Neither you nor any other person shall obtain any intellectual property rights or any other interest, right or title whatsoever in or to any Product or any Event materials or any part thereof save as otherwise expressly granted under these terms of supply.

If you purchase an event for which we provide you event materials, we hereby grant you a non-transferable, non-exclusive licence to use those materials strictly for the purpose of participating in the relevant event and for your own educational, non-commercial purposes.

Confidentiality

All information provided by the client will be kept strictly confidential, and will only be disclosed with the clients consent, or as required by law or regulatory body.

 

Coaching

Coaching serves to address specific personal projects eg the client’s health and wellbeing, and issues pertaining to that, or general conditions in the client’s life.

 

You acknowledge that health coaching is not a substitute for medical assessment or diagnosis, under these terms and conditions.

 

You acknowledge that health coaching is not counselling or psychotherapy.

We do not guarantee or warrant any specific result or benefit to you from coaching.

The coaching is not provided on a pay as you go basis, which means that once entered into, the full sum of the contract will remain due, even if an installment payment plan is in place.

Throughout the working relationship, the coach will engage in direct and personal conversations. The coach seeks to be honest and straightforward. The client understands that the nature of coaching is participative and the client agrees to commit to a powerful coaching relationship. If the client believes the coaching is not working as desired, the client will communicate that belief and take action to return the power to the coaching relationship.

The services to be provided by the coach to the client are coaching or tele-coaching, as designed jointly with the client.

 

Functional medicine

Please note that Dr. Margriet van Nieuwburg is not your personal GP or primary care physician.

This service is not a substitute for your NHS GP (or other primary care medical provider) and you are advised to ensure you are registered with an NHS GP (or other primary care medical provider)

This service does not provide a 24 hour medical care service. This remains the responsibility of your NHS GP or other primary care medical provider.

If you have a medical emergency you must either dial 999 or contact your GP/ primary care provider or the usual out of hours services.

 

Medical records

We will keep your personal information and medical records safe and protected.

We will not share your records with any 3rd party unless we have your express permission to do so in writing, unless we are required to do so by law or in the interest of your safety or that of the public.

We will not share your records with insurance companies.

We will not complete disability, insurance or other forms on your behalf.

 

Feedback and dispute resolution

Your feedback is important to me. I seek to resolve your concerns quickly and effectively, if you have any feedback or questions, please contact me.

If there is a dispute between us, we agree to the following dispute resolution procedure:

  1. The complainant must tell the respondent in writing, the nature of the dispute, what outcome the complainant wants and what action the complainant thinks will settle the dispute. We agree to meet in good faith to seek to resolve the dispute by agreement between us.
  2. If we cannot agree how to resolve the dispute, any party may refer the matter to a mediator. If the parties cannot agree on who the mediator should be, the complainant will ask the Citizens Advice to appoint a mediator through the Alternative Dispute Resolution process. The mediator will decide the time and place for mediation. All parties must attend the mediation recommended by the mediator in good faith, seeking to resolve the dispute in a timely and reasonable manner, without undue delay or distractions.
