Emma Dunn MBACP (Accredited) Registered Counselling & Psychotherapy
Hello, I am Emma and have worked helping people with their mental and physical health needs all of my professional career.
I have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2013, working from offices in both Brighouse and Huddersfield.
I support people as they try to get to grips with emotional distress of all types. I help my clients understand their depression, trauma, anxiety or anger and this in turn helps them to change it. There are different therapeutic techniques that I can use, and I base this on your preference, making use of how you understand your problems and their cause.
I specialise in anxiety, eating disorders, depression, mindfulness and self esteem issues.
I am trained to work with gamblers and those affected by gambling. I also work with survivors of abuse.
I have received training in dissociative disorders.
I offer Mindfulness workshops for 4-6 people, these can be an introduction to Mindfulness, Mindful eating, or understanding stress and anxiety or bespoke for your friends, business or employees.
I am trained to teach MBSR
Key areas -
- Anxiety and stress
- Panic attacks
- Gambling addiction
- The emotional fallout of physical and emotional abuse
- Self esteem
- Over and under eating
- Feeling 'lost' and without purpose
You may feel your concerns don't have a label, I offer a confidential, non-judgemental space to explore conflicts and dilemmas you might have with life's choices.
I see people who struggle with issues relating to food, over or under eating, whether you are overweight, underweight or of normal weight I explore why food has become more than physiological nourishment.
I incorporate in my work issues of self esteem, social conformity and body image as well as powerful emotions and detrimental behaviours. I am an integrative counsellor and work in a way that will suit us both.
Counselling can be for anyone who wants space to think and reflect, it can provide a non-judgemental opportunity to work through problems and decisions. It can be used to understand depression, and anxiety and provide tools to help overcome these.
I am trained in the use of Mindfulness, which can be used for a variety of mental health issues.
My website will provide you with more information, or ring for a chat.
