First my fees, then what I actually charge (yes, they are distinct and separate). Please read the whole page including the section on Cancelled & Missed Appointments.
Fees (per 45-60 minute session):
$279 for clients resident in the U.SA. – Click here for international currencies.
What I actually charge:
I work on a donation basis with a $25 minimum. I want people to be able to afford my work and affordability means something different to each individual. The only thing I ask is that you treat me the way you treat any of the other top quality practitioners in your life. If you are used to paying your healers $25 a session I will accept that, if you are used to paying $825 a session I’ll accept that too! My current clients cover the full spectrum from low to high. Please talk to me if you have concerns about any level of financial contribution.
For people who have their own consulting style business, I recommend giving me the same rate that you charge your clients.
For people with a regular paycheck, something around 3 times your pre-tax hourly rate is a good guide. This would be equivalent to $1.50 per hour for every thousand dollars you are earning per year (Example; $75 per hour if you are earning $50,000 a year).
Bear in mind that I can’t charge you what this work is really worth, for the same reason that I am very grateful that my own teachers and mentors never charged me what their work was truly worth to me; there isn’t enough money in the material world to pay for what spiritual growth is worth. That said, I want to make this work available to everybody who wants it. And so my question to you is …
What is a reasonable, honorable and affordable amount for you to pay that is respectful to both of us and our work together?

I am fine with you using whatever payment method works best for you.
If you are able, it would be perfectly legitimate to consider our business coaching sessions to be a tax deductible business expense.
Most people make their contributions for each individual session, some people make their donation once a month regardless of having multiple sessions during the month. Some people like to pay me ahead of time, most people send money the day of their session (either before or after) – and sometimes they have to look after their own finances a few days or more before they can look after mine.
I want the financial side to work for you while maintaining a relationship that is reasonable, honorable, and respectful to both you, me and the work. My preference would be to receive funds the day of our sessions (either before or after … and sooner rather than later will always put a smile on my face) – and yet I come back to what works for you?
After 38 years of earning a corporate salary, I am so very grateful for everything that my clients contribute to me while I live my passion. I bless each of you and every dollar you send. Thank you.
Cancelled & Missed Appointments
I wish I didn’t have to have a cancellation policy. That said, the following respects my time and boundaries – which I also want my clients to do for themselves.
I ask for a minimum of 12 hours notice when cancelling appointments.
When less than 12 hours notice is given, I will charge 50% of the session for the cancellation. Given that all my clients are operating on variations of a donation basis, that will amount to half of what you usually pay me for a session WITH A $25 MINIMUM for clients donating less than $50 per session.
When no notice is given (effectively a no show at the time of the appointment), I will charge 100% of the session for the cancellation. Given that all my clients are operating on variations of a donation basis, that will amount to 100% of what you usually pay me for a session WITH A $35 MINIMUM for clients donating less than $50 per session.Any outstanding balances and all cancellation fees must be paid ahead of your subsequent appointment.
I will absolutely waive this fee for medical emergencies but if you have concerns about fitting our appointments into your work schedule, let’s talk. In fact if you have ANY questions about this policy (or any other aspect of my work) please address your concerns with me as soon as possible.
