About me

Hi, I’m Emily, a qualified counsellor and therapist with 10 years experience. I work online and use a ‘Person-Centred’ approach, which means sessions focus on what will help my clients, supporting them to find their own solutions and better understand themselves. I know how daunting it can be to ask for help, and how confusing and overwhelming it can be to then find the right help. If you have made it this far, then you have taken the first brave step towards changing your story.

I offer a warm, compassionate, and non-judgemental style of counselling; it is important to me that my clients feel safe, valued and understood.

As a therapist I have experience working with a huge range of life’s challenges, from depression and anxiety to substance abuse and eating disorders. So, whether you are looking for a space to unpick a new problem or for support to process the past, I am open and available to your story and experience. Whatever you bring to therapy is unlikely to shock me!

Over my years of practice, I have developed areas of specialist interest where I have gained in-depth knowledge and experience; working with women and AFAB who are impacted by reproductive health and Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD). For more information about how I work, or my specialisms please check out my website.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am passionate about working with people to help them improve their worlds. I have worked in supportive roles for over 20 years.  For the past 10 years, I have worked in inner city schools, supporting children, parents and staff in a range of ways: providing therapy, offering guidance, advocating for those in need, and liaising with social services.

Alongside this I have grown my own private practice, supporting a diverse client base. It is important to me that therapy be accessible to all and I strive to make my practice as inclusive as possible. I take time to learn about all the ways we can be in the world and, where possible, undertake additional training to support my practice.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
