    Since you live in the UK, is there some obscure middle ages law that allows you to assert the right to trial by combat, or perhaps a duel?

    Don't be an idiot. Law > contract.

    EVE once was about internet spaceships. Then those became serious business.
    Now all that is left is serious business, and spaceships are docked for two years till after the Dust of Incarna

    What they gave her, or what you are sharing is a receipt for a 10 pound consultation fee, which is non-refundable blah blah blah. I see nothing about the session she received nor the 15 future sessions she paid for. Unless there is something else contractual she signed they need to give the money back.
    ....there is a whole post there that I am not going to TD;LR...
    I read the whole post. Twice even! You make it sound like she was charged an amount without her knowing the amount she was being charged. The piece of paper mentioned no refunds, it also only mentioned 10 pounds (edit: yes yes I know the follow on same day treatment gets added). Are they trying to insist that a verbal agreement for a prepaid 15 sessions far above the stated payment is ok? Was there a contract for those treatments that she did sign? Is there a receipt? Why did she only learn the amount later and not on the spot?

    Fuck that shit, get the money back.

    Nah, the great hollow is that huge archtree. You can probably try waiting. If you are, yes.

    She hasnt signed a contract. That registration form is merely a release of liabilility and doesnt in any way constitute an obligation to pay for 15 sessions. This kind of situation is why credit cards are awesome - tell them its fraud and let them fight it out.

    Is there some reason she cant do the above?
    Did she follow this advice?
