There is a cost to running to the business of Daniel Picave. The organisation has office costs, people costs, transport costs and professional costs all of which must be recovered. If there is no recovery of these costs, there is no Daniel Picave. At Daniel Picave we also understand that we have an obligation to our clients to ensure that, through our fee structure, we are as accessible as possible to as many people as possible. We believe that our fee structure accurately strikes the balance between being representative of the knowledge, experience and talent that we bring and being fair and reasonable.
We hope you think so too and we look forward to working with you.

Social Responsibility & Charitable Giving
At Daniel Picave we recognise that we have an obligation not only to our clients but to the wider society. To discharge that obligation, we have a passionate social responsibility policy which results in our funding a pro bono bursary scheme and supporting the work of key charities.
Daniel Picave Pro Bono Bursary Scheme – 5% of our gross income from the Coaching & Counselling product and the McKenzie Friend & Lay Advocate product is automatically transferred to a bursary account. This bursary account allows Daniel Picave to undertake pro bono work with clients presenting an extreme set of circumstances and no financial means of securing assistance. All cases are considered on their own merits.
Key Charities – A further 5% of our gross income from the Coaching & Counselling product and the McKenzie Friend & Lay Advocate product is automatically donated to our nominated charity each year. The nominated charity for 2021/22 is The Zinthiya Trust.
