Emma Leeper (Reg. MBACP)
I am a qualified and registered practitioner, working in Homerton, E9. I can provide counselling and psychotherapy to individuals on either a long term or short term basis.
I am an integrative psychotherapist. This means that I draw on a variety of different approaches and schools of thought to offer individual psychological support.
I believe in working collaboratively with a client, supporting you to decide what you feel you need, tailoring an individual therapeutic experience, unique for each person.
I work humanistically, valuing a person's lived experience, and their innate ability to move towards a sense of well-being.
The therapeutic relationship is an important part of my practice, I believe that psychological healing starts here, with someone feeling seen, heard and appreciated.
Providing a safe space and a welcoming, inclusive service is a cornerstone of my practice.
I have special interests in mindfulness and how this assists with compassion and acceptance, and also hypnotherapeutic techniques for relaxation.

I appreciate that deciding to access counselling or psychotherapy can be a daunting step. Do get in touch with either a text, email or voicemail and I'll reply within 48 hours.
If I'm taking on new clients a brief chat before hand that can sometimes help. I can offer a 10 minute telephone consultation free of charge.
If you'd like to book an initial session I'll send you a confirmation email with all the details. When we meet the session might be a bit different to others that follow - we'll have a discussion about what brings you to therapy, and what you might like to achieve through the process. I might talk about how we could work together to get you to where you want to be.
It's ok to take some time afterwards to have a think about whether we are a good fit. It's important to me that clients feel comfortable and ready to begin their therapeutic experience.
