Emma Brooke Gilding - Online Integrative Counsellor & Life Coach - MBACP
At times we feel stuck or alone, we are affected by loss, anxiety, depression or something else which stops us from living fully. Maybe we notice repeating patterns that we don't know how to change. In these cases, working with an experienced professional through therapeutic coaching and counselling can be a wonderful tool to help us heal and access the inner resources we need to let go of the past and create a new future for ourselves.
By cultivating a safe, confidential space, without any judgement, but with the utmost respect and compassion for your experiences and journey, I can support you in exploring anything which is holding you back, and help you to create the awareness you need to make the right decisions for you going forward.
You are always in control of the process, and can use our time together to process your feelings without the need to censor yourself, as well as explore different options for how you'd like to move forward. Your intuition will develop and guide you towards what is best for you.
I bring my training and experience in integrative, holistic counselling, therapeutic coaching, mindfulness, meditation and yoga to give you the tools to choose from to decide which work best for you. You bring yourself - willingness, worries and anything else, and we work together, side by side, until you feel ready to go forward without me.
I have further training in Gestalt Therapy, and study and practice the principles of teachings like the Law of Attraction, A Course In Miracles, and Science of Mind. All this means that I have a very present and relational approach to our work - I care about how you feel now, how you relate to your environment and the people in it, how you want to feel in the future, and what will help you feel like you are living as the best version of yourself.
I work online, via secure video call (Zoom), in weekly 50 minute sessions, and also offer on-going instant message / video / audio note support for a separate monthly fee. If you would like to have an informal chat about how I might be able to help, please go to www.emmabrooke.as.me/consult to see my calendar and book in.
Training, qualifications & experience
My experience has taught me that it is often not about a specific tool or technique brought into the therapeutic relationship, but rather the genuine human connection between coach and client which can be of greatest benefit. To know that there is someone who isn't going to judge you, or anyone else, outside of your day to day life, who supports you and believes in you is something sadly not enough people have experienced. This external support goes a huge way towards assisting you to build your own strength and resilience and to help you heal whatever it is that has been stopping you reaching full happiness.

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.
