As with all human service providers, Please understand that during busy periods, communication and email replies may be slower than usual.

Emails are my preferred mode of correspondence. If you do not hear back after 72 hours of an enquiry, please resend your enquiry as I have likely missed it and will never knowingly ignore an enquiry. Alternatively please use social media messages.
