Emily values bringing compassion, authenticity, and presence to therapy. She provides a non-judgemental space to help develop insight into stuck points and to provide clients with the resources to cope with difficult thoughts and feelings. She recognises the unique capacity of each individual and tailors her therapeutic approach towards finding what matters to them, and using that as an avenue for change.
Emily has experience working in inpatient and outpatient mental health settings, supporting adults and young people with a diverse range of mental health difficulties. Emily’s practice is informed by a variety of evidence-based interventions, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindful Self-Compassion, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and Schema Therapy.
Emily enjoys working with:
Anxiety disorders, including generalised and social anxiety.
Challenges with self-esteem and self-criticism
Depression and adjustment
Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders
Trauma, stress, and difficulty managing big emotion
Emily is committed to remaining current in her work. She regularly participates in supervision, training and professional development. She likes working alongside other health professionals to facilitate multidisciplinary care when helpful.
