The court said it would last about 30 minutes, but don't i have to meet with the barrister before, so I can tell her what's going on?

Barristers fees tend to include the hearing and waiting time, whereas solicitors tend to charge by the hour. If you do use someone through the direct access scheme you should expect the 'brief fee' to cover the barrister's prep time, taking your instructions and the hearing. Confirm this with their clerk.
