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

    This service is to help you overcome driving anxiety. No other services are included.

    All sessions are done remotely over the internet. This does not include any face-to-face work.

    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 laws, rules and regulations for wherever you are located.

    This service is unlikely to work if you have unresolved serious abuse or trauma from childhood. If you have then you must tell me before signing this and I will be able to refer you to someone that can help.

    The agreed price of this service is £1,000 (GBP).

    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.

    You created your problem, therefore you also have the solution to it. My role is to help guide you to that solution but I can't find it for you, tell you what it is or do anything other than help you find the solution yourself. If you are expecting me to do all the work and fix the problem for you then do not proceed with this therapy because that is not how it works.

    Many changes happen after the session as your mind processes thoughts. This often happens within hours of the session and almost always within seven days but it can take any amount of time. This means that while some people see fast results, it can take several weeks or even months for your driving to return to how it used to be before you had driving anxiety.

    You can have a maximum of five sessions, each up to two hours in length, for up to three months from the contract date below. There must be a minimum period of seven calendar days between each session. Five sessions are the maximum you can have, it does not mean you are owed sessions if you fix the problem in less than five.

    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 results you want.

    3. Driving after a session

    Therapy can be extremely emotional and I recommend you allow at least one hour after a session to collect yourself before doing anything else.

    You must not drive until at least twenty-four hours after a session to allow yourself time to regain composure.

    If you are unable to drive due to not having access to a vehicle or any other reason (except driving anxiety) you must consider whether this is the right time for you to use this service.

    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.

    5. Cooling-off period

    You have fourteen days from the day after the contract date below to cancel this service. If you cancel during this time by contacting me through the email address [email protected] you will be given a full refund.

    If you do a session during this cooling-off period then you will not be owed a refund of any amount.
