Couple Counselling

Emma has experience of working with couples both in a open-ended and a time-limited way.

Being in a couple can be amazing but at times, due to life’s stresses, conflict and communication issues, it can be hard.  Through open discussion and exploration, issues can be aired and resolved in order to build a strong, lasting and loving relationship.


Emma has a BA majoring in Behavioural Science and a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from Strathclyde University. She is an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abides by their ethical guidelines.
