about me

Hello, I'm Emily - a modern, down-to-earth, integrative psychotherapist based in London and online. I specialise in working with people in their 20s and 30s, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Sometimes I work within quite specific areas, including anxiety, burnout, relationships, self-esteem, self-criticism, perfectionism, communication, identity, lack of direction, purpose or meaning, and LGBTQ+ issues. At other times, people come to see me with a general sense of just wanting to feel more comfortable in themselves and in their life - not because something particular is 'wrong', but because they want things to feel more 'right'. 

Working as an integrative therapist means that I take ideas from many different places, so I offer a flexible and adaptable therapeutic approach. My background in studying philosophy, languages and literature heavily influences my work, as do film and TV, music, podcasts and video games: I find art and culture provide both a window into better understanding our own experience, and a language and context with which to explore it. 

 

I view therapy as an opportunity to see ourselves, our relationships and our patterns of thinking, feeling and communicating more clearly. When we can better understand these aspects of our lives, we become much more able to make meaningful change happen within them. And profound change really is possible: with more awareness of who we are, comes more freedom to live a life that actually fits us well. 

I'm a Registered Member of the BACP and I work within their Ethical Framework. I also write and contribute to articles about therapy and related subjects, and give the occasional presentation on these topics too (when I'm able to cajole PowerPoint into working with me!).
