  • We’ll help you succeed, whether we’re helping you one on one, or in a team, whether we are designing strategic initiatives or helping you communicate with your stakeholders, it always remains confidential with us.

Our Coaching Privacy Principles

It is important that Padraig Coaching & Consulting clients have confidence that Padraig can establish and maintain the confidentiality of information which clients entrust to us. Also relevant is Padraig Coaching & Consulting’s:

  • integrity in dealing with confidential information,
  • probity and ethics in managing its responsibilities to clients; and
  • management of the privacy of personal information.


The quality of the coaching relationship is a key element of success. The Coach creates a supportive and safe environment for the executive to comfortably and confidently take the risks necessary to adopt more effective behaviours while minimizing others.
Padraig Coaching & Consulting will conduct and deliver its services to its clients with integrity, sensitivity and confidentiality to maintain a relationship in which a client can have complete confidence that information shared with us will be used in a manner consistent with client expectations.

The content of any conversation between the Executive Client and Coach during the executive coaching engagement will be strictly confidential and will be conducted under the guidelines of the International Coach Federation (http://www.coachfederation.org/ethics/)

Padraig Coaching & Consulting will protect all confidential information of a client provided to us, from disclosure to persons and organizations unless prior authorization of the client is granted, or as may be required by law.

Padraig Coaching & Consulting will ensure the security of confidential information in its possession, whether such information is personal knowledge, hard copy or in electronic form.

Padraig Coaching & Consulting will enter into client-specific Confidentiality Agreements in recognition that such agreements reinforce these principles, and address an individual client requirement.

If any doubt arises as to the nature of confidentiality of information entrusted to Padraig Coaching & Consulting by a client, Padraig will seek the client’s resolution to such matters as a prerequisite to any disclosure.

Executive Coaching with Padraig Coaching & Consulting is provided in a private and confidential setting. Within our company, discussion of client information in a manner that may reveal a client’s identity must take place only on a “need to communicate” basis.
