Hello, I am Emma. I am a Humanistic counsellor who recognises the importance of an individual's potential and their ability to experience growth and change. I specialise in a type of therapy known as 'Transactional Analysis'. Transactional Analysis may enable a more structured way of working and it can be very useful for understanding your own relationship rhythms, ways of coping and responding, and historic - sometimes outdated - behaviours. Much of my experience includes working with trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, low self-esteem and identity.
I volunteer at a women's service for victims of domestic abuse and also at a charitable organisation where I see a wide range of clients. I run my own private practice from a convenient location in the southwest region. I offer and I am experienced in Zoom/Skype and phone therapy. This can often suit people by providing a flexible and effective alternative, particularly during the current COVID pandemic.
I have a particular interest in identity and what shapes and defines it. I believe many of us may lose our sense of self at one or more stages in our life. This is often simply due to everyday life events; such as having children, marriage and separation or the death of a loved one. These challenging and disorientating changes can erode your confidence and leave you feeling out of touch with who you thought you were. Once we begin to lose that 'core' self, we are less able to calmly respond and cope using our usual strategies. We may feel vulnerable, confused and exhausted.
I am committed to my continuing professional development and therefore regularly attend workshops to enhance my knowledge, understanding and grounding in this field.
