Emeline Hanson Ad. Dip. PC Acc. (Psychotherapeutic Counsellor)
07950 992 722 / 07950 992 722
I am a fully qualified Integrative Psychotherapist, experienced in working with individual adults, couples, teenagers and children in a variety of settings including schools.
I view each person as individual, with unique experiences and individual needs, and therefore understand that what works for one person may not necessarily work for another. With this knowledge in mind, I choose to incorporate a range of therapeutic theories and techniques into my own skills and experience to tailor the therapy to each individual client.
Counselling Models and theories used:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Therapeutic Art and Play
Emotional Freedom Tapping (EFT)
Additionally, if requested, I incorporate breathing and relaxation exercises, and guided visualisation where appropriate, to help improve clients’ state of mind and aid therapeutic progress.
I work with the whole person, not just the issues, in a non-judgemental way to give each client the respect and space you need to help you improve your life. My therapeutic support over the years has helped many individuals, to overcome issues that had been holding them back, by helping them to make positive changes in their daily lives. These positive changes enabled clients to become more settled and productive in life, in school, at work, at home and in their general social interactions.
Work with children and young people
Children usually find it difficult to identify their negative feelings or to articulately express themselves in words, and therefore negative emotions can build up and manifest in disruptive or reclusive behaviours. With this in mind, younger clients are offered therapy through art and creative play, to help them convey how they are feeling.
I use a range of toys and art materials, including a sand tray to use during their session, so that they may work through their issues and express themselves through creative play. It can also serve as a space for the child to fully be him/herself, away from the restrictions or expectations of their usual environment, which helps to build confidence and a sense of self. I generally use a person-centred approach alongside the art and creative play, to enable the child to go at his or her own pace.
Art/ creative therapy sessions are also available to adult clients on request.

What to expect
The initial session lasts for 1 an hour, where you can give me a better idea of your situation and what you would like to gain from counselling, and you can decide if you're happy for us to proceed in working together.
Ongoing therapy sessions last for 50 minutes each (45 for children) and usually take place on a weekly or fortnightly basis, until an agreed ending between therapist and client is reached.
Telephone counselling sessions also last 50 minutes and are arranged in advance, where we agree a suitable time for me to call you.
Sessions for your child at their school may also be arranged, if within an appropriate travelling distance.
