Couples Coaching Session with Jayson Gaddis


Relationship Coaching Agreement

I understand that my relationship coach is Jayson Gaddis, Founder of The Relationship School.

As a client, I understand and agree that I am fully responsible for my physical, mental and emotional well-being during my coaching calls, including my choices and decisions. I am aware that I can choose to discontinue coaching at any time.

I understand that relationship “coaching” is a Professional-Client relationship that I have with my coach, which is designed to facilitate the creation/development of personal relationship goals and to develop and carry out a strategy/plan for achieving those goals.

I understand that relationship coaching 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 coaching into those areas, and implement my choices is exclusively my responsibility.

I understand that relationship coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. I understand that coaching 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.

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 coach and that this person is aware of my decision to proceed with the coaching.

I understand that 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.

Finally, I understand that my coach is providing coaching services independently and is not an employee or agent of Jayson Gaddis, LLC or The Relationship School, and I hereby release Jayson Gaddis, LLC and The Relationship School from any liability whatsoever in connection with the coaching services provided by my coach.



I understand that I will have one sessions with my coach. This call needs to begin on time. I understand that if I’m more than 10 minutes late, Jayson may not meet with me. All sessions are via Zoom. Calls will be recorded for supervision and training purposes.

I give my full permission to use all recorded sessions of my coaching with Jayson Gaddis for educational and training purposes at The Relationship School. I understand that my video sessions are recorded and archived in a private and secure online database called “The RS learning Library” and is only to be used for training and educational purposes for relationship coaches in training.

Supervision. I understand that certain topics and call recordings may be anonymously and hypothetically shared with Jayson’s peers and mentors for training OR consultation purposes only to better serve me.

I understand that information will be held as confidential unless I state otherwise, in writing, except as required by law.



I agree to make session cancellation by leaving my coach a text, or an email message 24 hours before the scheduled appointment. I understand that if I fail to do so, this counts for my session and I agree to pay in full.



I understand I am being charged the rate outlined on the payment page. I agree to pay in full prior to scheduling on Jayson’s calendar, and I agree to pay the designated amount on time.


Pre-Session Clarity

I understand it is best if I come to the session with at least three relationship issues I want to address, receive support around, get feedback on, or dive into. I will also remain tethered to the most important big picture relationship goal I have so this session can be in support of my biggest desire.


Post-Session Notes

I understand that taking notes immediately following a session is helpful so that I can retain what we’ve discussed. Your coach will do the same. I can email my coach my takeaways as a way to hold myself to noting the highlights.


Additional Contact

I understand that email contact is included in that I may email my coach to report wins and new insights. My coach will read my emails thoroughly, usually within 24 hours of receiving them (on the weekends this can be slower) and may get back to me, if there is an urgent need. However, the main coaching will happen during my live session with my coach. I understand that an email of mine may be left unanswered (or merely briefly acknowledged) – and I know that my coach will still welcome, read and take my email seriously.


Phone contact

Phone support is not included in our coaching agreement at this time.


The Relationship School, Facebook, Blog, Email list

I understand it is crucial that I understand the context and view that informs the relationship coaching work with Jayson and The Relationship School. I will read Jayson’s blog, and/or listen to his podcast. This will help me and my coach have a shared language for what type of relationship work we are doing.


Hunger & Commitment

I understand that my intrinsic motivation is the best predictor of accomplishing desired outcomes. In other words, the hungrier I am for change, the quicker results will happen. Commitment to the work is crucial. 



I understand that this is a single session as part of a special offer and that my the client/coach relationship will end after this session, unless other arrangements and agreements are made.


I have read and I agree to the terms in their entirety as listed above.
