the process or relationship. The Coachee guides the discussion rather than notes.
If the Coach is concerned that the Coachee may harm themselves, others, or break the law, he may engage with others to protect. The Coach will normally inform the Coachee first if this is likely to happen. The Coach is bound by the ethical code of the British Psychological Society and the General Medical Council.
Coaching is not “therapeutic” and the Coach will not act as a therapist providing psychoanalysis, psychological counselling or behavioural therapy. If the Coach considers that the Coachee requires therapeutic intervention he will discuss it with the Coachee.
Julius will have a relationship with other Coaches to ensure that his practice is of the highest quality possible (this is sometimes referred to as supervision). He may discuss Coaching issues which challenge him. This will always be done in a way that preserves the Coachees anonymity.

Coaching can be time-limited, or an ongoing programme. Following an initial short meeting the Coach and Coachee will agree a number (usually 4 or 6) of sessions (usually 1 hour or 90 minutes) and their frequency. At the end of the final session the Coach and Coachee will decide if they wish to continue. The Coachee can withdraw from Coaching at any time.
It is expected that both Coach and Coachee will take the Coaching relationship seriously and use their best efforts to maximise the benefits that can be obtained from it for the Coachee.

The Coach is not present to procure employment, promotion, business opportunities or preferment
to provide business or financial advice
to secure public relations or networking opportunities

the Coach may find it appropriate to support the Coachee so that they are better able to address such issues themselves.

The Coach and Coachee will at all times treat each other with respect and courtesy.


This Coaching will be carried out on a “Pro-Bono” basis
