Please find below the answers to some of the questions I am frequently asked. If you still have any questions, please contact me.
Yes I am currently expanding my private practice and have availability at present for both online and in-person sessions.
I have a sliding scale of between £55 and £75 per session depending on what is affordable for you.
Yes I offer a free 20 minute introductory consultation where we can discuss what you are looking for and how my therapy approach can help.
Occasionally I agree concessions for weekly therapy.
The full fee is payable for missed or cancelled sessions with less than a fortnight’s notice.
This will depend on the complexity of what you want to work on. After one or two exploratory sessions, we may agree a fixed number of sessions or agree ongoing sessions.
If you think you want to end ongoing sessions, I would ask you to discuss with me in advance so that we have time in sessions to reflect together and work through any issues connected to ending.
The therapy is dialogue based. We will discuss your difficulties and explore together ways of resolving them. At times touch can be useful in the Somatic Experiencing work as a way of offering further support or to help strengthen your awareness in different ways. I will always check with you prior to using touch. It is perfectly possible to work in an SE way without touch.
Not necessarily as you may not recall a specific trauma but still be experiencing stress effects in your body and mind. It is possible to work in a somatic way without cognitively knowing the meaning of the symptoms you have.
I work from a spacious therapy room in a quiet complementary therapy centre in Glastonbury, Somerset. I will send you directions to the venue when we agree an initial appointment
