Cancellations and Refunds
We're unable to offer refunds if you want to cancel your training course unless you cancel your booking by phone within 24 hours of making the original booking. You will receive a refund excluding any Paypal/Stripe or credit card charges or other administrative fees, and an additional cancellation fee per booking will be charged at £20. Refunds will be made to the Paypal account, 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. You can however transfer your course to another date, if transferred more than 48 hours by phone, please read below for more details.
In exceptional circumstances such as a bereavement, we will offer you a transfer onto a later course date with no penalty fees if changed before 48 hours by phone. Under 48 hours you will need to cover the room hire. This decision is made at our sole discretion and will only be considered if the bereavement relates to an immediate family member.
The following charges will apply if you wish to transfer your booking to a later course date:
The course transfer must be organised more than 48 hours by phone before the scheduled course date. Course transfers under 48 hours will be charged a £40 re-booking fee/or the cost of the room hire.
A £40 re-booking fee will apply If you have purchased your course at a discounted price you will have to pay the full course price.
The choice of course date must be specified at the time of transfer, or the instruction will be considered a cancellation.
The option to transfer a course date can only be used once, after which any additional request will be considered a cancellation. All outstanding payments will remain due, irrespective of the number of working days notice given for the cancellation.
Travel or accommodation expenses cannot reimbursed and refunds will not be offered for cancellations outside our control, including adverse weather conditions, flooding or industrial action.

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.
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.
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/or Sarah Lane Therapies 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.

2. All courses, fees and discounts are subject to change without prior notice.
