After having been a freelancer and foreigner in Spain for just over 8 consecutive years, I am no stranger to visa applications, autorizaciones de regreso and enduring the long processing times and seemingly neverending lines at the Extranjería. And now, seven visa applications and renewals later, a widely read post on how to make the switch to become a freelancer and dozens of emails and messages in between, I’m pleased to offer professional advice and services to my readers.

If you are considering applying for the self-employed/freelance visa (autónomo) from your home country or doing student visa modification to cuenta propia in the next few months to a year, I would love to help guide you through the process and offer valuable advice and tips. I had no one to hold my hand back in 2017 when I set out to do this so I would love to be the person who can provide the support and straightforward answers you are looking for.

The following are my rates for 2023.

(Rates may be subject to an annual increase)


26€ for a one-hour session in which you can ask me all of the questions you would like about how to become a freelancer in Spain or detailed advice on how to get married in Gibraltar (or both processes could be equally discussed in the session).

Special rates:

20€/hour for 5 one-hour coaching or informational sessions* (100€ total). Each session will be broken down into the following (or adapted to your specific situation): Discussing Your Career Goals and Options, Analyzing and Optimizing Your CV/Resumé, Working on Your Specific Case and Relevant Time in Spain, Business Plan Mini-Workshop and lastly, An Exclusive Q&A – where you can ask me as many questions as you need about becoming a freelancer and how to do the process.

*If you are an auxiliar de conversación and you are looking to do the student visa modification process, I am offering the above package of sessions for 18€/hour (90€ total).*

Payment will be discussed upon initial contact and once the consulting sessions are booked. If you choose one of the session packages, an upfront payment is kindly asked.

What do you need to do next?

If you are serious about using my services, first fill out a set of screening questions I have gathered in this Google Form. This will give me the chance to review your unique situation and get to know you a little bit before we first meet. In return, you will be able to gather and organize your thoughts so it’s a win-win for both of us.

You will have the flexibility to schedule these sessions according to my availability but you can choose to do them at the pace that best fits your situation.

Please choose a time slot from my Google Calendar for an initial 30-40-minute Interest Session. Or contact me via sarah (dot) willats 88 (at) gmail (dot) com to introduce yourself and your request.

I look forward to connecting with you and helping you through one of these processes!

To your success,
