Emma works from an evidence-based framework, predominantly within Cognitive Behavioural and Dialectical Behavioural Therapies (CBT & DBT).

In addition to providing 1:1 and relationship counseling, Emma completes vocational, cognitive and psychometric assessments and reports for her clients.
Using the basis of a person-centred perspective, Emma believes strongly in the need to provide compassion and empathy within the therapeutic alliance with her clients. When helping her clients address their challenges and work towards their personal goals she is guided by their individual needs and priorities.
