I know my time is worth £200ph – because I’ve charged that much without people fainting (they even invite me back again…). But this service is primarily designed for those who genuinely can’t afford that much. This is for the people who have to fight hard to survive every day. So I’m setting this up on a sliding scale of £20-200 for the first hour. If I feel we’re on the same page, re values and intentions, I’ll give you a first hour for £20 (in some cases I’ll even do freebies), and for others I’ll charge more and reserve the excess to cover even more low-cost and free sessions.
Beyond that, let’s see what happens – perhaps we’ll organise a regular session at a different rate that suits us both; perhaps we’ll collaborate on something more long term – who knows. But let’s just have a conversation – you talk, I’ll listen and ask strategic questions, and we’ll see what signals I can help you find through your noise.
How can I afford such a low rate? I’m offering the sliding scale so that commercial organisations and others who can pay more can book my time and ‘pay it forward’. I’m also finding alternative funding sources to help subsidise the freebies. But it’s the indies/grassroots I want to work with more than anyone – because I know how it feels to be on your own, trying to be part of the movements which make the world a better place. I know what it’s like to need help and not be able to afford to access it. And I know your voice and your work matters. So hit me up!

£0 – subsidised, free consult
