About me

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 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 appointments 7 days a week, including unsociable hours such as early mornings and late evenings. Please contact me for a free and confidential consultation or more information.

I understand how daunting and confusing it can feel trying to find a counsellor, but during our consultation I will help to put your mind at rest and give you an idea of what to expect from a session with me. Seeking help is a big step in the right direction, so let's do this together.
