The circumstances that bring people to therapy are as unique as the people themselves. Some people find it easy to define what brings them to therapy: it might be a bereavement, anxiety while socialising, a relationship breakdown, or something from the past that is affecting the present. Some people find it really difficult to put their finger on what they're feeling, but they know something isn't quite right: perhaps it's a struggle to find meaning, purpose, confidence or joy. Some people come to therapy because they want to examine their life, to get to know themselves better, or to dedicate some time to self-care.
Whatever your unique circumstances are, there is room for them in therapy.
Put simply, therapy is a space for you to talk, without anyone judging you or telling you what to do. We explore what's on your mind at your pace, in your style. Together, we work towards finding what feels like the right way forward for you.
Hello, I'm Emily: an East London-based therapist specialising in working with loss, burnout, loneliness, relationship challenges, identity questions, lack of direction, insecurity, anxiety and LGBTQ+ issues.
I work with anyone who wants something to be different in their life.
I'm originally from Bristol, but I've lived, studied and worked in London for over ten years. I practice as an Integrative counsellor, so I use ideas from several different theories. This means I can offer a flexible approach, curated to what you want from therapy - whether that's solutions to an immediate issue, a deeper exploration of your life, or a combination of the two. I'm a Registered Member of the BACP and I work within their Ethical Framework.
