Cancellation and Refund Policy
All fees for products and services purchased are non-refundable. If a payment plan has been agreed, The Client will be held accountable for completing the agreed payments at the agreed times.
If The Client purchases a programme which includes healing sessions and finds that he/she is unable to use the sessions within the time period for any reason, they may put their remaining sessions on hold for 2 months. Should they decide to cancel the process without completing your sessions and after the 2 month hold period is up, they will lose those sessions and will still be liable for any outstanding balance payments.
The right to change the fees/packages offered is reserved, but will always honour the agreed amount for the agreed time period of any services that were set at the beginning of our work together. However, should The Client wish to continue to work with us after the completion of the initial package, there will be no guarantee that the rates will be the same.
If the Client becomes disruptive, disrespectful, or violates the terms of the agreement, this Agreement may be terminated without refund or forgiveness of instalment payments.
Sessions can be cancelled online through the booking calendar up to 24 hours in advance.
Sessions that are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be forfeited without refund.
If The Client arrives late to the appointment, he/she will receive the remainder of your time slot without extension.
