More detailed descriptions of the Services and instructions on how to use the Services can be found on the website of the Service in question or in the written offer. A customer refers to either a private customer (consumer) or a corporate customer who has purchased the Service for its staff member(s).

The main coach is Tanja Saarinen Chávez. The coach continuously strives to ensure that the level of service remains high by maintaining his/her professional skills, for example through further training. You accept these General Terms and Conditions when accepting the offer for the Service.

The Service Provider is not responsible for them or any technical failures or interruptions in third-party Services.
Purpose of the training
The purpose of the trainings and coaching is to help the Customer identify different areas to develop. All trainings and coaching services and communications (via email or other means) as well as websites and social media information are intended to assist in this task.
The right time for personal coaching is when major emotional and psychological wounds and traumas have already healed or are healing.
Coaching conditions and related limitations
Coaching is not provided as a substitute for professional mental health care or medical care, nor is it intended to diagnose, treat or improve any mental health challenges. The coach does not work as a mental health counselor or medical professional. Coaching is currently an unregulated field and Coach is not "licensed" by the standards required by the Finnish state for the above-mentioned work.
The customer is responsible for their well-being during and after coaching meetings, including the choices and decisions made by the customer. Coaching does not replace healthcare counselling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis or treatment related to mental health or substance abuse, and the Client should not use it instead of any other treatment.
All comments and ideas provided by Coach are intended exclusively to help the Customer achieve the goals created together. By starting coaching, the Customer gives consent to the Coach to help him or her to achieve the above goals. The Customer warrants that no contractual promise has been made to him or her that would not have been expressed in this agreement.
Implementation of coaching
The coaching program is arranged between the Coach and the Customer and can be booked in advance. The coach recommends the frequency of the coaching meetings included in the coaching program based on the customer's needs and professional assessment. This recommendation or plan is not binding and may be amended and adapted throughout the coaching relationship by mutual agreement.
The number and frequency of coaching meetings will be agreed between the Coach and the Customer at the start of the coaching, and the Coach will confirm the meetings by email. If no specific number has been agreed, the coaching will take place one meeting at a time.
The date and time of the first meeting and subsequent appointments will be agreed between the Coach and the Customer by phone or email or through a booking site. The coach confirms the date of the appointments by email or another format.
Coaching meetings can take place face-to-face (place by mutual agreement) or online, by phone, or in any other form, if agreed. Unless otherwise agreed, the Customer is responsible for calling and showing up to the online with the Coach at the agreed times. The coach is responsible for being available at the agreed times. The length of each appointment is agreed between the Coach and the Customer via email or booking site before the start of the coaching.
The coach and the Customer can agree at any point in the coaching program to arrange additional meetings. These terms and conditions apply to all additional appointments. The price of the service will remain at the original level unless the Service Provider/Coach notifies the Customer in writing by email of a change to the price or other condition.
The coach can give the Customer assignments or exercises between coaching meetings. The customer is not obligated to perform these "homework", but not doing so may slow down the Customer's development and achievement of the goals. In questions, transfer of appointments and other similar situations, the Customer may contact the Coach by email between meetings.
Additional coaching may also be agreed to take place between appointments, but there is an additional fee. The Service Provider will always advise the Customer in advance if an action may result in an additional payment and the action will not be performed before the Customer's approval for an additional fee.
Postponing of the coaching session
If the Customer has to postpone the agreed coaching meeting, they must notify the Coach at least 48 hours in advance by email or through booking site. The customer will not be refunded for unused appointments unless the notification has been made within that period. If the notification has been made within that period, the aim is primarily to find a new time for the meeting.
Exceptionally, the Coach may have to postpone the coaching meeting due to, for example, his or her own illness or other weighty reason. The coach will notify the customer of the transfer 48 hours in advance, if possible. The coach strives to agree on a new coaching meeting as quickly as possible with the Customer. If a new appointment can be arranged, no refund or refund will be paid for the appointment cancelled due to the transfer.
Group coaching and Live Q&A
If the Client has purchased group coaching or Live Q&A services, the Client acknowledges that the length of the services may vary according to the number of participants. However, the length of group coaching or Live Q&A will not extend above two hours, unless otherwise informed by the Coach.
The Client acknowledges, that in group coaching and in Live Q&A the participants will have limited time with the Coach and the time dedicated for each participant may be limited for no more than five minutes per sessions. Because Group Coaching sessions have more than one group coaching client present, sessions will begin on time, every time. Client is therefore advised to join the Group Coaching Sessions at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled time by using the video conference link supplied by Coach prior to the event.
The Customer will be automatically added to the next available Live Q&A. If the next Live Q&A event is within two days of the purchase, the Customer will be added to the next month’s Live Q&A session.
