Ingrid Schultz – Frome Counselling Practice

Frome Counselling Practice - Ingrid Schultz

I am a BACP registered and accredited counsellor with more than 20 years of clinical experience.

Before becoming a counsellor I worked as a social worker in mental health. For over 12 years I was a GP counsellor in the NHS, as well as offering counselling in private practice.

Currently I am working in private practice as well as for a local counselling organisation. I am also a qualified supervisor.

From 2009-2013 I had a career break. Since returning to counselling I have found that the break has enhanced and deepened my clinical work.

I work with individuals and couples and my specialism is brief dynamic therapy.

I also work as an adult education tutor. I deliver workshops about mental well-being and mindfulness.

Pink flowers - About Ingrid Schultz

I adhere and I am strongly committed to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice (2016).

I believe in respecting the reality and individuality of each person, including their ability, their age, their beliefs, their cultural heritage, their gender and their sexual orientation.

I receive regular supervision from a senior colleague, I meet with other counsellors and I am committed to ongoing professional development.

Fees

I charge £44 for a 60 min session. I have never turned a client away due to lack of funds. Some lower fees may be available, if appropriate.

For couples I charge £60 for an initial  assessment session (90 mins) & £48 for follow-up sessions (60 mins) .

Ingrid Schultz – Where I work

My consulting room is on the Bath side of Frome. It is on the ground floor and has a separate entrance. There are a couple of separate steps to get to it, which may be difficult for clients, who use a wheelchair.
