Right guys, this is the last thing I'm going to post.
I realise this will not be popular but I have decided to take a break from this industry until I have graduated. I had intended on taking bookings this week and then breaking, however the stress of trying to finish my degree, keep up a positive image for work and provide the service that I expect from myself has finally become too much. I apologise for any disappointment this has caused, however I would rather be criticized for canceling a booking than to take your money when I know that the booking wouldn't be up to the high standards I hope I maintain.
Those of you who have studied for a degree will understand just how much pressure there is in the last term of uni, and I underestimated the impact that all this would have on my mental wellbeing. Although I absolutely love my job, it does take so much out of you and right now I simply don't have it in me to work. I never just go through the motions with my clients, I approach every booking with the enthusiasm and authenticity I believe every girl should be providing.
OP, I'm very upset that you chose to come straight on here rather than respond to the very heartfelt message I sent you explaining my reasons, however it is obviously your prerogative to do what you feel is fair. If you think I have been unreasonable and would rather I had seen you and not given you the service you deserve, this is obviously your opinion and you are very much entitled to it. However on this occasion I must stand by the fact that I have done the right thing by letting you know in plenty of time, rather than letting you waste your money on a session that would have been a disappointment for both of us.
I realise that this is now most likely going to turn into a huge discussion, but I cannot apologise anymore and if clients can't understand why I have made this decision then I'm afraid there is nothing more I can say on the matter.
Take care guys, see you in a month.
