We do not provide medical advice

The content of this Website and any service offered on this website is provided for informational and educational purposes only. It is not medical advice and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease, disorder, or medical condition. It should never replace any advice given to you by your physician or any other licensed healthcare provider. London Sleep Coach offers sleep coaching services only and does not provide counselling, medical advice, or medical treatment. Edward Gorst is not a licensed practitioner, physician, or medical professional, and offers no medical diagnoses, treatments, suggestions or counselling.

London Sleep Coach is not a replacement for other medical or mental health care and should not be solely or primarily relied upon to treat psychiatric conditions. Do not disregard professional medical advice or delay seeking care because of information you encounter within London Sleep Coach or from our services. We do not advise making any changes to your current treatment (e.g., changes to therapy or medication) before or while using services provided by London Sleep Coach without the consultation of your doctor. If you are currently taking sleep medication, there is no need to make any changes prior to using our services. If you are interested in decreasing or stopping sleep medication use, speak to your doctor about a medication tapering plan. Always seek advice from your doctor before making any changes to your current treatments. We strongly recommend that you consult a doctor if at any time you are concerned about your physical or mental health.

London Sleep Coach is not intended to provide crisis support. If you are experiencing a crisis or medical emergency, including suicidal thoughts: In the United Kingdom, call NHS 111, call your GP, or go to your nearest A&E department. For other regions, please contact your local emergency services, or go to your nearest hospital emergency room.

Insomnia symptoms are very common across a range of medical and mental health conditions including cancer, pain, depression and endocrine or hormonal changes (for example, menopause). There is good evidence that the approaches used in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy can improve sleep even in the context of medical or mental health conditions. However, it is recommended that you consult with a doctor before using London Sleep Coach services if you have an existing medical or mental health condition, or are pregnant or recently have been pregnant.

You should not consider using any services or information or guidance from London Sleep Coach if any of the following apply to you: have bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or psychosis; have untreated and unstable mental and physical health issues; plan to change your existing prescribed medication without consulting a medical professional; can’t read or understand English; have any hearing or visual impairments; you’re experiencing a medical emergency including suicidal thoughts.

  • Definition of sleep coaching: You understand that sleep coaching is intended for individuals who want to take action and make behaviour changes in the service of their goals for life, health, well-being or work.

Terms and Conditions for Bookings

 

Agreement

Making a booking on the London Sleep Coach for any of our paid for services involves creating a legally binding contract (the “Agreement”) between the Customer and London Sleep Coach.

We provide our services to you subject to this Agreement, so as always with a binding contract, you should read through it carefully before making a booking. We may make changes to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, but the latest version will always appear on this page. If you continue to use the services after changes have been made, you will be considered to have accepted the changes to the Agreement between us.

Bookings

The Customer is deemed to accept these terms upon booking any of our paid for services and is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all details submitted on the booking form. These terms govern the booking for these services to the exclusion of any terms and conditions of the Customer. The booking form incorporates these terms and constitutes a legally binding contract.

When you book a service with London Sleep Coach through our website, the booking won’t be confirmed until we send you an email confirmation, even if you‘ve transferred money to us.

We will email your booking confirmation, to the email address provided during checkout. If you have not received your confirmation within 48 hours of booking, please contact us. It is your responsibility to ensure that your email is set up to allow you to receive your confirmation, and we cannot accept any liability for any consequences of your not doing so. Please retain proof of your registration, as this and/or identification may be requested upon check-in for a service.

Each Online Group Course has a specific maximum capacity for the number of people that can attend. The maximum number of people is 8.

Each Online Support Group has a specific maximum capacity for the number of people that can attend. The maximum number of people is 12.

The Online Group Course may require the submission of a participant questionnaire after a booking is made. This will allow London Sleep Coach to be made aware of any issues that need to be handled sensitively during the course and to schedule a follow up call, if necessary. If for any reason, any information provided suggests that a customer is not fit to attend the course, we reserve the right to cancel their booking and refund that Participant’s booking fees in full to the Customer.

By registering for any of the paid for services, all Participants assume the responsibility of ensuring they are physically and psychologically fit to participate in this service and that they have consulted with their doctor or psychologists as necessary. London Sleep Coach will not be making any judgement as to a Participant’s fitness to participate in a service. However, the Participant should inform London Sleep Coach (privately) of any personal concerns that may arise as the course or consultations progresses. If for any reason London Sleep Coach finds it necessary to ask a Participant to leave an online consultation, an online group support meeting or a session in the Online Group Course or the course altogether, the Participant agrees to do so immediately.

Some of the activities undertaken in the paid for services involve movement. It is always the responsibility of each participant to make the decision about whether to take part in a specific activity. If there is any doubt, the decision should always be to exercise caution and we recommend that participants consult a GP or other health professional, if ever unsure whether any activity is safe for them to do.

For the paid for services you must complete the Booking form as provided by Calendly; (i) you must ensure that the details provided by you on registration or at any time are correct and complete (ii) you must inform us immediately of any changes to the information that you provide when registering by updating your personal details to ensure we can communicate with you effectively. (iii) you will then be prompted to pay (all payments are processed by Stripe); (iv) once payment has been authorised, you will receive a booking confirmation email (at which point your order will become a binding contract). We will not file a copy of these terms of sale specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of these terms of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you download, print and retain a copy of these terms of sale for your records. The only language in which we provide these terms of sale is English.

Attendance and Conduct

For the paid for services please ensure you arrive on time for each session. We welcome early arrival, but ask that you arrive no more than 5 minutes early for the consultations or group sessions.

London Sleep Coach reserves the right to refuse admission to any person whom it considers in its absolute discretion to be unsuitable for admission to the Online Group Course or Online Support Groups or to remove any such person after the commencement of the Online Group Course or Online Group Support Session.

Confidentiality

We take the confidentiality of those who come to our Online Group Course or Online Group Support Sessions very seriously. London Sleep Coach is under an obligation to keep any Participant information shared prior to and during the events completely confidential (except as otherwise required by law).

From time to time, Participants may share sensitive personal information during a group session. We expect all Participants to respect each other’s confidentiality and treat any information shared in the course group as confidential. If it should come to our attention that information gained in this way about another Participant has been shared inappropriately or outside the group, this would be treated extremely seriously and may result in the Participant involved being asked to leave the Online Group Course and/or not attend future Online Group Support meetings.

Materials and Handouts

Unless stated otherwise, the first copy of the Online Group Course materials are included in the course fees. If for any reason additional copies are requested, these will be made available, but an additional cost may be required.

Any recorded or written material included or presented as part of the Online Group Course is protected by intellectual property laws, including copyright laws and may not be used without obtaining prior written permission from London Sleep Coach and the respective authors.

 

Cancellations or Changes to Bookings

 

Cancellation by London Sleep Coach

In the case that the course or a consultation is cancelled prior to commencement by London Sleep Coach, any advance paid fees will be refunded in full. However, we will not be able to compensate you for any other expenses you have incurred in connection with the Online Group Course or a consultation.

Session Rescheduling by London Sleep Coach

If an Online Group Course session needs to be cancelled as a result of the sleep coach absence or due to other unforeseeable circumstance, we will make all efforts to make up this session by adding a session at the end of the course at the same time and day, or by adding course time to previously scheduled class sessions. If that is not possible, it may be necessary to reschedule it for an alternative day and time. In this case, Participants will be responsible for any special arrangements required to attend the session.

If an Online Support Group session needs to be cancelled as a result of the sleep coach absence or due to other unforeseeable circumstances, Participants will be able to join a future Online Support Group session free of charge. In this case, Participants will be responsible for any special arrangements required to attend the session. If that is not possible, the Participant will be entitled to a full refund for the cancelled session.

If an Online Consultation needs to be cancelled as a result of the sleep coach absence or due to other unforeseeable circumstances, The Customer and Participant will be able to reschedule a future Consultation free of charge. If that is not possible, the Participant will be entitled to a full refund for the cancelled Consultation.

 Cancellation by the Participant or Customer

If an Agreement is cancelled by a Participant or a Customer we are unable to offer any refunds if cancelled less than 1 day prior to the first session of any paid for service. If a Participant fails to attend the Online Group Course, the Customer is not entitled to a refund or transfer.

If an Agreement is cancelled by the Customer or a Participant more than 1 day before the first session of a paid for service, we will refund the full fee. Alternatively, the full fee can be applied as a credit towards a future course, consultation or session, which must be booked in advance and is subject to availability.

You must send your cancellation or transfer request to us by email at londonsleepcoach@gmail.com

Changes

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.

By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, you must stop using the service.
