Terms & Conditions

The initial consultation is free of charge. However, any subsequent agreed hypnotherapy session appointments booked with Graham Stuart of Mind Body Hypnosis will be based on the following conditions: Each single session length will be at my discretion, depending on the situation and the issue being dealt with. Although dramatic results can sometimes be achieved in one session, most conditions usually require a series of hypnotherapy sessions (apart Smoking Cessation, which is one session) to get the best lasting results. Typically this will range from 2-4 sessions but it is important to remember that each person is different. results may vary from person to person depending on individual circumstances.

The initial sessions will be agreed with the client in advance (following the Free initial consultation) and can be adjusted throughout the process as appropriate.

Should the client choose to stop a course of hypnotherapy where an pre-agreed number of sessions are required i.e. weight loss programme, fertility programme etc, that have been paid for in advance, no refunds shall be given should the client not continue to attend the sessions.

Payment Methods

Cash: If paying in cash for your sessions, payment must be made at the end of each session.

Paypal:  You can pay online (see above payment options) for your deposit and hypnotherapy session/s via this is website, using PayPal (using your normal credit or debit card).

If sessions are booked in advance and not attended for any reason their will be a £25.00 charge for each missed appointment. This is because the alotted time has been reserved for your specific session and this time cannot be recovered.

Please note that Cheques cannot be accepted.

Deposit & Cancellation Policy

If any hypnotherapy sessions are booked (following the initial free standard consultation), a £25 deposit is required to book a time slot for each hypnotherapy session. This is deducted from the outstanding balance of each session booked. However, in the event that any hypnotherapy session is cancelled by the client without giving a minimum 24 hours notice or if the client fails to attend the allocated session slot, the £25.00 deposit is non-refundable. In the unlikely event that the hypnotherapist cancels the appointment the deposit will be offset against the client’s rebooked appointment.

Deposits can either be paid in cash following the free consultation or through this website.

Code of Conduct and Ethics

We treat all of our clients with respect and operate in an ethical manner. In return we expect the same level of respect and these terms and conditions are set iut to avoid any misunderstandings and for the mutual benefit of both parties.
