Do not use the techniques or exercises contained within some of these products whilst driving or operating machinery, or if you suffer from epilepsy, clinical depression or any other nervous or psychiatric conditions. The information provided is not a substitute for proper medical advice. If in doubt, please consult your doctor or licensed medical practitioner.

Any decision you make having received any of Sandy Newbigging's products or services are your own and you remain wholly responsible for any decisions and actions you take.

Health Policy

You are only allowed to attend our clinic, training course/workshop or retreat if you are of good enough health to get to and from the location without support and look after yourself during your time with us. No claims are being made that our methods can heal physical conditions. Our clinics, courses, retreats or products should not substitute for the advice and treatment of a physician, doctor or other licensed health-care professional.

Refunds for Home Study Courses

A full refund is available up until you have your first Skype meeting with your dedicated coach and receive the passwords that give you access to the online course materials, then no refunds are available. We are fully committed to you and it is in your best interest to complete the course.  If you have any difficulties arise during the course, then talk it through with your dedicated coach trainer. Challenges are best faced sooner rather than later and can often be highly beneficial learning and growth opportunities.

There is a 1-year limit on completing the course(s). After this time, we will remove you from our system.  If you reach the 1-year limit and still want to graduate, you will be required to pay £397 to get an extension of 1-year.  In our experience, people love the courses, enjoy going through the materials and as a result, graduate within 3-6 months on average. 

Bookings and Payments with 3rd Party Practitioners

No money should be paid directly to your dedicated coach trainer.  They should never ask you to pay anything.  Please let us know if they do.  

Please contact your dedicated Coach Trainer with any questions you may have in relation to Skype session dates and times.
