Our Friendly Therapy Team

Emma Griffiths

BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, EMDR Therapist, Company Director

Bsc. Psych, PG Cert LIPsych, PG Dip CBT

The Psychotherapy Clinic is run by Emma Griffiths. Emma is a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and EMDR Therapist. Emma began her career in Psychology in 2008, when alongside studying her degree, she worked in a local NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. During her time in this service, Emma supported children aged 11-16 experiencing a range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.

 

Emma has specialist experience supporting people using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) since 2010. Emma for 7 years has worked with adults experiencing depression, anxiety and psychological trauma. The context where Emma worked, included the National Health Service (NHS), a West Midlands based charity and Independent Practice. Emma accrued over this 7-year period over 5,800 sessions of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. In addition to working as a Psychological Practitioner and Psychotherapist in the above services, Emma became a Senior Psychological Practitioner which involved the mentorship of Trainee Practitioners.

 

Emma completed all her training locally, attending the University of Wolverhampton and the University of Birmingham on two occasions. Emma valued learning and integrating CBT into her practice to support the people she would work with during and after her training. Following gaining her qualifications in CBT, Emma continued to work in the NHS for a time, before undertaking a locum position, in an inpatient unit with Veterans experiencing psychological injury after returning from war. Undertaking work in this environment, predominately working with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Depression and Anxiety, Emma decided to further specialize in trauma by completing Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) training. Emma has invested in EMDR equipment to allow the people she supports to gain the most from EMDR therapy, as both EMDR and CBT are used on a regular basis in her clinics.

 

In her own therapeutic practice, Emma places a real emphasis upon the therapeutic relationship as she recognises how important this is in creating a safe environment where people can come and open up about the difficulties they are experiencing. Emma endeavours to actively listen to you, understand your experience and collaboratively work with you. Emma at present undertakes no additional work, instead she devotes her full time to The Psychotherapy Clinic and the people she supports in her clinics.

Emma in her clinics supports self funded referrals, both within The Psychotherapy Clinic and over at Think Psychology in Birmingham. AXA PPP Healthcare registered, Emma accepts referrals from people registered with AXA PPP Healthcare. As a therapist Emma supports a Veteran charity, undertaking trauma work with Veterans, returning from war with psychological injury. In addition to this work, Emma has undertaken specialist work with Prison Officers, Police Officers, GPs and other members of our valued services.
