About me

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 specialise in-

Trauma (childhood, recent,abuse etc), confidence & relationship issues, Depression, anxiety and addiction.

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 session with view to carry on working together for as long as you need, this is completely negotiable and flexible.

I am able to offer daytime and evenings appointments to you, and my sessions are affordable for clients on low incomes.

please see my profile below for the kinds of problems I can help you with.

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 am also able to offer online counselling via skype.
