Founder & Head Counsellor
Emma fully qualified in Professional Counselling back in late 2019 and then soon after launched her private practice The Flawed Journey.
Emma went down the path of starting her career as a Mental Health Counsellor at a time when she was also battling with her own mental health but found it difficult to locate young therapists with services that include no waiting time and avoids charging large fees.
Upon completing professional studies, Emma decided to launch her private practice and provide her services to clients which includes no waiting time, accessible services with affordable fees.
Emma is from Northern Ireland and is currently based online working remotely with both adults & adolescents. Emma sees herself as a passionate Mental Health Counsellor & Advocate who believes in providing a unique service that will "normalise" talk therapy and ease the stigma around individuals seeking help.
Emma has been helping a variety of different clients in Australia, UK, Ireland and many other parts of the world since late 2019 and has extensive experience working with many common issues such as anxiety, trauma, depression, expatriate / relocation issues, relationship break ups, self - esteem issues, and most recently C-19 response.
Emma has been working closely with expats based in Sydney and over time she has formed a very effective relaxed approach for young people which is Walk N Talk therapy, find out more here.
Emma uses a Person - Centred approach and works from therapy models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Emma has internationally recognised memberships with the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT), Complementary Therapists Accredited Association (CTAA), Online Therapy Directory and International Therapist Directory.
Emma assures you that through seeking The Flawed Journey's services, you will breakthrough any challenges or difficulties your mental health is causing you and will feel safe, comfortable and relaxed through your therapy journey with us.
