Meet Emma

 

I'm a highly motivated, experienced and passionate Counsellor & Trainer with a Masters in Clinical Counselling and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education.

 

With a background in teaching and support roles, I have worked for over 15 years in schools, colleges, hostels for homeless people, youth services and in family support roles.  I trained as a counsellor because I believe that having good mental health is the key to a being able to have a fulfilled and meaningful life.

I have experience of working in an NHS, IAPT (Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies) counselling service.  I decided to work as a private counsellor so that I can give my clients the freedom to work through things in their own way, at their own pace.

I still love teaching and enjoy delivering training to a variety of different organisations.  I get so much satisfaction out of educating and supporting staff, managers, and parents to better manage their own mental health and to get to know themselves and their colleagues better.  

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  The BACP is the governing body for Counselling and Psychotherapy.  As a member I adhere to their ethical guidelines and I hold myself to the highest professional standards.  Click the link below to find out more about the BACP.
