Booking a Session

On this page you will find information relating to booking a session, cancellations and payments.  Click here to go to the contact page where you can contact Dr John Barry to make an enquiry or book a session.

Scheduling a session

  • At the time of booking an appointment, you will be asked to provide your preferred method of contact.  All appointments made over the phone or via email will be confirmed via your preferred method.
  • Standard session times are 50 mins (exceptions for some appointments e.g. stop smoking which is 2 hours).
  • Dr John Barry only offers a limited number of appointments a week across his different practices.  When making contact to book a session, please provide a range of dates and times that will suit you and Dr Barry will do his best to fit you in.
  • The performance of service begins 48 hours before the confirmed appointment time, as time and resources will have been reserved for you (see cancellation policy below).
  • The appointment fee must be paid in full 48 hours in advance of the session as only full payment secures the booking.
  • Please note:  It is the client’s responsibility to inform Dr John Barry Hypnotherapy of any change of contact details during their treatment.
 

Cancellation Policy

It is necessary to follow a cancellation policy as time and resources will have been reserved for you which are non refundable to the hypnotherapist if you cancel at short notice.  Additionally, cancellations at short notice may have denied other clients an appointment at this time.  Having said Dr Barry recognises that challenging situations sometimes occur in life and it is his priority to treat people fairly.
When booking an appointment, the client accepts that any cancellations and rescheduling of appointments require 48 hours’ notice.  Please therefore aim to make any cancellations or rescheduling as soon as possible.
It is further understood that if you fail to attend or cancel/reschedule an appointment with less than 48 hours’ notice, you will be charged 50 % of the full session fee and if you fail to attend or cancel/reschedule an appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be charged 100% of the full fee.  Exceptions exist for certain appointments (e.g. stop smoking) where a portion of your full fee will be refundable to you.    
Appointments booked less than 24 hours in advance cannot be cancelled; to do so will incur the full charge.
 Please note:  Any request for refund for advance paid sessions cancelled prior to the agreed 24/48 hours will be made by direct payment to your bank account within 5 working days of the date of the request.
 

Payments

Hypnotherapy session payments can be made by Bank Transfer (credit or debit card).  Bank details are available on request.  Invoices are issued on request.
The appointment fee must be paid in full 48 hours in advance of the session as only full payment secures the booking.
Please note:  Additional fees may be payable for sessions provided outside of agreed times, geographical areas or timescales. Any additional fees will be advised prior to the acceptance of any booking.
