About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I'm Emily - a modern, down-to-earth, integrative psychotherapist, based in London and online. I specialise in working with millennials and members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Sometimes I work within quite specific areas, including anxiety, burnout, relationships, self-esteem, self-criticism, perfectionism, communication, identity, lack of direction, purpose or meaning, and LGBTQ+ issues. At other times, people come to see me with a general sense of just wanting to feel more comfortable within themselves and their life - not because something in particular is 'wrong', but because they want things to feel more 'right'. Whatever it is that you want to explore in therapy, I will listen to you.
How I work
Working as an integrative therapist means that I incorporate ideas taken from many different places, so I offer a flexible and adaptable therapeutic approach. My background in studying philosophy, languages and literature heavily influences my work, as do film and TV, music, podcasts and video games. I find that art and culture provide a window into better understanding our own experience, and a language and context with which to express it.
I view therapy as an opportunity to see ourselves, our relationships and our patterns of thinking, feeling and communicating more clearly. When we can better understand these aspects of our lives, we become much more able to make meaningful change happen within them. And profound change really is possible: with more awareness of who we are, comes more freedom to live a life that actually fits us well.
I have been working in my private practice since December 2018. My client base is almost entirely made up of people identifying within the Gen Y, Gen Z and/or LGBTQ+ communities.
Prior to starting my private practice, I saw clients at agencies dedicated to therapy for loss, and stress, depression and anxiety.
In January 2020, I spoke at a BACP conference on the subject of 'Working with Millennials'.
I'm a Registered Member of the BACP and I work within their Ethical Framework.
My first session
If you feel that I may be a good fit for you, or if you have any questions you'd like to ask me to help you determine this, you're very welcome to get in touch. The best way to contact me is via email, and I will respond to you by the end of the next working day.
When getting in touch, there is nothing particular that you need to tell me about you - you can say whatever you feel comfortable saying. It would be helpful if you could let me know what your availability for sessions with me would be, so that I can see whether I am able to offer you an initial session at a suitable time and date.
An initial session is a chance for us to speak a little about what's going on for you at the moment; to explore any questions you have about therapy; and to get a gauge on whether we might be a good fit with what you're looking for. I offer a reduced fee of £55 for this appointment.
