Online Terms and Conditions




Bookings can only be confirmed when the course fee (£200/£160 as chosen) has been paid. The balance of your course fee is due before the course starts:


If I have not received your balance when it is due, I reserve the right to offer the place to someone else.



Courses usually require a minimum of four participants to run. In the event of a course being cancelled, you will receive a full refund of your fee or have the option to transfer your fees to the next course.


Should you need to cancel, your fee will only be refunded or transferred if your place can be filled. 

Should you need to cancel on the day the course begins or beyond this point, I cannot commit to providing refunds or transfers (though individual circumstances will be taken into consideration).

I am not able to provide partial refunds if you have missed a session for any reason. You will still be able to access the resources from that session online.



It is expected that all participants are thoughtful and respectful of each other while working online. Please ensure you are participating from a quiet location without interruption from others, external noises etc. Wearing headphones can help cut out interference. I reserve the right to refuse a place to and/or to remove from an online course any person who, in my opinion, behaves in an abusive or disruptive manner or engages in any discriminatory conduct. This also applies to the one-to-one sessions. There would be no refund given if exclusion is made for these reasons. 



I cannot accept responsibility for any loss, damage or expense sustained by participants as a result of an event or circumstance whether arising from natural cause, human agency, or beyond my control.


Participation and access

The course will run online using Google Classroom. If you have any specific learning, access or other health requirements while working online, please discuss these with me prior to the start of the course. This will be give me the best chance to support your needs during the course. 


Please note that the Day and Evening Courses are run as separate courses: if you miss a Day Course session, I am unable to accommodate you in the Evening Course Session the following day.
