I’m Emily, and I offer private one-to-one psychotherapy and counselling in Central London near Oxford Circus and Goodge Street stations. I also work via Skype and over the phone.

Counselling and psychotherapy can be helpful whether you’re struggling with something specific, or just feeling generally low, overwhelmed or stuck. It offers you a place to slow down, reflect and explore new perspectives and possibilities. Perhaps you want things to be different in some way, or feel that some focused time to explore and better understand your thoughts and feelings might be helpful.

I’m an Integrative psychotherapist, which means that I blend several different therapeutic approaches (e.g. developmental, psychodynamic, gestalt and CBT) to use the best of each. In my work I draw on contemporary theories and evidence-based research about relationships, families and human development to inform my thinking and enable me to tailor our sessions. My aim is to encourage an open and exploratory dialogue, through which we can arrive at useful insights collaboratively. I will be alongside you in the conversation, rather than being a ‘blank screen’ or neutral observer.

I work with clients experiencing a range of issues: work related stress; family or relationship difficulties; mild to severe anxiety; depression; bereavement; low self-esteem; addiction; eating disorders; and difficulties with anger. Please feel free to read more about my background and expertise.

If you’re a bit unclear about what counselling or therapy is, you can learn more about what to expect and how our sessions might look . You also might like to watch this video from The School of Life that gives an explanation of psychotherapy in general:
