Emma Marshall Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
I am an experienced BACP Accredited Person Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist working with adults and young people aged 13+.
My aim as a counsellor is to provide a safe space for people to talk openly about their situation or issues troubling them, free from the fear of judgement or criticism whilst fully hearing and understanding what is being said. I believe in building a collaborative, therapeutic relationship built on mutual trust which has been found to be effective in helping people find their own answers and the courage to take the next steps to a more fulfilling future. Therapy may be long or short term, whichever works best for the individual.
