Relationship coaching and counselling

sophie2Sophia offers relationship coaching and counselling by skype to clients based outside North America, most often in the UK and Ireland. In North America, she is only able to offer coaching support for insurance reasons. Her standard charge is £50 for a 50-minute session.  Fifty percent of her clients are offered appointments on a sliding scale basis.  She currently has 3 slots available for sliding scale clients.  Priority will be given to those in financial need who are seeking support around sex and relationships, especially disabled people, LGBTQ individuals, BME clients and others who face additional barriers accessing appropriate support in their locality.

Her sliding scale rate is  £1 (or euro) per £1000 (or euro) of the clients’ annual income before tax per 50-minute session. Whether you are paying the full fee, or have sliding scale fees, you will receive a 10% discount if you pay in advance for 10. Sessions involving multiple people will be negotiated on request.

Sophia is open to engaging in written forms of online counselling or coaching that may be more accessible to some clients. This kind of counselling may be synchronous or asynchronous and would be at a similar cost to her skype counselling and coaching.

She offers a free 20-minute skype consultation to discuss your needs and to determine whether we are a good fit to work together.

Employment dispute coaching

Sophia also has a background in employment law and HR. She does not offer legal advice, but has been involved in hundreds of settlements and employment tribunal proceedings, specialising in cases that involve discrimination or unfair dismissal. She has taught employment law at postgraduate level for 8 years.

For coaching related to employment disputes, she offers a free 20-minute conversation about your case, its merits or aspects of conciliation or tribunal process that you are interested in. Following that she charges £50 per 50 minutes to coach you through the process of working out what you are making a claim for and what it might be worth in financial terms. For UK cases she may be able to act as an intermediary between you and ACAS. Fees for this would be negotiated on a case by case basis and start at £100.
