Services Agreement for Coaches


You became a coach so you could help people – not so you could stress about your legals. Whether you're a health coach, business coach, financial coach or mindset coach – you need to ensure that your clients know exactly what to expect, particularly when it comes to things like advice. That's why you need our Services Agreement for Coaches, designed specifically for you to prevent (or at least mitigate) tricky predicaments. Let this handy template take care of your legal needs so you can get back to doing what you do best: advocating for and facilitating improved health and wellbeing. Simply scroll through and tailor the template where required, and you’re ready to get going. We see you, making a positive impact on people’s lives! Go you! 

Who’s it for?   

Our Services Agreement for Coaches is for health coaches, business coaches, mindset coaches and financial coaches (and everything in between) who want to protect themselves and their biz – from cancelled consults, to setting out the scope of their services so that expectations are clear on both sides, and everything in between. If you’re a licensed health professional, you’ll want to check out our Services Agreement for Health Professionals instead. If you’re not sure whether this is the right agreement for you, jump on a  free 15-minute consult with one of our very-not-scary lawyers, so we can point you in the right direction. 

What's included?

  • Clear payment terms 
  • Your obligations (and those of your client) 
  • Intellectual property protection 
  • Termination terms 
  • Refund and cancellation provisions 
  • A completely customisable proposal that sets out the specifics 
  • Many more industry-specific bits and pieces to ensure your arrangement is legally legit 


A couple of quick things to make sure we’re on the same page:  

First, purchasing our templates, utilising our free resources or having a chat with us as part of a consultation doesn’t create a lawyer-client relationship between you and Foundd Legal (sorry!). It also doesn’t constitute legal advice.  

All templates adhere to Australian principles of contract law and are designed for those doing business in Australia (unless they specifically state that they are in accordance with New Zealand law, for businesses in New Zealand). Similar principles may apply in your jurisdiction, but we recommend that you consult with a qualified lawyer in your area prior to purchasing our templates. 

While we do our best to minimise legalese (that’s complex lawyer-speak) within our contracts, there are certain things that require particular wording in order to best protect you and your business. Please don’t expect our contracts to be super simple - they’re as simple as they possibly can be, while still being comprehensive and putting your needs first (even the ones you didn’t know you had!). Of course, if you’re having trouble understanding something specific, you’re welcome to get in touch with any questions!

Being new to the coaching space but not new to business, I knew how important contracts are - and wanted to protect myself from day one! I am so glad I purchased this coaching agreement. The clauses were worded so well - I read through the entire thing and it actually all made sense! From refunds, payments, confidentiality, guarantees - there is so much you need to protect yourself with if you are doing paid coaching. I felt confident signing on my first coaching client knowing that both myself and my client were protected. Thank you Riz!

Simple for non-legal brains

Such an easy document. Opened it up in word, edited the highlighted sections and saved and sent to my client. Legally covered without too much confusion!

Peace of mind

I am setting up a mentoring service through my existing business and after a free 15 minute chat with Riz, she recommended The Coaching Agreement to best suit my needs. It is absolutely worth every penny. There are so many things in there I hadn't thought of that are so important. I have peace of mind now, thankyou !
