Emma has been training with the Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology for 3 years. She has successfully completed her theoretical studies, specialising in psychosexual and relationship therapy. She is working with WETC to complete her hours required to register as a fully qualified therapist.

This allows the use of techniques from various modalities including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and classic psychosexual therapy interventions.
