Emma Micklewright - FdA Couns. BSc Hons. MBACP Reg.
Hello, my name is Emma.
I want to acknowledge this important step and any apprehension you may have in this moment. As a qualified counsellor, I have the training and experience to listen with empathy; both attentively and effectively. I can sit with you in your discomfort and all that may feel unknown and uncertain. I offer you an often much-needed, ‘sounding board’ and a safe place without expectation or judgment.
I welcome you initially, to a free, no-obligation fifteen minutes consultation to discuss any questions and to get a sense of how we may work together; whether you preference is phone, via video or face-to-face.
Email me here or phone or text 07767 172955.
I will respond to any messages within 24 hours.
Through my style of working, my hope is that you will experience an obvious depth of understanding from me as I sit alongside you. Our therapeutic relationship will help to inform and support our time together; allowing you to safely and gently look at conflicting and challenging parts of your life.
As you tell me your story, we will identify important life themes, recurrent and repetitive cycles and behavioural patterns. Through bringing these into the, 'here and now', we can nurture your deepening self-awareness; offering you an empowered sense of identity.
How I work / locations.
During these uncertain COVID times, I offer and I am competent in both phone and online video therapy.
I work from Eastleigh: located just off the M3 near J13; making it convenient to Eastleigh, Chandlers Ford, Winchester and Southampton.
I also work from Salisbury; with the office a short walk from the train station.
Both have visitor parking.
Training, qualifications & experience
Training, qualifications & experience.
My training is seated within the Humanistic approach to counselling. This recognises the importance of an individual’s potential and their ability to experience growth. Within this, I am trained in and guided by Transactional Analysis. T.A .may enable a more structured way of working and can be very useful to the client when understanding their own relationship rhythms and historic, sometimes outdated, behaviours.
I am guided by the strength and potential of the relationship between therapist and client. By working honestly and openly together, it is possible to achieve longed for change and soothe everyday tensions and worries.
I have counselled clients experiencing PTSD and complex PTSD, anxiety, depression, identity crisis, low self-esteem, relationship conflict and domestic violence.
I volunteer at two charitable organisations in Hampshire; a women’s service which provides counselling for vulnerable women in crisis and a charitable agency where I see clients with a number of presenting issues. I undergo regular, clinical supervision with a qualified supervisor.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapist (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. The framework may be accessed at www.bacp.co.uk.
I hold full Professional Liability insurance with Towergate Insurance and a current, enhanced DBS certificate.

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.
