Will you make my decision for me?
Absolutely not! You are the best, the only person who should be making a decision that’s yours to make. Decision Treehouse helps you towards making your decision with more clarity and confidence.
How much does this cost?
That’s up to you, we operate on a pay what you want basis.
How long does a Decision Treehouse conversation last?
As each individual and each decision is unique, we don’t follow a rigid format or strict formula so this very much depends on your needs. The important question is not how much time, but having enough time for you to think things through. Although the length of conversations varies, as a rough guide they average between 40 and 60 minutes.
Is this confidential?
Privacy and confidentiality is a top priority – everything discussed is always treated in strictest confidence. And unless you give us explicit permission to publish a testimonial, we will never reveal your identity as someone who has used the Decision Treehouse service. We need your email to confirm the time of your booking and provide your access details, but we will never share your contact details.
Can I get a recording of my conversation?
This can be possible, but only if you request a recording at or before the beginning of your conversation. We do not routinely record conversations – you need to request this.
What kind of decisions does this work for?
Any decision that you have or want to make! Since the Decision Treehouse service helps you establish your priorities, consider your options and tap into your own wisdom and knowledge, it can be helpful across a wide range of decisions: personal, career and business.
Of course, some decisions may not be appropriate for you alone to make, and need other people to be involved in the decision making process. In such cases Decision Treehouse can still help you clarify the approach you want to take, and where relevant, who else you wish to get involved, and the role you would like to take in the decision making process.
Some decisions require specialist professional legal, medical, financial or other advice. Decision Treehouse does not give such any advice, it is your responsibility and you are encouraged to seek any relevant professional advice you may need. On that understanding, you are welcome to use Decision Treehouse to clarify your own aims and priorities and perhaps identify the kind of specialised information and advice you want to seek.
Which decision making model do you work to?
Decision Treehouse prefers to avoid the restriction of being tied to one particular model and use to freedom to approach each decision afresh without making assumptions.
There are many different decision making models! Some can be very helpful for certain kinds of decisions. Some people have a natural affinity with some models more than others. However helpful models may be, approaching your decision as unique is more important than attempting to fit your situation into a predetermined model.
Do you use particular decision making tools?
No! There are many different approaches to decision making, and many different kind of decisions. Some tools can be very useful for some decisions. But rather like the saying “if you only have a hammer everything looks like a nail”, it’s wise to avoid being hooked on any one tool or set of tools!
Will I definitely have made a decision during the call?
Not necessarily. People often find the decision they want to make becomes clear during the call, but sometimes it becomes obvious that more information is needed, other people need to be consulted or involved, or it would be wise to wait until relevant events have happened.
Will you help me improve my decision making skills?
Not directly – improving your decision making skills can take some time! Decision Treehouse is here to help you with a decision you’re facing now.
Clients have said that using Decision Treehouse has encouraged them to recognise the skills they have, build on those and develop others. Besides people who are quite confident making some kinds of decisions can still struggle with others.
Getting help doesn’t mean you lack skills -it can mean you’re smart enough to recognise that decision making help to take a fresh perspective can empower you to access and utilise your own insights, awareness, experience, knowledge and skills more effectively!
