As such, she brings a diverse background to her work. She is also a trained Coach and has written several coaching programs in the areas of leadership and employment services. Emma’s counselling philosophy is based on offering the individual an alternative approach to common interventions, giving them the opportunity to acknowledge and confront their own self-imposed barriers to employment, design and master their individual solutions and implement a long-term plan that produces lasting change. Her approach is founded in humanistic and psychodynamic principles but utilises a solution focussed, positive psychology philosophy to bring about results. With significant experience in the public service, private industry and the larger non-government organisational sphere Emma has worked with clients from a diverse range of backgrounds and issues including depression, anxiety, relationship breakdown, addiction, complex trauma, grief & loss, workplace stress as well as career and life transition.
