Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you charge?
Your initial consultation is complimentary, no fees or charges are applied. Donations to the House of Vic Ryn Associated charities are welcomed.

Our fees will be discussed with you at the initial “get to know” meeting and will be set out in a letter of engagement if you decide to become a client. The level of fee varies and depends on which service you decide to subscribe to but we are totally transparent with our fees and we look to be fair in our charging structure – we are not the most expensive or the cheapest.

The “get to know” meeting is always at our expense.
