Cancellations and Refunds
 
We're unable to offer refunds if you want to cancel your training course unless you cancel your booking within 24 hours of making the original booking by calling us on 020 8123 7527. You will receive a refund excluding any credit card or other administrative fees, and an additional cancellation fee per booking will be charged at £20.  Refunds will be made to the credit or debit card used to make your booking.  This also applies to bookings that have been agreed at short notice with payment to be made on the day, and for which a confirmation email has been sent.

Exceptional Circumstances

In exceptional circumstances such as a bereavement, we will offer you a transfer onto a later course date with no penalty fees.  This decision is  made at our sole discretion and will only be considered if the bereavement relates to an immediate family member, for example a partner, child, parent or sibling.  
 
Name Changes
 
Names of students may be changed on payment of a fee of £20 per student, per booking up to the day before the scheduled booking. In addition, if there is a difference between the original fee paid and the current fee available at the time the change is made, the customer will be required to pay any increase fee since the original booking. No refund will be given if the new fee is lower.

  •  A £40 re-booking fee will apply

Contraindications

We put your safety and comfort first at all times, and as with any treatment there are contraindications to consider which may affect your participation in a class or whether it is appropriate for you to attend.   Please let us know at the time of booking  if you have a medical condition, are receiving any form of medical treatment, or are taking medicines for any ongoing condition from your GP or any other medical practitioner for any reason.  If you have any concerns we are happy to cover these before the course. 

Late Arrivals
 
You are accepted onto a course on the understanding that you attend on the date and at the time specified in your confirmation email.  Classes will commence promptly at the time stated, irrespective of whether all students are present, and are not delayed for late-comers.  Tutors are not responsible for repeating notes or stages missed, and can refuse to admit you at their discretion.  If you arrive later than 30 minutes after the time specified in your confirmation email your course may have to be postponed to a later date, which will incur a £40 re-booking fee.
 
Diplomas
 
Paying for and/or attending a course does not guarantee the awarding of a diploma or certificate.  Diplomas are gained by the successful fulfilment of the criteria set out by London Therapists and its accrediting bodies, and the awarding of diplomas is at the discretion of the tutor.  In the case of a dispute the decision of  the Principal is final.  Should you lose your original diploma a replacement can be issued, at our discretion, as long as you can confirm the date(s) you attended your course.  A fee of £15 per diploma (exc P&P) is payable.
