Terms and Conditions for VOLVA website and app, content, bookings, services and products.
Please check back on the terms and conditions as they are updated regularly.



When you request an appointment, you will receive an automatic email confirmation of your booking shortly after your request (in some time zones, it may be a little longer due to the time difference/office hours). If there is an issue at all, I will contact you as soon as possible.

First Visit/Initial Consultation

For all new clients and those returning to appointments after 6 months or more, when requesting your first appointment, payment is required be finalised in advance in order to secure your appointment date and time. On receipt of your booking request, you will receive a payment request or invoice where payment can be made securely online by debit/credit card, PayPal or BACS. Payment must be received by the 10am on the Monday preceeding your requested appointment date before your appointment can be confirmed - only when payment is received can your appointment request be approved, booked and secured. 


If your first visit request was declined due to non-payment in advance, this does not automatically mean we cannot work together but please be aware that any future appointment requests for new clients are subject to the same conditions. If there more than 2 requests for a first visit without finalisation of advance payment, all future requests will be automatically declined and we are unable to work together.


If booking an appointment directly with myself by telephone, email or text, this can be paid securely by PayPal link, credit/debit card, BACS or over the phone. This also applies to bookings for Remote Sessions for all clients including existing, new or returning to consultations.

At the beginning of your appointment, we will have a short chat and you may be asked a few questions. This provides a general background to your query for readings and psychic assessments. Please note that some personal information may be required and this is strictly private and confidential. This is an opportunity to explore whether we feel we would like to move forward together and both parties are free to say either yes or no to working together, without expectation or judgement.​

Booking An Appointment

Please visit the Book Online page

Declined Booking Requests

On the rare occasion that your booking is declined, this does not automatically mean we cannot work together; it may mean that payment has not been finalised or the date and time you requested is unavailable for the requested service. It may mean that I need a little more information to assess whether I can read for you, or that you have requested a specialised service that requires a telephone consultation before your first appointment or that there is a waiting list for the service you requested. The reasons for declining your booking request will be given in the email. More information on declined bookings is available here.


Please let me know at the time of booking, either on the notes section when booking online or by contacting me directly, if there are any physical, mental or emotional restrictions, limitations, adaptations or special requirements for your treatment. As a professional practitioner, it is important to me that I am able to provide the best possible environment for you.

Please note that if attending an appointment in person, the location is not wheelchair accessible and there are stairs to the reading room & apothecary. Many of my clients are unable to attend in person and remote appointments, either by phone or Zoom, are available.


If you are suffering from a cold or other contractible infection or disease, please do not book or attend an in person appointment until your symptoms have subsided and you are well again. If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, please see the terms for cancellation and rescheduling below.


Same Day Booking

Appointments booked online with less than 24 hours notice (for example, appointments booked in the morning for the afternoon of the same day) are not guaranteed to be fulfilled. If you would like to book on the day, please contact me in the first instance for availability.

Reschedule, Cancellation and Missed Appointments - Notification

The conditions for reschedule, cancellation and missed appointments apply to all appointments, including remote consultations, whether they have been booked directly with myself, online or at a centre. Please note that 48 hours notice of reschedule or cancellation is requested and at least 24 hours notice of cancellation is required. If you have a Member account, this can be done through the online booking system (if you have booked online) by logging in to your account. It can also be done by contacting me directly by telephone, email or text. Please do not notify of cancellation of appointments through social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) as messages may not be received in time.


Reschedule, Cancellation and Missed Appointments - Fees

If less than 24 hours notice of reschedule or cancellation is given, a fee will be charged. The fee is the deposit for the service booked.​

If less than 12 hours notice of reschedule or cancellation is given, the full service cost will be charged and an invoice for the outstanding amount is issued. Swift settlement is appreciated.

Missed appointments are also subject to a fee of the full service cost. Payment can be made by the accepted payment methods.

Please be aware that the fees above also apply to late notice cancellations and rescheduling as a result of receiving a positive result from a COVID test. To avoid late notice fees for cancellation or rescheduling your appointment, you may wish to avoid testing or consider testing days before your appointment so that you are able to give sufficient notice if you wish to cancel. 

Notice period of cancellation for block bookings: All block bookings are subject to 2 weeks notice of cancellation. This is also applicable if you have attended part of the block and wish to cancel the remaining secured appointments. If less than 2 weeks notice of cancellation is given, the early cancellation fee for either a 4, 8 or 12 week block fee is 50% of the service cost.

Transferring an Appointment

Appointment bookings can be transferred. If you have booked an appointment for yourself but would like to transfer your appointment to a family member or friend, 48 hours notice of transferring your appointment is required from both yourself, the client whose name the appointment is originally booked under, and from the person to whom the appointment is being transferred to, giving their agreement to attending the appointment and consenting to the terms and conditions of booking. Notification is to be directly with myself or through the website here.


Early & Late Arrival

Please arrive at the time of your appointment if attending in person. There is no waiting area at the venue so if you arrive early you will be unable to enter until your appointment time.

If you arrive late for your appointment, the session will continue to end at the scheduled time.



Support plans are intended to provide you with the best possible support and guidance. They are carefully and considerately planned, specific to the plan, of dedicated sessions over the course the plan. The benefit of support plans is that your sessions are given booking priority and are booked in advance. This ensures your sessions are cohesive and regular providing the best possible treatment. If you are unable to make a session of a week, please allow 48 hours notice and I will try to reschedule that session for the same week - the session cannot be carried over to the following week. If you cancel or miss an appointment, it cannot be carried over to the following week. This is due to limited appointment availability and there is sometimes a waiting list for appointments. The appointment cost for a missed appointment is non refundable. Please see Reschedule, Cancellation and Missed Appointments above. Support plans are non transferable.​



Gift Cards are valid for 6 months from the purchase date – this date will be on the voucher.

E-vouchers provide a download link to the voucher in the e-mail confirmation of your order. This link is active for 30 days after purchase - after this time the link is no longer valid and you will not be able to access the e-card and replacements and/or refunds will not be issued.

E-cards can be redeemed online using the order number in the email - please add this to the 'redeem gift voucher' at checkout. Gift vouchers and E-cards are non transferable, non refundable and cannot be exchanged for cash equivalence.



Ticket purchase is required to secure your place on all training courses and workshops and this is payable when booking online, securely via PayPal or credit or debit card. If you are booking via email or over the phone, this can be paid securely over the phone or via payment request link. For short events/workshops, tickets purchased online are non refundable and non transferable. In the event that you are unable to attend the event, the ticket is non refundable and not transferable to another date.


Please note that your place for an event, workshop or course is only secured when the ticket cost is paid. If you have expressed an interest or have asked that a place be secured for you for an event, workshop or course by email, telephone, text or social media, your place is only secured once payment has been finalised and you have received confirmation by email or receipt.

Please note that if you have seen the event, workshop or course advertised on social media, including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and X (Twitter), your place is not secured if you select ‘Going’ on the Facebook event page, liking the event tweet or requesting a place to be held for you via social media/post comments. It is only secured once payment has been finalised and you have received confirmation by email or receipt.


Course Cancellation

If less than 14 days notice of cancellation is given, 50% of the event ticket cost is refunded. The ticket cost is non returnable with less than 7 days notice of cancellation. For one to one Reiki training courses, if you miss the course without notice, an additional missed fee of £35 is applied.


If you are unable to attend the course date you have booked and would like to attend the next scheduled course date, please give at least 14 days notice – there is no fee to reschedule for an upcoming course with 14 or more days notice. Please note this does not apply to circle events or short workshops. With less than 14 days notice, there is a fee of £35 in addition to the ticket cost. If you give less than 7 days notice of rescheduling, 50% of the ticket cost is non returnable and a fee of £35 in addition to the remaining 50% ticket cost, is required to secure your place on the next scheduled course.
