Welcome to Counselling with Em

Hi, Welcome to my website. I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor based in Bacup, East Lancashire. I offer Face to Face, Online and Telephone Counselling to young people and adults 14 years upwards based in the UK.

You may be feeling nervous and find yourself here because you want someone to talk to due to finding life difficult right now. Looking for a counsellor can be a daunting experience and you may have lots of questions for me. I am a friendly, down to earth person who is approachable and understanding.  When you meet me I will offer you a warm smile and make sure you feel relaxed and comfortable.  During our sessions together I will provide you with honesty, empathy and a non-judgemental therapeutic space using integrative techniques to help you explore any difficulties or problems you may have to lead a happier and more fulfilling life. Together we can build a warm, safe and trustworthy relationship.  

I am passionate about offering clients the opportunity to explore their issues. Some of the areas I have worked with are:

  • Personal Difficulties and Life Changes
  • Anxiety
  • Depression and Low Mood
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence
  • Stress

My counselling technique comes from the humanistic modality of counselling.  My belief is the strength of the relationship between the counsellor and client is one of the most important factors for you to be able to find a way of life which is more rewarding. By offering you this unique experience you will be able to build on the relationship you have with yourself, can find a way of life which is more rewarding and become more aware of your coping strategies.  This exploration can support you to deal with present and future situations.

Please feel free to explore my website to find out more about me and my approach. If you have any questions or believe counselling would be helpful, please get in touch via the telephone or email.  I offer a free 20-minute telephone appointment where we both can find out a little bit about each other and how we can work together.
