This is primarily up to you! Client led as it were. I personally prefer face to face work where we can interact at as natural a level as possible; hearing and seeing all those posssibly unconscious behaviours that may be missed over the phone. But I am happy to work over the phone and may consider Skype. Words on a screen never say it all and we may not need it all said-you may have picked up on this point when reading The Model, so if preferable, even if just at first, we can e-mail.
We will formulate a contract that can be revised but which will give us some bounderies and limits on what we want to achieve together and Chryseis will charge at the mutually agreed rate-we work with a sliding scale of costs and this would be expected within a month of any work done. The intial assessment of each other is of course FREE.
