Hello, I am Emma. I work with individuals and couples.
Therapists are all different, it is important to find the right one for you. I work with a range of ages and issues, from anxiety to existential angst, depression to anger. I also support those with ADHD or believe they have many symptoms of ADHD and ADD.
I have experience with eating disorders, but I am not a replacement for a full team of staff which might, at times be more appropriate.
Much of my work is exploring how we think and relate to people and experiences. I use aspects of Mindfulness to help, for example recognising what is just a thought and what is fact.
I have worked in the NHS for a long period, as a dietitian, and now enjoy being self employed having autonomy to work with you in a way that suits you. I can provide as many sessions as you feel you need.
I work face to face and can also offer zoom online consultations if you prefer
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.
If you come as a couple we will explore the difficulties you are having, and identify what can be done to change the dynamics in your relationship.
I incorporate Buddhist ideas and mindfulness in to much of my work, I am not a Buddhist and welcome anyone from any faith.
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
- ADHD and ADD

- 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.

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.
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
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.
