About me and my therapy practiceHello, my name's Emma. I am an experienced, fully qualified, BACP registered counsellor working in private practice in Aberystwyth.
Professional training and experience:
Originally trained in psychodynamic counselling, with an emphasis on unconscious processes and early childhood experiences, I have become more integrative over time. I use a combination of approaches, including solution focussed techniques, Psychodynamic therapy, Gestalt therapy, person centred counselling, coaching and CBT techniques, tailor made to what works for you.
I am friendly and relatable, believing that the relationship between therapist and client is fundamental to healing and positive change. I work collaboratively, offering emotional support and helping you gain more control of your life. I will not judge you or tell you what to do. Instead I will listen, reflect back and ask questions, helping you to achieve greater clarity, understanding and empowering you to overcome the difficulties you are facing.
Areas of interest:
Experienced in working with a wide range of emotional problems, I am particularly interested in issues surrounding family and relationships, sexuality, negative thinking, anxiety and low self esteem. Having recently become a mother, I am also passionate about working with women and men who are struggling with problems related to parenthood, pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal depression. It can be such a wonderful yet stressful time with so many changes and pressures and I feel it is so important to have a safe space to talk and get the support you need..
I am now offering both face to face and online counselling via Skype, Zoom etc. Please get in touch if you'd like to know more.
My first session
In our initial consultation, I will ask you about yourself, the issues that are affecting you and what you hope to achieve from coming to counselling. You can also ask me any questions you may have and decide if you would like to go into therapy with me. If I think that I am not the best counsellor to suit your needs, I may be able to refer you onto someone more appropriate.
