About me

Hello and welcome. I’m Emily and I am an integrative trauma based counsellor with a preference for a person-centred approach. This means that I draw on different techniques and approaches to counselling depending on your individual needs. I also offer couples counselling, EMDR trauma therapy and CBT. EMDR can be very helpful for PTSD, anxiety, phobias and other complex conditions, and clients often find that it is more helpful than traditional talking therapies. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I hold an MSc in Counselling Psychology. I also work as a supervisor for other counsellors. 

Issues I have worked with include; depression, anxiety, loss, anger, suicide, relationship difficulties, workplace stress, and many others. I have spent many years working closely with trauma, including survivors of sexual violence and domestic abuse.

I work with couples experiencing difficulties in many aspects of their relationships, such as infidelity, communication break down and sexual issues. I am passionate about and have extensive experience within the LGBTQ+ community and working with ethical non monogamy. I can also help couples to find an amicable end to a relationship.

Perhaps your difficulties are less specific and you’re just feeling a little lost, stuck in a rut, or struggling to make difficult decisions. If so, I can help you to get to a better place. We can work together to achieve your goals and make a difference to your life. No problem is too big or too small and I believe counselling is a great way of really getting to know yourself, which can be frightening at first but is ultimately very liberating.

What I Offer

I offer you a safe space, free of any judgement. I pride myself on my down to earth attitude and my honesty. My counselling room is comfortable and private, easy to access with free parking on site.

I am flexible in terms of availability and I am able to offer evening appointments. Please contact me for a free and confidential telephone consultation or more information. I am offering face to face, online and telephone sessions.

I understand how daunting and confusing it can feel trying to find a counsellor, but I will do my best to put your mind at rest. Seeking help is a big step in the right direction, so let's do this together.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Currently offering video calls and telephone sessions, please contact me to arrange the method that works for you.
