Additional Information:

Due to a broad training background, Emily has grounding in various different therapeutic approaches, which allows her to be flexible in how she works with each individual:

“I try to listen to the therapeutic goals of the client before deciding upon what sort of approach might ‘fit’. Sometimes a client may be unsure what their immediate goals for therapy are, which would lead me to consider having a more open, explorative stance in the therapy. At other times, I might use a more cognitive behavioural (CBT) approach to support someone to actualise behavioural changes in their life. I believe that an understanding of a person’s past relationships is extremely important in order to help them understand their current difficulties, and I see therapy as a way of detangling oneself from old, painful relational habits. I try and work with transparency, which involves being clear about how therapy works and how we will measure when you have achieved your goals.”

Emily is co-founder of Mums In Mind, a wellbeing service for mothers and babies, also based at Lily House. For more information please visit:
