This agreement is between you, the Client, and Renee Gilroy, Strategic Interventionist/Coach, whereby Renee Gilroy agrees to provide Intervention/Coaching Services for Client(s).  

Description: Strategic Intervention/Coaching is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Strategic Interventionist/Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal, relationship and professional potential.  


  1. As a client, I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my physical, mental and emotional well-being, including my choices and decisions. I am aware that I can choose to discontinue coaching at any time.
  2. I understand that “strategic intervention” and “coaching” is a Professional-Client relationship I have with my coach that is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal, professional or business goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.
  3. I understand that strategic intervention is a comprehensive process that may involve all areas of my life, including work, finances, health, relationships, education and recreation. I acknowledge that deciding how to handle these issues, incorporate strategic intervention into those areas, and implement my choices is exclusively my responsibility.
  4. I understand that strategic intervention does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. I understand that strategic intervention is not a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care or substance abuse treatment and I will not use it in place of any form of diagnosis, treatment or therapy.
  5. I promise that if I am currently in therapy or otherwise under the care of a mental health professional, that I have consulted with the mental health care provider regarding the advisability of working with a strategic interventionist/coach and that this person is aware of my decision to proceed with the coaching relationship.
  6. I understand that information will be held as confidential unless I state otherwise, in writing, except as required by law; I understand, however, that weekly real-time chat sessions will be done via a messenger app of my choice, and the privacy of that service is unrelated to and not the responsibility of Step One LLC; I also understand that email and text messaging is only as secure as the systems I utilize.
  7. I understand that certain topics may be anonymously and hypothetically shared with other coaching professionals for training OR consultation purposes.
  8. I understand that strategic intervention/coaching is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, medical, financial, business, spiritual or other qualified professionals. I will seek independent professional guidance for legal, medical, financial, business, spiritual or other matters. I understand that all decisions in these areas are exclusively mine and I acknowledge that my decisions and my actions regarding them are my sole responsibility.
  9. Cancellation Policy: Client agrees that it is the Client's responsibility to notify Renee Gilroy 24 hours in advance of the scheduled meetings. If notification is given less than 24 hours in advance, a $25 cancellation fee will apply.
