Emma Harrison - MBACP (Accred), Counsellor And Supervisor
Being an Integrative counsellor, I use different counselling therapies to suit the needs of each client. I spend two days a week in a GP surgery where I work with a number of conditions including patients diagnosed with depression, anxiety and phobia issues. I also work privately from home, in a peaceful country surrounding which my clients find very relaxing. They find it gives them the opportunity to reflect on feelings and experiences as I gently challenge and encourage them to open up and help find their full potential.
I have a CPCAB level 5 diploma in CBT. It is effective at tackling low self-esteem and negative beliefs which can lead to self-defeating behaviours. CBT is a therapy which is recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) as it's the treatment of choice for depression and anxiety.
I offer short term counselling and longer term therapy, where I provide a safe place to help my clients explore what is troubling them, offering a non-judgemental attitude. My aim is to support, enable and empower people to make decisions which are right for THEM. I do not assume or diagnose.
I understand that counselling may seem daunting for some, so I commend you for taking that step towards a talking therapy where you will not be alone.

A bit about me.......
I became interested in counselling after I experienced depression and anxiety in my early twenties. This has helped me understand a lot of issues which others face. I gained a lot of personal growth during my counselling training and through my own personal therapy. I enjoy using my own awareness and training to help others.
