Open-ended

Therapy 

Therapeutic counselling in Wells, Somerset (and online) suitable for anxiety, depression, trauma, loneliness and emotional and mental distress.

I'm one of a minority of practitioners providing 90-minute sessions. Most offer 50-minutes for about £50 (this is the average cost of therapy and session length according to the BACP and the NHS). I give an extra 40-minutes to my clients at each session, so I charge an extra £40 (although you can book shorter sessions if you prefer).

From your point of view as a client, longer sessions mean more time to slown down and relax and connect with your feelings. It also means that the therapy overall may be shorter term, as you may reach the roots of your issues sooner, ultimately saving you time and money. 

We can meet at my office, which is accessible on the ground-floor of Wells Town Hall, or outdoors in Deer Park or the Combe. Meeting outdoors has the added element of the therapeutic value of nature connection, which for many clients is calming and uplifting for their spirits.


Therapy will be on a session by session basis - this could be weekly, fortnightly monthly or as ad hoc and flexible as needed. Some clients need only 1-3 sessions, others choose to be in therapy long-term. As mentioned, the standard cost for each session is £90 (paid in advance to secure the appointment). This price covers the cost of running a cutting-edge clinical practice including:

  • A multi-modal approach with wide-ranging research and contemporary depth methods for healing anxiety

  • Full qualifications and licenses to apply all the techniques that I utilise to help you to safely process any traumatic memories and stabilise your emotions

  • Clinical supervision with selected and trusted professional practitioners so that you receive the added benefit of their specialised knowledge and accountability to high standards of ethics in every private session with me

  • No interferences from any big impersonal organisation that will limit the open-ended work possible meaning that you can complete your therapy when you're ready, without outside pressure.

  • And all the benefits of working with a socially-responsible, small and beautiful community business.

The kindness and wholeheartedness in our genuine relationship, and my passion for research and scientific verve for evidence-based techniques are all of course freely-given from me to you. You'll also receive aftercare support, and I contactable by email or phone within working hours (Mon-Fri, 9-5) if you have any questions, or even afterhours when possible in emergencies.

I look forward to you getting in touch.
