The FROME HANDYMAN.
Due to the success of my Psychotherapy and Counselling practice www.individualpsychotherapy.co.uk
I now work part-time as the Frome Handyman, which limits me to small jobs and projects, and/or patient customers!

aka The Frome Handyman.
started my own business as "The Frome Handyman" in July 2008, working
in the Frome and BA11 area of Somerset. I am skilled in a variety of
trades including all forms of woodwork, tiling, stained glass, and some
aspects of stone masonry. I have specialist experience of work on
traditional buildings and the issues associated with them, such as damp
and timber treatment and insulation. Having successfully completed
parts of a Post Graduate Building Surveying course I am well equipped
to offer a comprehensive and professional handyman service. I provide
good value where several trades are combined. This saves employing and
organising a couple of tradesmen and also ensures all the liability
remains with one person.
offer free assessments and honest advice on any work you might be
considering. Ideal for those odd jobs and that DIY work you want
someone else to do. If I am unable to help or the job will be too large for
me I should be able to refer you to suitable sources of advice or
relevant tradesmen. I have built a good reputation over the years and
and have a number of regular customers.
I pride myself on the
longevity and quality of my work. I do believe the maxim that "a job
worth doing, is worth doing well". Often I have seen poorly executed
work having to be re-done with the owner of the property paying again
for the job to be done properly. Not only is this a waste of money but
a waste of resources. My intention is to offer good quality work at
reasonable prices so that you will engage me for future work and
recommend me to others.

My fees are £20 attendance (call-out fee) and £20 per hour. I have to
charge the attendance fee to cover me against small jobs that are
simply uneconomic (I need to earn a living). I do not charge for
"muppetry" - my mistakes, I make them good in my own time. You
get any materials I buy at the price I pay for them, i.e. you get my
discounts, as I prefer to be transparent in my costs. I do not offer
quotes due to the time it takes to prepare these, especially in
relation to the size of the jobs I undertake - however I do offer a
verbal estimate, explaining to you what would be involved in the work,
how long the work may take and the likely cost of materials. During the
work, I keep you informed of progress, whilst fully consulting you as
to your wishes.
You may have heard from others that I undertake certain works, however
due to the increasing size of my other work, as a psychotherapist, I
have had to reduce the range of work I undertake as the Frome Handyman.
