1. Getting Started
The price is determined and agreed between you and the coach or mentor, in your communications.
The members will schedule the sessions with clients as agreed, and the members will check with Coachist that the funds are paid before commencing the sessions.
At Coachist, we refer to members who focus on life coaching and related areas, as life coaches. Members who provide services about business and related areas, to individuals or businesses, are referred to as business mentors. Coaches for Life + Mentors for Business. Some members are able to provide both types.
You will organise the details together with your coach or mentor. Options can include holding sessions through apps like WhatsApp, Skype, over telephone, or with professional teleconferencing such as Teamviewer Blizz – or even in-person depending on your location.
2. Your Safety
Coachist adheres to strict EU GDPR privacy and data protection regulations. We screen and request identification only from all verified coaches and mentors for the purpose of binding them legally to adhere to the same strict regulations when dealing with client information.
We advise against it. If a member requests to organise sessions and payment outside of Coachist, please inform us via email or through our Official WhatsApp. Coachist is a legally incorporated entity bound to protect clients’ privacy and provide quality services. We require mentors and coaches to go through Coachist to maintain this level of quality and protection of clients’ interests.
You do not have the legal protection that Coachist helps to ensure regarding the privacy and protection of the information you exchange. Also, there are no guarantees, quality control, fraud-protection, or enforceable refund policies which Coachist helps to ensure as an incorporated company. The member may be trying to do so illegally to avoid tax, fees, or legal liability towards clients. We expect members of Coachist to hold sessions under the protection and supervision of our company, as per the Terms of our Service to which they agreed, which is centered around clients’ best interests and ensuring the safest and best quality service provision.
We screen each member to ensure quality and prestige. For additional confidence, we offer to optionally verify members by prove their identify, commitment to privacy, and consent to legally bind them to the EU GDPR privacy and data protection regulations.
A coach or mentor who is verified has taken the additional optional steps to provide documentation to Coachist to prove their identity. Verified members also agree to legally adhere to GDPR privacy regulations in regards to the protection of personal data of the clients that they come into contact with. It is a sign of transparency and trust for a coach or mentor to go through the additional process to become verified, however this can invoke confidence into their credibility and dedication to quality and privacy.

4. Further Information
Cyprus is where the concept started. The founder of Coachist resides in Cyprus and as the management decisions are carried out from Cyprus, the company is incorporated here in compliance with and under the protection of Cyprus Company Law and strict EU privacy regulations. We plan to expand internationally once Coachist exits the startup phase!
Our members each charge differently based on their experience and offerings. Coachist pays the members 50% of the price agreed to with clients, as outlined in the Terms of Service. The reason for this can be found in the breakdown of where the money goes and why 50% strikes a necessary balance between rewarding members while being able to sustaining the company’s operations and international expansion. Find the details in our Pitch Deck and we appreciate if you email us or contact us at our Official WhatsApp for any feedback.
Coachist pays European VAT in Cyprus, applicable Corporate taxes, audit fees as well as corresponding accounting fees. Each member who provides coaching or mentoring is responsible for declaring their income in their respective tax jurisdiction as required by the law of their jurisdiction.
No. However, contact us if this is something that you need and Coachist will strive to provide and organise accommodations for you.
Yes. In addition to our Official WhatsApp and email, we are reachable through LINE, Skype, Teleconferencing, Telegram, Viber, WeChat, and more.
