Privacy and cancellation policy.


Terms and conditions.


Full payment for hypnotherapy sessions and other therapy treatments must be paid within 48 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 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. Extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration.


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 50 to 60 minutes. 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.




Full fees are due on within 48 hours of booking your course and can be paid by bank transfer or by credit or debit card by telephone.
