Emily Macgregor

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
M.A., R.P. (Q)

I believe that each of us has a unique personality and goals that can become muddled by the troubles of life. It can be difficult to know how to move forward when our minds and bodies are telling us that something is wrong.

My therapy approach draws on different methods, and is a collaborative effort between client and therapist. I believe in ‘pulling back the curtain’ and finding out what is really going on behind the label of diagnosis. To do this, I draw on each client’s specific background and needs in order to create a therapy approach that best serves them. I am passionate about helping clients build resilience and mindfulness, and to thrive as they move forward in life.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology, as well as a Master’s degree in Experimental Psychology. I have a blended experience of both clinical practice and research. Clinically, I have worked with teenagers and adults with trauma experiences, depression, anxiety, and autism. I also previously worked at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, where I worked with individuals with depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, and autism, through assessments and brain mapping.

More Than Just My Work:
