Consultations

I offer private consultations at a reasonable and ethically priced rate from an office in Unley, South Australia.  We will agree on a pro rata rate for clients who are struggling financially.  I am happy to offer counselling especially to clients who otherwise really want some help but would not otherwise be able to afford it at normal rates.
