Emma – Children and Young People Counsellor/Psychotherapist
Are you a young person who is struggling to cope with difficult emotions such as anxiety or anger? Maybe you are struggling with your identity and feeling overwhelmed? Perhaps you are struggling to find a safe person that you can open up to? If you would like some help understanding the way you feel to make positive changes moving forward, then please contact me.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling Professionals and have extensive experience in supporting children, young people and their families.
Asking for help is especially difficult for children and young people who often find the challenges of life overwhelming and feel that nobody will understand how they feel, as often they do not understand how or why they feel this way themselves. This then can leave them feeling ‘stuck’ and unable to make positive changes in their lives.
I can offer a safe, caring, non-judgmental, professional and confidential space to talk about what is important to you. I use an integrative approach which means that I use a variety of techniques to help you work through whatever issues you may be experiencing.
I also know that talking is not for everyone which is why I am also able to offer a variety of creative approaches to help you explore your difficulties without needing to rely on talking therapies.
Examples of some difficulties you may be experiencing are:
- Self-harm or suicidal thoughts
- Exam stress and back to school anxiety
- Body image
What happens next?
If you feel that I may be able to help you, or someone you care about, then please send me an email, text or WhatsApp, or leave me an answer phone message and I will contact you to arrange an initial phone call to explore what issues you may be facing and whether counselling feels right for you.
Once we have agreed to work together, we can arrange a mutually convenient day and time to meet for ongoing sessions.

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.
