Hello, I am Emma. Therapists are all different, have a read below to see whether I offer something that feels right for you.
I work face to face and can also offer zoom online consultations if you prefer.
I offer couples counselling. This supports you both, as you learn to relate to each other differently, by breaking cycles of communication and reactivity.
I work with anyone feeling life is not working out as they hoped. I will help explore thoughts, beliefs and expectations and using some Buddhist ideas offer a way to view these differently.
I have experience working with anxiety. I have an understanding of the biology of stress which you might find helpful, knowing your anxiety is natural, and shared by others.
I can incorporate Buddhist ideas and mindfulness in to much of my work, I am not a Buddhist and welcome anyone from any faith.
There are different therapeutic techniques that I use, and I base this on your preference, making use of how you understand your problems and their cause.
As well as anxiety, I specialise in eating disorders, depression, mindfulness and self esteem issues. I have additional training to help adult survivors of childhood 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
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. I do not think of mental health as an illness, I believe our choices and behaviours are a reflection of who we are, this might be because of our genes and because of our experiences of life. Counselling helps us look at this openly and without judgement, and to see if we can perhaps make different choices based on new experiences.
My website will provide you with more information, or ring for a chat.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
