Emeline Hanson Ad. Dip. PC . (Psychotherapeutic Counsellor)
My aim when working with you as a client, is to to give you space and time to talk, and to empower and facilitate you to make the necessary changes to your life and your way of being, that will bring you peace and happiness. Because ultimately that's what we all want, isn't it? To be happy.
We can all be the creators of our own life experiences if we want to be, and as such, in the therapy room how much or little progress takes place is within your control. The pace and content of each therapy session will be to suit you, so you need never feel pressured.
I work from a transpersonal and person-centred perspective, which means I work with you, the whole person, not just your presenting issues, in a respectful, non-judgemental way. I utilise a combination of therapeutic approaches and therapeutic skills, which I tailor to to meet your individual needs, helping you to explore your troubling issues, and discover exactly what you need to do to begin to overcome them. Tools I might use include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), guided visualisation, breathing and relaxation exercises, Emotional Freedom Tapping (EFT), Sand Tray or Therapeutic art exercises, depending on your need and preference.

What to expect:
You will be welcomed into a comfortable therapy room where you are invited to relax and share your troubles with a friendly, non-judgemental counselling professional.
The initial session lasts for up to an hour and ongoing therapy sessions last for 50 minutes each. Sessions usually take place on a weekly or fortnightly basis, but can be ad hoc as well if that suits you better, until an agreed ending between therapist and client is reached.
Telephone counselling sessions also last 50 minutes and are arranged in advance, where we agree a suitable day and time for me to call you.
