Emily Willett MA Reg Mem MBACP
I am a qualified counselling psychotherapist, registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I recognise taking the step to talk about what is troubling you with someone can be daunting. I provide a confidential, warm, empathic and non-judgemental space where you can be heard and understood
I offer professional, high quality and confidential counselling to adults and young people in a safe environment, with the possibility of long term work, or short term, to work on specific issues.
Counselling is an opportunity to talk about whatever is troubling you with someone who is not involved in your personal life. We can explore your problems, often linking issues from the past to the present. This might help you understand patterns of behaviour and enable you to make changes.
I have experience of working with people who have struggled with issues such as:
- family or relationship issues
- low self esteem/self confidence
- trauma or abuse
- addiction, eating disorders or self-harm
My approach involves looking at significant relationships experienced in our early years; how they may now be impacting on our current lives and relationships and possibly contributing to present emotional difficulties. I aim to help you make sense of your feelings, however difficult, and gain greater self-awareness.

Rates £45 per session including introductory session.
Counselling psychotherapy is an emotional and financial commitment for both yourself and the therapist. The session is your time and will not be available to anyone else, therefore if you are unable to attend or miss appointments, fees are still chargeable.
We will meet for 50 minutes at the same time on the same day each week.
During your introductory session we will talk about what you would like to explore. There will be no pressure to continue with me if you decide my approach is not for you.
There is disabled access at The Courtyard Centre for Health and Wellbeing.
