About me


Hello, I am Emma and have worked to help people with their mental and physical health needs all my working career. I now work as a counsellor and psychotherapist, and am based between Halifax and Huddersfield, in Brighouse.
I support people as they try to get to grips with what makes them who they are, and what causes their depression, anxiety or anger.
I  work with you as you begin to experience how counselling can help you.
I specialise in anxiety, eating disorders, depression, mindfulness and self esteem issues.
I am trained to work with gamblers and those affected by gambling. This can be done through http://www.gamcare.org.uk/support-and-counselling
I offer Mindfulness workshops for 4-6 people, these can be an introduction to Mindfulness,  Mindful eating, or understanding stress and anxiety or bespoke for your friends, business or employees.

Key areas -

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Gambling addiction
  • The emotional fallout of physical and emotional abuse
  • Self esteem
  • Over and under eating
  • Feeling 'lost' and without purpose

You may feel your concerns don't have a label, I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space to explore conflicts and dilemmas you might have with life's choices.
I see people who struggle with issues relating to food, over or under eating, whether you are overweight, underweight or of normal weight I explore why food has become more than physiological nourishment.
I incorporate in my work issues of self esteem, social conformity and body image as well as powerful emotions and detrimental behaviours. I am an integrative counsellor and work in a way that will suit us both.

Counselling can be for anyone who wants space to think and reflect, it can provide a non-judgemental opportunity to work through problems and decisions. It can be used to understand depression, and anxiety and provide tools to help overcome these.

I am trained in the use of Mindfulness, which can be used for a variety of mental health issues.

My website will provide you with more information, or ring for a chat.
