I work systemically meaning I will explore everything surrounding you that makes you who you are today, influences such as family , friends, culture, religion etc.
Are you facing difficulties in life? Our experiences can make us pessimistic, assume the worst, be constantly worried about the past repeating itself and anxious about the future. Sometimes it can feel there’s no way out. It doesn’t have to be this way, you can change the way you think, in turn changing your outcomes, interactions, behaviours, and experiences. Well done for taking the first step to go to therapy, the next step is choosing the right therapist. I can help you explore your thoughts, where they stem from, work with you to build resiliency, healthy habits and help you achieve your therapy goals.

Therapy is not just about working through complex issues. Sometimes we can be so rushed off our feet with family , business and work priorities that we lose our footing. I can offer you the space to reconnect or explore your dilemmas.

I can imagine, given that you are here, there may be something in your life that is causing you discomfort. Welcome, and well done for taking the first step towards getting some support. Some people seek out therapy because they have felt depressed, anxious or angry for a long time; others may want help for relationship difficulties, self-destructive habits or a chronic illness that is interfering with their emotional or physical well-being. Sometimes, unexpected changes or circumstances also bring people into therapy - for example, going through a divorce, feeling overwhelmed by a new job, or grieving the loss of a family member.

Hello, I'm Emily - a modern, down-to-earth, integrative psychotherapist based in London and online. I specialise in working with Gen Y, Gen Z and the LGBTQ+ community. Sometimes I work within quite specific areas, including anxiety, burnout, interpersonal relationships, self-esteem, family dynamics, identity, and LGBTQ+ issues. At other times, people come to see me with a general sense of just wanting to feel more comfortable within themselves and their life - not because something in particular is 'wrong', but because they want things to feel more 'right'. Whatever it is that you want to explore in therapy, I will listen to you.

Everybody's family is a bit dysfunctional right? That's what you tell yourself anyway, when your heart sinks as 'Mum' appears on your phone. And you're ok now anyway. Well, mostly. You have a good job, friends, you go out. You're a proper adult and you have the Valentino shoes to prove it. Except late at night your brain starts whispering ‘you don’t belong, your life’s a mess, nobody will ever really love you’. Your carefully curated life feels fragile. You fear it’s only a matter of time until your adult card is revoked.

You may be experiencing relationship problems - with a partner, family and friends or colleagues and wondering why particular patterns keep occurring.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
