About me

It’s not always the things that have happened in your life but also those things that haven’t.  This might show up as not feeling good about yourself or connections in your life. There could also be things you want to reflect on and understand better.

As a qualified Integrative Counsellor, I can support you with perspective and working through what would be helpful.  I know how hard it can be to ask for help and I know the value of talking it out in a private and understanding space.

Reflections from people I have worked with:

"Therapy with Emma has transformed my life. She has been a lighthouse in the storm, and for the first time I am able to work with myself as I am and take control of my life." M, London

"I wanted to choose a therapist carefully having had mixed experiences in the past. I feel really lucky that I found Emma… her approach is very kind and non-judgemental but she’s also clearly very skilled and knowledgeable about different techniques and ways to approach complex situations. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a therapist - working with her over the past year has made an enormous difference to me."  R, London

"It's been such a valuable and important experience and I feel ready to face the next chapter in my life armed with a better understanding of and connection to myself." A, London

"If you are looking for a non-judgemental, thoughtful, intelligent and compassionate counsellor, then I would highly recommend Emma."  P, Jersey

"Emma’s warm and welcoming weekly sessions have been a great point of support over what have been some difficult times in the past few months. I've found our sessions really grounding and very comforting. She’s helped me in sorting through my thoughts and feelings and processing my emotions as well as helping me better understand what my boundaries are and how to communicate them. Most of all Emma has helped me develop a better outlook on how I treat and view myself."  L, New York

Member organisations

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.
