This is the outline for the basic request I usually get. I am able to tailor a package, or some other arrangement if you let me know what you’re looking for.
Here’s how this will work:
Please read the Disclaimer Page before proceeding.
You’ve decided you want to explore this method of support. First, make connection with me via email at PeerHelpJosh@gmail.com, and in a couple of sentences tell me your situation and your main concerns you’d like me to help with.
After reading your email, I will send you a response, giving a little bit of free advice and then asking anywhere from 5 to 15 questions about your specific situation that I’d like more information about before we move forward.
Do not answer these questions unless you want to move forward with the process. If you would like to continue, a $40 USD payment should be made via PayPal to PeerHelpJosh@gmail.com
At this point you have two options:
Communication via e-mail
After reading your answers to my questions, I will send you a response of no less than 500 words providing support, kindness, observations, suggestions, tools, resources and likely a few more questions. You can expect a response, unless otherwise noted, within 48 hours.
Communication via video chat or telephone
First, we will establish an agenda for our call, even if it’s as simple as answering the previous questions I sent or “Let’s see where this takes us.” Based on that agenda and what you’d like to talk about, we’ll have an exchange that lasts no less than 45 minutes and no more than 75 minutes. Depending on the direction of the call, I will provide support, kindness, observations, suggestions, tools, resources and likely a few more questions.
If you wish to continue in a peer counseling relationship with me after our initial emails or video chat/telephone call, the option is open to continue our communication at the rate of $30 for any of the choices listed above, re-upping as many times as you feel necessary.
