I have an initial phone call to make sure they will be a good fit for my team and from here we arrange a face to face or zoomcall consultation to unpack their story and see what it is that is getting in the way of them moving forward. After initial consultation we do a structural assessment to clear for injuries and structural anomalies so I know exactly how to program for each new client.
