About me

Hello, I am a qualified integrative counsellor and 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 are unique.
Each appointment with me is a confidential and non-judgmental space for you to be heard, listened to and valued.
I work with people of all ages from 18 years old and have helped people with a wide range of issues including anxiety, bereavement, postnatal depression, trauma, panic attacks, low self esteem, relationship and family issues, trauma, sexual abuse, stress and job related stress and self harm, often feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope, or experiencing unwelcome feelings and behaviours . I truly believe in the empowerment of people and in doing so believe that you are and can be the expert within your own life and in seeking what you want.
Taking that first step into finding a counsellor can be overwhelming and may be a daunting experience, so it is important that you feel comfortable with and able to trust your therapist.

Emma is a very gentle, very kind and an amazing listener I feel like she understands me when I am talking about my issues and concerns, very happy with her and I look forward to see every session.

She is everything beautiful in this world and I’m incredibly blessed to have her as my therapist. I would not be where I am today without her and I would like to think that the universe brought us together. Thank you for everything Emma

Emma has a very calm, caring presence. She has encouraged me to go at my own pace and listen to my own guidance, and has also checked in with me during the week following some tough sessions.
