About Emma Ashford
I aim to help you explore and understand the difficulties you are facing in your life and how they are affecting you in a calm, confidential and safe space. I will support you to identify your goals for therapy and make a plan towards achieving those goals. I aim to equip you with awareness alongside tools and coping techniques to overcome your current difficulties as well as prevent or manage similar difficulties from occurring in the future. I hope to help you find realistic and lasting relief from difficulties as soon as possible and many clients experience results within a short timescale.
I am passionate about helping people to raise their confidence and self-esteem, as this is often the foundation on which positive changes can be made to our lives. I take great professional pride and satisfaction in seeing individuals achieve positive results through therapy. I use my experience as a senior hypnotherapist and a counsellor and integrate this with my skills and knowledge in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), solution focussed therapy and coaching.
The therapy I offer is tailored to each individual client, and their need. We work together to achieve the goals agreed at the outset of the therapy during an initial assessment session. The only commitment I require from you is that you are motivated to achieve change.
I have experience of working with clients to achieve positive change with a wide range of issues, with specialism in addressing:
• Insomnia/sleep difficulties.
• Low self-esteem.
• Low mood.
As well as being the author and creator of ‘Quick Calm’ – an easy to use, portable stress management system that fits into everyday life, I have featured in Natural Health, Healthy and Profile magazines, as well as The Star and Sheffield Telegraph. I also run a number of workshops for other therapists and professionals as well as training sessions in areas such as stress management for companies such as NatWest.
Having spent the early part of my career supporting people with acute mental health issues as well as those with drug and alcohol dependency, my interest in the human mind and my own first-hand experience of the positive impact of therapy led me to setting up my practice.
Visit my website (www.steppingstonetherapy.co.uk) for more information about me and the issues I can work with.
If you’re not sure whether I may be able to help with your particular issues, please feel free to contact me. There is no obligation to book in for an assessment and should I not feel that I can assist you I will be happy to signpost you to a therapist or service which best meets your specific needs.
