Emma Flax, MA. Psychotherapy and Counselling. UKCP accredited.
59 Wostenholm Road
Who am I and what do I offer?
I am an experienced UKCP accredited and registered gestalt psychotherapist, with an MA in Gestalt Therapy. I work with individuals, couples and groups.
I am based in Nether Edge in Sheffield, S7, and I offer both short-term and long-term psychotherapy and counselling.
Who do I work with?
In my private practice I offer therapy for a wide range of issues, and have worked with adult individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds. I have experience of working with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bereavement, relationship problems, issues around parenting, post natal depression, sexual and physical abuse, bullying, low self-esteem, cultural related issues, career problems, family dynamics, sexuality and eating disorders.
I am an approved provider with the WPA Health Insurance scheme and the Vitality Health Insurance scheme.
Working with Groups:
Alongside my work with individuals and couples, I also work with groups, often co-facilitating with my colleague, Faisal Mahmood. Groups are usually based in either Sheffield, Birmingham or London. Past groups have included Personal Development weekends, 10 week Personal Development groups, and 'Introduction to Gestalt' workshops aimed at practicing counsellors trained in other modalities. For more information on working with me in a group setting, please go to www.gestaltgroups.co.uk.
My practice is based on Wostenholm Road, S7. There is free on street parking on Wostenholm and surrounding roads. There is also a bus stop almost directly outside the building (number 3 bus route).
