Consultation, agreements, fees and contact details

An initial consultation of an hour would give you the space to talk about what brings you to therapy and for me to assess how we might work together. This meeting would give you a sense of how I work, and for both of us, of how we would work together. There is no obligation after this initial session to commit to further work together.

We would be thinking about whether you are looking at time-limited or ongoing therapy. Shorter term work tends to be focused on a particular issue or area that you wanted to work with, with the aim of helping you re-connect with your strengths and find new ways of coping. Shorter term EMDR work would be considered where you have experienced a single traumatic incident, but have been otherwise relatively settled and stable. Longer term, open ended psychotherapy, allows space for a deeper exploration and working through of underlying and unconscious dynamics.

Sessions are for an hour, or 90 minutes for EMDR therapy, and I would offer you a session time at the same time each week, working once weekly, or sometimes twice weekly. I would request that you commit to this time, which is for you and you alone, with a limited number of breaks (arranged in advance).

My fee is £45 for an hour long session, including for the initial consultation. I have limited lower cost places available in Frome.

For EMDR work, where we have agreed to work shorter term with trauma following a single incident, my fee is £70 for each 90 minute session. Where EMDR is integrated into ongoing work the fee is £45 an hour, and longer sessions may be negotiated as required.

I work in Frome, BA11 Monday-Thursday, a 5 minute walk from the town centre and from the train station.

and at The Practice Rooms in Central Bath on a Friday.
