Emma is an integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist. This means, that within her practice she is able to draw on many different therapeutic approaches, depending on what her client’s need. Emma believes that no therapeutic journey is the same and this is why she really listens and thinks carefully with her clients about what they need and how the treatment plan might evolve over time.
EEmma also understands the courage it takes for children, adolescents and their families to embark on a therapeutic journey and as a psychotherapist promises to be a dedicated support throughout this.
Emma strives to offer her clients a non- judgemental and confidential therapeutic space that feels safe, comfortable, warm, and containing.
Emma has gained extensive clinical experience within NHS settings which include St Thomas and Great Ormand Street supporting adolescents, younger children and families. Emma has also set up a therapeutic practice within a large London primary school, where she works closely with her local CAMHS team. She also helps teachers put into place support for children who are struggling within the classroom setting. Emma believes passionately in the importance of helping teachers to think more therapeutically about children who are unhappy and struggling at school, and who might be communicating this through their behaviour because they simply can’t find the words to explain it themselves. Helping children to have a happier and more positive experience of school was the driving force that lead Emma to developing her practice.
