"I work with you as an individual – a process that aims to explore issues central to you in a way that is non-judgmental and down-to-earth."
Whether this is the first time that you’re seeking out therapy or if you have done this before, the process can be overwhelming. But you should know that by being here you've taken an important step forward in beginning to resolve your personal struggles.
I am a fully qualified humanistic integrative psychotherapist, with over a decade of experience working both within private and public therapeutic services. I am a registered member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I adhere to their ethical code of practice and confidentiality.
My approach is grounded in integrative, humanistic psychology, which comes from the belief that no single model of therapy will be suitable for every person. I work with you as an individual – a process that aims to explore issues central to you in a way that is non-judgmental and down-to-earth. As such, my practice is flexible and adapted according to your needs. I hope that my way of working will help you feel heard and understood rather than being offered advice or ready-made solutions.
I have extensive experience working with Eating Disorders (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, Orthorexia and OSFED) and have also worked with a range of different presentations including anxiety, depression, addictions and pre/post-natal illness.
Outside of my private practice, I lead a counselling and psychotherapy service for parents and carers of children with ASD and ADHD in a specialist neurodiversity organisation. Additionally, I am the mother of two children and am hugely passionate about supporting clients through any period relating to parenthood, from (in)fertility, pregnancy, postnatal depression and any issues relating to parenting - including raising children with SEN.
What Clients Say
"For so many years I believed it wasn’t possible to escape my eating disorder. I had almost given up when I went to see Emma-Jane, I was bingeing, purging, starving every single day (it was a living hell). Through my sessions she showed me a new life of recovery WAS possible and she helped me believe that I was worth it. I can’t thank her enough; she has changed my life forever."
"My son was diagnosed with autism when he was six. Watching him struggle at school and at home was so very difficult and I felt angry with the world. To me it was extremely important that I could talk to someone who I knew understood the way I felt. I was so frightened about his future but speaking to someone who cared made me feel less alone, as if someone was in my corner. Although in my case I can’t make my son’s autism disappear, I have learnt to make time for my own feelings. I can’t tell you how much I’ve been helped by this experience."
"I wish I had found EJ sooner! She really helped me understand my thought processes in a more coherent way. I suffered daily from anxiety and my negative thinking patterns had taken over. She shared a number of tools that will always stay with me and help me deal with difficult situations in the future. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her."
