Hello and welcome. I’m Emily and I am an integrative 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 EMDR trauma therapy. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I hold an MSc in Counselling Psychology. I offer both individual and couples counselling.
Issues I have worked with include; depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, anger, suicidal thoughts and suicide attempts, relationship difficulties, workplace stress, and many others. I have extensive experience working on a one-to-one basis with people who have a diagnosis of dementia and can also offer individual support to their carers. In addition to this I have worked closely with survivors of sexual violence and domestic abuse. I have worked with couples experiencing difficulties in many aspects of their relationships, such as infidelity, communication break down and sexual issues. 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 (including disabled 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 both face to face and online 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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
