About me

As a highly experienced Adult Integrative Psychotherapist, Emily draws upon a wide-range of psychotherapeutic models including Psychoanalysis, Existentialism and Humanism. In addition to this, she has acquired a wealth of experience, knowledge and further professional training in evidence-based behavioural models including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Analytical Therapy, Mindfulness and Schema-Focused Therapy. Thus, Emily’s therapeutic approach incorporates a synthesis of approaches and theoretical backgrounds, that she ultimately blends to attend to the presenting needs of each unique individual she works with.

Fundamental to Emily’s approach is the emphasis she places upon the development of a safe, trustworthy, and authentic therapeutic relationship. She believes in the formation of a strong working alliance in order to foster personal growth and development, and one that enables both therapist and client to freely express themselves. Emily also strongly believes in the integration of humour within her approach, validating that the therapeutic process can be one not only where painful emotions are explored and overcome, but one where positive experiences and joy can be shared.

Emily believes in the importance of therapy being client-led, and so within the initial consultation time will be spent considering and formulating the presenting needs of the client. From this, various treatment options and interventions will be advised and explored openly, and the best route decided upon together. This may evolve over time, and will be reviewed regularly between client and therapist to ensure the most effective treatment and support is provided.
