Emma Davey - Narcissistic Abuse Expert and Counsellor
My name is Emma Davey. I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a recovery coach for victims that have suffered from Narcissistic Abuse.
I offer online Counselling and Trauma Therapy using different methods and tools from:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- Narrative Therapy
- Gestalt Therapy
- Solution Focused Therapy
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
My belief is that no single approach is better than another and the therapies I use depend on the person I work with and the type of issues being experienced.
I have a wide range of experience in Addiction, Narcissistic Abuse, Domestic Violence, Trauma (past and present) and Relationship Issues. I have also worked extensively with clients that suffer from stress, PTSD, anxiety, depression, suicide and self-harm.
Life can be overwhelming at times where you feel alone and not believe you have anyone to talk to, friends and family are not always available or the best people to speak with to get unbiased support. My service is completely confidential, you can be yourself and express whatever you may be feeling. In order to address the problems properly you must be completely honest with yourself and say what is really causing the issues. I work from a non-judgemental and honest approach and acknowledge that nobody is the same which is why I tailor each session based on every individual client, there is no such thing as one therapy theory fits all.
What to Expect In Your First Session:
During the first session with each client I carry out an assessment by asking questions and taking notes and exploring what you wish to obtain from your counselling sessions and what your goals are. Together we will work on achieving those goals within each session we have, I will provide tools in which you will be able to continue to use in your everyday life.
Counselling is all about you. Life can be very hectic at times where you forget who is important and neglect your own feelings. Counselling gives you the safe space to be yourself and to be heard, you have nothing to lose but a lot to gain. Self-care is self-worth – because your life and future matters!

I run a members only Victims of Narcissistic Recovery Group via zoom. Each week members of the group meet and discuss the effects and recovery methods of Narcissist Abuse. It allows members to share their stories and have a safe environment where they feel heard and understood without judgement. You become part of the fellowship.
Talking to friends/family, that have not experienced this abuse, can be frustrating as others don’t understand why it’s so hard to let go. You’re suffering from an addiction and just like any other addiction such as drugs or alcohol (AOD), you need to focus on your recovery. “Love Addiction” affects the same part of the brain as AOD which is why leaving is so tough, because you start to get withdrawals when you don’t get your fix.
Talking is a huge part of recovery, not only to remind yourself of the trauma you went through but to know you were not to blame. Talking will help you recognise your triggers and develop healthy boundaries to protect yourself in the future.
This group supports you on your journey to recovery and becoming Narcissist free or learning coping strategies if you have no choice in having the Narcissist in your life. You are not on your own – we are all in this together.
