For Individuals

Adults, Adolescents & Children

Emma adopts an integrated approach to provide individually tailored therapy which respects the uniqueness of each person’s experience. Her philosophy is to offer a safe environment where clients can feel secure in the counselling process to better understand the self, the ways issues develop and are sustained, as well as maximising growth, healing, and recovery. Emma believes strongly in every person’s potential to overcome difficulties and trusting their instinct in doing this in their own time.

Adopting a collaborative approach, therapy is built on a strong foundation of trust and hope; essential components to optimise growth, healing and recovery.

Emma’s work experience has a strong focus on working with women and children in private practice.  Approaching a decade in working with clients and families from diverse backgrounds, Emma has developed robust clinical skills which fit well with either an individual orientation or family orientation.
