2. Information I give you
2.1 Certain sections of this contract only apply to you and me if you are a ‘consumer’, that is if you are an individual acting for purposes which are wholly or mainly outside your business or profession. If you use my products or services for your business, these sections will not apply to you. By law, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that I must give you certain key information before a legally binding contract of sale between you and me is made (see the summary box below). I shall give you this information in a clear and understandable way either in this contract or the relevant product, programme or service description we agree between us.
Information I shall give you
|I shall give you information on:
the main characteristics of the services or products you want to buy
who I am, where I am based and how you can contact me
the total price of the services or products
the arrangements for payment, carrying out the services and the time by which I shall carry out the services or delivery of the product
how to exercise your right to cancel the contract
my complaint handling policy
3. Ordering services or products from me
3.1 Below, I set out how a legally binding contract to buy services or products between you and me is made:
3.2 You place an order either on the site by clicking on the relevant payment link or I shall send you the link by email or we shall agree another means of payment. Please read and check your order carefully before submitting it.
3.2.1 When you place your order at the end of the online checkout process by clicking on the payment link on my site, or by clicking on the payment link I send to you by email, I shall acknowledge it by email. This acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.
3.2.2 Any quotation for services given by me before you make an order for services is not a binding offer by me to supply such services. Any prices set out in a quotation remain valid for 30 days unless the price quoted is a special offer in which case it will specify an expiry date for that offer.
3.2.3 When you decide to place an order for services or products with me, this is when you offer to buy such services or products from me.
3.3.4 I may contact you to say that I do not accept your order, for example if I do not think my services are right for you or there has been a mistake in the pricing or description of the services or products, or my circumstances have changed since I gave you the quotation for the services .
3.3.5 I shall only accept your order when I confirm this to you by sending you a confirmation email or delivering the product or services. At this point:
a) a legally binding contract will be in place between you and me, and
b) I shall deliver the product or start to carry out the services as set out in the programme description on this website or in a services description agreed between us.
4. Carrying out the services
4.1 If you are a consumer, you have protection under consumer rights legislation, including that the services must be carried out with reasonable care and skill.
4.2 I shall carry out the services within the time period which is set out in the programme description or in a services description.
4.3 My services might be affected by events beyond my reasonable control. If so, there might be a delay before I can restart the services, having made reasonable efforts to limit the effect of any of those events and having kept you informed of the circumstances, but I shall try to restart the services as soon as those events have been fixed. Examples of events which might be beyond my reasonable control include internet failure or other IT problems, if I am ill or if you change the services you require from me and I have to do extra preparation.
5. One to One Coaching
5.1 All one to one coaching sessions must be taken within the timeframe specified in the programme description or services description or they will expire.
5.2 Unless we agree otherwise, you can rearrange any two coaching sessions during a coaching programme providing you give me at least 48 hours’ notice. If you give me less than 48 hours’ notice or have already rearranged 2 sessions in a coaching programme, unless I agree otherwise with you in advance, you will be deemed to have taken the session and you will not be able to reschedule it or entitled to any compensation for missing it.
5.3 Coaching sessions usually take place remotely via the means of communication agreed with you in advance.
6. Group Coaching and M2M360 Membership
As part of your membership or group coaching you will gain access to a dedicated online membership area. You will be provided with a username and password to gain access to this area and it is important that you keep this information secure and do not share it with others. The access to the membership or group coaching area of the website is for you personally and if you allow others to access this area I shall have the right to terminate your membership or coaching contract with immediate effect.

8.4 Coaching is not therapy or counselling. It may involve all areas of your life, including work, finances, relationships and education. You acknowledge that deciding how to handle these issues and the choices you make in relation to them is exclusively your responsibility. For this reason I cannot guarantee any specific outcomes when you use my products or services or that all clients will achieve the same results.
8.5 My role is to offer you insight and accountability and help you make positive lifestyle and business changes in order to make progress towards your goals. The information I provide to you is not medical advice and is not intended to take the place of seeing licensed health professionals.
8.6 Coaching does not treat mental disorders and is not a substitute for counselling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care or medical treatment of any kind. By entering into this agreement you confirm that you will not use my services or products in place of any form of therapy.
8.7 If you are currently receiving treatment from a doctor or other healthcare professional and are entering into one of my coaching programmes, by entering into this agreement you confirm that you have consulted with this person regarding the advisability of working with a coach and that this person is aware of and supports your decision to proceed with the coaching programme described in the relevant programme or services description.
8.8 If you are using my coaching services you will keep me informed of any changes to your medical health or personal circumstances.

9.3 Payment is via the ‘pay now’ button on this website or as agreed between us or set out in the relevant product or services description.
9.4 I require payment in advance for coaching services. In certain circumstances I may agree to payment by instalments, in which case a supplementary fee may be chargeable. If I agree to accept payment by instalments for coaching services and you fail to make any of the instalment payments on the due date then I reserve the right to invoice you immediately for the whole of the outstanding balance and payment for that invoice will be due by return and in addition I shall charge you a late payment fee of £50 to cover the administration costs involved in chasing payment.
9.5 If your full payment or any instalments are not paid on the due date, all coaching sessions will cease and I may charge interest on any balance outstanding at the rate of 4 percentage points a year above Lloyds TSB Bank plc's base rate.

11.3 The cancellation period will expire 14 days after the commencement of the contract.
11.4 However, if you confirm to me you wish me to start to provide the services during the 14 day cancellation period then you lose your right to cancel.
11.5 As you have immediate access to the M2M360 and M2M80 resources as soon as you sign up, the 14 day cancellation period does not apply to M2M360 and M2M80.
11.6 Following confirmation from you under 11.4, if you start a one to one or group coaching programme during the cancellation period and subsequently decide that you do not wish to proceed with the sessions, I am not able to refund to you any of the payments you have made as payment is for the programme as a whole and not for individual sessions. This is a reflection of the of the amount of preparation I need to put into the programme to make it most effective for you and the amount of time I shall dedicate and set aside for preparing for and attending our sessions together. This policy also helps you with your own accountability and commitment to improving your life and your business through the services.
11.7 If you buy digital products from me you do not have any right to cancel or ask for a refund once downloading starts.
