"Stress, depression and many other issues are often rooted in suppressed emotional memories and pain.
Emotional Therapy helps clients explore these sources in a safe, positive supportive environment."

how can I help?

What is Emotional Therapy?

Phillippa explains in this short video what emotional therapy is, and how it can help.

Sometimes, just taking the first step can be a huge relief. Feelings are part of us, and giving them the respect they deserve enhances our self worth. By creating a safe environment in which to experience, express and validate our stored (suppressed) emotions, we are able to free up untold energy that has been tied up in holding them down.

The freedom and relief we feel is incredible and extremely liberating. Most importantly, we can now make conscious decisions to shape our life rather than allowing emotional turmoil to rule it.

Whilst exploring our present situation we will make connections with early experiences – it is within this understanding of yourself that you will feel empowered to make any necessary changes to your life. When past behaviour patterns which operate unconsciously are understood and released, the opportunity is there to experience freedom from the past and become our own master.

If we feel hurt or wounded, it makes sense that these wounds need protecting, and this protection forms a barrier around us. By gently working through and releasing these barriers it enables us to realize our true potential and to become who we truly are – our true selves.

Physical effects and residual energy of painful experiences can remain in the body as blockages. The integrated therapies I offer can help to remove these blockages and free us from distress, confusion and repeated or unwanted behaviour patterns.

During the process of self exploration, positive strengths are often uncovered – this can lead to greater self confidence.

free initial consultation

As the choice of a therapist is vital, I offer an initial free consultation. The focus is on meeting each other, answering any questions, gathering relevant information and identifying goals and aims.

It is an opportunity for you to decide if what I offer will be of benefit to you.

The numbers and lengths of sessions will vary according to the client's needs and the depth of the problem. Sessions are reviewed regularly and joint decisions are made concerning future work.

" Every now and again, I catch myself thinking 'now what would Philippa ask me here?' She has given me the strength, self-belief and the ability to find my own inner confidence. Philippa's wise words have never left me even now my sessions have ended. I have so much to thank her for. "
