About Me

Emily and Luna (Circle)

As someone with dyslexia, I left school at the age of 16 and knew I always wanted to be a counsellor but because I was so young I went on and did my Health and Social care qualifications.

Because of my lifelong struggle with dyslexia and my realisation that working with visual aids is a good way of explaining emotions and feelings. I like to think that I can offer a different experience.

I gained valuable experience in the following areas:

  • Working in the community for Adults with Learning disabilities
  • Residential home
  • Community care
  • End of life care home

Through my experience it has shownme that I am an approachable person. I am also compassionate, bubbly and mindful of others and their feelings. I'm very down to earth and clients have told me that I have a way of explaining things. 

To ensure I am counselling ethically and safely, I take part in regular ‘top up’ training in a variety of subjects. These include:


  • Intrusive thoughts webinar
  • Trauma intensive training 
  • Trauma Awareness with Cruse Bereavement Care
  • The Aftermath of Rape and Sexual Abuse with Still Waters Counselling
  • Eating Disorders with Somerset & Wessex Eating Disorder Association
  • Bereavement Support Foundation Course with Cruse Bereavement Care including Safeguarding and Mental Health training
  • Gambling Addiction training with Gamcare
  • Online and Telephone Counselling with CT (Counselling Tutor)
