Terms of Service
It's important to note that the effectiveness of RTT has not been extensively studied and more research is needed to confirm its benefits.
Also, as with any therapeutic approach, individual results may vary.

All Fees are due to be paid 72 hours before the session. The fee for your session will be agreed upon following the Free Discover Call.
All professional fees will be disclosed to you before booking. Fees are subject to review and may increase from time to time.
Session fees are calculated and based on my time and professional expertise and are not a guarantee of a successful outcome.
You will always receive confirmation of the professional fees before booking.
I generally use Hypnotherapy for most of my processes. On some occasions, clients experience resistance to relax into hypnosis. In such instances, an additional session may be required which will attract additional fees.
Please visit the FAQ's page to make sure you understand the process and are completely comfortable with the commitment required.
Additional charges apply for in-person sessions. Please be sure to confirm if this applies to you and what the charges are.
CONTACT BETWEEN US
Any contact between sessions will be by email or other agreed method during office hours only (Mon-Friday 09:00-17:00 Ex. Bank Holidays). Any messages received outside of these hours will be dealt with during office hours only.
MEDICAL OR PSYCHOLOGICAL CONDITIONS
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 or any form of psychosis.
Failure to disclose any medical issues may result in regression and Umar's Therapy Ltd will not be held liable.
ATTENDING YOUR SESSIONS
Please ensure that you are available at your session start time. 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.
OUTCOME OF SESSIONS
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.
