Best way to charge for coaching/consulting services: hourly, fixed, or?

Hello,

 

I have used UpWork for project-based work like copywriting, and I'd like to start offering coaching services, so meeting/service-based work. From those who do coaching or consulting, what is the best way to charge?

 

I don't see the hourly tracker working well, as I charge a fixed price per meeting, and I don't want to have to start or stop the tracker right on the hour or worry about it when in a session with a client. I'm worried about manual entry for hourly work because UpWork doesn't protect the payment, if the client doesn't pay.  If fixed, how do you manage it when it's not a contract for a series of sessions but one-to-one sessions as needed? 

 

Any insight would be great!  Thank you!

Fixed price. Another milestone can be added later, when next session agreed.
