Welcome to Bury St Edmunds Counselling – written by Emma

When you feel you need some help and begin searching for a Counsellor, it can be scary.  I realise that if you are visiting Suffolk Counsellors Network, you may be doing so in search of help, maybe you are suffering some sort of emotional turmoil, loss, stress, anxiety or depression which seems to be taking over your life.
 It probably feels like no one can help you right now, however over a decade, a life changing event caused me to re-evaluate my future and what I needed and wanted from life.  With help from a very effective counsellor, I began to move forward and understand what makes me who I am.  It was really hard work, but well worth the effort and the uphill battle, as it felt it was back then!
My name is Emma and I am a qualified, BACP Accredited Counsellor and Link Adoption Counsellor based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.  For 15 years I have run a successful practice called Bury St Edmunds Counselling.  I work with adults, couples and teenagers over 14 years of age.
As part of my practice I work for a university with students who need additional support emotionally during their studies.  Part of my work is also for a variety of employee assistance companies like Aviva and Bupa.  I also still work for social services and enjoy working with military servicemen and women.  Before I went into private practice full-time, I also worked for social services for 7 years and part time for the NHS.
