Please read these terms and conditions which apply to the provision of ‘my’ (Empowered Life/ Tessa Brock) professional services. By making an appointment, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions. If you are unable or unwilling to agree to these terms and conditions, then you should not book an appointment or continue with this course of therapy. All decisions are final and are subject to Empowered Life/Tessa Brock’s discretion. 

RTT HYPNOTHERAPY Section (AnCORE below and both near end)


You may be offered a free 20 minute online initial consultation. No therapy will be provided during the consultation.

The purpose of this initial consultation is to build rapport and to see if ‘the client’s’ (your) presenting problem is suitable for services being offered. During these calls, estimates of the number of sessions required to deal with your presenting issue are given on the basis of the information presented at that time. Estimates are only rough guidelines and are subject to change.


Sessions must be paid for in full at the time of booking. This should be done through the website booking and payment system. Please take note of specific refund policies as some of your payment will be retained for both cancellations and rescheduling.


Cancellation & rescheduling

If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, please provide as much notice as possible. Notification must be made via email or phone call at least 48 hours prior. 

Cancellation: A 90% refund will be issued for cancellations up to 48 hours of the appointment. A 50% refund will be issued for cancellations 48 hours to 24 hours before the appointment. No refunds will be issued for cancellations within 24 hours of the session appointment. 

Rescheduling an appointment within 48 hours is subject to a booking fee of 10% of the cost of the session.

No refunds will be issued for no-shows.


No refunds will be issued for cancellations within 24 hours of sessions.

Session fees are for my time and professional expertise and are not a guarantee of a successful outcome. Therefore, no refunds will be given for any sessions where you have attended and paid for the session.

Where a discount package or therapy program has been booked and paid for in advance, if you choose to discontinue your therapy process before attending all the sessions, a pro rata refund will be issued after deduction of the full standard session fee for any sessions you have attended. However, the cancellation of these sessions are also subject to the above conditions of refunds i.e. you booked a package of three sessions. You attended one session but decide to cancel the next two sessions. Your first session cannot be refunded, and because your second session is due to start within 48 – 24 hours, you will only be refunded 50% of that session cost, the third session booked further in time will be refunded at 90%.

Session Fees

All professional fees will be disclosed to you prior to booking. My professional fees are subject to review and may increase from time to time. You will always receive confirmation of the professional fees before booking.

Payment Methods

Payment may be made online via credit/debit card or PAYPAL™. Cash and cheques will not be accepted without prior agreement.


Any contact between sessions will be by telephone, email or letter during office hours only Mon – Thurs: 09:00 – 17:00 . Any messages received outside of these hours will be dealt with during office hours only.


I may ask questions about your medical history to establish any contra-indications to treatment. This will also help to assess whether your health is affecting (or being affected by) the therapeutic goals you wish to achieve. Please update me of any medical changes during your course of therapy, or if you are returning to therapy after a period of absence.

If you are receiving care or treatment from any medical, healthcare or therapy practitioner, e.g. GP, Psychologist, Psychiatrist or Counsellor, you may be asked to seek their permission before any therapy sessions can commence.

Please note that I will be unable to offer my professional services if you suffer from epilepsy, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia or any form of psychosis.

I will not be held liable for the client’s failure to fully and truthfully disclose any medical or psychological conditions that may affect or be affected by the services or treatment that I provide.


You must be at least 18 years old to participate in online sessions. Clients under the age of 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and will be seen in-person.


Please ensure that you are available at your session start time. This means that it is your responsibility to make sure your internet and laptop/device is working before our session. If you are running late, please let me know as soon as possible. I will do my best to make a full session available, however, as the ability to do this will depend on bookings after your session, this cannot be guaranteed.


Hypnotherapy recordings should not be listened to whilst driving, operating machinery, or undertaking any other activity where concentration is required. Any recording provided is for your personal use only and must not be shared, lent, copied or sold under any circumstances. 

In order for you to achieve the full benefit of your session, you agree to listen to your recording at least once per day for at least the next 21 days, immediately following your session.


The agreement to work on the issues presented by you in no way implies or guarantees the resolution of your presenting issue(s). No outcome can or will be guaranteed. However, I will always endeavour to use my best efforts and skills to work towards your goals and intended outcomes. The outcome also depends on your commitment and effort.


During the course of any therapy sessions, I will treat you with respect and not abuse the trust you place in me. I will use best practice at all times in our mutual interest. In return, you undertake not to harm yourself, or any other person, including me, or any property belonging to either me or any other person.

You agree not to attend sessions under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs, except those medications which have been prescribed by your doctor. If you do attend any sessions under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs, or demonstrate violent or abusive behaviour, I will cancel the session and may refuse to see you for any further sessions without refunding any payment already made.


All contact, including sessions, telephone conversations and emails, will be conducted in confidence and may be recorded. Prior to any recording, your agreement will be sought. All recordings, conversations and notes will remain confidential, except in the following circumstances:

  1. Where you give permission for confidentiality to be broken
  1. Where I am compelled by a court of law
  1. Where the information is of a nature that confidentiality cannot be maintained, for example:
  • The possibility of harm to yourself or others exists
  • In cases of fraud or crime
  • When minors (under 18 years old) are involved
  1. Where a referring GP or other healthcare professional requires a report. A copy of the report will be available on request.
