Emma Foster FdSc, MBACP
I am an experienced individual and couples counsellor, working with both adults and young adults over the age of 16.
Many of us have times when things can feel out of control, or we feel particularly low or overwhelmed in our lives. During these times we sometimes struggle to find the right direction or a purpose.
Counselling can enable you to talk about difficult situations and feelings with a trained practitioner. It is a process that can help you to explore your thoughts and emotions and gain self-awareness. Knowing ourselves at a deeper level can enable us to make better decisions in life.
Good therapy is collaboration between the therapist and clients. It's not about being told what to do by the therapist, it's about working together to see the bigger picture of your life in order to put it back together in a way that is right for you.
