Registered Member of:  Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP). 

Messages from Emily: "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."
