About me

Hello and welcome to my profile, my name is Emma, I am a BACP accredited counsellor/therapist offering online counselling, CBT and supervision. 

I use approaches such as Person Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). These approaches can be combined or used as stand alone therapies.

I provide unique tailoring of support to suit your individual needs. I offer a friendly and professional service fostering feelings of hope and empowerment within a safe and transparent framework. There is extensive research to show that it is the quality of the counselling relationship that matters most in relation to the best outcomes and I hold this in mind whichever approaches are used.

I offer support for a range of concerns such as traumatic events, loss, bereavement, abuse, anxiety, identity, unresolved issues from childhood, relationships, separation, low mood, depression, experiencing emotions, life changes, fears and phobias, OCD. 

I support both adults and young people and I enjoy working with all ages. My training and experience with children and young people enhances my work with adults as I am trained in understanding how childhood development and earlier experiences (both negative or positive) can shape adulthood. 

How Might Therapy Help?

Therapy can provide a space to help you to consider what has happened to you or what is happening to you. It can help you to try to make better sense of your experiences, your thoughts and feelings about these and to consider possible ways forward. 

Suppressing feelings can impact negatively on emotional and physical health. Learning to share how you are feeling in a safe space with professional support can be a powerful way of increasing emotional well-being and can also lead to changes in ways of communicating outside of therapy. 

The therapeutic relationship can provide a space to think about your relationships and connections, how your history and experiences may contribute toward relationship patterns and ways of viewing the world around you. 

Therapy provides a safe space for you to feel heard and validated, enabling you to try to identify and connect with the feelings and instincts which are there to guide you, but can sometimes get lost. This can be a powerful tool toward healing, growth, and increased self awareness, a place to be yourself, to find yourself, or both. 

My Role?

I will be alongside you as your supporter and guide, though I will help you to find your own way rather than directing you. I may offer respectful challenge in the form of offering reflections, posing questions or making possible links. We might consider tools or strategies to support your progress. This could include education around how experiences or trauma can impact on the body and mind and using the connections of the therapeutic relationship to help promote healing and change.

I will remain closely led by what you bring so that we are focused on what is most important to you. Ultimately I work in ways which encourage our identifying together what is most helpful for you. We will work at a pace that suits you, building upon our relationship.

Initial Meeting?

Our first meeting will take up to 50 minutes, we can discuss your reasons for seeking support and desired outcomes. We will also discuss confidentiality and the practical elements of the therapeutic framework to provide a solid foundation for our work to begin from if you decide to proceed. The fee for an initial meeting is £55.00.


Any subsequent meetings after an initial appointment are 50 minutes for adults or 40 - 45 minutes for young people. Our work together can be short, medium or long-term depending on your needs and preferences. Appointments are charged at £55.00.


I am currently working through Zoom video link. You can access our meetings through the link which I forward you by email. You will need a private, comfortable space, a laptop or similar device, and a stable internet connection. 

Next Steps?

Please contact me with your desired day/time to arrange an initial appointment. I know that this can be anxiety provoking and I can usually offer short notice appointments if this is your preference.

You are welcome to contact me if you have any questions to help you to decide if you would like to arrange an initial meeting.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP accredited counsellor/therapist with many years experience in various therapeutic, senior and supervisory roles across the NHS, private sector and charities.


WSC | NVQ3/Diploma in Person Centred and Psychodynamic Counselling. 

University College London | Postgraduate Diploma in CYP IAPT Therapy CBT.

Kings College London | Post Graduate Certificate in CYP IAPT Supervision.

Theraplay Institute | Level One Theraplay and Marschak Interaction Method and Group Theraplay.

Great Yarmouth College | L3 Community Mental Health Care for those aged 18 – 65.


A Person Centred Counselling approach provides a safe place to feel heard, respected and understood. This approach places an emphasis on the importance of positive regard, acceptance and transparency within the counselling relationship. This approach is based on the belief that you are the expert on yourself and that given the conditions of counselling, self understanding, growth and change are enabled. 

Psychodynamic Counselling can involve making links between past experiences and the person you are today. Sometimes unresolved feelings from the past can unknowingly be acted out in the present causing frustration and confusion and impacting on the way that you feel about yourself or relate to others. This way of working can be useful in increasing awareness of these processes in order to help with healing from the past and to provide opportunities for growth and change in the present and future. 

CBT can be used to explore links between thoughts, feelings, behaviour and bodily responses. When unhelpful patterns of thinking or behaviour are identified they can be more easily addressed to impact positively on the other areas. CBT can involve consideration of beliefs about yourself, whether these are accurate, helpful or unhelpful, and how these beliefs may have been developed through earlier experiences. More specific CBT models can be useful for providing psycho education and in addressing phobias, various types of anxieties and OCD.  

Attachment Theory/Neuroscience can be useful in considering how early childhood and parenting have shaped you as a person, how your experiences may colour the way that you feel about yourself and patterns of relating to others in the present day. This theory provides us with a framework for understanding how the brain develops as a direct result of the environment, early experiences and care giving. This theory can be used to help us to consider any ongoing impact of loss and trauma. 

I attend regular CPD (continued professional development) to ensure that my skills and knowledge are up to date and to uphold BACP registration. 

CPD training topics have included attachment, trauma, neuroscience, managing risk, equality and diversity, safeguarding, sexual abuse, domestic violence, self-harm, LGBTQ+, anxiety, mindfulness, depression, gender identity, bereavement, loss, breathwork, neurodiversity, working online, Enhanced Evidence Based Supervisor training, mentoring. 

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.

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).
