One-on-One Consultation

"You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes."
A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

Annie Payne - professional personal historianSometimes you need a little extra help to create something more than a basic family history.

Maybe you're feeling overwhelmed by the sheer size of the project and you need advice on how to get started.

As a Personal Historian I also do one-on-one phone, Skype and e-mail consultations (and in-person consultations for people in the Adelaide area).

Your consultation will be tailored to your specific needs.

Here are a few of the topics we might discuss:

Using free resources to save you time and money.
How to tackle sensitive issues - e.g. divorce, family secrets, suicide.
How to structure your family history.
How to approach elderly relatives with failing memories.
How to deal with "untruths" and exaggeration.
How to create "person specific" interviews.
How to identify and develop themes in your life story.
How to avoid boring your readers.
How to deal with a refusal.
Interviewing techniques for "prickly" relatives.

Consultation/coaching with Annie – $125 for first hour (includes several hours of research and preparation based on preliminary information provided by you).

Additional consulting time – $75/hour
