Single Session Therapy

There are occasions whereby you may find that you have one specific issue/problem which you would like to deal with quickly without the commitment of a continued course of therapy.  Single Session Therapy is designed specifically with that objective in mind.

Working with clients in a Single Session is not a new concept, with increases in health costs and long waiting lists Single Session Therapy is a cost effective psychotherapeutic approach to the more traditional regular approaches of weekly or bi-weekly appointments.

If you feel that you will benefit from Single Session Therapy the first step is to contact me by phone, or email, and I will arrange to send you a Client Form for completion.  Depending on the issue, you may be asked to complete an anxiety or health questionnaire. Following receipt of the forms I will contact you to arrange the following:

     Pre-Session chat

     The objective of the pre-session chat is for me to explain how the process works and to establish the goal for the 1:1 session.  This usually lasts for around 20-30 minutes. The appointment for the 1:1 session will be made following this chat.

     NB: If at this stage it is felt that Single Session therapy is inappropriate for the issue/problem then a more traditional form of therapy will be offered.

     1:1 Session

     Axbridge Studios will provide the venue for this session and will last approximately 55 minutes.  The session is recorded, a copy of which will be sent to you after the session with a written reminder list of the tasks agreed during the session.

     Follow-up Interview

     A follow up interview is undertaken around 3 months following the 1:1 session to establish the efficacy of the therapy.


Single Session Therapy is delivered and charged as a complete package and the cost for the package is £175.00. Payment in full can be made prior to the sessions via Internet Banking  or via cash or cheque at the 1:1 session.
