1: Fees + Payment Terms + Bookings
All mediation services are offered by appointment only. We cannot guarantee a particular time or date however we will strive to accommodate the requirements of the Client.
Rachel Evenden Mediation’s fees will be in accordance with the published rates unless agreed otherwise.

We reserve the right to make any changes to the booking but will keep any changes to an absolute minimum. In the event that one or both Clients cannot attend a scheduled meeting, Rachel Evenden Mediation will endeavour to rearrange the appointment, however fees cannot be refunded if an alternative booking cannot be agreed with the Client.
Should any information provided change at any stage or be found to be incorrect, either deliberately of otherwise, we reserve the right to amend or cancel the booking. The return of any payments in this instance shall be at our sole discretion.
