OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
These terms and conditions apply to the order by you to book on one of our courses and to our
provision of the services to you when delivering the courses (‘the Contract’). These terms and
conditions apply to the exclusion of any other terms that you seek to impose or incorporate, or
which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing. The Contract is the entire
agreement between you and us in relation to its subject matter. Once you have booked with us and

We draw your specific attention to our Cancellation Policy and Health Information below:

Following deposit, your place is only guaranteed up until the date of your final balance (6 weeks
before training) and eligibility to attend is confirmed. PLEASE ensure payment is on the due date
as we will not always be able to send a reminder-the GoCardless will automatically take this from
the account you sign it to, we cannot guarantee your place if the payment is received after the final
The deposit option only applies to self funding bookings of 3 Parts in same venue on consecutive dates
advertised as one course. If individual parts are booked then full payment must be received on
booking to confirm your place.
Full payment must be made when applications are submitted within 6 weeks of the first training
day. This can be made via secure credit card (no charge) debit card transaction (no charge) or bank
transfer (no charge), once your eligibility to attend is confirmed.
If the delegates employer is funding the course, and the payment is delayed by 3 months or more
the delegate will be charged the course fees.
If the delegate books on the course and an invoice is raised and we have confirmed your place the
cancellation fees still apply and your employer will still be charged even if you cancel your training out of the cancellation period.
Cheques are accepted but there is a £10 charge, please add this to your bill if paying by cheque.
YOUR ORDER AND OBTAINING A REFUND
Please read this section as whole before submitting any request for a cancellation to us. Time frames
to cancel are as follows:
Less than 4 weeks: No refunds are permitted when a cancellation is made less than 4 weeks prior
to the date of your first booked training day.
Between 4 and 6 weeks: A 50% refund will be made if you cancel between 4 and 6 weeks prior to
the date of your first booked training day.
6 weeks or more: A 75% refund will be made if you cancel with 6 weeks’ notice prior to the date
of your first booked training day.
Method of cancelling: To be effective, cancellations must be in writing and sent to us by email or

If you are emailing us or writing to us please include details of your order to
help us to identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by email or by recorded delivery, then
your cancellation is effective from the date you send us the email or if by recorded delivery, the
date the letter is received by us. With email, you will have given us notice in time as long as you
get your email to us before midnight on that day.
For the avoidance of doubt, if you are booked on an all 3 parts of the course, then this is calculated
as one booking with one start date. Accordingly, please use the date of your first booked training
day for Part 1 as the relevant date for calculation of cancelling your order, if required.
The cancellation periods enable us to remain cost effective and allows us time to try and fill a
cancelled booking. With regret therefore, no refunds will be made if the cancellation periods are not
adhered to (even when your non- attendance is due to sickness or bereavement).
IF YOU WANT TO TRANSFER TO ANOTHER TRAINING DATE/COURSE
Deferring or transferring to any other training within EMDR Academy is only possible with 4
weeks or more notice prior to the first day of the course and is dependent on a place being
available. This incurs an administrative charge of £75 + VAT = £90.
If you had received the discount for booking all 3 parts consecutively in the same venue you will be
asked to pay this back as you are no longer eligible for this discount. This discount is £122.50.
Therefore, making your total transfer fee £197.50 (£122.50 + £75 administration charge) plus VAT
