How to stop an interview from becoming a free consultation

I’ve noticed that a lot of my interviews as a freelance software engineer have become free consultation sessions. Since freelance interviews are more project based and less general job based, I understand why we talk specifics and what my plans are for completion but my last 3 “interviews” have been over an hour long and 1 the guy pretty much admitted that he was using it for a consultation and don’t need to hire me. I do offer consultations, but at a much higher price and these jobs have all been at my normally hourly work rate.

Do you have any tips on how to navigate interviews so I can preserve the relationship with the potential client, but also not give up too much.
