About me

Hi, I'm Emily, an Integrative Therapist and NCS accredited member.

Therapy can be a difficult process and will mean sitting with some uncomfortable feelings, but I will be alongside you in your journey offering a non-judgemental ear and the chance to explore those feelings with empathy. The majority of my work revolves around identity and exploring who you are as a person, whether that's within relationships, within your job or after losing someone close to you.

I like to work collaboratively with my clients, and so in the consultation we will explore what it is you're coming to counselling for, what you would like to get out of the sessions, and also explore any questions you may have around the process and how I work. I am currently working online via zoom or phone offering ongoing 50 minute sessions. 

I have worked with a range of clients with The Mix and Humankind charity, alongside over 8 years of working in pastoral support roles. I have continued my training since qualifying in topics such as Gender Diversity,  Trauma, CBT for anxiety, supporting the bereaved, amongst others.

If you would like to know more about how I can help you, please get in touch by phone, Whatsapp, email or voicemail. I welcome your questions.

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

I am flexible with my working hours where I can be. Let me know days & times you can do and I will look to see if they are possible.

Further information

I am an ethical non-monogamy and LGTBQ+ community inclusive therapist who has involvement in these communities. I believe that we are the experts of our own lives and identities, and as your therapist I am here to understand, explore, and accept who you are within our work.

As an integrative therapist I adapt my way of working to your preferences, where possible, in a collaborative way. We will talk about what it is you would like to get out of counselling and look at ways we can do this. 

My core way of working is offering a safe and non-judgemental space through person centred counselling and it's core conditions, which are to hold you with unconditional positive regard, empathy, and congruence. From here I layer on tools and techniques from other approaches such as gestalt ways of working (metaphors, 'here & now' work, somatic exploration), ways of working from MBCT/SFT/CBT (using mindfulness techniques to explore our ways of thinking, looking at how this can be different, and how this can then impact our behaviour/emotions), and CFT/ACT (looking at our internal narrative, how we can be more compassionate and accepting to ourselves).

Depending on what it is you're wanting to explore, how long we work together, and your preferences, will depend on the techniques used in our sessions.
