Frequently asked questions
What is your introductory phone call?
I spend about 15-20 minutes gathering some information about you and what support you are looking for. I also share with you a little more about my process and how I work, and answer any follow up questions you may have.
How long are appointments?
Sessions are typically an hour in length to 75 minutes.
How often should I plan to continue scheduling sessions?
It really depends on you and the focus of the work. Some people get what they need in one session, and some people work with me for many years on a regular basis.
I do not require any commitments or contracts for working with me. We stop working together when either one of us or both of us feel it is appropriate to do so.
How do I schedule a session with you?
The first session is scheduled at the conclusion of the introductory phone call.
Follow up sessions are then scheduled at the end of each appointment, either in person or video if applicable.
When there has been a break for a period of time, a session can be scheduled by phone, email or text.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I predominately accept credit cards for payment. Cheque and/or cash are also fine. You will receive a receipt from me once your payment is processed.
What is your cancellation policy?
All sessions require a full 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule, otherwise you will be charged for the session in full.
Notice to cancel or reschedule must be received by me by phone, text message, or email. I will make reasonable effort to reschedule a session that is canceled in a timely manner.
During a single calendar year, there is one grace given for a missed appointment or late cancel. Thereafter, the cancellation policy is firm.
Exceptions: in the case where either party has become ill, either 24 hours before the session or the day of the session, cancellation without charge will be given.
Can you describe what working with you is like?
The first session is an assessment, where I gather more information as I get to know and understand you. I ask a lot of questions in order to build a deeper framework for how to best support you.
Where postural yoga is involved, an assessment will include some light hands-on work as well as verbal cues that guide you in your own somatic experience.
In later sessions of postural yoga, I may draw from assisted stretching techniques such as Thai Yoga Bodywork which may facilitate deeper releases and enable a greater overall improvement versus studying the poses unassisted on one’s own. This may then deepen the feeling of groundedness and greater physical embodiment.
Some sessions may include or be focused on reflecting on your inner experience, both in prior sessions and at home between sessions. This is an opportunity for you to reflect on the changes and insights you have been making through open-ended inquiry and reflective dialogue in a supported and nurturing environment.
At the end of a session there is usually an opportunity for integration, whether that is a short period of rest, quiet contemplation or brief exchange about the experience.
Spiritual mentoring and meditation sessions typically do not involve any physical practice such as lots of stretching or mobility movements. I listen deeply, ask open-ended questions, provided guided mental exercises as needed and provide reflections and feedback that are designed to bring you back in touch with the soul’s perspective.
Who are your clients?
People who find me are usually already on some type of spiritual path, have been exploring different modalities of healing or personal development, or are ready to step onto the path of deeper self exploration or healing.
