About me

Hello I am Emily, a full-time qualified Counsellor, and avid advocate of emotional and psychological wellbeing. My approach to my sessions is a relaxed and caring style, which in turn aims to support you, the client, in understanding your thoughts and feelings. I work with a series of issues including anxiety, bullying, bereavement, confidence, depression, self-esteem and relationship difficulties.

Hopefully helping you to develop a set of tools to enhance your quality of life and self-worth, allowing you to deal with future events,and giving you better insight.

How can counselling help you?

My core approach to therapy is person-centred. This style of counselling is relaxed and puts you, the client, at the heart of the process and lets you set your own speed. This allows you to feel more at ease by setting it at a pace you are comfortable with. The therapeutic relationship is based on confidentiality and mutual respect in the sessions. I will provide you with a warm, welcoming and non-judgmental space to explore difficult beliefs that may, at times, be extremely painful.

The emphasis of my work is to provide a safe space, allowing you to talk about all issues, be they historical or current, which may be affecting the way in which you carry out your everyday lives. This may cause stress, anxiety and fixed patterns of thought. Having counselling can enable you to make small changes and for these changes to build into positive changes, allowing for progression.

To make the first step contact myself via email, phone or text on 07880 613282. We can then set up an initial session, where we can discuss what you would like to get from counselling. If after the initial appointment you wish to continue we can book further appointments. Working together at a pace/time that will work for yourself.

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.
