Emma Hinkson is a supportive therapist who works alongside her clients as they navigate their emotions and provides collaborative insights into potential blocks in their lives; this is made possible by creating a secure and safe space in which they can tell their story. Due to her medical background, Emma Has the benefit of having experience of working with clients with chronic diseases and terminal illness. She has extensive experience of listening to people in some of their darkest hours, due to illness. She believes people focus too much on the physical aspects of their health, often neglecting that it is deeply and intrinsically linked to their mental and spiritual wellbeing. As an existential therapist, Emma believes that only by nurturing all of these aspects of one’s existence, you can start to fulfil all that it means to be human and to live in this world. She also believes that people exist in the presence of others and that we cannot tackle life’s problems without looking at our relationships.
Emma also works as a Nurse in a busy London General Practice. She has worked with those with long term conditions and palliative care and understands the effects stress has on physical health, and the impact of disease on mental health. She works together with her clients to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
Emma is an existential trainee psychotherapist and is a student member of BACP. She works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS counselling service and sees clients at a GP surgery in Lambeth. Emma is currently working towards her Professional Doctorate in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling.
