Driving anxiety contract

    This contract is made between Paul Dodd (referred to from now on as “I”) residing at 42a Rea Valley Drive, Northfield, Birmingham, B31 3XE, United Kingdom, and you, the person detailed below (referred to from now on as “You”). These two parties together will be collectively referred to as "The Parties". This contract is written under UK law which will apply wherever you are located. Full details of how your data will be used and stored can be found at https://www.1stdrive.com/privacy-policy/

    1. Services

    I offer my services to help you overcome driving anxiety. No other services are included.

    This service will not teach you how to drive and no driving lessons are included. It's your responsibility to ensure you have learnt to drive safely and follow all the necessary rules and regulations for wherever you are located.

    The service I offer is only provided remotely over the internet. It does not include any face-to-face work.

    The agreed price of this service is £500 (GBP).

    Successful therapy relies on you being willing and able to face difficult and emotional situations that happened in your life. These can often be handled without you needing to talk about them or disclose private information but if you are unable to discuss these events because of having signed non-disclosure agreements or for any other reason, it may be harder or not possible to get the result you want.

    Sessions must not be recorded in any way. You do not have my permission to post any video or audio of a session online or anywhere else. I will not record or post any session unless you have given me written permission to do so.

    Anything you tell me during sessions will be kept strictly confidential. The only exception to this is if you disclose that you have taken part in a crime or are threatening to harm yourself or others. In these instances, I have to report such things to the relevant authorities.

    Driving anxiety is a symptom of another issue in your life that needs resolving. It is impossible to know what this issue is, therefore it may be something I cannot deal with. In these cases, I can refer you to a more suitable therapist.

    I can only help you, not others in your life. It is essential that if you are currently in an abusive relationship or believe any other person currently present in your life may be the cause of your anxiety, you must tell me before signing this.

    Much of the change work happens after the session as your mind processes thoughts. This takes anything from 1 hour to several weeks so while many people experience results within a short amount of time, this is not guaranteed.

    You can have a maximum of 1 session every 7 days for up to 3 months from the contract date below.

    Please do not use any kind of virtual background or blurred background effect during online sessions. These can interfere with the image quality by making your limbs and head disappear at times which is very distracting and makes it difficult for me to see what is happening. Please do not use any filters such as dog ears on your head, Emoji faces etc. for the same reasons.

    During a session you must not drink alcohol, smoke, vape or use any kind of device for texting, messaging etc. You must ensure any pets do not interfere and it's best to not have them in the room during a session as your full concentration is required for this to work. If you arrive for a session under the influence of alcohol or drugs then the session will be cancelled.

    2. Guarantees

    There are no guarantees. You may pay for this service and not get the result you want.

    3. Driving after a session

    Therapy can be extremely emotional and I recommend you allow at least 2 hours after a session to collect yourself.

    You must not drive until at least the next day, allowing a minimum of 12 hours between a session and driving to allow yourself time to regain composure.

    I accept no responsibility for any loss, damage or injury to yourself, others, or any property as a result of your driving after a session. You must take all possible measures to ensure your safety and that of others, especially in situations where you have previously experienced problems when driving.

    4. Health declaration and safety measures

    By signing this contract you confirm that you do not currently have (and have never had) any mental health issues including, but not limited to, bipolar and schizophrenia. If you have (or have ever had) epilepsy or asthma you must check with a medical professional first. Much of the work I do uses hypnosis which can make any of these conditions worse or bring on an attack.

    I am not medically qualified in any way and cannot diagnose medical conditions. It is essential that you exhaust all medical options before taking therapy to ensure the issue is not caused by something I can't help with. Nothing I say must be taken as medical advice or instruction and I can't advise on whether hypnotherapy is suitable for you based on any medication you are taking.

    It is your responsibility to make sure you are medically fit to use hypnotherapy. If you are unsure about your suitability for hypnotherapy due to any medical issue, you must check this with a doctor before signing this contract.

    If you have an injury to any part of your body then you must tell me before we begin work.

    You may want to close your eyes for extended periods of time during a session. If you wear contact lenses or anything else that could be affected by this then be sure to remove them before a session begins.

    You must make sure you are in a safe location safe for sessions. I recommend a sturdy chair or bed and you should always be in a situation and location where it would be safe to fall asleep. It helps if any pets are kept out of the room and any other people in the location are aware that you need to not be disturbed.
