Terms and conditions
The LCwJB schedule will be arranged between LCwJB and the client and can be booked up to three months in advance. LCwJB will recommend the frequency of LCwJB sessions based on a professional assessment of the client’s requirements. This recommendation, or plan, is not binding and may be altered and adjusted throughout the LCwJB journey by mutual agreement, in accordance with the terms set out in this agreement.
The number and frequency of LCwJB sessions will be agreed at the start of LCwJB between LCwJB and the client, and confirmed by LCwJB by email. Where no specific number is agreed sessions will be provided on a session by session basis.
In return for the fees payable by the client (or by a third party on their behalf), LCwJB agrees to provide the service as described below and in accordance with the terms and conditions set out below. The client agrees to pay fees for the service on the terms and conditions set out below (in situations where a third party pays the fees, the third party counts as an agent acting on behalf of the client).
The date that the first LCwJB session takes place shall be deemed to be the start date for the service. Where any client is unhappy with any of the terms and conditions they can contact LCwJB to discuss any concerns and see if they can be resolved before the first LCwJB session. Participation by any client in the first LCwJB session constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Format of session
Face to face (venue by mutual agreement), via Skype, telephone or other format where such is agreed. Unless otherwise agreed, for Skype and telephone sessions the client is responsible for calling LCwJB at agreed times. LCwJB is responsible for ensuring that LCwJB is available for sessions at agreed times.
The length of each session is as agreed between LCwJB and the client before LCwJB sessions commence.
In accordance with LCwJB's current per hour fee or fee for a programme of sessions, or any other such fee as shall be agreed and notified to the client. LCwJB will confirm the fees in writing, usually by email or text, unless this is impractical. The number of sessions for which payment is required in advance will be agreed before LCwJB sessions commence.
LCwJB may agree to provide additional LCwJB sessions after completion of the initial agreed session(s). These terms and conditions will apply to any additional sessions so provided and the per hour fee will remain the same as originally agreed except where LCwJB notifies the client in writing by email or text of a change to the fee or to any other term or condition in accordance with the section in these terms and conditions headed “Variation of terms and conditions”.
Dates and times of sessions
The date and time of the first LCwJB session, and any subsequent session, will be agreed between LCwJB and the client by phone, email or text and confirmed by LCwJB by email or text.
Sessions can only be rearranged in accordance with the section in these terms and conditions headed “Rearranging sessions”.
Fees can be paid by cash or bank transfer, details for which can be provided on request. Where receipts are requested by the client, they will be sent by email unless otherwise requested.
Fees are payable in advance of each LCwJB session unless otherwise agreed. Where payment has not been received by LCwJB in advance of a LCwJB session LCwJB is not obliged to provide the session.
Where payment is required on receipt of invoice rather than in advance, a charge may be levied for late payment.
LCwJB may assign the client tasks or exercises to complete between LCwJB sessions. There is no obligation on the client to complete these items of “homework”, however not doing so may slow the client’s progress in achieving the desired outcomes.
The client may contact LCwJB by phone, email or text between sessions to seek clarification regarding anything arising from a LCwJB session or for administrative purposes (eg where a client needs to rearrange a LCwJB session or to make a payment). Additional LCwJB sessions can also be provided between previously sessions at an additional charge. LCwJB will always advise a client in advance if the nature of a client’s contact is likely to incur an additional charge and no such charges will be imposed without the client’s agreement.
If a client needs to rearrange a LCwJB session they should provide at least 48 hours notice. No refunds will be given to clients for unused LCwJB sessions unless this has been given. In exceptional circumstances LCwJB may need to rearrange a LCwJB session. In those instances LCwJB will also give the client 48 hours notice where practical.
Where a client pays for a session or sessions in advance they must have the LCwJB session(s) that they have paid for within six months of the payment or their fee is forfeited.
Personal information or business information supplied by clients in LCwJB sessions will be treated as confidential. It will not be disclosed to a third party without the client’s prior permission, save where required by law or where action might be necessary to prevent harm to the client or someone else.
In exceptional circumstances, such as illness or unavailability due to bereavement or other commitments, inappropriate behaviour by the client, actual or potential conflict of interest, or other reasons, LCwJB can decide to terminate the service to the client early or refuse or be unable to provide further LCwJB sessions to the client. In such a circumstance the client will be given reasonable notice of termination by LCwJB where practicable and will be refunded any advance payments made for LCwJB sessions not yet provided.
LCwJB will seek to enable the client to you use their mind to create their desired personal and / or professional results, coach themselves and feel better. Remarkable results can be achieved where clients follow a clear plan in a committed way. However, the client has sole responsibility for taking important decisions in their personal and / or professional life. LCwJB has no liability for any loss incurred by any client, whether financial or otherwise, following commencement of LCwJB sessions, or for any perceived failure by the client, whether justified or otherwise, to achieve a material improvement in quality of life or business or to achieve their desired outcomes or goals.
Variation of terms and conditions
Where an initial number of sessions is agreed, any changes to these terms and conditions intended to take effect prior to the conclusion of those initial number of sessions will only have effect if agreed by both LCwJB and the client and confirmed by LCwJB in writing by email. In other cases, LCwJB may change any of these terms or conditions including the per hour fee by giving the client one week’s notice in writing by email of the change(s). If following receipt of such notification of change, the client no longer wishes to proceed with further LCwJB sessions, they may withdraw from the service immediately by giving notice in writing by email and they will then be entitled to a full refund of any fees paid in advance for LCwJB sessions not yet provided. Such notice will be effective on receipt by LCwJB.
This contract is governed by the law of England whose courts have exclusive jurisdiction in relation to any dispute, disagreement, proceedings or legal claim of any nature relating to the service provided or the contract.
