Emily Childs

Emily states she believes everyone is unique, people learn and process in different ways, which is why she likes to use whatever approach she feels her client is going to benefit from the most. Emily also said, due to her lifelong struggle with dyslexia and her realisation that working with visual aids is a good way of explaining emotions and feelings to people, she feels due to this she can offer a different perspective within her counselling work if required.

 

I use an integrative approach with a visual element, using exercises to help you the client understand what is going on for you. I incorporate CBT, Psychodynamic, person-centered, Transitional Analysis, and the 3 Stages of Trauma within my practice.

 

In my experience, I have heard stories of distress and sadness, but I have also heard stories of strength and achievement. I believe that therapy can be challenging and a real struggle at times but if you are persistent with the process then you will see the benefits. How you see yourself will have a big impact on how you handle aspects of your life, I want to help put you back in control’. ‘You are your own cure; I am here to help see you through that journey to get you where you want to be.

 

Prior to counselling I have worked in several different career sectors, this has given me an understanding and experience working within a team, being able to understand different perspectives of life.

 

I am experienced in Anxiety, Bereavement/Loss, Depression, Gambling Addiction, Procrastination, Self-esteem/self-worth, Sexual Trauma, and Trauma.
