about therapy

As a fellow Londoner, I know that life here can often be really tough, and that it's easy to lose track of ourselves when London feels like a dehumanising and disempowering environment. Therapy allows you space to step back from the distractions of city life: to focus just on what's going on for you, and on finding what feels like the right way forward for you.


Therapy brings you back to yourself.

 Put simply, therapy is a place for you to talk: at your pace, in your style, without anyone judging you or telling you what to do. Talking can be surprisingly powerful - it can show us patterns in our ways of thinking, feeling and being that we'd never noticed before. Once things can be seen more clearly, it becomes more possible to change them. Therapy opens the possibility of living a life that fits you better.


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, including loss, anxiety, relationships, communication, identity, lack of direction, purpose or meaning, and LGBTQ+ issues. Often, people come to see me because they just don't feel happy, even if they can't quite put their finger on why.

I'm originally from Bristol, and have lived, studied and worked in London for over a decade. I practice as an Integrative therapist, which means that I use ideas from several different schools of thought in my work. Therefore, I can offer a flexible approach, curated to what you want from your 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.

On biking, and how our thoughts about ourselves can hold us back. Apologies for the awful pun in the title: I couldn't resist

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