Before I start any research, I will always have an initial free consultation by email or telephone to find out what information you already have, establish your requirements and agree a budget. I will not exceed the agreed time or budget without your prior approval.

I ask for full payment in advance on commissions up to £100.00. If over £100.00, staged payments will be agreed. Payment can be with a UK cheque or by PayPal.

(If you choose to pay with PayPal, you do not have to have an account, but can pay with your usual credit or debit card by clicking on the button below.)
