I understand this is a legal document relating to my participation in mentoring with Charis Branson of www.charisbranson.com.
By signing this document, I waive any/all legal rights I may have against Charis Branson.
I have voluntarily agreed to participate in mentoring with Charis Branson, understanding that mentoring can be intense and may trigger emotions I am unfamiliar with or have suppressed. I also understand that Charis is not a licensed psychiatrist or mental health therapist. When I agree to mentor with Charis, I am agreeing to a collaborative experience, and I understand that she may refer me out if a more clinical approach is called for.
I hereby agree to the following:
2. If through my mentoring with Charis, I have a realization that makes me want to make substantial changes to my life, I agree I will not take any drastic action until I finish a series of sessions with her. If I subsequently decide to take action on something that feels correct on a profound level, I will not hold Charis Branson or any of her partners responsible for any consequences of said action. I acknowledge that part of the growth process is taking responsibility for all my choices and learning whatever lessons come with them.
4. I represent and warrant that I am psychologically fit, and I have willingly discussed any pertinent medical condition and/or medications with Charis prior to starting our mentoring relationship.
In agreeing to participate in mentoring sessions with Charis, I agree to:
a. Work at my own pace and inform Charis at any time a session is getting too intense.
b. When possible, abstain from any activity that exaggerates emotional overwhelm.
c. Follow a doctor’s instructions for the use of any medication, including depression medication. I understand Charis is not a doctor and will not advise me on the proper use of medications. I also understand that ceasing most prescribed medication ‘cold turkey,’ can have serious consequences.
d. I accept all responsibility for my well-being while receiving mentoring with Charis.
I hereby affirm that I am 19 years of age or older. I have read the above release and waiver of liability and fully understand its contents. I voluntarily agree to the terms and conditions stated above. I am aware this document is a release of all liability and a contract enforceable against me (and my heirs, next of kin, distributees, guardians, legal representatives, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns) in a court of law. I have signed this document of my own free will.
