Emma Murray MBACP Counsellor & Psychotherapist
8-26 Bath Street
We all have times when life feels challenging. Feeling heard and supported can make a real difference.
Perhaps you’ve encountered difficult circumstances in your life. Perhaps you’re feeling anxious, depressed, angry or stuck, or struggling with the relationships in your life. Maybe you’ve been coping so far but things now feel overwhelming. Or maybe it’s been this way for a while and you really, really want it to change.
I aim to offer a safe, confidential space and a warm, trustworthy, respectful relationship in which you can explore your concerns.
In counselling terms, I’m an integrative therapist. This means I’m trained to work in a flexible way, drawing on a number of therapeutic approaches, to find the best way of working for you. Some clients may prefer a more practical approach, perhaps developing coping skills or considering solutions. Others may want to explore past experiences, or find creative techniques using drawing or objects helpful. We will work together to find what’s most helpful for you. Above all, I will always try to listen to you, and help you in clarifying your feelings, thoughts, goals and decisions.
I work out of my therapy room in Old Street. My room is part of a suite of therapy rooms and is in easy reach of Islington, Shoreditch, Moorgate and the City.
I offer face-to-face and telephone counselling, and can offer short-term (time limited) or open-ended therapy.
I believe we all have our unique ways of understanding and finding meaning in the world, and of coping with the difficulties we face. Exploring the ways we have been living, developing those that serve us, and discovering new ways, can lead to renewal, hope and change.
