Emma Norman PgDip CMCOSCA
Counsellor & Psychotherapist in Edinburgh
Sometimes we feel unsure where to look for help and support when we find ourselves facing personal difficulties. If you're struggling with a particular issue or simply wish to explore and better understand yourself, counselling and psychotherapy may be right for you.
I offer individual, face to face sessions for adults in the West End and Meadowbank areas of Edinburgh. I provide a warm, confidential and nonjudgemental space in which we can explore what feels important to you. I can support you to explore your experience and begin your journey toward healing and self-discovery.
I trained in psychodynamic and person-centred counselling and psychotherapy at the University of Edinburgh. In addition to my private practice, I also volunteer at the PF Counselling Service.
My experience includes working with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, loss, trauma, existential crisis and identity, and relationship problems. I have a particular interest in working with young adults who are facing such difficulties, and people struggling with life transitions (e.g. starting or leaving university, beginning a career, navigating new or changing relationships). I believe in the value of a safe space in which you can explore these issues at your own pace.
I offer one to one counselling for adults in the Meadowbank area, and at The Next Chapter in the West End. Sessions last 50 minutes and usually take place at the same time each week. My standard session fee is £45 and I accept cash and credit/debit cards.
I offer short term and long term counselling, depending on your circumstances. You may feel that a set of twelve sessions will give you sufficient space to explore a particular issue that's been on your mind, or perhaps you are interested in longer term psychotherapy for a more in-depth experience of self discovery.
My training in psychodynamic and person-centred therapy allows me to draw on different therapeutic perspectives in order to best meet the individual needs of my clients. Psychodynamic therapy focuses on our self-awareness and understanding of how the unconscious past influences the present. The person-centred approach trusts in the individual’s inner resources and aims to facilitate growth through acceptance, authenticity and empathy.
I provide a warm, welcoming and confidential space for you to explore what feels important to you. Our work will include talking and reflecting on your past and present experience, and central to my way of working is forming a relationship within which you can feel truly heard and understood.
I am currently accepting new clients.
