About me

As a highly experienced Integrative Psychotherapist and Cognitive Behaviour Therapist, Emily has vast experience, knowledge and training in a wide range of therapies, which enables her to provide you with a bespoke therapeutic service that will effectively meet your individual needs, goals and preferences.

The therapies Emily offers include:

  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT)
  • Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT)
  • Schema-Focused Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

Therapy Approach

Fundamental to Emily’s approach is the emphasis she places upon the development of a safe, trustworthy, and authentic therapeutic relationship. She believes this nurtures personal growth and development, which will enable you and Emily to work congruently towards your agreed goals. Emily also strongly believes in the integration of humour within her approach, validating that the therapeutic process can also be fun!

Emily believes in the importance of therapy being client-led. Subsequently, within the initial consultation time will be spent understanding your difficulties, needs and wants. From this, various treatment options and interventions can be discussed, advised and explored collaboratively, and the best route decided upon together. This can evolve over time, and will be reviewed regularly to ensure you receive the most effective treatment and support that fits with your current and changing circumstances.
