Privacy and Terms and Conditions.
Terms and conditions.
Full payment for hypnotherapy sessions and other therapy treatments must be paid in advance within 24 hours of booking. Otherwise you may lose your appointment.
You will receive a confirmation of your appointment when payment has been received. This confirms your commitment to your therapy.
Payment can be made over the phone by debit or credit card, by PayPal or by bank transfer.
At least 48 hours notice of cancellations must be given in order to receive a full refund. After this time you will be liable for the full cost of your appointment. This may seem harsh but I have many clients who do not show which means I can’t offer the appointment to someone else and also leaves me liable for room rental costs.
Cancellations can be made by email, telephone or text.
Changes to your appointment day or time can be made as long as they meet the cancellation guidelines.
On the day of your appointment
Therapy sessions are usually between 60 to120 minutes depending on the therapy chosen. Please allow a little longer for your first appointment.
It is really important that you arrive on time for your appointment as lateness means we have less time. I also may have a client after you. If you are going to be late then let me know and I will do the best I can to accommodate you.
Your therapy outcomes
Therapy outcomes rely on the therapist and client working together to achieve the desired results. You must be motivated and ready to make the changes required and be able to do some tasks and simple homework. The simple tasks and homework help to consolidate the work we do in sessions. By being committed you will greatly enhance your chances of a successful outcome.
From time to time, depending on the information you give me, I may need to contact your doctor to let them know that we will be working together.
By signing up to a Hypnobirthing course with Elizabeth Hollywood you are agreeing to the following.
A non-refundable deposit of £50 is required to confirm your place on your chosen course.
The balance of the course fee must be paid in full 2 weeks before the first session of the course.
Where the course is booked within 2 weeks of the first session, the full fee is due on the day of booking.
Course fees are non-refundable except under exceptional circumstances.
Payment is made for a full course as advertised and not for individual sessions.
Flexible payment terms must be agreed in advance.
In the event of cancellation by a participant prior to the start of the course, the deposit is non-refundable.
In the event of cancellation by a participant after one or more sessions of the course have been completed, no refund will be given.
In the unlikely event of cancellation of a course by myself, attempts will be made to reschedule. If this is not possible, or alternative dates cannot be agreed, a full refund of the total fee will be given.
In the unlikely event of cancellation of an individual session by me, attempts will be made to reschedule. If this is not possible, or if alternative dates cannot be agreed, a refund for sessions not yet taken will be given. If it is not possible for all couples within a group to agree an alternative date then provision will be made for individual couples. The refunded fee per session will be calculated as the total fee, after deduction of the £50 deposit, divided by the number of sessions in the course. No refund will be made for sessions already taken.
If for any reason in person course cannot take place for example extreme weather or government guidelines, the event will either be rescheduled or the course will take place over live video link.
For participants taking a private one to one course, 48 hours notice must be given in changing appointment dates or times. Where this is not done the participants will be liable for the session fee calculated as the total fee, after deduction of the £50 deposit, divided by the number of sessions in the course. Exceptions may be made in exceptional circumstances.
Participants take part in Hypnobirthing sessions with the understanding that the content of the course is in no way intended to be taken as medical advice. Participants should seek the advice of a health-care provider to answer any health-related or pregnancy-related issues surrounding their pregnancy, their labour or their birth. Elizabeth Hollywood can not be held responsible for any decisions that you make regarding your pregnancy and birth.
Any questions or doubts you have about you the use of Hypnobirthing should be taken up with your health care professionals.
Taking a Hypnobirthing course in no way guarantees a certain birth outcome.
The resources given to you on a Hypnobirthing course with Elizabeth Hollywood are for your own personal use and should not be distributed to third parties. Again, these do not represent medical advice.
The Baby Massage Course has been added as an extra free resource and so no refunds are given if you do not take part in the Baby Massage Workshop. An online course will be available if you are not able to attend in person.
Hollywood Therapy does not guarantee treatment outcomes. It is important that you are committed to making the necessary changes needed in order for a successful outcome.
Appointments will be confirmed when payment/deposit has been received.
Appointments may be changed or cancelled by Hollywood Therapy due to Government advice and to protect therapist and client health and wellbeing. In this case any advanced payment made will be refunded, less therapy sessions already taken.
