Appointment Postponements and Cancellations
In person training and behavioural consultation
Working outdoors and with potential for disruption due to poor weather ever present I would appreciate being informed of any intent to postpone an appointment. I reserve the right to cancel/postpone due to weather conditions that might make travel dangerous.
It is often possible to work under cover or in a stable or to discuss theory and plan future training. I have a catalogue of videos and slides that can support theory learning in these situations.
In the event of a cancellation less than 48 hours from the appointed date and time of your booking you will be subject to a charge that is the full outstanding amount that would have been charged for your booking, less any mileage charges.
Cancellations of behaviour consultations made longer than 48 hours from the appointed date and time of your booking but where preliminary work has already been carried out will incur an administration charge of £25.
Any cancellation made by me will not result in any charge to you and if the session cannot be rebooked will result in a full refund.
Online assessments and behaviour consultations.
We will send you an online meeting link no less than 2 hours before the agreed service is scheduled to take place be that a Behavioural Consultation or Training Session or other named service at the agreed price. Payment is made at the time of booking the appointment unless otherwise arranged. Should you fail to attend a booked online Training Session full charges will apply. If you fail to attend or cancel an online Behaviour Consultation meeting a £25 charge will be incurred. If I have to cancel an online appointment there will be a full refund or reschedule of the session.
