About the Therapist
My name is Emma Dillon and I am a BACP Registered counsellor and psychotherapist, offering a client-led and integrative approach to therapy. Our appointments can be face-to-face at my welcoming therapy space Sowerby Bridge, or alternatively online/ via telephone or walk-and-talk.
While working together, our relationship is absolutely central and the approach taken will be as unique as you are. Our sessions will often incorporate mindfulness-based, creative and cognitive tools, techniques and ideas, which will support you to arrive at solutions and conclusions that are aligned with who you are.
I have over 12 years of experience as a therapist working with people 1:1 to improve their mental and physical health, initially in physical wellbeing and as a mindfulness teacher and more recently as a counsellor.
My experience has given me the skills to help you move forward with whatever you are facing with self-compassion.
I work with client's both on a short term and long term basis, depending on what is right for you.
Whether you have been for counselling before, experienced other therapies or are considering it for the first time, your questions are entirely welcome and we will work collaboratively throughout.
As a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I am bound by their ethical standards, including confidentiality.
