Practicalities

January 2024
I’m taking time out of 1:1 work from the beginning of February until the end of October.
I don’t know what will gestate in this 9 months, though I do know that I’m returning to work at the beginning of November. I’ll be starting slowly, offering sessions to returning clients and supervisees – it might be the new year before sessions become available for new work.

During this 9 months I’ll still be available for a couple of  work-related activities:

-I’ll be continuing to offer Body Psychotherapy Weekends with my colleague Judith Salling-Ash.

-I will be part of the team offering an Experiential Body Psychotherapy Weekend with fellow Radix trainees in the New Forest on the 6th to 8th September

-I’ll also be available for contact, queries and questions relating to the Embodied-Relational Therapy Training I’ll be offering with my colleague Allison Priestman in 2025…

Good wishes to you, Stephen

___________________________________________

Usually, we start with a brief chat on the phone – a chance for you to find out a little more, and ask any questions you have.

We then arrange a free initial session.

– This meeting, of up to an hour, gives you an opportunity to have an experience of the work, to dip your toe in the water, and to get a sense of whether it is right for you.

DSCN2483Sessions are usually weekly, lasting one hour, here in at my practice in Bovey Tracey, South Devon.

We can also negotiate working in different environments if appropriate, for example; working outdoors in the garden, or on Dartmoor.

The cost is £50 per session.
For some people this will seem very good value, and for some people this will not be affordable. If you are interested in working with me, but can’t afford my rates – get in touch and we’ll see what reduction is possible.

Please note my availability in 2024:
I’ll be available for therapy appointments up to January 2024, I’ll then be taking 9 months off, and will be available again from November 2024 onwards.
I will be continuing to offer the body psychotherapy weekends with Judith Salling-Ash during that 9 month period, 2024 dates not yet set –   2023 dates and details here: https://erthworks.co.uk/events/
