Terms & Conditions/GDPR/Privacy Policy

Terms & Conditions of booking - including information related to Covid-19:

  • Kindly arrive promptly for your appointment - I will meet you 5 minutes before your appointment time in the car park.

  • Late arrival may eat into your treatment time.

  • If for any reason outside of my control I am running behind I will notify you as soon as possible.

  • You will be required to wear a mask/face covering for your time on the premises and to wash or sanitise your hands on arrival and leaving.

  • Kindly do not attend for an appointment under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

  • No other services are provided other than those listed on my website.

  • Payment can be made via paypal prior to appointment or in person at the appointment.

Cancellation Policy:

I value your time and in the unlikely event that I need to cancel your appointment I will give you as much notice as possible, however during the Covid-19 pandemic, should I have a raised temperature on the day of your appointment or be feeling unwell with any of the symptoms of the virus, this may mean that I will have to cancel at late notice to protect you and your contacts.

I would ask that if you need to cancel an appointment you give me a minimum of 24 hours notice so that I can offer the time to another client. However, for a raised temperature or any Covid symptoms (or just feeling generally unwell) that may arise on the day of your appointment I accept that cancellation on the day may be necessary.  

For cancellations within 24 hours of an appointment that aren't Covid/illness related or other emergency situations then full payment will be requested as it's very difficult to offer the appointment to someone else at such late notice. 

If you are unable to attend your appointment it may or may not be possible to send somebody else in your place, kindly contact Robyn first to enquire.
