“If you are considering investing in yourself and healing whatever pain ails you, I would first wholeheartedly encourage you to do so, and secondly, to wholeheartedly do so opposite this lady. Emily genuinely lives her mantra of non-judgement and behind her warmth, kindness and loving presence, is a very well-educated lady in the art of psychology and healing.

She comes with my 100% recommendation as well as my sincere gratitude for helping me find the power to live a life much freer from the pains and lack of power that I first carried in through her door.”

“I was recommended to Emily through a friend at a time of my greatest need. My dysfunctional past had caught up with me. I was a workaholic running away from the past, running but with no chance of escape.

I worked with Emily every week for a long period of time. There were a lot of emotional layers protecting myself from the past. The layers went deep, some to a level of pre-memory. This required much patience, professionalism and sensitivity from Emily to keep a balance between progressing at a sustainable pace, and building up tools that allowed me to cope with the layers of emotion we discovered and released.

As the layers were revealed, and subconscious decisions based on dysfunctional past experiences turned to a greater extent into conscious decisions, my quality of life improved. The growth is slow at first but it becomes exponential, until the last few months when the pace was exhilarating.  

I am now so grateful that I have a greater ability to make decisions based on my feelings in the moment rather than on stored emotions of the past. There are no guarantees that those decisions are correct but they are more likely to be if based on true feelings. In the end I found a greater ability to just be myself and attract my kind of people into my life. No hunting for the elusive gold at the end of the rainbow, just allowing a natural attraction to come to me. I think it must be up there as one of life’s greater gifts. “

“Emily made me feel at ease right from the first time we met. She provided a place for me to address my issues where I felt secure, supported and understood. My future feels much brighter thanks to her empathy and professionalism in helping me through a hard time in my life.”

"Before I reached out to Emily, my world had turned grey and blunt. Life had lost its fervour, and I was completely detached from my feelings. Just as I was struggling to make sense of it all, Emily stepped into my life, and I was finally able to deal with the consequences of suppressing my emotions and past trauma. Emily and I hit it off almost immediately, and over the course of our sessions, we developed a wonderful and expressive language completely of our own. Emily made me feel safe. I never felt judged by her, and her inputs and reflections really helped me make sense of everything.

Over time I felt the colour and sharpness return to my world, and I feel better equipped to deal with life’s obstacles. More than that, I feel I have a connection to my emotions again. I can’t sing Emily’s praises highly enough for helping me achieve this, and it goes without saying that I would highly recommend her services. I would encourage anything thinking about counselling to give it a go; it can really make a difference."

"Emily supported me for over a year in helping me understand who I am; that I am not different to other people, it's not wrong to be emotional, and to better understand what I want from life and what is important to me.  Emily will not provide you with the answer, but guides you in a positive manner with appropriate doses of empathy and understanding. Be prepared to work and take time to focus on you."

"I first started going to see Emily when things in life got very tough for me. She was instantly very easy to talk to and I felt it to be a comfortable space to discuss challenging things in my life with no concern over any judgement. Emily helped me make rational sense of thoughts and issues in my life, to which I was then able to approach with a logical understanding. We built a comfortable working relationship very quickly, and I felt that she was virtually an extension of my brain. I was able to take a step back and re-evaluate things. Now that we have finished working together, overall I feel much stronger, confident and capable to deal with life’s issues and a tremendous pressure has been lifted. I will always be grateful for the support and comfort offered during a very tough period in life and would have no hesitation recommending Emily to friends or family in the future, if they needed similar assistance."

"Thanks. I feel so much better and stronger thanks to you. I really appreciate your help and support. You are brilliant at what you do."

"Thank you for the amazing support you have given me over the last year. You helped me through the most difficult time and gave me the opportunity to take a step back when everything seemed overwhelming."

"There were days I felt physically and mentally ill and couldn't understand what was happening to me ... After my first session with Emily I couldn't wait to book my next appointment. Emily is flexible with appointments, keeps everything private and confidential and has given me a new outlook on my life. My confidence was brought back. I am now looking into the first stages of being a counsellor myself."

~

"Thank you for supporting me through some of life's toughest moments. You have offered a listening ear and a safe space, and for that I will always be thankful."

"I went to see Emily when I was struggling to cope with things that had built up in my life. I never thought that counselling of any kind would work for me, but it really did. I often describe the process I went through with Emily as being like a loft clear-out for my head. It was well worth dedicating an hour each week to learning and understanding more about myself and why I deal with things the way I do. A year later and I feel like I have the tools to cope with anything that crosses my path. I would highly recommend Emily’s services, even if you’ve never considered counselling before."
