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. In my practice, I help clients explore the root causes of anxieties, traumas, and issues in relationships. I’ve been honored to walk alongside clients as they resolve past and current difficulties, and move toward meaningful lives. I draw on each client’s specific background and needs in order to create a therapy approach that best serves them.

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.

Emily is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with a Master’s degree in counselling psychology, as well as a Master’s degree in psychiatry research.
