All information and coaching provided by Pinch Me Living, and Bernadette Logue (as the representative of Pinch Me Living) is educational in nature and is offered only as general information, and in no way is intended, nor should it be considered to be, psychological or medical advice for any aspect of your wellbeing.

Coaching and energy work provided is advisory only and clients must take full responsibility for their participation in the coaching and energy work sessions provided. Clients must take full responsibility for their responses and actions during and following any coaching and energy work sessions.

Clients must disclose any health or wellbeing concerns that may impact upon their ability to participate in coaching and energy work sessions, or which may in any way be impacted upon by their participation in coaching and energy work sessions.

Clients must undertake to look after their health and wellbeing throughout and after coaching and energy work provided and to advise Pinch Me Living immediately if their situation should change in relation to either.

Clients must disclose any other coaching, energy work, healing, therapy, treatment or counselling they are receiving, and accept responsibility for advising their other coaches, healers, therapists, treatment providers, healthcare professionals and/or counsellors that they are participating in coaching and/or energy work with Pinch Me Living.

Clients accept that Pinch Me Living provides peak performance coaching, life coaching, spiritual coaching, and energy work applicable for personal and professional application, and that Bernadette Logue, as the individual representing Pinch Me Living, is not a psychotherapist, psychologist, therapist, counsellor or registered health or well-being practitioner. Clients acknowledge that the products and services of Pinch Me Living are in no way designed as a substitute for the care, support or instruction of registered, qualified health and wellbeing practitioners.

Clients will be required to complete a Declaration Form prior to commencing coaching and energy work sessions. Such information is held in the strictest of confidence.

Clients agree to provide full and accurate information in the abovementioned Declaration Form, in response to the questions held within, and agree to provide full and accurate information in response to any further questions asked of them during coaching and energy work sessions.

Clients acknowledge that any use of the technique known as “Tapping”, during private session/s and/or group programs with Bernadette, is provided to them on the basis that they have read and accepted this disclaimer, as part of their registration process. They will be asked to review and accept this disclaimer prior to each registration for private sessions and/or group programs.

Clients acknowledge that by participating in private session/s and/or group programs they may be introduced to information about, and ways to use, Tapping to support their personal growth, where it is deemed potentially helpful. "Tapping" is a technique that works with the energy in the body, and is a part of a growing field known as energy psychology. Tapping, based upon ancient Chinese wisdom for wellness, is founded on the idea that the balance of the body’s subtle energies are important for spiritual, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, and those energies can be balanced by stimulating meridian end points on the body. By following a simple process of gentle tapping on those meridian end points, while focusing on issues that have associated emotional distress, it is possible to reduce the intensity of those emotions and change our perspective of issues. Tapping is a tool that can be used independently by clients for their own self-help, or in coaching sessions for their personal growth, or for more serious physical, mental and emotional issues it is recommended clients seek support from a registered healthcare professional who may guide them through the technique under their instruction.

By participating in coaching, energy work and/or group programs with Bernadette, clients acknowledge she is not a registered healthcare professional and that the use of Tapping with Bernadette is solely for the purpose of supporting them to learn and use this tool for themselves in regards to general self-help, or to support their personal growth journey during coaching sessions or group programs.

While there is a growing body of research findings available online regarding the benefits of Tapping, it is generally considered an alternative wellbeing modality, seen as a complementary tool which can be considered for use alongside the accepted practises provided by registered health and wellbeing practitioners. It is not in any way, and should not be considered as, a substitute for professional healthcare for physical, mental or emotional wellbeing.

Clients acknowledge that while engaging in private session/s and/or group programs, they have the right to choose whether or not to participate in Tapping, and if they choose to participate they do so of their own free will, and assume and accept all responsibility for any risks associated. While participating in Tapping, clients acknowledge that part of the technique involves focusing on issues of emotional distress, and this may include recalling past events, memories or experiences. Clients acknowledge that at any time they are not comfortable doing so, they will take responsibility for ceasing use of the technique immediately. While many people report positive experiences with Tapping, clients are hereby informed that it is also a possibility to experience mental and emotional distress, or physical discomfort during or after the process. If clients experience discomfort or negative side effects, they are asked to stop use of the technique and it is recommended that they consult a registered health and wellbeing professional where appropriate.

Tapping is not being suggested in any private session/s and/or group programs as a cure, treatment or prevention tool for any mental/emotional disorder or physical health issue. It is strongly advised that clients seek appropriate care from registered health and wellbeing professionals, and treat Tapping as an alternative personal growth tool that may act as a complement.

Clients acknowledge that coaching and energy work sessions with Bernadette may be recorded into audio format (upon the client's request) for the sole purpose of providing that client with an audio recording of their session/s afterwards - as a valuable resource for reflection to listen back to. Clients acknowledge that they have the option to choose whether their sessions are recorded, and if they do not wish to have their session/s recorded in this way at any time, they will inform Bernadette.

Clients acknowledge that any live video or audio broadcasts provided as part of group classes, programs, courses or workshops may be recorded, for the purposes of providing that recording to participants for their reflection, or for the purpose of sharing that recording on the Pinch Me Living website and/or social media channels for general public use.  Such video and audio recordings will be of Bernadette, and will not capture on video or audio any participants, but may include reference to participants questions and comments.
