About me

Due to the uncertainty regarding Coronavirus I am offering a discounted price for interactive counselling at £25 per session.  This is counselling via Skype, Telephone, Whatsapp etc, it is more convenient for those wishing to socially distance themselves, and has been proved as effective as face to face counselling. It still gives you a safe non judgemental space to allow you to explore any issues that you may be facing. 

A bit about me.

My names Emma and I am a fully qualified counsellor working from New Mills. I work with both adults and Young People. I provide an integrative approach to counselling which means I am trained in Person Centred, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and TA (Transactional Analysis), this means I can tailor the counselling sessions to your specific needs. I provide a safe, non judgemental space for you to explore any issues that you may be facing or just to off load to someone who wont judge.

I work with people through face to face and online sessions, ie through Skype or Face time.  The online sessions are sometimes more convenient for peoples hectic lives, a less stressful way to access counselling without having to go somewhere new and it has been proved just as effective, it can also work out cheaper per session as there are no overheads to take into consideration.

I have experience working with a variety issues, including depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationships, and I spent the last few years working with addiction and the behaviours associated with this.

Making a decision regarding which counsellor to go with can seem very daunting, knowing this I offer a free half hour telephone session so you can ask any questions about me and how I work. Feel free to contact me to arrange this, if I am unavailable then please leave me a message and I will reply as soon as I am able to.

I am fully insured and supervised, and work to the BACP guidelines.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a level 4 diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and Counselling Young People and Adolescents.

I worked with looked after children for ten years, and have a full CRB check.

For the past three years I worked firstly with ACORN recovery, providing group therapy sessions to addicts who were in recovery, looking at their addictive behaviours and how these can be related to a whole manner of life style choices, not just drugs and alcohol.

For the past year I have worked at HMP Manchester in the drug and alcohol service, working with people currently in active addiction, working with them to allow them to get to the point where they can look at achieving abstinence, alongside those in recovery, looking at relapse prevention and alternative ways to deal with their issues other than using.
