Safe Guarding

  • Introduction

    • As a life and executive coach, I have a duty of care to protect the safety and well-being of my clients. This safeguarding plan outlines the steps I will take to identify and manage risks, and to respond to concerns about abuse or neglect.

    • I will keep this plan up-to-date and review it regularly to ensure that it remains relevant and effective.

  • Definitions

    • Safeguarding is the process of protecting children and vulnerable adults at risk from harm. It includes identifying and assessing risks, and responding to concerns about abuse or neglect.

    • Abuse is any form of maltreatment that causes harm to a person. It can be physical, emotional, sexual, or financial.

    • Neglect is the failure to provide for a child's or vulnerable person's basic needs, such as food, clothing, shelter, medical care, or education.


  • Confidentiality

    • The content of coaching sessions are always confidential providing that there isn’t risk of abuse to you, by you, or by others.


  • Responding to concerns

    • I will also consult with other professionals, such as social workers or child protection specialists, when necessary.
