If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the Coaching Agreement or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the Services late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

(a) deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;
(b) update the Services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;

7.8. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the services, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency.

You may contact us to end the Coaching Agreement for a Service if we suspend it.
7.9. We may also suspend supply of the services if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the Services when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment within seven (7) days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the Services until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the Services. We will not charge you for the services during the period for which they are suspended. As well as suspending the Services we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments.
8. YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE COACHING AGREEMENT
8.1. You can always end your Coaching Agreement with us. Your rights when you end the Coaching Agreement will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the Coaching Agreement:
(a) If what you have bought is defective or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the Coaching Agreement;
(b) If you want to end the Coaching Agreement because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do;
(c) If you have just changed your mind about the services, see Clause 8.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the Cooling-Off Period, but this may be subject to deductions;
(d) In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see Clause 8.3.
8.2. Ending the Coaching Agreement because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a Coaching Agreement for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the Coaching Agreement will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any Services which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:
(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the Services or the Coaching Agreement which you do not agree to;
(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the Services you have ordered, and you do not wish to proceed;
(c) there is a risk that supply of the Services may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;
(d) we have suspended supply of the Services for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than seven (7) days; or
(e) you have a legal right to end the Coaching Agreement because of something we have done wrong.
8.3. Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Agreements Regulations 2013). For most services bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a full refund for services paid for but not used, which is termed a “Cooling-Off Period”. If you ask us to commence the Services within the Cooling-Off Period, you will lose your right to a full refund if you then ask us to stop providing the Services. In this case, we will deduct for the Services you have provided before making a refund.
9. KEY TERMS OF THE COACHING AGREEMENT
9.1. The Fees are payable in full in advance of Coaching Sessions unless otherwise agreed.
9.2. The Fees are non-refundable once the Cooling-Off Period has expired.
9.3. You shall provide us 48 hours’ notice to reschedule or cancel a booked Coaching Session or you will be charged for the Coaching Session and the Coaching Session will still be taken out of your Session Allowance.
9.4. You understand that the life and health coaching services are not a replacement for emotional counselling, psychotherapy, medical or psychiatric treatment. You also understand that the role of the Integrative Life and Health Coach is not to prescribe or assess micro- and macronutrient levels; provide health care, medical or nutrition therapy services; or to diagnose, treat or cure any disease, condition or other physical or mental ailment of the human body. Rather, the Coach is a mentor and guide who has been trained in Integrative health coaching to help clients reach their own health goals by helping clients devise and implement positive, sustainable lifestyle changes. You understand that the Coach is not acting in the capacity of a doctor, licensed dietician-nutritionist, psychologist or other licensed or registered professional, and that any advice given by the Coach is not meant to take the place of advice by these professionals. If the Client is under the care of a health care professional or currently uses prescription medications, the Client should discuss any dietary changes or potential dietary supplements use with his or her doctor, and should not discontinue any prescription medications without first consulting his or her doctor. The Client has chosen to work with the coach and understands that the information received should not be seen as medical or nursing advice and is not meant to take the place of seeing licensed health professionals.
9.5. You may stop the Services at any time (in which case, no refund will be provided unless within the Cooling-Off Period).
9.6. The results of the Service vary between customers and we do not guarantee, warrant nor represent that the Services will achieve any specific result for you.

You represent and warrant that you, or your child receiving the Services, are psychologically, mentally and physically well enough to receive the Services, and that you will hold the Coach and its directors, agents, partners, secretaries, accountants and associates completely harmless in the event of any medical or psychological conditions being triggered or made worse as a result of receiving the Services.
9.8. By agreeing to these terms in writing such as via email or by ticking the box marked “I have read the Coaching Agreement and agree to the terms and conditions” and clicking the “Schedule Event” or “submit” button, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Coaching Agreement. By accepting a coaching session with the Coach, you also agree to be bound to the terms of this Coaching Agreement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Coaching Agreement, you shall immediately cease usage of the Services and this website.
9.9. You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age, and that you have legal authority to agree to this Coaching Agreement.
9.10. You represent and warrant that you are psychologically well enough to do so and will not hold the Coach liable for any pre-existing medical or psychological health problems, and you hereby receive the Services solely at your own risk.
9.11. Any session allowance must be used within 365 days (1 year) of the date the Services have been ordered (unless stated in writing), otherwise you agree to forfeit your right to these remaining sessions.
