About me

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 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 Stockport and Southwold in Suffolk. I work with adults and children of secondary age (12 years and upwards).

About me

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 counsellor for the NHS, for Cruse Bereavement and have a private practice. Further details can be found on my website:

              www.naturallymecounselling.co.uk

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 an 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.

Covid-19

I am offering online counselling via Zoom or over the telephone as well as face to face sessions at my beautiful beach hut in Southwold, Suffolk. My counselling space meets social distancing requirements, and has scenic views. There are toilet facilities close by and there is private parking next to the beach hut.

Walking therapy

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Coming from a teaching background, I have experience of working with children and their families with special educational needs, such as autism, dyslexia, general learning difficulties. I can support parents or carers through some of these issues.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Languages offered

Can use BSL to Level 2 standard.
