Mental Health Policy
Amparo Penny is a licensed mental health professional in the state of NC. However, Amparo Penny only provides coaching services to clients of Amparo Penny Coaching and Consulting. Coaching is not a substitute or alternative for mental health counseling, psychoanalysis or examination, or other mental health services. Do not delay diagnosis or treatment. Do not postpone appointments, go without or adjust medications, or otherwise rely on coaching as a substitute or alternative for mental health care.
In the event the coach deems, in the coach’s sole discretion, that coaching is not appropriate for you, the coach will notify you of the termination of the coaching relationship. Amparo Penny is unable to provide therapy services to you.
As a licensed mental health professional, Amparo will provide certain therapy-style documents to you at the start of the coaching relationship, although therapy will not be provided. These documents are intended to explain how certain aspects of a mental health setting may carry over to the coaching relationship.
For example, while coaching is not subject to any privilege, Amparo Penny does strive to keep communications confidential. However, there are certain instances, usually pertaining to making threats to harm yourself or someone else, that Amparo will abide by mandatory reporting rules typical of mental health settings.
Amparo Penny does not provide letters for ongoing court cases or other purposes.
