Telephone

Preliminary Advice

Because many of the people who might benefit from our services are dealing with situations which are unfamiliar, confusing and possibly intimidating, they are often worried and in need of rapid reassurance that help is available. Therefore, we provide an initial free telephone consultation for all new clients. Based on this telephone consultation, we can then advise on how we think you can best proceed, and how best we can help with the situations. Sometimes this initial consultation is enough to allay the worries of the individual, making it easier to understand the situation and take the necessary decisions and actions. If this is successful, we are always happy to have helped!
