Hello, my name is Emma. Thank you for finding my page. I would be honoured to hear from you to see if I can help you to explore your difficulties. You might be feeling quite overwhelmed by your feelings or unsure how you feel at all. Sometimes professional support is needed so that you can express yourself to someone who will not be overwhelmed, judgemental or shocked by what you have to say, meaning you can be 'you' when we work together. I hope my warm approach will put you at ease and make the whole process less daunting for you. I have experience with working within the NHS, privately and within domestic abuse charities.
The counsellor/client relationship is unique, respectful, and empowering. How I work is by using the 'Integrative' approach. That means that together we can draw upon a blend of different types of therapies including person-centred, CBT and mindfulness to work through your difficulties, enabling you to find your inner resources and make positive change.
Reaching out to talk to someone takes courage. So I would like to let you know that I am gentle, compassionate, non-judgmental and work in a confidential way. Importantly I offer new clients the opportunity to phone or email me to clarify or ask any questions you have before you decide if you would like to book a face to face counselling session.
