How can my service users access Expressive Writing?

I will work individually with your organisation to design an Expressive Writing group to suit your premises, service-users and availability.  This means that your service-users can attend the group in a safe, familiar environment, through an organisation that they trust.

How much does it cost?

A fixed block of Expressive Writing sessions (usually weekly for 8-12 weeks) costs £25 per hour – each session usually lasts 2 hours.

A long-term writing group costs £20 per hour, and is usually 1-2 hours per week.

If your organisation requires additional funding in order to support this service, I am always happy to provide information and case studies, and to assist with the required evaluation.
