Welcome

My name is Emma Thomson.  I am an experienced, UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor. We all need more support and understanding at the moment and I am offering on-line therapy and ‘Walk & talk’ therapy in York and the surrounding areas during these difficult times.

My practice is called Grow Your Own Potential, because I believe we all have an amazing ability to learn, grow and become who we were truly meant to be.

Whether you are looking for help with anxiety, low self esteem, self defeating beliefs, eating issues, depression, bereavement, relationship/family issues, or anything else which may be stopping you becoming the person you were meant to be, you don’t need to let it stop you anymore.

Before becoming a Psychotherapist and Counsellor, I spent nearly 20 years in people development and education as a Trainer. I then retrained to became a Coach and Mentor working in Higher Education with students who had mental health challenges.

I particularly focus on working with those who suffer anxiety and have enormous respect for the courage it takes to live with this debilitating condition. Using Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy I believe that we can throw off the confines of anxiety and find long term solutions.

If you wanted to explore therapy with me, then I would be pleased to hear from you. You can contact me at growpotential4@gmail.com
