About me

'I need therapy' is a thought that has crossed your mind... that's why you're searching these listings for counsellors and psychotherapists near me in London; or who work online.

So, I'm Emma, one of the lead therapists at I Need Therapy (www.ineedtherapy.co.uk). [Feel free to follow me on Instagram for mental well-being content: @therapybutton ]

I am currently working exclusively online - via Zoom and other encrypted platforms. 

I offer Counselling / Psychotherapy & Life Coaching to individuals of all genders, cultures, faiths, and sexual orientations.

I am based both in Brixton SW9 and Peckham SE15, South East London. However by working exclusively online, I'm able to work with you wherever you are located in the UK, Europe or rest of the world (time differences allowing). Working online also means YOU have flexibility to have your sessions at home, between meetings at work, in your car, while you're out on a walk.... anywhere! As long as you have the space to speak confidentially, you don't have to 'commute' to your weekly sessions with me.

I believe that life is full of daily events or 'traumas' that cause unhappiness, depression, low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, distress and panic attacks. There doesn't have to have been a massive 'trauma' event that has happened to you. You might just be feeling sad, upset, stressed, lonely or anxious. There are many experiences that life may present you with that you need to talk about. You might want to explore specific experiences or maybe you’re not quite sure how an event may have impacted your life and the people around you. You may just want to talk about how you feel. What you think. How you act. That's all fine. I have the expertise, time and space to work with you! I specialise in trauma - all the traumas (big & small) that life presents you with, which you may be struggling to get through. Just give me a call.

You might be having relationship or family issues? Feeling low confidence in yourself or your body? Problems in relationships with your friends? Or perhaps feel there's something missing because you don't have these relationships at all. We can talk about all aspects of relationships and how you feel about them.

I have also specifically worked with people who have experienced rape; childhood sexual, physical, or emotional abuse; and domestic violence; as well as working with women and men who have needed additional support after a baby was not delivered to term (post-miscarriage or post-abortion). So if any of these are affecting you, please also feel free to call and explore how I might help.

The space I provide for us to work together while exploring your experiences, thoughts and feelings will always be confidential, understanding, compassionate and empathic. I'm also very human... so we might share a giggle or two sometimes too (where appropriate, of course)! If therapy with me is something that you feel you would like to try, then please do contact me to discuss how I may help.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • I'm a qualified Counsellor / Psychotherapist; and an Accredited Professional {PNCPS(Acc.)} Member of the National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS; formally known as NCS). I appear on their Register of therapists and work according to their Code of Ethics.
  • I have undertaken specialist training and continuous professional development to work with people suffering from the effects of trauma and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). I was trained by Babette Rothschild (The Body Remembers); and use her Somatic Trauma Therapy tools, where appropriate. I now work with Babette regularly, facilitating the training of other therapists around the world, to work safely with trauma. I also attend specialist clinical supervision with Babette.
  • I am also trained in the use of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) - commonly known as 'Tapping'; and use the techniques while working with clients, as and when appropriate.; or if specifically requested as a stand alone therapy.
  • I volunteered for a number of years, both while training and post-qualification, with organisations who worked with women and young girls who have experienced rape, childhood sexual, physical or emotional abuse, and domestic violence. I continue to work with these issues in my private practice.
  • I also work with women and men who have needed additional support when a baby has not been delivered to term (post-miscarriage or post-abortion); and with people who are specifically carers (supporting a person who has a specific physical or mental health need) and struggling with the burden of this role.
  • My experience spans all the common emotional and mental wellness challenges you could encounter... feelings of sadness, depression, despair, stress, fear, anger, anxiety, abandonment, loneliness, rejection, family issues, trauma and confusion. This list is not exhaustive, as I've encountered so many feelings and experiences while working with people that would be too many to list.
  • I am also a qualified Life Coach - Accredited on the NCPS Register; and provide specific Life Coaching sessions; which are separate from Counselling. You can book those with me as well (see fees).

Other areas of counselling I deal with

There are just too many specific areas of counselling I cover to list. It's important for you to recognise that whatever mental health challenges or problems you are dealing with... they don't have to fit in a box or have a specific name.

LIFE is what we all struggle with at times. It's messy. It's varied. And I don't think any one person fits into any kind of box or experiences the same difficulties in the same way.

If you're having difficulties and need to talk. Then let's do this! Send me an email or give me a call; and let's start to work out how you can move forward and feel better by having some therapy.

I practice an integrative approach to therapy. This means several distinct models of counselling and psychotherapy are used together. I use my expertise to choose the model that may suit your needs; and I also adapt as the therapy progresses so that we can explore a range of approaches for the best possible outcome. But don't worry... models and approaches mean nothing to most people. I'll just use my knowledge, expertise and experience to work with you.

[By the way, in case you are wondering, 'counselling' and 'psychotherapy' are essentially the same thing! People just interchange the terms, depending on their training (provider, member organisation or practice) and preference. With me, you get the same expertise... whatever you choose to call it!]
