F.A.Q


How do I make an appointment?

There are several ways you could get in touch with me.

This web page has an online form which you can use to send me an email message. I will respond as soon as I can and we can correspond by email or by telephone.

You could telephone me. Because I turn my phone off sometimes this may mean you get a voicemail message. Please do leave a message and I will call you back.

You could send an SMS text. I tend to look at the end of the day and so will not reply immediately. However I do always respond to voice message, email and SMS text. 

How much is a therapy session?

My charges differ according to location.

A session in Bristol is £45. In Weston super Mare it is £40. This difference is due to the additional cost of the venue I use.

I take payment in cash or I have a card machine. Payment is made at each session. I charge for missed sessions unless 48hours notice is given.

How long will I need to attend therapy for?

Everyone has different needs, which we can discuss from the outset. I do not tend to prescribe a particular number of sessions. We decide together how therapy is going and review this periodically.

You can expect to continue for at least six weeks and some people will continue for several months or even a number of years. This depends on how you feel about therapy and what you would like the outcome to be.

Where is the therapy room?

I have two different locations, in Central Bristol & Weston super Mare. Once we have made your first appointment I will send you exact details of the address and instructions for the appointment. This will include details of parking and so on.

Neither venue has a waiting room and so it is important to arrive at your appointment time, so I can prepare for our session together.

I’m in a crisis, I need help now, what shall I do?

When you feel desperate it is important to connect with someone who you can trust. Reaching out can be hard but it will help in a time of crisis. Telephone or meet up with a friend. It may not be necessary to talk about your difficulties, instead just being in contact with someone who knows you can help you feel safe. In the middle of the night the Samaritans can help too. Telephone  116 123. You may not have to speak straight away, and they will understand how to be with you in your darkest times. Hold on, you will get through this.
