Hi, I'm Emily, I have been in private practice for about 12 years now, starting as a life coach then moving into transpersonal (holistic) counselling and more recently as a somatic trauma counsellor. Whilst my life journey has had a few hurdles along the way, I've continued to learn and grow. By consistently evolving, embracing new therapeutic methods and honing my craft. Throughout this time it has become apparent how often our health system in the western world misses the mark when treating people. Quite often when clients engage with our services, they have been accessing treatment , support and medication for years and it is not fixing the issue, it is just band-aiding it , or the side affects from medication have created a whole new layer of challenges for the individual.
I believe through both learned and life experiences I have the tools and methods to help guide you on your path to recovery. To achieve stability through nature based practices and somatic trauma informed counselling steeped in polyvagal theory framework. Reconnection to mind and body.

The Restorative Practices Alliance
The Restorative Practices Alliance is a global trans-disciplinary community and movement whose objective is to support superior clinical outcomes in medicine and mental health by uniting the newest (neurophysiology and data science) and oldest (ancestral awareness) healing technologies.
Focusing on optimizing wellbeing, and the diagnosis and treatment of stress-related disorders, including anxiety, depression, traumatic stress, sleep difficulties, gastro-intestinal disorders, and certain auto-immune diseases.
As a member of the Restorative Practices Alliance I am licensed to connect my clients to the (R)evolutionary Clinical Treatment Platform, "which is a superior diagnostic and clinical tool that is defining the future of medicine and mental health. It is being used to improve client outcomes and accelerate treatment efficacy for a range of stress related conditions including anxiety, depression, gastro intestinal distress, PTSD, complex chronic illness and others". I am offering this online platform to specific clients as a secondary level of therapeutic support.
To me STABLE means being in balance in our hearts , minds and bodies. It is my goal to ease people’s suffering who have been impacted by overwhelming stress or trauma and support as many people as I can to move to a place of balance and harmony with themselves and those around them. We living beings are fundamentally meant for growth , we just need to have the right conditions for this to happen. - We are human beings not human doings.
