Terms & Conditions

Therapeutic Working Alliance

Hypnotherapy, Coaching and Counselling (including CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and NLP – Neuro Linguistic Programming) services are all collaborative therapies / treatments and are ultimately reliant upon commitment and motivation from both therapist and client to get the best results. Part of our work occurs in the consulting room but some is cognitive reflection or homework in the form of agreed tasks and will be need to be completed outside the consulting room, such as listening to a CD before you go to sleep.

As the client, when you agree to undertake a course of therapy or arrive for individual treatments you also agree to engage fully with the process and complete any homework that is discussed and agreed during your sessions. It is through this collaborative and therapeutic alliance that you will see the best results.

Therapy Sessions & Fees

Each standard therapy session lasts between 50 and 60 minutes and the rates can be found on the relevant page of the website.

Bodywork treatment times differ and can be adjusted to meet your needs.

Standard rates for all services are listed on the relevant treatment / therapy page.  At certain times of the year we may offer vouchers, discounts or offers for some of our treatments, please note that the relevant offer terms will need to be met e.g. voucher presented at time of treatment etc.

Fees are payable at the end of each session by cash, cheque or in advance by BACS

Cheques are made payable to J Beddow.

You may pay in advance if you wish, should we agree a fixed number of therapy sessions, any discounts or concessions will be agreed prior to commencement and confirmed in writing.


You, as a client, commit to attend the all appointments made.

Cancellation Policy

A minimum of 24 hours notice* is required to cancel any session, this must be via telephone, text or email. If an appointment is cancelled with less notice then the full session fee will apply.

If we have to cancel or move your session you will be given at least 48 hours notice, more if possible.

Late cancellation or no show fees may be waived in mitigating circumstances.


Arriving Late for an Appointment

If you are running late, please make contact as soon as possible.

Although we will try and accommodate late arrivals this will be dependent upon the subsequent client and so cannot be guaranteed.

If your session needs to be curtailed due to your late arrival then the session fee remains payable in full.


Your privacy and safety are of utmost importance and your details will be treated confidentially.  The only exception or breach in confidentiality will be in the following circumstances:

All my work is conducted in accordance with and reference to the relevant  ethical guidelines and principles (BACP / NCH)


In order to ensure continued best practice, I receive regular clinical supervision of my work with clients. All client notes and any discussions are anonymised.

During supervision it may be necessary to review your case, but any reference that could allow you to be identified is removed and each client is referenced by a number and or initials only.

As a member of a number of professional bodies I continue to develop and retain up to date knowledge and information about each area in which I practice.  I attend a range of Continued Professional Development Courses throughout the year which meet and usually exceeds the minimum requirements of each regulatory body / Standard.

    I had never tried Reflexology before going to Jo - but it's safe to say I'm now a convert! The actual manipulation of the feet is in itself very soothing, as generally the feet are subject to constant exertion and vigorous treatment, so it feels great to give them a treat. …

Jo's manner is…

    I started to see Jo in Feb 2016 after a relative spotted her advert in a local magazine and thought I should ring her to see if she could help me with my anxiety issues.  I’m so glad I did!  Now, six months later, I feel I am so much…
