Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Emma Murray has been working as an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist for 5+ years. Her integrative approach is grounded in being client-led and developing a relationship with clients based on trust and safety. Emma supports clients to better understand themselves, to make sense of their responses and to think about what they want and how they might go forward.
She has an interest in anxiety and attachment and often works with clients looking to understand how they think and feel in the world. She has worked with many clients experiencing anxiety, depression, low-self esteem or difficulties in relationships.
She has also found herself working with clients bringing experiences and concerns relating to fertility, pregnancy, loss and life stages/decisions around career/family. Emma has an appreciation of the complexity of these issues and the importance of a non-judgemental, reflective space.
Emma Murray says: ‘I work relationally. I see my clients as human, and myself as human too. I have a sense of the type of terrain that we are likely to go through in therapy, and at the same time, I appreciate that my clients are the experts on their lives and experiences. Our therapy is a partnership. My aim is to create a space where clients know they will be heard and encouraged to think about what is happening for them. Over time this can make room for a stronger sense of self; for self-awareness, choice and change.’
Alongside her Private Practice, Emma works as a therapist and Clinical Lead for a charity counselling service based in London.
