Emma Seymour aims to offer a warm and empathetic relationship in which you feel safe to explore whatever brings you to counselling. As an integrative counsellor, she draws on several therapeutic philosophies. Emma is influenced by the person-centred approach in her belief that counselling can help you to see yourself and your choices more clearly,and with more compassion. You may also wish to explore how past experiences and relationships continue to affect you, and Emma might draw on the psychodynamic tradition for this kind of work. A cognitive behavioural approach can also be helpful for exploring negative thinking habits, such as always assuming the worst, or a tendency to criticise yourself. Emma works flexibly to tailor her approach to each client’s changing needs, and to offer different perspectives on whatever is troubling you.
Emma has experience with a wide range of issues including anxiety,depression, stress, lack of motivation, loss of meaning, low self-esteem, and bereavement.She often works with the emotional complications which arise within families,and in relationships with partners, with friends, and in the workplace. It can be helpful to think together about communication issues which may block your capacity to express how you feel. Counselling can also be helpful when you are faced with major changes and choices in your life.
