Emma Dalgleish LLB Dip (Couns) Dip (Play) Dip (Sup) Cert (Hyp) MBACP
Brilliant Green Therapy is my therapy practice in South Wales and takes its name and inspiration from the brilliant green dragonfly. The dragonfly is a powerful and timeless symbol of transformation, a time of awakening, change and self-realisation which I liken to the process of therapy. I have gained significant experience by working with clients to uncover and heal old wounds, to manage the uncertainty of the present situation through developing coping and resiliency skills and to envision and embrace a vision of the future.
'The traffic in the distance hums of work and toil,
The whistle of the bird finding worms in the soil,
And then there's you,
And then there's you.
Some people walk in the cracks, some people slip through,
Where did you stand when you had the best view?
So take a moment now and settle in the seat,
And let's review your life and your moment of defeat.
You can tell your story and show me how to see,
What stops you reaching your goals and dreams and how you learned to be?
And I will slowly guide you, back to feeling good,
And praise and encourage you and show you that you could,
Be the person you were years ago and maybe something more,
Because my job is to listen and simply help unlock that door.'
From 'Lifescripts' by John Mill

I have provided training as an employee and private practitioner since 2002. Training to date has included working with grief and loss, self harm, trauma and PTSD, legal issues in counselling including pre trial therapy and working with sandtray.
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
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).
