Emma ComptonArt therapy psychotherapist
A passionate professional who feels that early years and emotional development are the key to success and a confident ability to navigate the world. Versatility and creativity are imperative to me and something that drives me. I am an energetic and motivated individual, with experience ranging from working with children, adolescents and adults. My focus has always been to assist with emotional and behavioural issues and have worked with adolescents with mental health issues for over 12 years.
My philosophy focuses on providing love for life; I aim to assist people to feel safe enough to begin to realise their potential and to gain resilience. Through a stabilising relationship, creating a safe space and consistent treatment I aim to help people to accept and value knowledge that can assist them to build a new future. I feel my role is about facilitating independence and helping people to adapt, have confidence and work well together - with a strong determination to succeed.
I feel that my broad experience has made me a confident practitioner who is able to adapt to suit a range of people and their needs.
