about therapy

Therapy has no entry requirements – it isn’t reserved for any specific person, emotion or life event. Just wanting to feel happier, to get know yourself better, or to have a place to talk, is more than enough to start a conversation.

 

And, at its heart, therapy is a conversation – one held at your pace, in your style, with a focus on you and your world. In therapy, nobody tells you what to do, judges or criticises you: instead, we work together to uncover your voice, and to learn how to listen to it.

about me

Hello, I'm Emily. I'm an East London-based therapist specialising in helping Millennials and members of the LGBTQ+ community with all sorts of life challenges and questions.

Sometimes I work within quite specific areas, including loss, anxiety, relationships, communication, conflict, identity, lack of direction, purpose or meaning, and LGBTQ+ issues. At other times, people come to see me because something in their life just doesn’t feel right, even if they can't quite put their finger on what. 

​​

As an Integrative therapist, I offer a flexible therapeutic approach, shaped by several different schools of thought. I came to therapy via study of philosophy, languages and literature, and this continues to influence my work - as do film and TV, podcasts and video games. I have a long-held interest in how we each view ourselves and our world, and I find that art and culture can often provide us with a window into better understanding our own experience.

 

I view therapy as an opportunity to see ourselves, our relationships and our patterns of thinking, feeling and communicating more clearly. When we have more awareness of these aspects of our lives, we become much more able to make meaningful change happen within them. I'm a great believer that every life lived is worth examining - and that through this examination, we can learn how to live a life that actually fits us well.

An interview with Welldoing.org, in which I answered questions about how I work (and mentioned plants a lot, I notice in hindsight).
