Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some the questions and answers that I am often asked, but if these frequently asked questions don’t answer your query please get in touch – I am always happy to answer your questions in person.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?
It is one thing to accept that you need to get help but it is another to actually try to find it. Emrys offers a free, no-obligation, 15 minute initial telephone consultation.

Call (44) 0792 3447 870, email info@blueperson.com or use the CONTACT FORM.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
I prefer to treat clients with fewer but longer sessions of two to three hours. This has proven very effective over the decades. It’s more cost-effective for you because it’s less hassle with your work schedules, childcare arrangements, travel, etc.., and it allows me to get to the root of the problem, often in just one session, and more importantly to get straight to work with the solution.

The aim is to have you leaving the clinic in a much better head-space than you arrived in.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Therapy session fees are fixed at £99 per session not per hour! The preliminary session will be around three hour’s duration, and subsequent ones if needed at around two hours.
WHAT ABOUT PHYSICAL PAIN?
There are many types of chronic/persistent or redundant pain issues that psychotherapy can help with: you may be surprised!

HOWEVER, I WILL ONLY TREAT CLIENTS WHO HAVE HAD THEIR PAIN/ CONDITION PROPERLY INVESTIGATED BY A MEDICAL DOCTOR or SUITABLY QUALIFIED CLINICIAN, OR WHO HAVE BEEN REFERRED TO ME DIRECTLY BY THEIR DOCTOR.

Ideally you will be somebody whose pain-relieving drugs no longer work, or whose doctor can find no physical cause for the pain, or who has Fibro/ME or similar conditions, and so on.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO STRESS THAT I AM NOT CLAIMING TO CURE THE AILMENT IN ANY WAY, but aim to reduce or remove the associated pain. Please call me to discuss whether your condition is likely to respond to treatment and how I can help you.
IS YOUR THERAPY DIFFERENT FROM NHS SESSIONS?
Yes, very different!
I have the freedom to use the most up-to-date scientifically-validated techniques from across the globe right alongside ancient, time-proven methods such as mindfulness. This is a clear advantage I hold over NHS therapists who are limited to a small number of modalities such as CBT.

And my longer sessions mean I have the time to actually listen to you instead of watching the clock. Another advantage is that by coming to my private clinic your appointment will be scheduled around a time that suits you. Moreover, you won’t have to wait three months or more just for an assessment!
WHAT HAPPENS IN A THERAPY SESSION?
You will find yourself in a totally non-judgemental space where you will be treated with dignity and respect.

My aim is to get you relaxed ~ Get to the bottom of the issues ~ Then apply solutions straight away.

The process is two-way, and, depending on the problem, you may be asked to do some ‘homework’. Other treatments e.g. phobia removal or post- trauma recovery are done directly by me. I typically use the powerful process known as the rewind technique for these because it is non-invasive, safe, and proven through rigorous scientific studies to be very effective.
WILL I HAVE TO WAIT LONG FOR AN APPOINTMENT?
I aim to see people and start treatment within two weeks of first contact if not sooner!
WHERE IS YOUR CLINIC?
Therapy sessions are held in our quiet, purpose-built consulting rooms at The Solstice Wellbeing Centre in Bradfield St George, near Bury St Edmunds, overlooking unspoilt countryside with a free, spacious, off-road car park.
IT'S NOT EASY FOR ME TO TRAVEL, CAN I STILL HAVE THERAPY?
I offer a Skype service to clients who live too far away to travel, however a preliminary session in person is usually required.
