A Little Bit About Me
Hello and welcome to my site! I am Emma, a qualified Integrative Counsellor and trained Life Coach. My main goal in therapy is to provide a safe and supportive place for you to explore any issues that you may have. I have a passion for helping people cope with the stresses and strains everyday life throws at them. My counselling technique is a mixture of working with you to explore your issues and also, if you would like to, explore and build on the relationship you have with yourself in order for you to believe and understand your value and that you are worth feeling good about yourself and your life.
I am a down to earth person who is non-judgmental, open and honest and able to offer empathy and encouragement in order to help you. I do not offer advice in my sessions but what I can do is show you some techniques and tools that may help you feel better and live a more fulfilled life. If you would like to just speak to someone to get things off your chest, I am a great listener too. If you would like to know more, please contact me.
What is Integrative Counselling?
One of the big questions in life is "why do we do the things that we do?" Counselling and Psychology research shows us many ways to explain how and why we do the things that we do and these are called theories.
Integrative counselling is a form of counselling where the counsellor has been trained in multiple theories and draws on the knowledge and tools of these theories to tailor the counselling sessions to the individual client.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) and Person Centered.
