As indicated on this website, hypnotherapy can be remarkable in helping clients overcome a wide range of issues. However, please be aware that:
YOUR VISUAL MIND TERMS AND CONDITIONS
All that takes place within the hypnotherapy sessions is treated with respect, discretion and strict confidentiality. I will keep confidential notes, to assist with future treatment, in secure files when not in use. Your GP, family, spouse, employer or place of study etc will not know anything about your hypnotherapy sessions and neither will anything go on your medical record without your prior written consent. There are a few exceptions for legal or safety reasons including but not limited to: if you are about to cause harm to yourself, others or children. In some cases, in order to give you the best possible treatment and to further enhance the effectiveness of hypnotherapy I would ask that treatment be carried out with the knowledge of your General Practitioner or other health care professional. However this can only happen with your prior written consent.
Payment is by cash or cheque on the day or direct bank transfer in advance.
Therapeutic appointments last approximately 60 minutes unless stated otherwise.
If you opt for a package of appointments, the sessions may vary in length.
The first session is approximately 90 minutes.
Contact and support between sessions is included in the price.
Time between appointments may vary, however, package appointments should be taken within 8 weeks from start to finish unless agreed in advance with Deborah Mends.
I will endeavour to give as much notice as possible should we need to alter the timing of our session or cancel, in the event of an emergency. Once a session is booked, I reserve the right to charge in full for any cancellations with less than 24 hours notice unless you exercise your cancellation rights as explained below. You have the right to cancel any booking by prior notice in writing given within 7 days, commencing on the day after the booking is made. Unless we agree otherwise, you will not be able to cancel a booking once performance of the services has begun. You agree that performance of the services begins when you provide any information to me that I then use in preparation of our sessions.
If you arrive late for your session we will still finish at the time it was due to finish and you will be charged the full fee.
If you are undertaking a longer course of treatment, please let me know if you have any holidays planned, and I will of course do the same with you.
When possible each hypnosis session is recorded and then shared via Google Drive link, or you have the option to make your own recording. This is an ‘added extra’ service and in the unfortunate event that the session does not record well or play clearly there will be no reduction in price or refund.
You may be given audio downloads to assist you with the practice of hypnosis and self hypnosis or purely for relaxation. Audio tracks must never be listened to while driving and you should always make sure you are in a safe place when you go into hypnosis or listen to any hypnosis downloads.
All reasonable steps will be taken to ensure your safety physically and psychologically. I will refuse to see anyone under the influence of alcohol or non-prescribed drugs.
Free parking is available outside the Akin Health and Sport Clinic and in the public parking areas near my office in St Goustan.
Please consult your doctor for any medical issues. I do not give medical advice of any kind and as such if you are receiving medical treatment for any issue that you come to hypnotherapy for, please ask the permission of your doctor. Payment is for my professional time, and I do not guarantee a cure for any problem. You may be given audio downloads to assist you with the practice of hypnosis and self hypnosis or purely for relaxation. Audio tracks must never be listened to whilst driving and you should always make sure you are in a safe place when you go into hypnosis or listen to any hypnosis downloads.
I guarantee to be 100% committed to helping you to help yourself and I do my very best to give you the best possible treatment I can. However, I cannot guarantee you will achieve your desired outcome – you are the only one who can guarantee your success.
