Coaching Disclaimer & Waiver

All coaching services and communication, email or otherwise, delivered by Amy Meraki Co., (your “Coach”),  as well as information set forth on this website www.wildwomanwords.com are meant to to satisfy your own interest in the topics presented and potentially, assist you with your own self improvement.  However, you agree that any satisfaction with a particular course or material is entirely subjective and that we do not guarantee that you will like, agree with or receive any results from any particular course or materials.   Coaching is not professional mental health care or medical care and is not a replacement for medical advice or psychological treatment.

Some primary difference between “Life Coaching” and professional mental health care such as Psychotherapy, or other forms of professional therapy are:

Life Coaching: is generally about helping you find clarity on your desired feelings and future goals, then helping you see and transform the inner blocks in the way of them now, and create action steps to achieve what you want moving forward.
Coaches are alternative practitioners and not Mental Healthcare Professionals. Our work together is more as a “team”, not a “doctor-patient” relationship.
Therapy/counselling: is generally more about looking at the past, the family system, and unhealed trauma in order to resolve past issues that may be effecting your life or relationships negatively in the present. This type of work is usually a long term process guided by a Licensed Healthcare Professional.
More in depth information on the differences can be found in this article here.
