I began my journey with a lot of stress and anxiety and a drink and drug addiction. Even though I was in denial, Emma helped me relentlessly to realize that the actions I was choosing to do had consequences on my physical and mental health. 11 months ago I was not able to talk to a worker in a shop, in a bank or in most places because I would be over-thinking and doubting myself. I thought everyone was looking at me and judging me. As time went on and week by week we spoke about what was going on in my day to day life. Emma helped me realize that it was not the strangers that worked in the shops the ones who had the problem, but rather, me. I had to accept that blaming others instead of looking at myself was where the problem lied. I’ve become aware that I was telling myself I was supposed to talk and look a certain way and that I was worried about what others thought about me. Now I know I am responsible for what I think and I am learning to identify the thoughts that no longer serve me. I have become aware of the stories I was telling myself.
Using alcohol and drugs as an escape was not the answer, it was only adding to my problems. Now I can say I have taken the decision to quit them and focus on my state of mind, to be in the present and breathe. These are the kind words of Emma who is a great person and therapist. I thank her dearly for her help and support. I still have anxious moments, but as time goes on and with a great healer, I’m determined to take back the control of my mind and emotions and live a happy, less stressed and anxious life and be the best person I can for me and my family. I want to thank Emma so much for helping me get to where I am today.»
«Emma has really helped and encouraged me to get out of my head. When I first came to her I could barely speak two sentences without stopping to think about what I was saying. With her, I have learned again to slow down and breathe; to start with the first thought and feeling that comes up, and to remember that life continues flowing on.”
«I went to Emma originally because my husband and I were having a crisis in our relationship. I thought it was all about him but it became clear very quickly that it wasn’t about him but about me. I am learning to value myself, give time to myself and nurture myself. Emma has provided a safe and comfortable environment for me to think about myself. The most important thing I have learned is that everything starts from within. We could all benefit from therapy – from taking a little time to understand ourselves better.»
«Emma helped me to become more conscious about myself, to listen to my body and find a balance that I felt I lacked when I started the sessions. I also feel I gained a better awareness of how to deal with certain moments and be caring for the present, focusing on the positive rather than the negative.
Changes must come first from yourself to be able to change things around you.
I recommend the good energy that Emma transmits.»
