Emily HiltonIntegrative psychotherapist
Hello, I'm Emily, I'm a fellow Londoner and a therapist.
I specialise in helping Millennials and members of the LGBTQ+ community with all sorts of life challenges and questions.
Sometimes, I work within quite specific areas, including loss, anxiety, relationships, communication, conflict, identity, lack of direction, purpose or meaning, and LGBTQ+ issues. At other times, people come to see me because something in their life just doesn’t feel right, even if they can't quite put their finger on what that something is.
How I work
I'm an Integrative therapist, so my approach is influenced by ideas from lots of different places. I came to therapy via studying philosophy, languages and literature (as dry as that may sound!), and this background continues to influence my work - as do other areas of thought and culture, such as film and TV, video games and podcasts. I have a long-held interest in how we each view ourselves and our world, and I find that art and culture can provide us with a window into better understanding our own experience.
I view therapy as an opportunity to see ourselves, our relationships and our patterns of thinking, feeling and communicating more clearly. When we can better understand these aspects of our lives, we become much more able to make meaningful change happen within them. I'm a great believer that every life lived is worth examining - and that through this examination, we can learn how to live a life that actually fits us well.
I offer a flexible approach, curated to what you want from your therapy - whether that's solutions to an immediate issue, a deeper exploration of your life, or a combination of the two. I'm a Registered Member of the BACP and I work within their Ethical Framework.
If you feel that I may be a good fit with what you're looking for, you're welcome to get in touch - send me an email, and we can take it from there.
