Hi my name is Emma. Finding a counsellor who you can connect with may feel like a daunting process, this is perfectly normal and I hope to help you feel at ease as you enter counselling sessions. Our first session together will be a time shared to establish your needs and expectations of the counselling process, forming trust, respect and building a professional relationship in a sensitive manner.
As your counsellor I provide a confidential, safe, non-judgemental space to feel heard and priorities your needs. I work as an integrative counsellor, using skills drawn from many theoretical approaches to suit the individual client. I understand the importance of 'being seen' & 'being heard'. Together we can gain an insight into the cause of what is troubling you & find an appropriate way to overcome them.
Life is unpredictable and many of us cope in a range of different ways. It is easy to suddenly be caught by issues that interfere, unbalancing us to a point that we struggle to cope as we did once before. This may lead you to not understanding why life’s challenges have become hard to overcome. I would offer to support and guide you from feeling ‘stuck’ to ‘unstuck’ by clearing a path through exploration and working on personal development, finding a new perspective to help lead you to a happier and healthier life.
We have the capacity to change and grow when willing to do the work.
You do not have to do this alone. Through an increase in your own self-awareness, by searching for a counsellor, you have already taken the first step to making a positive change. Sometimes we just need a little help to do so.
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing what work awaits us.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
