Put simply, therapy is a place for you to talk, without anyone judging you or telling you what to do. It gives you space to think about your life, your experiences and your relationships, and to explore them at your pace, in your style.
There are no entry requirements to therapy: every life lived is worth examining, and whatever you are feeling is deserving of being listened to.
As a fellow Londoner, I know life here can often feel as if it's lived on autopilot. It's easy to lose track of ourselves amid the churn of juggling finances, social media and the work/life balance, and managing that churn can be draining. Therapy enables you to step back from those distractions: we focus on what's going on for you, and on finding what feels like the right way forward for you. It brings you back to yourself.
Hello, I'm Emily: an East London-based therapist specialising in helping 'millennials' and members of the LGBTQ+ community with challenges including loss, burnout, anxiety, low self-esteem or self-confidence, relationships, communication, lack of direction, purpose or meaning, and LGBTQ+ issues.
I'm originally from Bristol, and I've lived, studied and worked in London for over ten years. I practice as an Integrative therapist, 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.
