With experience working alongside girls and women affected by sexual, emotional, psychological and physical violence, trauma and abuse, Emily is committed to working with girls and women to realise their full potential, and live safe and empowered lives.
The effects of trauma can suppress emotion and lead us to feeling disconnected, numb, anxious or depressed.
Emily brings trauma-based skills to her practice, gently and compassionately addressing the effects of trauma with survivors, allowing each person to choose the pace, nature and focus of their therapeutic journey.
Emily draws on Emotion Focused Therapy, an evidence based, person-centred approach to addressing trauma.
Myths in our society

Emily is a passionate believer in gender equality and is dedicated to seeing each and every girl and woman free from all restictions she may face- internal or external, to realising her full potential and living a whole, rich and empowered life.

The inner strength and capacity of girls and women
Emily believes that each girl and woman has her own source of inner strength, wisdom, knowledge and is the expert of her own life, needs, dreams, desires and goals. Emily’s aim though her practice is to work along side women and girls to reconnect or connect more deeply to their own inner resources, skills and capacity.
