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. Therapy isn't reserved for any specific person, emotion or life event: just wanting to feel happier, or to get know yourself better, or to have a place to talk, is more than enough to start a conversation.
How I work
I came to therapy via studying philosophy, languages and literature (as dry as that may sound!). This background continues to influence my work, as do several different schools of thought and culture (including, as a quintessential Millennial, 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 often provide us with a window into better understanding our own experience.
A focus on developing and deepening awareness is a hallmark of my practice, as it is much easier to process, accept or change things once we can understand them. Every life lived is worth examining - and through that examination, we can discover 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 for you, or if you have any questions you'd like to ask me to help you determine this, you're very welcome to get in touch. The best way to contact me is via email, and I will respond to you by the next working day.
