Paying for your course/workshop

In the last few days we have had a number of customers express concern that their UK bank was advising them that it might not be safe to proceed with payment to Gaia School of Natural Health's (GSNH) business bank account, as their UK bank was unable to verify the payee's name with the account sort code and account number entered. This is a new process of "confirmation of Payee" which most of the major UK banks have signed up to implementing, in order to mitigate fraud.

Unfortunately not all UK banks have yet adapted their systems for this to work. GSNH's bank The Co-operative Bank Plc is one such UK bank and is scheduled to update their systems sometime before the end of 2020. Consequently, if your UK Bank has got the system up and running it is likely to highlight the risk of sending money to an account where the name of the account holder is not verified, and the message will identify to you, that any monies paid out will not be refunded if lost or stolen.

From the GSNH perspective, the sort code and account number identified during the booking process is correct and valid. We can not advise you to disregard your UK bank's warning, but with commonsense in mind, you may wish to continue through the payment process by making a notional payment (eg. 1p or £1) which GSNH can confirm receipt of. Once we have confirmed the receipt of this small payment you may then proceed with confidence to send the remaining balance. Alternatively you may prefer to select the cheque payment method.

Hopefully this notice will alleviate some of your concerns and make you aware of the existence of this new payment verification process, and reassure you that the bank details supplied by GSNH during the online booking form process are correct and legitimate.

If you have any further concerns about making payments to GSNH, please let us know via the contact form

Cancellation policy

Course cancellation by Learner

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) / Reiki Learner cancellation

Learners are entitled to cancel their CPD / Reiki booking up to 48 hours before the course start time. Deposits are non-refundable, however where Learners have paid the full balance of the course price, they will be entitled to a refund of the difference between the full balance and the non-refundable deposit. Alternatively they may postpone their booking to the next scheduled course with available space.

Learners who cancel within 48 hours of the start time of the course are liable for the full cost of the course.

Level 5 Diploma Learner cancellation

Learners are provided the opportunity to withdraw from the course and receive a refund of any paid course fees balance (difference between the full course balance and the non-refundable deposit). This is subject to Learners providing written notice of their cancellation within 14 days of the course commencement date.

Beyond the 14 days “cooling-off” period, Gaia School of Natural Health will not provide any refunds to Learners withdrawing from the course.

Please refer to the Learner and School Contract for further details on specific learner liabilities where course financing options are in place. (The learner remains liable for the course fees balance regardless of whether the learner subsequently completes/graduates the Level 5 course.)

Learner cancellation of a Third party supplied CPD course

Please refer to the Third party supplier’s cancellation policy for further detail.

Course cancellation by Gaia School of Natural Health

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) / Reiki course cancellation

In the unlikely event Gaia School of Natural Health cancels the course date (or is required to do so by a governing body e.g. UK Government, the Regulator or Accreditor), an email will be sent to you and an alternative course date/s will be offered. If you cannot attend the revised date/s, then Gaia School of Natural Health will refund your deposit and/or all course fees that have been paid.

Gaia School of Natural Health will not be held liable for any other expenses incurred by the learner associated with joining the cancelled course.

Level 5 Diploma in Practitioner Reflexology course cancellation

Where Gaia School of Natural Health cancels a Level 5 course that has not yet commenced, then any monies paid (e.g. deposit) will be refunded, and if possible an indication of future course start dates will be emailed to you.

Where Gaia School of Natural Health cancels a Level 5 course date for an “in progress” course, an email will be sent to you with an alternative course date/s that will be within the 3 year period required for completing the qualification.

In the extremely unlikely event that the full “in progress” Level 5 course is cancelled, Learners are directed to Centralia (registering body) who will provide assistance in organising an alternative course provider. Additional fees will be incurred by the Learner in order to complete the qualification. The level of additional fees will depend on the scope of teaching to be provided by the alternative course provider.

CPD course cancellation by Third Party training provider

Please refer to the Third party supplier’s cancellation policy for further detail. Gaia School of Natural Health is not liable for third party supplied CPD courses.

Cancellation due to Covid-19

If a learner cannot attend a one or two day workshop at short notice because they have COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19, any standard cancellation fees will be waivered. The client will be asked to kindly confirm in writing/email that they could not attend because they have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19. They will be given the option of transferring their booking to the next available class, or receiving a full refund if this is not convenient, or there is no future planned date.

Learners on multi-day qualification courses who have to cancel at short notice due to suspected or confirmed COVID-19 will be subject to the usual arrangements for being absent from class.
