something troubling you? I am here to help. -Robbie Emberson qualified Therapeutic Counsellor in Essex.
Do you feel overwhelmed by your problems and troubles? as a qualified counsellor, I will work with you to examine the problem you are facing and find an individual approach to deal with it.
I run a integrative practise, this means I will tailor the therapy to your individual needs, this is a confidential service.
at my therapy room I make every attempt to create a welcoming and soothing atmosphere for my clients, my light and friendly room oversees a lovely garden which backs onto a quiet wooded area of Basildon.
if you decide after a initial free telephone assessment you feel you would like to commence therapy with me, we will agree on a initial block of sessions, this is completely negotiable and flexible. I am able to offer daytime and evenings appointments to you.
a special addition to my therapy work is animal assisted therapy, I use a variety of animals as therapeutic tools to help move therapy forward, this can be very helpful for children, or people that struggle with therapy.
I also provide services using animals to help with phobias such as arachnophobia.
I am also able to offer online counselling via skype.
