Emma Thomas, PgDip Couns, MBACP
Centre For Counselling & Psychotherapy Education
2 Warwick Crescent
I offer both short term counselling for a specific issue you may wish to address, and longer term therapy, providing emotional support to help you through what may be a difficult period in your life.
I offer low cost counselling and therapy. The fee I currently charge is £50 per session, although concessions may be available depending on individual circumstance.
My work is integrative in approach, drawing on psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and transpersonal perspectives.
My practice is based at CCPE, in Little Venice, near Paddington, London.
Please call or email to set up an initial session where we can talk about what you wish to get out of counselling. If we are happy to continue, we will then set up a second session, and arrange to meet weekly.

In life, we often experience periods of struggle or confusion, where we may feel lost or despondent. I invite you to get in touch, whatever may be causing you distress.
Therapy offers a safe, supportive and confidential space to explore your feelings, frustrations, fears and concerns.
It is a non-judgemental space for emotional, psychological and spiritual enquiry.
Exploring your feelings in this way can help you gain insight and clarity around the issues troubling you and the challenges you may be facing.
I will work alongside you, offering compassion and support, as we together explore ways for you to gain a greater sense of understanding and clarity, a stronger sense of self, to help you move forward and flourish in your life and relationships.
As soulful creatures, we all come into the world with so much potential, yet so often in life, we may have lost touch with our unique inner resources. Therapy is a way of tapping back into our real selves, re-discovering who we are beneath and beyond our negative scripts, our personas, the adapted ways we learned to survive.
'Neurosis is the suffering of a soul which has not yet discovered its meaning'
