Amazing help in every way

Emma is extremely pleasant and professional. She is very patient and is able to assess when I needed some time to get things off my chest before getting down to work in CBT. My request for urgent help was answered immediately which was a great relief in a time of need. I was amazed how easy it was talking to her and would have no hesitation in returning to Emma as and when the need arose, or to recommend her to someone else.

I found Emma extremely professional and easy to talk to. It's not easy divulging how you're feeling to anyone, let alone a stranger. She immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease. I would recommend Emma to anyone who is in need of support from the challenges that life throws at us.

I was referred to Miss Emma Griffiths as I suffer with depression and anxiety. On first impressions, she was very friendly, which allowed me to relax. She is very professional, and whilst under her care, I never felt intimidated, I was able to talk to her without feeling silly and I understood how and why I felt like I did. She doesn't throw jargon at you, she explains clearly and concisely what terms mean, which also helped with the techniques that we practiced. I continue to practice the techniques today, and they still help me. Thank you Emma.
