Sip & Share: De-Stress Chats on Zoom

Logo for Sip and Share

Do you need some tips and tricks on how to stress less during challenging or even traumatic situations? How about a “sounding board” for your business ideas or personal feelings? Do you just need someone to listen without judging you? These are the kinds of things we’ll do in Sip & Share sessions on Zoom. Both individuals and groups may take advantage of this offer.

keyboard with red key "Success"You don’t need to know how to use Zoom, because I do! I’ll set up our online meeting. It’s easy. All you have to do is click on the link that I’ll send you and then join me in conversation.

For those seeking life coaching, there are times when you simply need a quick conversation or an informal series of chats, versus a full-fledged life coaching plan and contract. This is the perfect alternative! However, you may reserve a specific number of time slots, by contract, if we so choose after discussing your needs in a free initial consultation. You also can book me for “regular” counseling and coaching sessions. Click Here for details.

Sipping is not required, but why not make things fun and keep yourself company with tea, coffee, a smoothie, or juice that is healthful?


CONFIDENTIALITY

illustration of Zoom meetingWhether we have a personal one-on-one private Sip & Share session or a group “seance,” I’ll keep all information strictly confidential.

Possible Exceptions. There are some circumstances in which we want others to access our talk.

  • One example is when the participant(s) want me to contact another group or individual for input, collaboration, referrals, or some other kind of assistance.
  • Another is when the participants want to record and share the conversation or to stream our conversation in real-time. Live-streaming would apply if we chose to use FaceBook live, for example, instead of Zoom. There are other options.
  • We are legally required to have the permission of each participant – including mine – for any recording, publication, or sharing of a session. Depending on the nature of the event, that could be informal, verbal consent. In rare circumstances, I would require a signed release for use of audio and visual materials in advance of the session.

Why Can I Help You Through Sip & Share?

I attract all good things - positive affirmation words - handwriting on a napkin with a yellow cup of coffee

My gift is the ability to help people gain deep insight into situations, into themselves, and into potential resolutions to problems. This enables folks to stress less and to make productive changes in their lives.

Sample comments from people whom I served in the past as a counselor or as a holistic healer

 “It felt Holy!” 

“Everything you said was right on target.  I hadn’t realized those things still bothered me.” 

“Never before in my life have I felt such peace and such ecstasy.” 

“The Lord has given you many gifts!” 

“This is the first time in years that I’ve been pain-free!” 

“I trust you completely.”


How Long Is a Sip & Share Session?

Sip & Share sessions include the following options: 15-minutes; 30-minutes; 45-minutes; 60 minutes. Your choice.

If we get started, and you want to keep going after time is up, we can do that, if my schedule allows. Otherwise, we’ll book more time at the next mutually convenient time slot.

NOTE: I’m on a schedule. I start and end ON TIME!alarm clock

My time has been reserved for you, which means no other paying client may have that slot, so I do not issue refunds for “no shows.”

Incidentally, People Also Ask for…

  • During this pandemic, most requests have been for “healing in absentia” aka “distance healing,” and we have had some great results. Let me know if you would prefer this to a Sip & Share session.
  • My customized HypnoMeditations also are very popular. They are highly effective for daily use as affirmations and in overcoming beliefs and feelings which no longer serve one well. They are more expensive because creating them takes several hours. My clients, however, have found them well worth the money.
  • I also teach a wide variety of classes for personal or professional development. They are for groups and for individuals. Contact me, if interested.

Do We Have to Sip & Share on Zoom?

Webinar, Video, Call, Cam, Chat, ZoomNo. I do want to see the person with whom I’m talking, if possible. However, I know a lot of folks feel the effects of aging or illness and don’t want to be seen.

If you’re one of those, I may accommodate you with a Zoom audio-only session, a Facebook audio-only chat, or a phone call, instead. I shall vet you first, though, as I don’t want to deal with hackers or people with ill intent who are trying to be anonymous by not presenting photos of themselves or speaking to me “face to face.”

We can use the chat feature in Messenger, and – if you prefer to set up the meeting on some other platform, like Webex, Skype, etcetera, we can do that; but, at this juncture, I don’t know how to host those platforms.

Sip & Share Refund Policy

https://www.google.com/search?q=solopreneur+meaning&oq=solopreneur&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l7.11751j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8Again, I have reserved my time for you. That means no other paying client may have that slot. Therefore, I do not give refunds or the option to reschedule for “no shows.” It also means we start and end on time, so I can honor other bookings. Typically, I open the Zoom session up to five minutes early – if circumstances allow – so that we can resolve technical issues that might arise.

  • If severe technical difficulties (power outages, etc.) prevent our meeting, the option is to reschedule the session.
  • If something happens that prevents me from conducting the session, you are entitled either to a rescheduled appointment or to a refund.
  • I require 24-hours advance notice of cancellations in order for your payment to be applied to a future session.
