Scheduling for Coaching Call
This is your form to schedule a Coaching Call with the STTM site creator, and author Janie Bowthorpe, M.Ed. As a fellow thyroid patient, she will share with you what two decades have taught us in getting well, and based on what you explain about yourself! Then it’s up to you & your own doctor!
**Read ALL below..
1) What do I type out in my request for a call below?
A brief description, one or two sentences max, of what you want to talk about. DO NOT GO INTO DETAILS. Janie WILL be asking you in the call for a full history, of which she gets nuances that she doesn’t in an email.
2) After I request a call below, how long before I hear from Janie?
You will usually receive an email reply within 3 business days or less. CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER—replies can sometimes go there, too! If it goes longer (not common), request again, just in case the pointy-eared internet monster failed us. Janie does not work on weekends or weekday evenings.
3) When I hear back from Janie with a workable date and time, plus how to pay, should I pay timely?
Since Janie usually has a waiting list of people she is scheduling, not replying timely to her email means someone else can grab the day and time she offered you! 🙁
4) Does Janie call me?
Yes she does, whether a PHONE CALL (unblock your block of unseen callers), SKYPE (audio only), or ZOOM (audio and video via the app).
5) Can I get a refund if I forget about the scheduled day and time?
Because some people have ruined it for you by being irresponsible, it is now absolutely required to do whatever method you use to remember. No excuses accepted. Thus, no refunds, since it results in someone else losing that day and time. You will need to reschedule and pay again.

***HERE IS WHAT YOU AGREE TO BY DOING A CALL WITH JANIE i.e. the DISCLAIMER:
a) By doing a coaching call, you are agreeing that you will be receiving patient-to-patient information from Janie, based on what you explain about your issues, and based on 20 years of patient-reported observations and experiences in getting well. Then you take total responsibility for how you want to use the information or in working with your doctor. You also take responsibility for any risks. Janie is not a doctor and just the person who relays what other patients have reported for two decades.
b) You agree that the contents of the call is NOT to be seen as a substitute for your relationship with or guidance from a qualified medical professional.
c) You agree that the $90 pre-payment for the first 30 minutes or less is a flat rate, based on “time”, not on “content”, and it reserves your spot. If not paid in a timely manner, someone else can grab your spot.
d) Once the call starts after your successful payment, you agree that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO WATCH THE TIME if you firmly want to stop at 30 minutes, and say it’s time to stop. Otherwise, it becomes a minute-by-minute extra amount. It’s VERY common to go over the first 30 minutes, by the way, due to the amount of information given. But you can choose not to receive all the info and ask to stop at 30 minutes.
e) For the extra minutes after the first paid 30, you will receive a second email from Janie as to the cost of the extra minutes accrued by going over the first 30 minutes. IT IS DUE THAT DAY or before you go to bed. <—READ THAT AGAIN. Please respect Janie in being timely with the payment.
Real patient reviews about a coaching call with Janie:
“Janie, you and I just got off our call. And I am now sure I know what to do to get my life back again. Thank you.”
“My review is this, I should have used Janie’s coaching call from the beginning instead of what was offered elsewhere. I now see how her information is more detailed and widespread. She mentions she has been doing this for two decades, and that is clear by what I learned. I am a 43 year old male.”
“This is my second call with Janie. She’s detailed. Has a lot of knowledge to help me. I’m impressed.”
“I am a health professional and have been using Janie Bowthorpe as a coach for my own issues. She has been precise, all encompassing in her knowledge, and supportive. For our latest call, I realize I was wrong not to get more testing that she mentioned that patients do. My wife also plans on doing a call with her. I appreciate it, Janie.’
“Janie, seriously. You are kind in the call and I appreciate that. You also clearly know your stuff from doing this so long. Thank you for doing what you do. “
“I have just finished a call with Janie and I can attest that she knows what she’s talking about much better than someone I’ve used in a particular Facebook group. I have sent this to her to use on her coaching call page”.
“Wow. I didn’t realize I would get so much valuable information to help me get well. I understand my cortisol problem and treatment better. Thank you Janie. It has made a difference.”
“I am sending this to Janie one week after our call to tell everyone that I was better equipped for my appointment with my doctor. I knew what I needed to say to her and what I wanted done. Thanks, Janie”
“I have used Janie’s coaching calls three times now, and I am better. I took notes that have helped me after the call. Janie is knowledgeable and now I see why others recommended her to me.”
“Thank you. I got more from you than I’ve gotten anywhere. Keep up the good work you do.”
