If you want to see these specific terms, please visit the relevant webpage for the programme or look at the services description I have sent you in an email or request it from me.

 

All these documents form part of this contract as though set out in full here.

 

2Information I give you

 

2.1Certain sections of this contract only apply to you and me if you are a ‘consumer’, that is if you are an individual acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside your business or profession. By law, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that I must give you certain key information before a legally binding contract of sale between you and me is made (see the summary box below). I shall give you this information in a clear and understandable way either in this contract or the relevant programme or service description we agree between us.

 

 

 

I shall give you information on:

the main characteristics of the services you are buying

 

who I am, where I am based and how you can contact me

 

the price of the services

 

the arrangements for payment, carrying out the services and the time by which I shall carry out the services

 

how to exercise your right to cancel the contract in the cooling off period if you are a consumer

 

my complaint handling policy

 

 

 

3Ordering services from me

 

3.1Below, I set out how a legally binding contract to buy services between you and me is made:

 

3.2You sign up for my services either on the site by clicking on the relevant payment link or I shall send you the link by email. Please read and check your order carefully before submitting it.

 

3.2.1When you place your order for services at the end of the online checkout process by clicking on the payment link on my site, or by clicking on the link I send to you by email, I shall acknowledge it by email. This acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.

 

3.2.2Any quotation given by me before you place an order for services is not a legally binding offer by me to supply such services. Any prices set out in a quotation remain valid for 14 days.

 

3.2.3When you decide to place an order for services with me, this is when you make a legal offer to buy such services from me.

 

3.2.4I may contact you to say that I do not accept your order, for example if I do not think my services are right for you or there has been a mistake in the pricing or description of the services, or my circumstances have changed since I gave you the quotation for the services .

 

3.2.5I shall only accept your order when I confirm this to you by sending you a confirmation email or start to provide the services, whichever happens earlier. At this point:

 

(a)a legally binding contract will be in place between you and me, and

 

(b)I shall start to carry out the services as set out in the programme description on this website or in a services description agreed between us.

 

4Carrying out the services

 

4.1If you are a consumer you have protection under consumer rights legislation, including that the services must be carried out with reasonable care and skill.

 

4.2I shall carry out the services in accordance with the Code of Ethics and standards of behaviour set out by the International Coach Federation (‘ICF’).

 

4.3I shall carry out the services within the time period which is set out in the relevant programme or services description.

 

4.4All coaching sessions (including rearranged sessions) must be taken within the timeframe specified in the programme description or services description or they will expire.

 

4.5You can rearrange any two coaching sessions during a coaching programme providing you give me at least 24 hours’ notice. If you give me less than 24 hours’ notice, fail to turn up for a session or have already rearranged 2 sessions in a coaching programme, you will be deemed to have taken the session and you will not be able to reschedule it or entitled to any compensation for missing it. If you are more than 15 minutes later for a session you will be treated as a ‘no show’.

 

4.6All sessions take place remotely via the means of communication agreed with you in advance.

 

4.7Unless we agree otherwise, communication between sessions shall be by email and you agree to adhere to that method. You will be able to send messages at any time and I shall listen to and respond to them on the next working day (Monday to Friday excluding UK Bank Holidays) between 9 am and 8 pm UK time.

 

4.8Please note that I may record our calls for training purposes and administration purposes and by entering into this contract with me you consent to the recording of our calls for these purposes.

 

4.9My carrying out of the services might be affected by events beyond my reasonable control. If so, there might be a delay before I can restart the services. I shall make reasonable efforts to limit the effect of any of those events, I shall keep you informed of the circumstances and I shall try to restart the services as soon as those events have been fixed. Examples of events which might be beyond my reasonable control include illness, IT issues and problems with internet connectivity or if you change the services you require from me and I have to do extra preparation.

 

5Your responsibilities

 

5.1You will pay the price for the services in accordance with the programme or services description.

 

5.2You will provide me with such information and assistance (and ensure that any information is complete and accurate) as I reasonably need to provide the services.

 

5.3Coaching is not therapy or counselling. It may involve all areas of your life. You acknowledge that deciding how to handle any issues which may arise, the choices you make in relation to them and whether or not you follow through on any agreed action is exclusively your responsibility. For this reason, although I fully expect great results to come from our coaching sessions, I cannot guarantee any specific outcomes or that all clients will achieve the same results. The results are entirely dependent on your commitment and the effort you put into the programme and the actions we agree.

 

5.4You agree to communicate honestly with me, be open to feedback and assistance and create the time and energy to participate fully in the programme.

 

5.5My role is to offer you guidance and accountability and help you make positive lifestyle changes in order to make progress towards your goals. The information I provide to you is not medical advice and is not intended to take the place of seeing licensed health professionals.

 

5.6Coaching does not treat mental disorders and is not a substitute for counselling, mental health care or medical treatment of any kind. By entering into this agreement you confirm that you will not use it in place of any form of counselling, therapy or medical treatment.

 

5.7If you are currently receiving treatment from a doctor or other healthcare professional, by entering into this agreement you confirm that you have consulted with this person regarding the advisability of working with a coach and that this person is aware of and supports your decision to proceed with the coaching programme described in the relevant programme or services description. In these circumstances, I reserve the right to request a referral letter from the person who is treating you.

 

5.8You will keep me informed of any changes to your medical health or personal circumstances.

 

6Charges and payment

 

6.1The price for the services is set out in the programme or services description. If you require additional coaching beyond that included in a programme, it may be available on request at the hourly rate of £150.

 

6.2Subject to 6.3, I usually require full payment in advance in order to provide the services. For some programmes or services I may agree to payment by monthly instalments, in which case a supplementary fee may be chargeable. The relevant programme or services description will state if I have agreed to accept payment by instalments. If I agree to accept payment by instalments and you fail to make any of the instalment payments on the due date then I shall invoice you immediately for the whole of the outstanding balance and payment for that invoice will be due by return.

 

6.3If you sign up for my monthly ongoing coaching programme, payment is monthly in advance.

 

6.4The fees are non-refundable except for:

 

6.4.1if you are a consumer, your right to a ‘cooling off’ period as described below; and

 

6.4.2where I cancel a programme other than under 12.3 below, you are entitled to a partial refund for sessions which you have paid for in advance and which you have not received.

 

In all other circumstances, I am not able to refund to you any of the payments you have made, even where you do not complete your sessions with me, as payment is for the programme as a whole, not individual sessions. This is a reflection of the amount of preparation I need to put into the programme to make it most effective for you and the amount of time I shall dedicate and set aside for preparing for and attending our sessions together. This policy also helps you with your own accountability and commitment to improving your life through my coaching programme.

 

In view of my clear no-refund policy, I do not tolerate any type of chargeback threat or actual chargeback from your credit or debit card company. In the event that a chargeback is placed on a purchase or I receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase, or after the end of the cooling off period if you are a consumer, I reserve the right to report the incident to credit reporting agencies or to any other entity for inclusion in any chargeback database or for listing as non-payment on your account which could have a negative impact on your credit rating.

 

6.5Payment is via the payment button on this website or as agreed between us.

 

6.6If any of your payments are not paid on the due date, I may charge interest on any balance outstanding at the rate of 4 percentage points a year above HSBC Bank plc’s base rate.

 

7Cooling off period for consumers

 

7.1If you are a consumer you have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. You are a consumer if you are an individual acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside your business.

 

7.2The cancellation period will expire 14 days after the date you click through to make your first payment.

 

7.3However, if you confirm to me you wish me to start to provide the services during the 14 day cancellation period then you lose your right to cancel. At this point my refund policy set out in clause 6.3 will apply.

 

7.4If you cancel this contract in accordance with the cooling off period in clause 7.1, I shall reimburse to you all payments received from you promptly and using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless we have expressly agreed otherwise.

 

8Intellectual property

 

If I provide you with any materials, whether digital or printed, any intellectual property in those materials belongs to me and unless we agree otherwise you can only use those materials for your own personal use and you may not share them with third parties.

 

9How I may use your personal information

9.1.1provide the services;

9.2All information shared by you will be kept strictly confidential, except when releasing such information is required by law and/or where I consider it necessary to do so because of concerns of risk to yourself or others.

 

9.3I shall not give your personal information to any third party unless you agree to it.

 

10Confidential information

10.2Where you participate in any group sessions, for example as part of a group coaching programme, you agree to keep strictly confidential any information shared by participants in those group sessions and not to share it with any third parties. You will not use the confidential information of any participant of a group session for your own benefit except with the explicit consent of that participant.

 

10.3The obligations in clauses 10.1 and 10.2 will not apply to information which:

 

10.3.1has ceased to be confidential through no fault of either party;

 

10.3.2was already in the possession of the recipient before being disclosed by the other party; or

 

10.3.3has been lawfully received from a third party who did not acquire it in confidence.

 

10.4Your and my confidentiality obligations under this clause will continue after termination of this agreement.

 

11Resolving problems

 

11.1In the unlikely event that there is a problem with the services, please contact me as soon as possible and give me a reasonable opportunity to sort out any problems with you and reach a positive outcome.

 

11.2I may at my option vary or re-perform the services if there is a problem and the terms of this agreement will apply to any re-performed services.

12End of the contract

 

12.1If a programme or services description specifies a length of time for services to be provided, then subject to clause 12.2 below, the services will terminate at the end of that timeframe.

 

12.2For monthly ongoing coaching, either you or I may terminate the services by written notice to each other at least two weeks before the next scheduled call. The upfront payment for that month will not be refunded and you will still have access to your coaching call and email for that period.

 

12.3Either you or I may terminate the services and this agreement immediately if:

 

12.3.1the other party commits any material breach of the terms of this agreement and, in the case of a breach capable of being resolved, the breach is not resolved within 30 days of a written request to do so. The written request must expressly refer to this clause and state that this contract will be terminated if the breach is not resolved; or

 

12.3.2the other party commits or threatens to commit or is threatened with any act of insolvency under the Insolvency Act 1986.

 

12.4If this contract is ended it will not affect my right to receive any money which you owe to me under this contract and it will not operate to affect any provisions that expressly or by implication survive termination.

13.1Except for any legal responsibility that I cannot exclude in law (such as for death or personal injury), I am not legally responsible for any:

16Third party rights

 

16.1No one other than a party to this contract has any right to enforce any term of this contract.

REIKI

Reiki distance sessions are conducted via energetic connection ONLY meaning they are done entirely offline - there is no video or telephone connection.  

We don't communicate in person during the session because this allows me to focus on your treatment and you will receive energy for the entire scheduled time without any distractions, which is more beneficial for you 

I am always available for questions via email before and afterwards
 

It is preferable if you find somewhere comfortable to relax for the duration of your session so you are able to focus on the experience, though regardless of where you are and what you are doing, you will still receive the Reiki energy and its benefits 

You may wish to play some relaxing music though this is optional

Please send me your full name (if different from the name you booked with) and, if you feel called to you can also send a photograph of yourself, though this is not mandatory

 


During your treatment, you may experience feelings of gentle pressure, heat, cold,  pins and needles and visual imagery

This is nothing to be alarmed about; it is simply a sign that Reiki is moving and doing its work. 

It is also common for people to not sense anything, other than a feeling of peace and relaxation, and not experiencing these things is not a sign that Reiki is not working

Once booked and paid for the session is non refundable and non transferable

By booking and paying for the session you confirm that you are over the age of 18, and that you have read, and that you understand, acknowledge and agree to all terms and disclaimers

I reserve the right to refuse my services at any time, and in such instances, my maximum liability to you will be a full refund of the amount which you have paid for the relevant service. 

 

Reiki is a natural method of energy balancing for the purpose of relaxation

 

Energy work including Reiki is not a substitute for medical or psychological diagnosis or treatment. Please continue following advice from your medical practitioner at all times

Kerri Williams is not a medical doctor, licensed counsellor or medical practitioner and has not represented herself in that manner.

Kerri Williams does not diagnose conditions, or illnesses, prescribe medication,

perform medical treatments and will not interfere with a licensed medical

professional.

You must see a medical professional for any physical or psychological ailments you may have.

Kerri Williams has made no promises to me as to the outcome of a Reiki

distance session.
