9 Answers | Asked by Joy Keller on Mar 07, 2012

Answered by Jocelyn Martin on Mar 07, 2012

I used to offer 30minute sessions, but dropped them a few years back. I always felt the sessions were rushed, that there was not enough time to meet the needs of the client and that the clients expected the same results as those that met we me for a full hour. Plus add in prep time and travel ...
