Hello, I'm Emma,
Firstly thank you for visiting my site. I am a kind, friendly, warm hearted person. I am qualified integrative counsellor, who specialises in Eating Disorders.
I work in a way that is supportive and enables us to work together to look at, explore and help resolve your struggles. By drawing across several therapeutic models when working with you ensures that I am able to meet your needs individually as everyone's experiences of life is unique.
Working in Chard and Frome, or remotely anywhere in the UK. I provide counselling for adults of all ages 16+ and can offer both short term and long term therapy.
I came to counselling through my own experiences in life and after working with adolescent/young adults as a supervisor. Therefore becoming a counsellor to help support others at times in their lives. When you need a place to be heard, understood and supported. A place in which you can come to, where we can look at areas of our lives that we may be struggling with. This may be thoughts, behaviours, feelings or situations that are causing us distress in our everyday lives. It may be past events or a general feeling of being lost or disconnected from ourselves.
Whatever you are experiencing I can offer you a warm, safe, confidential space, that is non-judgemental and we can work together to find new ways of coping or to come to a place of better understanding and clarity.
If you think that I may be able to help you, please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone me (07393 862417) to arrange an initial 30 minute appointment, where we can meet each other to talk about what you would like to get from counselling, and you can decide if I am the right Counsellor for you. If you are happy to continue, I will book a first session and we will arrange to meet weekly.

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.
