My aims as a therapist.

Using an integrative approach enables me to adapt my work to suit the needs of my clients. The integration of skills across many modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-centred approach, Compassion Focused Therapy, Attachment Theory, and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy allows me to create a therapeutic relationship with my clients that is tailored to suit their needs.


* To help people feel more in control of their problems and their lives.


* To help individuals develop their wellbeing, both emotionally and physically.


* To help people heal and move on from trauma and grief.


* To help individuals navigate a better understanding and awareness of their problems and emotions.


* To help those feeling overwhelmed and affected by their problems to feel more empowered.

My name is Emma, I have a passion for counselling, mindfulness, and helping others achieve empowerment, growth, and wellbeing. My own personal journey, working within my own private practice, working for the Derbyshire Federation for Mental Health and volunteering for organisations such as The Elm Foundation and Cruse Bereavement Care all help me to understand the valuable need and positive, powerful impact counselling has on people’s lives and wellbeing.


Throughout my journey, I have gained knowledge and many important tools that help both myself and others to become more self-aware, self-accepting and understanding of how our minds work and therefore what we need to create better-coping strategies to regulate our emotions have healthier and effective relationships with ourselves and others and ultimately improve our overall wellbeing.
