Emma Mesher Dip.Couns, Individual BACP member
Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
If you feel ready to seek counselling, we will initially meet for a FREE 30 minute assessment to ensure you feel comfortable with me as your counsellor but also for me to get a little insight into you and your background.
Once this is completed and we both feel comfortable to proceed then we will meet consistently on a weekly basis for 50 minutes.
I am a qualified counsellor with an Integrative Counselling Diploma which means I studied the following different theories: Person Centred Counselling, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt.
Integrative Counselling means that I don’t work following one certain method. It’s more like having a tool box with lots of different tools in it and using the one that seems appropriate for a particular client in a particular session.
I am a firm believer in continuous professional development and therefore frequently attend short courses and workshops to learn new skills in counselling and improve my knowledge.
I believe that client and counsellor are equals as persons, working together to improve the client’s quality of life. I see it as my role as a counsellor to support clients in their quest for a better quality of life and walk beside them.
