Ah, terms and conditions….Don’t you just love ’em?

A bit tedious, but very necessary.

Please read, so we both know where we stand.



The Gentle Journal Company is part of melmorrisjones.com and these Terms of Service apply to both. Everything I offer on melmorrisjones.com and thegentlejournalcompany.com has been created as a result of my own experiences, research on the internet and reading countless books. This research is not exhaustive.

While I can guarantee that I have your best interests at heart and what I offer is designed to help you, people are emotionally diverse therefore I can make NO GUARANTEE that using any of my resources or being coached by me WILL produce the results you are hoping for.

Your use of any of my resources, free of charge or paid for, is undertaken entirely at your own risk and I accept no liability.



I am not a mental health professional; if you think you may be suffering from mental health issues I urge you to seek professional help.


Third Party Resources

Any recommendations I make regarding the work of other people and organisations are based on my own personal opinion of their effectiveness. It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself that these recommendations are right for you.

I take no responsibility for the content provided by other people and organisations.

Recommendations include but are not limited to: links to external websites, books, blogs, podcasts, webinars, TV programmes, courses, videos and audios.

If I recommend a product for which I am an affiliate and will earn commission should you purchase through my affiliate link then I will be transparent about this. I will only affiliate with products that I believe are relevant and useful for my audience.



The protection of your personal information is paramount.

Any personal information you provide, such as your name, email address and country of residence, will only be used to facilitate the delivery of products or services you purchase or subscribe to from melmorrisjones.com or thegentlejournal.com.
