The Tutors’ terms and conditions can be found here https://www.gatewayworkshops.co.uk/faq/
5.2 Course Price and payment. The price of each Course (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Course advised to you is correct. However please see clause 5.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Course. After you have made a deposit payment on the web site to secure your chosen course/s, you must pay the Course balance price directly to the Tutor in accordance with the Tutors’ terms and conditions which can be found here: https://www.gatewayworkshops.co.uk/faq/

You must pay the deposit/booking fee to us at the time of making your booking. We accept payment with our third party payment systems you can use Worldpay or Pay Pal on our site which accept all major debit and credit cards. We do not take payment over the phone all bookings are to be made on our web site only.
5.4 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, the price or deposit/booking fee of some of the Courses advertised may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the correct price or deposit/booking fee at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the correct price or deposit/booking fee at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.

When you wish to confirm a booking you will need to complete and submit your payment details via one of the third party payment systems we use and make full payment for the applicable deposit/booking fee.

5.6.2 Please note that by sending those emails, we are not accepting your order. Our acceptance of your booking will take place when we have confirmed your credit or debit card authorisation for your booking and we receive an email from the payment provider you used to confirm this, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. A contract between you and the Tutor arises when the Tutor contacts you directly to confirm that he or she has accepted your booking.
5.7 If we cannot accept your booking. If we are unable to accept your booking, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the price of the Course or the deposit/booking fee. This might be because the Course is fully booked, because your debit or credit card payment has been declined by the payment provider you chose to use, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Course, because you have not provided us with the information we require, or because we are informed that the Tutor is unable to provide a Course on the particular date you have requested.
5.8 Your rights to make changes to your booking. If you wish to make a change to the Course you have booked please contact us or the relevant Tutor. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Course, the date of the Course or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

The information contained within our courses are for informational and educational purposes only, once professional training has been completed. It is not an attempt by the writer, course tutor or Gateway Workshops Ltd to diagnose, prescribe, or use such techniques taught in an inappropriate manner. We are a professional training company and do not condone inappropriate contact or unprofessional behaviour at any time.
Once qualified Gateway Workshops Ltd would expect our students to conduct their therapies in a way that is a credit to the professional industry. We have provided some guidelines below on the expected conduct of therapists whilst carrying out treatments with clients.
Maintaining an appropriate and professional relationships with a client is crucial.
Therapists must never use their position of trust to exploit or manipulate the client in any way. Maintaining professional boundaries between the therapist and the client at all times. The Therapist must ensure that the client feels “safe” and minimises the risk of a misunderstanding or complaint.
Therapists must avoid inappropriate touch, dress or conversation with their client.
Therapists should use extra caution when treating near an intimate area of the body, if a treatment requires touching the client near an intimate area, the therapist must explain this to the client in a clear and professional manner.
If a client does not wish to have an area of the body treated as they do not feel comfortable or safe, no pressure or force should ever be placed on the client. You should advise the client if avoiding this area may potentially impact the benefits of the treatment.
It should be outlined in the consultation form that working near an intimate area was discussed, which the client in turn must sign to confirm that they have understood and are happy to proceed with the treatment.
Therapists must establish and uphold clear sexual boundaries with clients, to avoid breaking trust, compromising the reputation of the profession, and potentially committing a criminal offence.
