Terms of use

Welcome to End Agoraphobia!

Below you’ll find the terms and conditions for working with this business.

Note: “Hypnotist” refers to Doug Sands or any hypnotist working in contract with Doug Sands. “Client” refers to anyone who pays for services from End Agoraphobia.

Any participation with End Agoraphobia and its practitioners constitutes acceptance of this document in full. By accessing and using this service, you accept and agree to be bound by the terms and provision of this agreement. In addition, when using these particular services, you shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services. If you do not agree to abide by the above, please do not use this service.

Legal Titles
By working with Doug Sands and End Agoraphobia, you understand and accept that Doug Sands is a certified hypnotist — not a medical doctor or therapist. Any advice, help, and/or services provided by Doug Sands are not clinical diagnoses or prescriptions.

Privacy Policy
Like medical professionals, hypnotists are bound by HIPAA standards. Any sensitive information you share with a hypnotist before, during, or after a session is protected by confidentiality law.

The current HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices describes how we use and disclose your protected health information or PHI, our legal duties with respect to your PHI, and your rights with respect to your PHI and how you may exercise them.

Email Privacy
Unless you specifically sign up for an email list or offer, you will never receive email campaigns from End Agoraphobia.

If you do sign up for an email offer, you give End Agoraphobia the right to send you more information on products and services. You can opt out of an email list at any time by clicking “unsubscribe” at the bottom of a page.

As a measure of accountability, End Agoraphobia reserves the right to record every interaction with a client. That may or may not include: emails, phone calls, and online video chat services like Zoom, Skype, and Zencastr.

These recordings are protected by HIPAA law. They may be used as proof of a clients’ use of these services, and to defend End Agoraphobia and its practitioners in a court of law.

By agreeing to, paying for, and/or undergoing sessions with a hypnotist, the client agrees that hypnosis cannot make anyone do anything they would not otherwise do. Any action they take at any time is their full responsibility. Doug Sands and End Agoraphobia accept no responsibility for changes the client chooses to make in their own lives.

All services must be paid in full before the service begins. Clients have the option to pay for multiple sessions in full or in a payment plan, but any individual session must be completely paid for before the session begins. If full payment is not received, no services will be provided.

If a client does not pay in full before the session, End Agoraphobia reserves the right to keep any payment already made for that session as forfeit for reserving the time.
Clients who reschedule the unpaid session will be able to credit the amount already paid towards the next session, minus the standard $75 rescheduling fee.

A session can be cancelled without any repercussions up until payment is made. Once payment is made for the session, any changes may be subject to a $75 rescheduling fee.

By paying for this service, you buy time with a hypnotist — not your results. Since much of the work depends on a client’s willingness to change, I cannot guarantee success and offer no refunds for finished sessions.

Again, there are no refunds for sessions already finished. Like seeing a doctor, the client pays for time with the hypnotist — not specific results.

Refunds will be offered for sessions that have not been used AND have been cancelled over 48 hours before the scheduled session begins. For more info on cancelling and rescheduling, see “Cancellations”

Refunds will be offered directly through the original credit card, or through a trusted payment site like Paypal or Venmo. All refunds may be documented.

Any session cancelled with more than 48 hours’ notice before the scheduled time is eligible for rescheduling or refunding.
Any session cancelled or rescheduled within 48 hours of the scheduled time is subject to either:

– A $75 rescheduling fee

– A forfeit of the payment for that session.

Any complaints can be sent to: Hello@EndAgoraphobia.com

There is no guarantee of a resolution. Complaints will be examined on an individual basis.

The client bears full responsibility for their happiness and health, whether physical, emotional, or mental.

The Right to Cancel
Doug Sands and any other hypnotist working with End Agoraphobia reserves the right to cancel a session with a client at any time. These parties also reserve the right to refuse service for any reason.

If cancelled within 48 hours of the scheduled time, the client will receive a refund for that session, or the ability to reschedule without the standard $75 fee.
