A Little Bit About Me

Hello! I am Emma (She/They), a qualified Integrative Counsellor based in Greater Manchester. My main goal in therapy is to provide a safe and supportive place for you to explore any issues that you may have. I am passionate about 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, if you would like to, explore and build on your relationship with yourself 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, non-judgmental, honest person who can offer empathy and encouragement to help you. I do not offer advice in my sessions, but I can show you some techniques and tools to help you feel better and live a more fulfilled life. If you would like to speak to someone to get things off your chest, I am a great listener, too. If you would like to know more, please get in touch with 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 what we do; 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 Centred.
