1. BreakThrough Coaching is a cooperative endeavor and you as the client are in the driver’s seat. James Mayfield Smith is a guide, trained to listen, reflect, and offer structured processes designed to get you in touch with your own inner wisdom, to gain insights, have breakthroughs, and experience energetic shifts that lead to lasting change. BreakThrough Coaching utilizes strategic planning, values clarification, intrapersonal insight, mindfulness, shamanic and mythological tools, self-care, emotional intelligence, stress management, and self-regulation techniques that focus primarily on present unmet needs. You are likely to be given specific ongoing practices as part of our work together, and you will get out of our work as much as you are willing to put into it.
2. BreakThrough Coaching does not diagnose or treat mental health disorders. Coaching is not reimbursable through health insurance policies, as psychotherapy often is. Both coaching and psychotherapy utilize knowledge of human behavior, motivation and behavioral change, and interactive counseling techniques. The major differences are in the goals, focus, and level of professional responsibility. The primary focus of BreakThrough Coaching is to nurture the inner BreakThroughs required to reach client-identified goals of enhanced performance, personal satisfaction, and improvement in the general conditions in the client’s life, business, or profession. The primary focus of psychotherapy is identification, diagnosis, and treatment of mental and nervous disorders. The goals of psychotherapy include alleviating symptoms, understanding the underlying dynamics which create symptoms, changing dysfunctional behaviors which are the result of these disorders, and developing new strategies for successfully coping with the psychological challenges we all face.
3. The relationship between the coach and client is specifically designed to avoid the power differentials that occur in the psychotherapy relationship. The client sets the agenda and the success of the enterprise depends on the client's willingness to take risks and try new approaches. The relationship is designed to be more direct and challenging. You can count on James Mayfield Smith as your coach to be honest and straightforward, asking powerful questions and using challenging techniques to move you forward. You are expected to evaluate progress and when coaching is not working as you wish, you should immediately inform James so that you both can take steps to correct the issue.
4. James Mayfield Smith is also a trained Shamanic Minister, ordained through Venus Rising Association for Transformation. If shamanic psycho-spiritual counseling tools (such as shamanic breathwork) would be a beneficial addition to your inner work, then shamanic counseling tools may be added to your coaching program.
5. APPOINTMENTS, HOURS AND LOCATION
Most Breakthrough Coaching clients meet virtually via webinar using Zoom technology (or if needed, other web-based platforms) or occasionally via telephone. Individual sessions can be 25, 60, 85, or 120 minutes in length, and can be scheduled via the BreakThrough Circle calendar app at https://breakthroughcircle.acuityscheduling.com/schedule.php. Local clients may schedule Asheville-based sessions according to James' availability.
6. CANCELLATION POLICY
In the event that you are unable to keep an appointment, please notify James Mayfield Smith as soon as possible to reschedule. If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, simply use the cancel or reschedule link in the confirmation email or text that was sent about your appointment. In a pinch, you can also text (preferred) of call or email James directly to reschedule if needed.
7. FINANCIAL TERMS
Fees for virtual sessions are to be made through PayPal or via the Stripe shopping cart prior to each session. Most clients purchase a package with a number of sessions or a specific program or course with a set number of individual Breakthrough coaching sessions. Most programs feature recurring monthly billing that can be turned off at any time via the link provided in the payment confirmation. You can also text James and he will pause or cancel payment as requested. For clients who prefer to work in person, face to face sessions meeting at James' Asheville office may either be paid through PayPal in advance or in person (via check, cash, or MC/Visa) at the time of your session.
BreakThrough Circle offers one of the most wide open refund policies available. For our Level 3 program (4 weekly 85 min sessions), if you are not satisfied with the BreakThrough facilitation and the results that you receive, you may ask for a full refund of your investment of your current package. Simply let James know by the second or third session that you don't feel you're getting what you had hoped from the sessions. We'll address it first, then if not to your satisfaction, I'll refund you your current month's payment and cancel your program. If you aren’t blown away by the results of your BreakThrough Circle work, then we prefer that you invest it somewhere that gets you the results you are looking for.
9. YOUR CHOICE TO INVEST IN ONE OF THE BREAKTHROUGH CIRCLE COACHING PROGRAMS INDICATES THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREE TO ITS TERMS. IT ALSO SERVES AS AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THAT YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO TERMINATE YOUR PERSONAL COACHING RELATIONSHIP AT ANY TIME.
