For Clients Who Have Expressed Thoughts Of Self Harm

A Guide For Staying In Touch During Your Wait Period

To ensure safety and readiness for coaching we require clients who have expressed thoughts of, or have attempted self harm, to undergo a wait period. This is to allow time for you to seek the appropriate professional mental health support you need so that coaching can be as safe and effective as possible. During this time we will not leave you to walk alone. It is highly encouraged that we stay connected by way of your journal on the progress you make, be it in therapy sessions, or just a general update on your thoughts and feelings, your plans, and intentions for when we can resume your coaching journey. We will check in with you periodically to keep track of your progress and offer words of encouragement. This will also help us to hit the ground running when coaching commences, as we will have a good idea of where you are on your journey and your specific coaching needs. There is no charge during the wait period and you are under no obligation to share any information. This is completely optional and our way of saying thank you for choosing us and to keep us connected as you take steps towards a happier, healthier you.
