General Terms and Conditions

General terms and conditions of business

 

1. General terms, scope of application

Life Transformation Coaching & Counselling Sylvia F. Rodatz ( in the following referred to as Coach), conducts coaching, workshops and other events according to these General Terms and Conditions (GTC). With the assignment, these terms and conditions are considered accepted by the contracting party (hereinafter referred to as client). Deviations from these terms and conditions must be agreed upon in writing. Deviating terms and conditions of the client shall not apply unless expressly agreed in writing.

 

2. Conclusion of contract

A contract is considered to be concluded when the client places an order and the coach accepts the order. The placement of the order by the client and the acceptance of the order by the coach can take place by e-mail, telephone, in writing or verbally.

 

3. Differentiation from psychotherapy

Life Transformation Coaching and psychological counseling is not psychotherapy and does not replace it. Coaching is based on a partnership between coach and client, in which the role of the coach is clearly differentiated from the role of therapist and doctor. Psychotherapy is the targeted treatment of a mental illness. Coaching serves the "healthy" person, who is capable of acting and self-reflection. The result of a coaching session is not the reduction of psychological complaints, but the individual development of the client, which is accompanied by an increase in his or her general quality of life. 

Every client is responsible for him or herself before, during and after the coaching. 

By placing an order, the client confirms that he/she feels mentally and physically healthy and can participate in the coaching. 

By placing an order, the client also expressly declares that he/she has read and agreed to the terms and conditions.
