MA, BA (Hons), UKCP Reg, ADEP
Emma is a UKCP accredited existential psychotherapist and member of the Society for Existential Analysis.
She is in private practice and has considerable experience working in the charity sector with a broad range of issues including bereavement, loss, isolation, low self esteem, depression, paranoia, acute anxiety, relationship difficulties, identity issues, trauma and abuse. Emma believes that difficulties in living, manifest in a wide variety of ways and feels passionately that therapy can facilitate a unique experience, where these difficulties can be safely explored, and thoughts and feelings which are often difficult to bear alone, can be given time and space to unfold.
Alongside practicing from an existential-phenomenological perspective, Emma draws on the psychodynamic approach which adds a richness and depth to the work. Working with individual adults, she is able to offer open-ended, long term therapy or time-limited therapy.
Emma combines warmth with challenge and strives to create a trusting therapeutic relationship where open dialogue feels possible and where, through collaboration, individuals feel empowered to navigate change, so that they can live more fully.
Emma is a recognised provider with Aviva and WPA.
