Emma Leonce is a psychotherapist working in private practice in Chancery Lane, Paddington and Waterloo. Her primary focus when working with clients is to provide a safe, caring, honest and open space for you to express yourself and a solid foundation to build upon. The relationship is key, and from this place, personal development and the potential for growth and change can flourish. Emma does not believe in being a closed book in relationship with her clients, and although she is extremely careful to hold professional boundaries, she is not analytical or judgemental in her way of working. Life can be extremely difficult and she is present to listen and support you through your experiences.
She works open-ended and from a transpersonal approach, and the term ‘transpersonal’ means ‘beyond the personal’, and this reflects the core aim of this holistic approach to psychotherapy, which is to explore human growth and accompany her clients in their journey in discovering a deeper and more authentic self. She combines talking therapy with some creative work and psychodynamic, humanistic and existential approaches, suited to your individual needs.
Whilst one cannot change the past, Emma truly believes in the healing potential of psychotherapy in the present and for the future, and that it can help you to create a life which is purposeful and gratifying.
Emma has several years of experience working with clients who are victims of sexual abuse and violence in particularly in their childhood. She also have several years seeing clients with a range of issues such as depression, addiction, physical abuse, suicidal ideation, self-esteem issues, bereavement, anxiety and trauma in Notting Hill. She has completed observational work in a psychiatric institution dealing with psychosis and eating disorders. She also has nearly a decade of experience working in the media industry so understand the demands of a high pressured work environment and freelance career.
After an initial phone conversation she will meet you for an initial consultation in which you will both get the opportunity to find out about each other and ask questions to ensure you can work together. It is important to Emma that she can support you in your expectations of therapy and that you feel she is the right therapist for you. After that sessions are weekly for fifty minutes.
