You can book your preferred appointment 4 hours in advance and cancel and change anytime free of charge, however in case you cancel or change the date and time of your appointment within 24 hours, you are not entitled for the refund of the booking fee.
In the event we need to cancel or change the date/time of your booked appointment, and you choose not to reschedule, you are entitled to a full refund of the booking fee.
Use of Stripe online payment services:
Once you successfully booked your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email together with a questionnaire and all the relevant information you need to know prior to the video call with our consultant. We reserve the right to provide you with a consultant different to the consultant included in your confirmation email. This can be due to any unexpected unavailability of the originally booked consultant. In any case, we make sure that you receive the same level and standard of service.
In case you find that our service is not compliant with what you were promised to receive, you are entitled for the full refund of your booking fee.
Time to time we will introduce campaigns in which no booking fee will apply. You will be informed in advance of such campaigns, through our Website.
By breaching this provision, you would commit a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990.

In the event of such a breach, your right to use our Website will cease immediately.
