ONE-ON-ONE, AT THE TABLE WITH TESS.

A place to unfold—

Have questions? 

A specific topic of focus? 

An idea you want to explore?

Magnifique!

Bring it all to the table (via zoom).

What does this 'one-on-one' package include:

1. A consultation email and questionnaire. 

Upon booking an intake questionnaire will be sent to you so that Tess can take the time to thoughtfully get to know you prior to the zoom session. The questionnaire allows Tess to prepare the table in a way that makes space for intimacy and transparency. The more thorough you are with your answers the more Tess will be able to plan the session in a way that is helpful creatively and practically—guiding the hour together in a way that is curated and tailored to your specific creative needs. This is a creative act of hospitality.

2. A 90 minute session at the table with Tess (via zoom or in person).

The hour and a half will involve a pre-planned order and flow, with plenty of space for improvisation (via zoom). Tess' hope is to transparently and generously share her creative and practical findings, ones that have been forged and found on the floors and heights in her 25 years of industry experience working (and playing) as a multi-dimensional artist. Her hope is that you would walk away from the session with personal clarity, points of reference, contacts, momentum and encouragement, carried by a sense of purpose with clear points of direction. Tess aims to put everything bare on the table (no gate-keeping) to share her learnings, mistakes and wins — no question is too big or impolite. This is an honest communion of creativity—a place to unfold, a place to find words, a place to allow your creative works to materialise tangibly in an intimate and safe space.

3. Table minutes

Within 24 hours of your time with Tess, you will receive your intimate 'Table-notes'. These are a generous re-cap of everything shared at the table with beautiful love-notes of encouragement intertwined within the methodics of it all. This is a way to digest the largesse of what will be shared within the one hour together.

4. A one month gifted subscription to Tess' on-line publication 'Catching Shower Flowers' 

This is a little "I love you" from Tess. Catching Shower Flowers is the place Tess' work lives—This gift is an invitation into her art via Substack. This will allow you to acquaint with the app, Tess' work, whilst having access to the internal chat feature where you can be part of group inquiries, writing prompts and the beautiful work that unfolds there. 

5. 50% off any sessions required after your first meeting with Tess.

If you wish to book on-going meetings on a regular basis with Tess eg: a follow-up session or a series of on-going sessions over the duration of time, you will be given a discount code post your first meeting that will allow you to book with a 50% discount code, this will be emailed to you after your initial session. These calls don't require a questionnaire upon booking, they are more for the utilisation of touching base along the time-line of your creative projects if you feel you need some further guidance or sound boarding along the way. 

Below is the generous scope of things that can be transparently explored together at the table—

  • An advising session about a specific project or topic that you want help with—to brainstorm, plan, process, timeline, edit, or troubleshoot.

Things to consider before you book…

IMPORTANT: Tess is not a mental health professional, life coach or a licensed therapist. A One-on-One meeting with Tess is for the soul purpose of creative guidance / mentorship. This offering is an invitation for creative guidance and conversation at the table—an honest place, where Tess will generously share and offer transparently and open-handedly the things found and foraged in her 25 years of experience in the creative industry. Creatively, there is nothing you are not allowed to ask if it means the answer will help get you where you need to go, creatively.

---------------------

PLEASE NOTE: Post meeting Tess will not answer further questions in on-going email liaison, we recommend a follow-up time at the table if you wish to explore new topics or topics that might beautifully eventuate from your time together. Tess will move thoroughly through all the valuable questions you have in your initial meeting with as many answers as possible— which is why it is very important that the questionnaire is completed thoughtfully and strategically prior to meeting with Tess so she is able to diligently prepare before meeting with you. Her heart is that this would be a valuable investment and a timeless experience in your creative journey, a place to meet where vision and momentum is cast over your projects and dreams.
