These terms (the “Agreement”) are between you (“you” or “Client”) and Center For Peace (“CenFP”).
CenFP is honored to work with you. CenFP coaches come to sessions on time and free from distractions and respectfully request that you do the same.
The initial consultation to determine if you are a good fit for the program must be paid for in advance through a CenFP link at our rate which is adjusted from time to time. Payment must be made in full via cashier’s check or wire transfer. This will hold your seat for an entire year. For any services beyond the services outlined in the year-long program, your credit card is charged using third party software and CenFP is not responsible for any unauthorized access or security breaches the third-party processor may experience.
All CenFP payments are non-refundable, including payments for consultations. Consultations are non-refundable because Coach Joi’s time is extremely limited and valuable. A partially attended or missed consultation is also non-refundable.
REPRESENTATIONS OF CLIENT
CenFP sessions are not a substitute for licensed mental health care. As a client, you understand that in order to receive a diagnosis or treatment plan, you need to visit a licensed mental health professional. You agree to not seek any diagnosis from CenFP. We cannot treat or prevent a mental illness, whether in-person or remotely, including:
(a) conducting a professional evaluation of an individual’s condition of mental health, mental illness, or emotional disorder consistent with standards generally recognized in the professions of mental health therapy;
(b) establishing a diagnosis in accordance with established written standards generally recognized in the professions of mental health therapy;
(c) prescribing a plan for the prevention or treatment of a condition of mental illness or emotional disorder;
(d) engaging in the conduct of professional intervention, including psychotherapy by the application of established methods and procedures generally recognized in the professions of mental health therapy.
You agree to not look to or rely upon CenFP for any of the above listed services. You understand and agree that CenFP is not providing mental health services and you are fully responsible for your physical and emotional well-being during a CenFP session and choices made during and thereafter.
Website or podcast summaries are intended to provide information about the possible experience of clients and should not be understood as a guarantee or assurance of future success in any matter. The results portrayed were dependent on a variety of facts and circumstances unique to the particular individuals, including specific facts and circumstances of the matter, the choices of the individuals involved, and unanticipated events. Thus, the results obtained by others – whether clients of CenFP or otherwise – applying (or not applying) the principles set out in CenFP services or educational resources are no guarantee that you or any other person or entity will be able to obtain similar results.
Using any CenFP service, website, social media or educational information, you accept personal responsibility for the results of your actions. You agree to take full responsibility for any harm or damage you suffer as a result of the use, or non-use, of the information available at CenFP through our services or educational resources. You agree to use judgment and conduct due diligence before taking any action or implementing any plan or action suggested or recommended.
You agree that the CenFP has not made any guarantees about the results of utilizing our services. You recognize that your ultimate success or failure will be the result of your own efforts, your particular situation, and innumerable other circumstances beyond the control and/or knowledge of CenFP.
You hereby release, waive, and forever discharge CenFP, its owners, contractors, agents, successors, assigns, and employees (each of whom is referred to herein as a “CenFP Affiliate”) from every claim for damages you may now have as well as those you may yet acquire arising out of actions or omissions of a CenFP Affiliate to the full extent permitted by law. You further declare and represent that you are competent to enter this Agreement and do so of your own free will. You further declare that no promise, inducement or agreement not herein expressed has been made to you to enter into this release. The release made pursuant to this paragraph shall bind your heirs, executors, personal representatives, successors, assigns, and agents. If you breach any of the terms of this Agreement in any way, you agree to be responsible for paying all damages incurred by CenFP, including, but not limited to any out-of-pocket costs, expenses, and attorney’s fees regardless of whether litigation is required. This paragraph will survive any conclusion or termination of this Agreement.
I understand that CenFP coaches will not provide testimony or verification of program participation for legal, medical or any other purposes unless compelled by a judge’s order. If a facilitator is required to testify, they are ethically bound not to give opinions. Coaches will not make recommendations about the decisions before the court. Furthermore, if a facilitator is required to appear as a witness or to otherwise perform work related to any legal matter, the party responsible for the facilitators participation agrees to reimburse the facilitator at the rate of $400 per hour for time spent traveling, speaking/corresponding with attorneys, reviewing and preparing documents, testifying, being in attendance, and any other case-related costs.
You agree that you will not contract with or receive coaching services from any CenFP Coach outside of the CenFP structure or hire or pay any CenFP Coach directly. You will immediately notify CenFP of any suggestion by a CenFP Coach that you hire that coach outside of CenFP. You agree that any referral made by CenFP for other professional services is in no way intended to be an endorsement of that service provider by CenFP. You agree and acknowledge the importance of personally evaluating the qualifications of all service providers and agree it is your individual decision to make regarding which service provider(s) to use. This paragraph will survive any conclusion or termination of this Agreement.
Because CenFP will not disclose the identity of clients, and therefore cannot respond to or refute such disparagement publicly without revealing confidential information about the client, you agree that you will not at any time make, publish or communicate to any person or entity or post on any public forum a defamatory or disparaging remark, comment or statement concerning CenFP or any of its directors, coaches, team members, contractors, employees, agents, or clients. Doing so may result in immediate termination of Client’s services and may result in legal action.
Similarly, CenFP agrees to not make any public statements on any forum about a clients participation in the program in any capacity, including refuting untrue statements or claims made against CenFP unless compelled by a judges order.
By scheduling a session and clicking on “I agree to the terms and conditions found at cenfp.org/terms,” you agree to be added to the CenFP email list and to receive communications from CenFP. You understand that CenFP is not HIPAA compliant because CenFP does not store medical information. Regardless, we treat your information confidentially and it will not share or sell any of your personal information with or to third parties.
Although we have an SSL Certificate which ensures CenFP provides secure, encrypted communications between a website and an internet browser, CenFP cannot guarantee the privacy of its users from hackers.
Clients are strictly prohibited from recording Individual or Group Sessions, for any reason. Recording Sessions in violation of this agreement will result in immediate termination from all CenFP services, without refund of all fees paid to date. We ask that clients also keep the names of Group Session clients confidential, although we can’t guarantee that clients will keep confidentiality.
