Emma FosterIntegrative counsellor
Hello my name is Emma. Welcome to my profile. Contacting a therapist for the first time can sometimes be a daunting experience but I hope that the details provided on the site, go someway to reassure you.
Many of us have times when things can feel out of control, or we feel particularly low or overwhelmed in our lives. During these times we sometimes struggle to find the right direction or a purpose.
Counselling can enable you to talk about difficult situations and feelings with a trained practitioner. It is a process that can help you to explore your thoughts and emotions and gain self-awareness. Knowing ourselves at a deeper level can enable us to make better decisions in life.
Good therapy is a collaboration between the therapist and client. It's not about being told what to do by the therapist, it's about working together to see the bigger picture of your life in order to put it back together in a way that is right for you.
If you would like to discuss your needs in more detail either by phone or email, I would love you hear from you.
I work with adults and adolescents over a broad spectrum of issues but specialise in working with clients who have been impacted by domestic violence, sexual abuse/assault or rape and have extensive working knowledge.
I work face to face, by Skype or home visits for those who are housebound.
