Emma Marlin

Humanistic Psychotherapist 

Email me

I am an experienced therapist, who is warm, direct and easy to talk to.

I work with adults, young adults and couples on a wide range of issues including anxiety, anger, relationship difficulties, parenting, family building, grief and loss.

Starting therapy can seem really daunting so it can be a huge relief to have a confidential space to explore what is going on in your life and how it is impacting you.

Although your history is important, (it’s therapy after all) your past is only one piece of the puzzle. Our feelings and emotions form the core of who we are, yet many of us have never learned how to express how we are really feeling.

Therapy with me will give you the tools to understand what is going on and build a more satisfying experience of your life.

Psychotherapy with Emma

Therapy can be short-term or open-ended, for as long as you find it helpful.

We will start by having a phone call to discuss your needs and our mutual availability. I will then invite you to an initial face to face session which is an opportunity for us to make sure we are a good fit. After this session, you can decide if you would like to continue working with me and we book a set of sessions.

We review our work together regularly so that you and I can ensure you are getting what you want.

I will listen, ask questions and give honest feedback.

Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all undertaking so I tailor my approach to respond to your needs and check frequently to ensure you are getting what you came for.

My goal is to leave you with strategies, skills, and an experience of knowing yourself that can be transferred from the therapy room to your life.
