Emily Willett MA Reg Mem MBACP

I am a qualified counselling psychotherapist, registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I recognise taking the step to talk about what is troubling you with someone can be daunting.  I provide a confidential, warm, empathic and non-judgemental space where you can be heard and understood.

I offer professional, high quality and confidential counselling to adults and young people in a safe environment, with the possibility of long term work, or short term, to work on specific issues.

Counselling is an opportunity to talk about whatever is troubling you with someone who is not involved in your personal life. We can explore your problems, often linking issues from the past to the present. This might help you understand patterns of behaviour and enable you to make changes. 

I have experience of working with people who have struggled with issues such as:

- depression
- bereavement
- anxiety
- family or relationship issues
- low self esteem/self confidence
- trauma or abuse
- addiction, eating disorders or self-harm
- illness

My approach involves looking at significant relationships experienced in our early years; how they may now be impacting on our current lives and relationships and possibly contributing to present emotional difficulties. I aim to help you make sense of your feelings, however difficult, and gain greater self-awareness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained intensively for five years for a Post-graduate Diploma in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling and a Masters Degree at the University of Hertfordshire.

I also have a BA Hons degree from University of East Anglia.

I have experience of working with young people as well as adults in a variety of settings. I have also worked for a bereavement service and within a well-known mental health charity.

I am a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

I work within the BACP code of ethics.
