Booking Terms & Conditions

COVID-19 POLICY (September 2021)

If you are unable to attend a session due to displaying symptoms of COVID-19, or having had a positive COVID-19 test in the last 14 days, you must notify immediately by email. The aim will be to then reschedule your session within 30 days of the original date. No additional deposit payment will be required unless the session needs to be rebooked outside of that 30 day timeframe.

If another lockdown period is entered into, either nationally or locally, deposits already paid will be held and will be valid against a new date as soon as the lockdown period is over. Deposit invoices not yet paid will be cancelled and your session will also be cancelled. Please get in touch to book a new session after lockdown is over​

 
Payments

All bookings, whether made via the online booking system, email, text/iMessage/WhatsApp, Facebook, or directly in person require payment in FULL in order to be confirmed. When booking via the online booking system, payment can be made by Credit/Debit Card, PayPal, or in installments with Klarna. Bookings made by email, text/iMessage/WhatsApp, Facebook, or directly in person will also be required to pay in full by Credit/Debit Card, PayPal, or Klarna via a one-time link emailed/text/messaged to you. Only when this is paid in full will your session(s) and date(s) be confirmed. One-time payment links should be paid by the date specified when it is sent to you. If it is not paid by this date, your session(s) and date(s) will be cancelled.

Rescheduling

If you need to reschedule a booking, you will need to get in touch as soon as possible. See the below timeframes to understand if and when a new payment will be required;

If you wish to reschedule your session to another date in the same month of the original session, you may not be required to provide a new payment. This is discretionary and assessed on a case-by-case basis.

If you wish to reschedule your session to another date in a different month, you will need to request the new dates and pay again.
