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 private practice, volunteering for organisations like The Elm Foundation and Cruse Bereavement Care and experience working as a pharmacy dispenser, has helped me to understand the valuable need and positive, powerful impact counselling has on people’s lives.
Throughout my journey, I have gained knowledge and many important tools which help both myself and others to become more self-aware, self-accepting and understanding of how our minds work and what we need to create better-coping strategies and overall wellbeing. I practice mindfulness and meditations in my daily life and attend my own personal counselling, which has been invaluable to my own wellbeing and personal recovery.
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 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.
* To help those feeling overwhelmed and affected by their problems to feel more empowered.
Alongside my private practice I continue to work with survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse with The Elm Foundation, as a mindfulness practitioner and volunteer Counsellor. I volunteer for Cruse Bereavement care as a bereavement support worker and support a community group in Wirksworth, for those suffering with anxiety and depression.
