Emma HinksonExistential psychotherapist
Do you feel like the emotional baggage of life is weighing you down? Would you like someone you can explore your thoughts with? Who can help you navigate the messiness of life with, and start to unpick and make sense of your experiences? My name is Emma, and I am a compassionate, friendly and professional psychotherapist who can help you navigate who you are and start to build the life you want.
I am also a registered adult nurse with over ten years of experience working with long term conditions and terminal illness. I believe our mental and physical health are inextricably linked and my work aims to shine a light on how these two aspects interact in your life.
My approach is to guide you through your experiences, both past and present, and for us to work together to create an understanding of who you are in the world and how you interact with your environment, paving the way for a more authentic you.
