1. For pure Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (Hypno-CBT) and Clinical Hypnotherapy sessions:

We are registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and abide by their code of ethics (please ask us for a copy if you would like to read it before we start working together) to ensure the wellbeing of all clients.

In brief, this means that you can expect a qualified and understanding therapist who we will treat you and your case with the utmost care and respect, in an atmosphere of support and trust. We will also keep your information confidential.

While the GHR does not insist we issue a disclaimer when it comes to Hypnotherapy sessions in general, they suggest we offer the following disclaimer:

"Neither the successful resolution of the problem/s presented nor the effectiveness of treatment in individual cases can be guaranteed”.

We sincerely strive to offer a best-practice service and believe in the effectiveness of what we do, supported by evidence-based results, particularly for Hypno-CBT.

Also, if you are classed by law as a minor i.e. under the age of 18, or 16 in some cases, I will in all circumstances need legal consent from a parent or guardian to offer the service sought and will need the same permission if said service is to be offered without a chaperone or parent/guardian being present.


2. For Reiki, Consciousness Coaching and other spiritually based sessions, such as past life sessions, etc

We are registered with the Spiritual Workers Association and based on their guidance, we issue the following disclaimer:

I am a Spiritualistic Service Provider. As such it is my duty to inform you that under the “Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, which came into force on 26 May 2008, which also implement the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive (UCPD) in the UK, that the Reiki, Consciousness Coaching, and other spiritually based services that you are seeking from me have either not been scientifically proven to exist or do not conform to the accepted “norm” of society at present. Therefore you should understand that you seek the said services of your own free will.

As a question of faith and trust in the service I provide I ask you to consider your own mental state when undertaking the service. If you feel you are personally vulnerable, are currently undergoing medical treatment for a mental health issue or taking antidepressants you should consult with a friend or family member and seek medical advice as to whether this service is suitable for you.

We also reserve the right to terminate any session with any person that we believe to be at risk and refer them on to their GP or another recognised institution offering help.

Please understand that you are paying for my time at the agreed amount and not for any actual or perceived results or outcomes. Furthermore the service I give can be described as subjective and under no circumstance should you act directly upon any advice given without first making a personal choice as to the validity of any such
advice. Remember you have personal responsibility for the actions in your own life. It is highly recommended that you have a witness/chaperone present when receiving a service from a member of the opposite sex.

However, you can waive this right by letting us know in writing before we start working together if you are happy and comfortable to receive this service without a chaperone.
If you are classed by law as a minor i.e. under the age of 18, or 16 in some cases, I will first in all circumstances need legal consent from a parent or guardian to offer the service sought and will need the same permission if said service is to be offered without a chaperone or parent/guardian being present.

In compliance with the Data Protection act of 1988 I keep written records that remain under lock and key for 7 years. I am also registered with the ICO (Information Commissioners Office).

It should be noted that I am a member of several self-regulating trade organisations (see above) within my chosen healing areas and have agreed to abide by all of their Codes of Professional Conduct.

If you are in any doubt as to whether you should receive any of the services that I offer, I urge you to consult fully with any relevant parties prior to engaging in this Service Contract

By reading this, you indicate that you fully understand and undertake this service willingly and fully agree to the terms of the disclaimer above.
