Hello, I am Emily and welcome to my profile.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and registered member of BACP. I am a trained person-centred therapist which means that I will help you to explore your own issues, feelings, beliefs, behaviour and worldview, so you can become more self-aware and achieve greater independence. I also integrate elements of other psychological approaches to meet people's needs, as I believe a 'one-size-fits-all' approach is not for everyone. I offer counselling for a wide range of issues but also specialise in bereavement counselling, anxiety, stress, ecotherapy/walking therapy and counselling for people affected by cancer.
I offer face-to-face and online counselling. I also offer walking therapy outdoors. Please contact me by phone or email for details.
I am based in Norfolk and offer face-to-face sessions outdoors and in my counselling rooms in Honingham and in central Norwich. I work with adults and children of secondary age (12 years and upwards).
Caring, warm, accepting and motivating.
I offer my clients a confidential space to breathe, talk, and 'just be'. I am very committed to offering you genuine empathic understanding, warmth, acceptance and deep respect. I will help to empower you to grow and see things more clearly.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I currently work as a volunteer bereavement support worker for Cruse Bereavement and have a private practice. I also volunteered at Macmillan Cancer Care. Further details can be found on my website:
Talking therapy helps us to untangle our thoughts and make sense of things and it can take time. I can help you to heal from your past experiences and will support you to find your inner voice and freedom to be you. My business name, 'Naturally me' stems from that thought - I will support you to work out what you want and be your authentic self.
I work with a range of issues including ADHD, ASD, abuse, anxiety and panic attacks, social anxiety, bullying, health anxiety, depression, confidence issues, trauma, bereavement, loss, adjusting to and living with a health diagnosis such as cancer, life direction, family issues, relationship issues, school issues, work stress and special educational needs. We will work together to find a path which meets your needs on your journey. Most clients make great progress in between 6 and 12 sessions.
What happens next?
The first step is to arrange a free initial assessment to summarise some of the issues you wish to discuss in therapy and to get to know one another in a client-counsellor relationship. Please contact me via email or phone 07368 940271.
I am offering online counselling via Zoom or over the telephone as well as face to face sessions in Norwich.
I am offering walking therapy outdoors. Please enquire for further details.
Feel free to call or email me – I’m always happy to discuss individual circumstances and needs.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
