Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Sessions?

At the initial assessment, Rowan can give you an estimate on this. CBT and EMDR are usually short term – around 10-18 sessions, Schema therapy is generally longer term – ideally around a year. If you are coming with a specific budget, you can discuss what can be achieved within that at the first session.

How Often & When Are The Sessions?

Rowan works during the day on a Monday and Tuesday. The therapy works best if sessions are weekly, so if you are someone whose work means you are frequently unavailable on these days, Rowan can help you find a therapist who works at the weekend or in the evenings. Occasionally it is possible to accommodate fortnightly sessions. The sessions are usually more spaced out at the end.

How Much Will It Cost?

Rowan’s fees are £75 per session. The sessions last for an hour. She is registered by most major health insurers so the cost of your therapy may be covered if you have private health cover.
