Emma Mason (MBACP)
My name is Emma Mason and I am an Integrative counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I am open, non-judgmental and can offer you a safe space and a listening ear to explore whatever issues you may be having within your life currently.
What does Integretive mean?
Being an Integrative counsellor means that I am trained in different theories of counselling and I am able to tailor each therapeutic process to the needs of the client. The theories that I am trained in are Person Centered, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Transactional Analysis (TA). I believe that the therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and client is most important and I strive to build and maintain this trusting and open therapeutic relationship with my clients.
Who is counselling for?
Well...it's for anyone and everyone who feels they have reached a point in their life that they just can't seem to get past no matter how hard they try. It's for someone who is stuck in a pattern of behaviour that maybe doesn’t benefit them anymore. It could be for someone to get something very important off their chest. It can be something very small or something very big, sometimes it can even be both. It could be axiety and/or depression related, you may be having issues with relationships or it could be anything else - Counselling is simply for anyone who needs or wants it, no matter the issue.
What can I offer you?
I can offer you a safe space to help you explore you thoughts, feelings, behaviours and almost anything in between. I am a helpful, caring, empathic person who is also down to Earth and understanding. Setting goals with you and being supportive while you work towards them. My aim is to help empower you, to help you discover the tools needed to cope and deal with life when it is hard for you. Also, I aim to hear you and provide the best counselling service I can to help you.
Contacting a counsellor can be scary, especially when you've never done it before. If you feel that you might benefit from counselling, please contact me in whichever way is comfortable for you, text, call or email and we can then arrange your free 10 minute phone consultation.
