Knowing yourself
is the beginning of all Wisdom
– Aristotle

Choosing a Psychologist can be a daunting task, but a very important part of the therapeutic process. The more you know about a Psychologist and how they work, the more informed you are to make a decision about who is the right fit for you.

Introducing Dr. Emma Campbell

Emma’s approach to life is straightforward, be true to yourself and others! Being transparent leaves little room for confusion, and people always know where they stand with someone like Emma. Emma uses this approach in her own life and when counselling her patients. Emma may not be one to sugar-coat what she says, but she will provide an environment that is safe and warm and help you to open up and discuss feelings that you may never have thought you had the strength to discuss.

Psychological Approach

When offering counselling and psychological treatment, Emma works from a range of psychological approaches and tailors these to meet individual needs. Emma draws from contemporary psychological research to provide an holistic framework for understanding the mind, body, and relationships. Emma supports people to build from their own resources to make life and relationship changes. She loves working with techniques drawn from Eastern philosophies such as mindfulness and interventions drawn from positive psychology research. Emma also uses Psychodynamic therapy to explore the influence of the past on present behaviour and build on a patient’s ability to self- reflect. This type of therapy assists in examining unresolved conflicts and patterns of behaviour that have arisen due to past dysfunctional relationships.

Emma prides herself on her ability to self-reflect, seeking professional supervision and engaging in professional development to constantly improve her therapeutic skills.
