2.       Payment terms 

Upon booking an individual consultation, an invoice will be sent to you. Invoices should be paid on the day of receipt.

Please ensure that the email address provided on the personal information form is the email address that you would like your invoices sent to.

Any electronic client records, and/or the devices on which they are kept, are encrypted and/or password protected. I do not transport paper material with identifying information. I take steps to ensure that no one else can access your personal data without your specific consent. 

In the unlikely event of a data breach, I will report this to you and to the Information Commissioner’s Office within 72 hours. You may request copies of the data I hold about you. I will respond within 30 calendar days. There is no fee for this.
