The Benefits of Mindfulness

Emma was instrumental in the set up and expansion of the provision of personality disorder and trauma services in the NHS. Today she continues to work as a senior DBT practitioner specialising in the treatment of complex trauma and personality disorders. She is also a clinical supervisor for DBT therapists and trainees.

‘I was really nervous about seeing a therapist as I didn’t actually know what was ‘wrong’ but Emma really understood me and I felt at ease during the assessment. She’s not just a ‘how does that make you feel’ therapist which I find patronising, she’s practical and genuine.’
‘I feel a lot more insightful to my problems and why I think the way that I do, and do the things that I do. Everything seems to finally make sense.’
‘My life has changed over the last year, I never believed I’d be any different but I now have friends and a job.’
‘I’ll always be grateful for you never giving up on me even when I gave up on myself’
