What to expect at your first appointment and general information to know before you sit down with me:
Often times people come in a bit nervous on their first visit. That’s totally normal. The “what if’s” start running through people’s heads, and before they know it, their stomach is in a knot. Relax, most people are nervous, or nervous excited their first time.
I have a very casual conversational style. Most people feel completely at home within a few minutes after we start.
When you arrive, I’ll ask you to fill out some very basic paperwork, mostly for your contact information, but because I work as a coach/hypnotist as well, there are questions about your reason for being with me, etc. No pressure. Fill out what is comfortable for you, and you don’t need a specific reason for working with me. Many of my regular clients remark that on the days they have “nothing to talk about” they get the best “move it forward!” information.
Reason, no reason, it’s all good. It’s just a little paperwork
Beyond that, we’ll sit down together and I have a pretty standard, “get to know me” talk, which is really a “here’s the weird stuff I do during a session, don’t think I’m crazy, please” talk.
- I talk with my hands…A LOT.
- If I don’t look at you most of your session, don’t be offended. While I’m reading you, I’m in communication with what I refer to as your Divine Guidance System; Spirit Guides, Angelic realm, passed on loved ones’, Ascended Masters, etc. Because I’m talking to “them” I may not be looking at you. Also, I am watching the light of your energy field as it changes and moves. This gives me information about your body, mind, Spirit, emotions as well as things about how you’re receiving the information that’s coming through.
- I often refer to “them”, “their” or “us” or “we”. References like that are references to your Divine Guidance system, which I often put myself in with if I personally agree with what they’re saying/asking.
Beyond the oddities that are just normal for me, here there are a few other things people like to know before their reading/healing session.
What if my time runs over?
I will be attentive to the time, and do my best to stay on schedule, for my benefit and yours. Please be mindful if you book a half hour, one hour, or 90-minute session, I need to stop the session at the scheduled end time. I’m not trying to be rude, I’m trying to be fair, to myself and to all of my other clients. Thank you for your consideration.
How do I go about booking another session?
Most people like to have a follow up visit. The vast majority of my clients are repeat clients. Some are working to create completely new lives for themselves and want to meet every couple weeks or once a month until they feel like they’re ready to fly. Others see me once a quarter, or a couple times a year, or even once a year for their annual “tune up”. Whatever the situation is for you, I’m always delighted when my clients see value in the work that I do to the point that they include me as a necessary part of their personal/Spiritual development and self-care.
Scheduling your next appointment?
Follow up appointments are typically booked before the person leaves me office. If you need to check a schedule, or want to think about it, that’s just fine. Connect with me again when it fits for you. I’m available by text, email, phone and Facebook messenger. I won’t lie, Facebook is not a place I spend much time and its hard for me to work between too many avenues, so I much prefer email, text or phone.
When you contact me, if you have specific days/times that you need, please include that information in your contact. Thank you.
Please don’t wait until you NEED ME. I generally book a 2-3 months in advance, and availability depends on how tight your schedule needs are, so in some cases its further out than that. Please do not wait until you really NEED TO GET IN to contact me.
What if I want to get in sooner?
I do have a waiting list. If you want an appointment sooner than a first available there is a process for that. In order to keep it fair for everyone, I insist people book an appointment so that we have something in the schedule. After that, I ask for the down payment to be made before I place people on the waiting list. Once the down payment is made, your name can be added to the wait list. I contact people by text message so I’ll need a phone number that accepts text messages. This is just about making best use of time. text messaging is fast. Sometimes a reschedule happens weeks in advance, but often its just a few days, or a few hours (emergencies happen) in advance. I work through the list by first on the list is first one contacted. If you don’t make an appointment, I will not put you on the wait list. This is done to be fair to everyone.
Can I record my sessions?
You are completely welcome to record your session, take notes, or nothing at all. Most folks record on their cell phones. Recording allows you to relax and be in the moment with the information so you’re not stuck in the past information trying to remember it. It’s a really handy tool. Some folks kick it old school and bring in cassette recorders (for those of you who don’t know what a cassette player/recorder is, Google, you’ll trip out…that means you’ll be shocked and amazed). You may also, or, take notes, that’s fine too, it’s just more work. In addition, you can do none of the above and just take what you remember and run with that. It’s all good. Do what works best for you. It’s your time/reading/healing session.
Can I bring another person with me to my session?
Some people bring a support person along to share the experience. That’s just fine with me. Sometimes I’m reading with someone who has dealt with really substantial challenges in life and feels a strong need to have someone with them during their session, either for a reading, or healing work. Please be picky about who you bring. Choose someone you trust completely, who knows your story/history and supports you unconditionally without their own attachment. Too often people get talked into bringing someone who WANTED TO COME ALONG who is a horrible choice for them to have in their session. If the person you’re bringing along is bossy, opinionated, takes over the conversation, tells you what your truth is instead of letting you talk/tell me what your truth is, I won’t be nice. Fair warning, I’ve asked people to leave because they were taking over and being disrespectful to my client, whom they were to be accompanying, and I’ll do it again. To be totally honest, I’ve seen sessions absolutely ruined by the wrong person being there ALONG SIDE the person who was being read. Here is the deal, you pay for the session either way. Be picky. If you want to bring someone for support, or to share the fun, bring someone who loves you, knows you, believes in you and will sit quietly and observe unless asked to join in. Trust me on this one.
If you’re bringing someone who also wants to be read, you need to let me know that in advance, please. I charge differently for groups, or split readings, and I will bill accordingly whether I have advanced notice or not, but I am way less inclined to give someone a break if they surprise me with another person/s wanting to be read that I didn’t know about. Let’s just take care of each other.
Can I ask questions?
If you have questions, ask them. I grew up with three older brothers, you almost can’t offend me. If you don’t understand something, please tell me. If you understand it but want more specific information, please tell me that as well. If you brought a list of questions for your session with you, that’s just great. We can take them one at a time and get you the clarity you’re wanting. Like the adage says, ‘The only dumb question is one that is never asked”, so please ask during our session time.
Can I contact you with follow up questions about my session?
Your information is not my information, it’s YOURS. I typically don’t remember what comes through during a person’s session so if you text, call or email me later, or see me out and about, I won’t remember what “they said” or what “they meant by…”. I simply won’t remember. It’s not personal, it’s just that I can’t humanly remember everybody’s everything and, its none of my business. My job is to be as clear of a channel for your Divine guidance as possible. If I’m attached to the information, or I’m trying to remember things, make associations, etc. I’m no longer clear, and that’s not good for you, or me. Please, if you have questions, ask them during our time together, because THAT time is all about YOU.
What if I didn’t like the information I got?
Just because you don’t agree, doesn’t make me wrong. Sometimes Spirit brings through information that won’t make sense to you; maybe its outside your conscious awareness, maybe it hasn’t happened yet and the writing is not on the wall of your life, so you don’t have awareness of it, maybe it’s a different perspective of a situation or person then what you currently hold. Regardless, if you don’t recognize something, again, tell me. I will ask Spirit to be more specific, or to give me other words, examples that hold true. I will push information back to them if I am not clear, or my client can’t grasp it, but when they push it back at me, I KNOW its truth. From that point, I don’t question them. I trust Spirit without limitation, and I’ve had it proven to me time and time again that they indeed do know what they’re talking about, even if we don’t see it, or understand it at the time. I just give it space to work its way out.
Hours of Business:
Tired of the same old, same old? Yeah, me too. That’s why I offer private party sessions!
It’s all the fun of one of my public gallery events, but with just YOUR favorite people.
If you’re looking for a fun shower, bachelorette, ladies night or “let’s get together” idea for you and some friends, this just might be it.
This event is hosted similar to my public galleries where everyone is together and individual readings are held opening, in front of everyone. I like to keep these events small so everyone gets several minutes of my time for a short but deep, intuitive reading.
Details: $450.00 for 2 hours, up to 8 people.
Private one on one readings:
In this event, one on one readings are held in private (space provided by host) so each participant has individual private time with me. Reading length is based on the amount of time and number of people scheduled by the host, for the event. I am available for a couple of hours, or an entire day.
Details: $250.00 per hour, number of people determined on individual basis
Corporate/Business/Community organization meetings and events:
I am able to accommodate larger groups on an open gallery format for meetings and events.
Exact fees and timelines to be determined on an individual basis. Please contact me for information and conversation about your next event.
Spirit always has lots to say, and I’m no slouch in that department either. Pick a topic, or choose from ones I can suggest, and I can create a custom format for your next event or meeting. Whether topics of Spirit, Intuition, Personal Development or Spirit of Business, bring something new to the table, or stage!
This is a great option for large or small groups.
In the area? No problem. If you’re within 20 minutes of my office there is no travel fee.
If you or your event sight are outside of the greater St. Cloud area there will be a fee for travel time. Typically, $10.00 for every 10 minutes beyond the first 20 minutes. (I tend to speed, and I’d much rather spend my time with you then in my car, so I won’t be taking longer than necessary to get there)
For information or to schedule any of the above options, please contact Anne directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 320-250-9402.
