Bringing a modern twist to Traditional Counselling

Welcome to Emily Hughes Therapy, and thank you for visiting my page. If you are here it's probably because you are looking for some assistance with something that doesn't feel quite right at the moment. Sometimes we can't put our finger on exactly what's wrong, other times we know very clearly, but whichever it may be for you, something within you is feeling out of balance and has bought you here today, so welcome. 

How Can I Help? 

I have worked with clients in many different settings and environments, to enable them to work through past and present issues, ultimately finding more peace in every day life and becoming a happier healthier version of themselves. These issues range from anxiety, poor self esteem, trauma, OCD, eating disorders, depression; to name just a few. I have found over the years that Anxiety is the most common issue clients present with and it has therefore become my area of special interest and the topic I now specialise in. Anxiety and anxiety disorders are complex and can vary greatly from person to person, so my approach is always first and foremost to get to know my client's anxiety and as best as I can, begin to see their world, their way. This allows me to create the most effective therapy plan and sessions for each individual. I have dedicated my time to educating myself in the traditional, non traditional, modern and ancient ways we can improve our experience of anxiety and live a more peaceful life. It is the combination of psychology, philosophy and spirituality shared and discussed in my sessions that enable my clients to experience such change and growth.

Welcome to my Virtual Clinic!

Face to Face Clinic

If virtual sessions aren't for you and you would like to have an in-person session, then you can visit me at The Wellness Barn in Ingatestone, where I spend most of my time! Your first visit is your initial consultation where I welcome you into the calming atmosphere of 'The Wellness Barn' which comprises of my therapy room, a beautiful Yoga studio and our amazing treatment suite. During this session I will take lots of information from you and use this to create the perfectly blended treatment plan for us to work with in order to achieve your desired outcome.  After this session we will have weekly or bi-weekly sessions, lasting between 50 minutes and an hour. Our sessions will become your safe place; a time for you to off-load, explore, understand, learn and grow. I guide the sessions in a direction I think will be therapeutically helpful for you, however each sessions is client lead, meaning we work to your pace and in a way you feel the most comfortable.

Where to find me

If you are not visiting me via my Virtual Clinic, then you can find me at The Wellness Barn in Ingatestone, Essex. It is less than a ten minute drive from Ingatestone High street: From Ingatestone High Street, turn into Fryerning Lane and follow this road to the end. Then turn right into Mill Green Road and almost immediately right again down Back Lane. At the end of this road go left down Little Hyde Lane and we are at the end of this road on the right. Turn right into the farm, past the farm house and park up on the shingle drive way. To continue to keep The Wellness Barn safe, we do ask that you wait in the car park until the time of your session, when I will come out and meet you.
