About me

I offer individual counselling.  If you are feeling tired and perhaps worn out  being with negative emotions, overwhelmed or unsure of how to move yourself to a place where things feel better. I can help you to find your way to an easier more comfortable way of being with yourself . I offer a non judgemental, empathetic, compassionate space, where I work alongside you to help you to safely explore your thoughts and emotions at your own pace.  I feel that counselling does not to be seen as a last resort but rather a way of finding and maintaining emotional and psychological balance which we all need to find our own individual way of coping with the impacts of life and the experiences it can often bring us.

I have my own comfortable, quiet and private therapy room with easy parking and a bus stop just a few paces away.  I am located a few miles from Canterbury city centre.

I offer sessions during the week that includes evenings and also I offer sessions on a Saturday morning.

You have come this far, the next step to email emma@mindfullypresent.co.uk or call 07826 644364 to talk about what you feel you need to get out of counselling and if you are happy we can arrange a second weekly or fortnightly session.

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.
