Maureen Emmony Dip Couns & CBT MBACP Registered
Hello I'm Maureen; Thank you for taking time to read my profile; I offer a safe confidential place for you to explore your busy mind, to untangle past, present and future concerns. I will work alongside you, non-judgementally and empathically while you explore your concerns. I am committed and passionate about delivering an approach that empowers you and enables you to make informed decisions about your life. Therapy sessions are offered either Face to Face or via telephone.
I have many years of therapeutic experience, counselling clients with various presenting issues including Bereavement, Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Trauma (PTS), Relationship, Rape and historical Abuse, Work related issues, Self harm, Suicidal ideation and Sleep insomnia.
We can work together either short or long term, at your pace and on your agenda of what is important to you to get the most out of your counselling sessions. Your initial 20-minute telephone assessment is free, to enable us to discuss your situation/concerns and to ascertain if I am the right therapist for you before commitment to on going sessions.
Just a couple of evaluation reviews from clients I have worked with:
"Maureen was amazing. She listened to me and then helped me explore and unpack how I was feeling, how I dealt with issues and how I could approach these situations in a rational manner.
She gave me practical ways of dealing with my anxieties and depression. Maureen was very easy to talk to and gave me the time I needed to work out how I could move forward."
"She listened and guided my thoughts, helping me to reflect on events and understand how it had affected me and how I can move on from them. She offered effective strategies that I now use daily to feel relaxed and confident enough to acknowledge what has happened but strong enough to face the day without panic. She was very knowledgeable about different areas and could immediately tune in to what might help. Her approach was calming and professional."
"Were you satisfied with your counsellor?: She always made me feel like my thoughts and feelings were ok and nothing to be ashamed of. I never felt any sense of judgment. I never thought I would be able to accept my dad's diagnosis of a terminal illness but she helped me with that. She laughed with me and calmed me if I felt upset and I ended up really looking forward to our sessions and I was sorry when they stopped. I would like to name my counsellor as Maureen. She absolutely deserves all recognition for what she has done to help me. Battles that I have fought for 20 years are being won because of her and the help techniques she taught me. An amazing lady."
