Emma Willmer : Gestalt Psychotherapist in Manchester
Emma Wilmer: Registered Gestalt Therapist in Manchester

I work as a therapist because I am interested in learning about others, helping them understand the past and deal better with the present and future. As a therapist I accompany and direct people while they learn more about how they came to be in their present situation, what they are doing to keep things that way and how they can act differently to make real and lasting changes.

For me therapy is about facilitating others' learning and growth. In therapy we might make changes or find a way to accept what we cannot change. Therapy work, as both a client or therapist, can be painful, difficult or exciting but is always an engaging, unpredictable and inspiring experience!

I am British born but of Anglo-Indian heritage; this gives me a special interest in how, as individuals, we are influenced by social and cultural forces as well as our more immediate family. I have a background in theatre and movement work, and an ongoing practice of meditation and Yoga. I am also at the early stages of post-graduate study using philosophy to examine psychological ideas.

  • I am a part-time lecturer at the University of Salford and a psychotherapist in private practice and at Manchester University Counselling Service (see www.manchester.ac.uk).
  • I am fully qualified and registered with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and offer weekly psychotherapy / counselling to individuals on both a long-term and short-term basis.
  • I have undertaken training in goal-oriented work using CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) with Salford Cognitive Therapy Centre (See www.salfordcognitivetherapy.com).
  • I also prepare psychological mitigation reports for legal purposes in conjunction with solicitors and their clients in legal process and have worked organisationally as a psychological consultant in London and Manchester with Sheppard Robson Architectural firm (see www.sheppardrobson.com).
  • I have worked for over 10 years as a therapist both privately and in the NHS.
  • I work from home, 15 minutes south of Manchester city centre. The house is near several major bus routes and is accessible to the disabled; parking is also readily available.
  • I am also employed by the Kirklees NHS and Salford NHS, working psychologically with survivors of torture and sufferers of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
