Emma Roberts - Counselling for Aylesbury

About Me

My Approach

I am a Person-Centred counsellor and supervisor based in Aston Clinton near Aylesbury. As a Person-Centred counsellor, I focus on the relationship with my clients and work with them to gain a better understanding of their feelings. My role is to help my clients achieve personal growth rather than provide advice. I believe in my clients’ potential to make the right decisions for themselves.

I hold a Foundation Degree in Person-Centred Counselling from Middlesex University as well as a level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills. In addition I have achieved the BACP Certificate of Proficiency. I also have a BA (Hons) Degree and a range of post graduate qualifications. I also hold a postgraduate certificate in clinical supervision. My background is in education. I regularly attend training as part of my ongoing professional development in areas such as bereavement, anxiety, anger management and sexual abuse. I also attend regular supervision sessions.

My Experience

I work with a wide range of clients including adults and young people. I support clients who have experienced bereavement, relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, trauma and low self-esteem amongst many other things. I also work with clients with mild learning difficulties and clients who do not speak English as their first language. In addition to my private practice, I work in a youth counselling agency and have also worked in the education sector, counselling young people with learning difficulties.
