Terms and Conditions
Your journey matters to us
These terms and conditions govern your use of ‘seekingbalance.com.au’ (“the Site”).
For working one-on-one with Joey we have a client policy: please read our 1:1 client agreement.
The information contained on this Site and the courses purchased or available through the Site do not provide a substitute for medical advice, an examination, diagnosis or treatment from a physician or health care professional.
Do not use any information on the Site or courses purchased or available through ‘seekingbalance.com.au’ to make a diagnosis or replace a doctor’s judgment. The information found on the Site or contained in the courses available from SBI do not take the place of regular medical check-ups. If you have any concerns about your health, talk to a doctor. Also, do not disregard or delay seeking medical advice because of something you read on the Site or which forms part of a course purchased from SBI. Following tips or recommendations on the Site or contained in course material available from SBI does not assure you will be healthy. Recovery is a process, not an outcome. Your health is the result of many factors, some of which are not yet fully understood. It is important that you rely only on the advice of a health care professional to advise you on your specific situation. SBI does not claim to cure or eliminate any symptoms. The programs and courses available through SBI offer support tools and strategies to help the body recover in its own time and in its own way.
To the extent permitted by law, SBI accepts no liability for the accuracy or completeness or use of, nor any liability to update, the information provided on the Site or in course material available from the Site and SBI does not make any warranty of any kind, as to the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of the information or materials available on the Site or contained in course material available from SBI.
