What is my approach?


Emma is an integrative therapist, meaning that she draws on different therapeutic approaches and techniques depending on what you bring to counselling to best suit your needs.

We all struggle in life at different times; however, sometimes situations can feel overwhelming and we might need to talk things through with someone who really hears us without judgment.

Emma offers a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space where you can explore whatever issue is troubling you or causing you distress or confusion.

Emma believes in a warm, collaborative approach where you work together in partnership to make sense of what is happening, supporting you to have a greater understanding of your circumstances or to find the solutions to move forward in your life.


How do I know whether you are the right counsellor for me?


Finding the right counsellor can feel overwhelming, so Emma offers a free 20 minute initial consultation by phone to discuss your therapy needs and to establish whether she is the right counsellor for you. Following this, if you would like to proceed with her, you can book a 50 minute counselling session either on Zoom, telephone or face to face.

Her availability is on Mondays between 8 a.m. and 1.30 p.m. at the WCHC.  Emma is also available at other times during the week, and please contact her directly in this respect.


What can I expect in the first session?


In your first session together, she will set some time aside for you to discuss and agree on the aims of the counselling, the number of sessions and the regularity of reviews.  You will also discuss limits of confidentiality and how long the sessions will last, what to do if you need to cancel and Emma’s availability outside sessions.

Emma will answer any queries that you may have and she will ask you to sign her counselling agreement to show that you understand its contents.
