INTRODUCTION

I’m an expert at what I do in this unique field of discipline. I have the experience and skills, plus I have an eternal curiosity about others and a willingness to help where I can. This disclaimer is to cover me in saying that, no, I cannot actually guarantee the outcome of our coaching efforts and/or recommendations on my website/blog/email series and I am not to be held responsible for your personal actions or choices before, during or after any of my programs, services and/or products. Any comments I make about the outcome are expressions of my personal opinion only. I can guarantee you this, however: I will do my best to coach you, and I’ll do everything in my power to help.

The information contained in my website, blog, programs, services and e-mails is for educational and informational purposes only.

A coach is not to be mistaken with medical health practitioners such as doctors, mental health providers including psychiatrists, psychologists, psycho-therapists, counsellors, or social workers, nor am I holding myself out to be in any such capacity.  I am not providing health care, medical or nutrition therapy services or attempting to diagnose, treat or cure in any manner whatsoever any physical ailment, or any mental or emotional issue, disease or condition. Rather, I serve as coach, educator, and guide who will help you reach your own health and wellness goals through implementing incremental, positive, healthy, sustainable lifestyle changes in a step by step manner.

CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN OR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER

My intent is NOT to replace any relationship that exists, or should exist, between you and your medical doctor, mental health provider, or other health care professional. Always seek the advice of your physician, mental health provider, or another qualified health care professional regarding any questions or concerns you have about your specific health situation, physical or mental health issues, possible or actual pregnancy, known or suspected food sensitivities or allergies, dietary restrictions, or any medications you are currently taking.

I advise you to speak with your own physician and/or your own mental health provider before implementing any suggestions from my website, blog, e-mails, programs, services and/or products about lifestyle and diet; or participating in any other aspect of a food, exercise or lifestyle program.

NO GUARANTEES

My role is to support and assist you in reaching your goals, but your success depends primarily on your own effort, motivation, commitment and follow-through. I cannot and do not guarantee that you will attain a particular result, and you understand the concept that results differ by each individual. Each individual’s health, fitness, and nutrition success depends on his or her background, dedication, desire, and motivation. As with any health-related program or service, your results may vary, and will be based on many variables, including but not limited to, your individual capacity, life experience, unique health and genetic profile, starting point, expertise, and level of commitment.

CLIENT STORIES

I present real world experiences, testimonials, and insights about other people’s experiences for purposes of illustration only. Any testimonials and examples portrayed are of actual clients and results they personally achieved. Names have been changed, if requested; and photos may be from stock images and not of the actual person; in order to maintain their anonymity. Each client has approved these testimonials, examples, and photos for use in materials to speak to my program, service, and/or product capabilities, but they are not intended to represent or guarantee that current or future clients will achieve the same or similar results. Rather, these client stories represent what is possible with our programs, services, and/or products. Each of these unique stories, and any and all results reported in these stories by my clients, are the culmination of numerous variables, some of which I cannot control.
