Please read this Agreement and sign and date it below, letting me know you agree to the terms of participating in the Program. There's a lot of legal stuff here, designed to protect you, to protect me, and to give you the best possible experience in this Program. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
By applying for Breakthrough (the “Program”) , you (the "Client") irrevocably agree that, if Sue Rasmussen (the “Company” or “I”) has approved your Application and accepted you into the Program as a participant, then this Agreement automatically becomes a binding contract between you and the Company, and applies to your participation in the Program. By applying for the Program, you acknowledge that you have read, agree to, and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement. I may amend this Agreement at any time by emailing you a revised version.
BE ALL IN
By being accepted into the Program, you have authorized the Company to charge your credit or debit card as payment for your membership in the Program. You agree that you are responsible for a full payment of fees for the Program, regardless of whether you have selected the full pay option or the payment plan option. By applying for the Program, you also acknowledge that you have represented to the Company that payment of your Program membership fees will not place a significant burden on you or your family. After your three-day cancellation window, no refunds will be issued and all payments must be paid on a timely basis.
You joined this Program to do something we agreed was challenging or impossible for you to accomplish on your own. When you run into challenges, especially patterns or habits you've been trying to change, you will likely want to stop or distract yourself in any number of ways. That's a totally normal part of the process of real transformation. For that very reason, I can't hold space for you to solve that problem AND hold space for you to quit on yourself at the same time. My "no refund" policy is a clear way of saying neither of us is willing to accept failure as an option, right from the start. I am in. You are in. Let's do this.
COMMITMENT TO A POSITIVE GROUP EXPERIENCE
I am 100% committed to providing all Program participants with a positive Program experience. By applying, you agree that the Company may, as its sole discretion, terminate this agreement, and limit, suspend, or terminate your participation in the Program without refund or forgiveness of any remaining payments if you become disruptive or difficult to work with, if you fail to follow the Program guidelines, or if you impair the participation of Program instructors or participants in the Program.
I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Client well-being is paramount and I will only take on and retain clients who are best served by my expertise.
I respect your privacy and must insist that you respect the privacy of fellow Program participants. By applying, you agree not to violate the publicity or privacy rights of any Program participant. I respect your confidential and proprietary information, ideas, plans, and trade secrets (collectively, “Confidential Information”) and must insist that you respect the same rights of fellow Program participants and of the Company.
All personal information shared with me will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and will not at any time, either directly or indirectly, be disclosed with any person outside of our sessions without your specific approval. However, this excludes disclosure of illegal or unethical activities as required by law. Since I am not a licensed psychologist, psychiatrist, or mental health counselor, I may legally be subpoenaed to testify in any legal action in which you are involved and be required to give testimony regarding information learned during our time working together.
By applying for the program, you agree (1) not to infringe on any Program participant(s) of the Company’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property right, (2) that any confidential Information share by Program participants or any representative of the Company is confidential and proprietary, and belongs solely and exclusively to the participant who discloses it or the Company, (3) you agree not to disclose such information to any other person or use it in any manner other than in discussion with other Program participants during Program sessions. By applying for the program, you further agree that (4) all materials and information provided to you by the Company, and may only be used by you as authorized by the company, and (5) the reproduction, distribution and sale of these materials by anyone by the Company is strictly prohibited. Further, by applying for the program, you agree that, if you violate, or display any likelihood of violating, any of your agreements contained in this paragraph, the Company and/or the other Program participant(s) will be entitled to injunctive relief to prohibit any such violations to protect against the harm of such violations.
USE OF MIND-BODY TECHNIQUES
As part of the Program, I'll be teaching you a suite of cutting-edge, yet extremely simple, self-help techniques, including EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), commonly known as tapping.
In study after study, EFT has proven to be highly effective in enhancing the body’s ability to change behavior patterns, overcome negative beliefs, and eliminate stress. EFT is often referred to as “emotional acupressure” because you are using fingers, not needles, to tap on these various points while thinking of your problem, issue, or challenge.
EFT has been used by thousands of coaches, therapists, psychologists, doctors, and individuals worldwide with remarkable clinical results for relieving emotional and physical distress, but there is no guarantee that EFT will work for you. When you choose to use EFT, it is possible that emotional or physical sensations or additional unresolved memories may surface, which could be perceived as negative side effects. If you intend to use these techniques, you MUST agree to take full responsibility for yourself.
Please note: By using EFT, it is highly possible that previously vivid or traumatic memories may fade. If you are involved in a legal action, this could adversely affect your ability to provide detailed legal testimony regarding a traumatic incident. If you have questions about this, let me know.
NATURE OF RELATIONSHIP
I have been trained and certified as a professional coach and EFT and Matrix Reimprinting practitioner, not as a psychotherapist, social worker, psychologist, psychiatrist, mental health counselor, or physician, and I DO NOT diagnose psychological or medical conditions. Coaching and EFT are in no way to be construed as psychological counseling or any type of therapy. I do not recommend substituting these techniques for the professional services of a doctor, psychologist, or psychiatrist. If any issues come up for you that should be handled by a licensed therapist or physician, I will request that you attend to your well-being by contacting the appropriate professional.
The information presenting during our sessions, including but not limited to information about EFT, is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, illness, addiction, or other psychological, mood, impulse control, emotional, behavioral, or mental health disorder. You understand that I do not recommend stopping seeing any of your health care professionals or using prescribed medications without consulting with the appropriate health care professional.
Except in the case of gross negligence or malpractice, you or your representative(s) agree to fully release and hold harmless Susan K. Rasmussen from and against any and all claims or liability of whatsoever kind or nature arising out of or in connection with your session(s).
I have made every effort to accurately represent the Program and its potential. I will use the best of my expertise, training, background, and experience to help you achieve the results discussed.
Your success depends on any factors, including your background, dedication, desire, and motivation. By applying for the program, you acknowledge that as with any business endeavor, there is an inherent risk of loss of capital and there is no guarantee that you will earn any money as a result of your participation in the Program.
