Hello! I'm Emma, a qualified person-centred counsellor in the Bolton and North Manchester area. Over the years I have experienced for myself the benefits of talking, and the power of feeling truly heard. Counselling changed my life for the better, allowing me to deal with and move forward from various struggles and challenges, and learn to better understand myself. In doing this I was driven to want to support others to achieve their own clarity, relief and happiness, and so began my career in counselling.
As a person-centred therapist, I work in a non-directive way providing a safe, non-judgemental space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings freely. During our sessions together we will work at your pace, looking at what is most important to you and gaining insight into what is causing your unhappiness. This can be a difficult process, but also one which can help you to begin to truly heal.
I am a fully qualified person-centred counsellor, with experience working with a whole range of mental health issues and life experiences. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), and therefore work to the BACP's Ethical Framework, ensuring that I am working safely and to a high standard. I am fully insured and DBS checked.
