Emily McCoy, Dip HE, MBACP
My name is Emily McCoy. I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor, offering effective therapy for adults and young people in a private, professional and confidential setting in central Fleet.
We can all face concerns and difficulties in our lives that affect us, our relationships and our work. We can be left feeling unable to cope, stuck, distressed or numb.
Counselling can make a real difference to how we think and feel about things and can help us to make the changes we want, for a happier life. It can also help us to accept things which are outside our control. People who come to counselling often find that it helps them feel more confident, more able to understand and accept themselves and better able to navigate life’s challenges.
I have experience working with adults and young people covering a wide range of issues including anxiety, anger, depression, self harm, eating disorders, low self-esteem, relationship issues, work problems, procrastination, family problems, stress, loss and bereavement.
Contacting a counsellor can feel daunting. The first step is to make contact and to have an informal conversation about how things are for you and what you hope for from counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience

Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Skills
Certificate in Gestalt Counselling

Working with Body in Therapy
In addition to my private practice I work within a sixth form college. I have previously counselled adults receiving support through local council services and children and young people at a boarding school.
As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My approach to training is that I am always learning, either formally (by regularly going on courses) or informally from my clients and peers. It’s important to me that I continue to learn and grow as a professional counsellor in order to provide the most effective support possible.
I receive regular supervision for work from a qualified counselling supervisor which ensures I am working to best meet the needs of my clients. I also hold professional insurance and a full CRB clearance.
You are in safe hands.
