Psychological Therapy in Frome

We are fully available for psychological therapy online, an option that more and more people are choosing. However, if you would prefer therapy in person, then Dr. Joachim Ryan sees people at Frome Therapy Rooms. These rooms are conveniently located in the centre of Frome, and next to a car park.


Frome is well connected and accessible to the surrounding towns and villages or North Somerset and Wiltshire, as well as being 25 minutes from Bath.


Joe is an experienced consultant clinical psychologist and an EMDR-UK accredited EMDR practitioner, as well as being qualified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). These are the most evidenced forms of psychological therapy for mood disorders and trauma difficulties of all types.


Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful and scientifically proven treatment for trauma-related difficulties. It works on the principle that the brain has the ability to adapt and process disturbing memories if allowed to do so through bilateral stimulation. Bi-lateral stimulation can take the form of eye movements but also alternate tapping and other methods depending on the needs of the clients. Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), are the two most evidenced therapies for mood disorders and trauma, according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). As clinical psychologists, we can talk to you about what a tailored treatment programme for you would look like, as well as combine these treatment methods with others to suit your needs best. Our psychological therapy uses the experience of decades of providing NHS services to create bespoke and evidence-based treatment options.


We recognise that NHS waiting lists can be long. Then, the NHS offering might be restricted in terms of the number of sessions offered, the model of therapy they can provide, and the qualification level of the therapist. NHS Talking Therapies teams across the UK often have to rely on manualised treatments to manage the demand for their services. While we respect this and recognise the valuable service they provide to the public, we also wish to offer something that is more designed around the needs of the individual.


Mental health difficulties treated by Dr Joachim Ryan include:


  • Depression

  • Anxiety disorders

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Complex trauma

  • Complex emotional needs (often called ‘personality disorders’)

  • Bipolar Mood Disorder

  • Sleep disorders (parasomnias)


We are happy to discuss with you both your needs and the practicalities of treatment, whether online or here in Frome.
