My name is Emma Thomson.  I am an experienced, UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor based in central York and Haxby.

My practice is called Grow Your Own Potential, because I believe it’s never too late to change your life for the better and explore your own potential. We all have an amazing ability to learn, grow and become who we were meant to be.

I know it can be daunting taking the first step to break the patterns that have been holding us back, but it may turn out to be the most important thing that you ever do for yourself. We just need to plant the seed to see what we are truly capable of!

Whether you are looking for help with anxiety, low self esteem, self defeating beliefs, eating issues, depression, 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, I spent nearly 20 years as an Educator and Trainer. I then refocused to became a Coach and Mentor working in Higher Education with students who had mental health challenges.

I specialise in working with anxiety, using mindfulness and compassion focused therapy, to give long term solutions to manage this debilitating condition.

If you wanted to explore if I could be of help, then I would be pleased to hear from you. You can contact me at growpotential4@gmail.com
