EMMA’S APPROACH

Emma seeks to assist adults in all aspects of mental health using a variety of frameworks including Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Family Systems Theory. She also sees young people with the involvement of their parents. Emma has significant experience helping people to address and overcome the following difficulties:

Anxiety and Stress

Most people experience anxiety from time to time, and it can often be useful as a motivating force or warning sign. However, when symptoms of anxiety start to interfere with day to day life and relationships it can be helpful to seek professional advice.

Common forms of anxiety include social anxiety (e.g.public speaking or social situations), phobias, generalised anxiety (e.g. worrying too much about different areas of life including work, finances or family), experiencing panic attacks, and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

Anxiety and stress can increase at times of change and adjustment, such as sitting exams, having a baby, moving house, or the loss of a relationship or loved one.

Depression and Low Mood

It is normal to have some days which are more difficult than others. However, if mood difficulties become persistent and impact areas like sleep, appetite, hope for the future and relationships, it can be a good idea to get professional help.

Relationships

When we experience difficulties with anxiety or depression our relationships are often impacted. Relationship difficulties can also affect how we feel day to day. Emma’s approach to relationships is influenced by her Family Systems Training and focusses on what each individual can do within their control to manage present challenges. Emma is experienced in helping individuals improve relationships with family members, friends or colleagues.

Emma has a special interest in working with people from a Christian Background and in Faith based organisations.
