BOOKINGS, CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
Due to the nature of my business and that I work in small groups / one on one, cancellations and last minute changes affect me significantly. Put simply, I’m turning down other work or opportunities to teach you on the dates we agree, so I apply a strict non negotiable cancellation and refund policy. Please take your time when booking your workshop or tuition and keep the communication open. Cancellations happen, so it’s just a simple case of letting me know in good time so that I can re-book a time for you.
