Cancellation and Refund Policy

Cancellation and Refund Policy.

While we really hope that you are never in a position to request a refund or cancel an appointment, we do understand that life happens and sometimes you may need to change your plans. Time is something that we can’t get back or replace, so with that in mind please note the following terms and conditions before agreeing to a session with Ruthy.

  1. Our fees: These are payable in full, in advance via BACS or the Website prior to the session unless by prior written agreement.  Fees are subject to regular review and vary depending on which service it is you require.
  2. In the event of non-advance payment and the Fee not being paid within the due date you must settle the invoice within 30 days.  Failure to do this will incur a £60 fee and 6% interest up to 90 days, interest will be charged 6% per day after 90 days.
  3. A session: The length varies depending on what service you book. Many of the sessions are carried out via Zoom ( a bit like Skype if you haven’t already used it).  This minimises Ruthy’s emissions, saves time and ultimately costs you less than an in-person home visit.
  4. Sessions timings must be kept to, if a session starts late it will be cut short so that Ruthy can continue to be available for her other clients and responsibilities.
  5. Location: Ruthy works a lot on Zoom, you will receive login details – it is a link that will open up from your email on your phone or on your laptop or tablet. If you have a face-to-face session booked with Ruthy in person then this is by appointment only.
  6. Booking appointments: Ruthy is often with clients, preparing for or travelling for appointments – if you contact her directly through Facebook to her personal page, she may or may not pick it up.  To ensure your booking request has been received please go through the website directly here. 
  7. Email Communication: While Ruthy endeavours to reply to each and every email she receives, office hours are between Monday – Friday 9-5 pm and aims to respond to all emails within 48 hours of receipt (excluding weekends).
