People with mental illnesses such as depression, psychoses, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorders, epilepsy or personality disorders must inform the trainer/coach in advance so that this can be taken into account.

People with psychological illnesses who have not made this known to the coach/trainer in advance, always take part in the sessions/trainings on their own responsibility.

Tessa van Nes strives for as much personal guidance and support as possible. However, in group training it is not always possible to monitor each participant individually.
