Children and Young People Counsellor: Emma
Are you a young person who is struggling to cope with difficult emotions such as anxiety or anger? Maybe you are struggling with your identity and feeling overwhelmed?
Perhaps you are struggling to find a safe person that you can open up to?
If you would like some help understanding the way you feel to make positive changes moving forward, then please contact me.
Emma is a member of the British Association of Counselling Professionals and has extensive experience in supporting children, young people and their families.
Asking for help is especially difficult for children and young people who often find the challenges of life overwhelming and can feel that nobody will understand how they feel, as often they do not understand how or why they feel this way themselves. This then can leave them feeling ‘stuck’ and unable to make positive changes in their lives.
Emma offers a safe, caring, non-judgemental, professional and confidential space to talk about what is important to you. She uses an integrative approach meaning she uses a variety of techniques to help you work through whatever issues you may be experiencing.
She understands that talking is not for everyone which is why she is also able to offer a variety of creative approaches to help you explore your difficulties without needing to rely on talking therapies.
Examples of some difficulties you may be experiencing are:
- Self-harm or suicidal thoughts
- Exam Stress
- Body image
Training and experience
- Registered member of the BACP
- PgDip Counselling children and young people (Level 7)
- BSc Psychology and Education studies
- Safeguarding children and young people
- Understanding Adverse Childhood Events leading to trauma
If you feel that Emma may be able to help you or someone you care about, then please contact her below; she will arrange an initial phone call to explore what issues you may be facing and whether counselling feels right for you.
Emma works at The Dr Jenni Clinic on Mondays.
