- About Emma Davis - CBT & Hypnotherapy - A bespoke treatment that works..
Hi and welcome to my profile. I work in and around central London as well as offering home, office and Skype appointments. Below you will find out more about the combined approach I use and how it may help you.
I am a highly experienced therapist using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Hypnotherapy, Counselling, Mindfulness and Coaching to create a goal oriented, dynamic, interactive approach to helping clients achieve their aims. My individually tailored programs enable clients to experience rapid, positive changes, reducing the number of overall visits required.
My speciality is in Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) which sits under the umbrella of CBT. The benefit of REBT is that it enables me to quickly identify deeply held beliefs that are maintaining negative and unhelpful thinking and behaviors. If deeply held negative beliefs are not addressed, every time someone is in a ‘trigger situation’ they are likely to relapse into old habits, patterns of thinking and behavior.
It is our core beliefs, often things we are completely unaware of, that influence the way we think about situations, ourselves and others. Core beliefs are often at the heart of repeated problems and cycles. Often, my clients say, "I know what I am doing and just don’t understand why I keep repeating the same thing, over and over again!". The ’key’ to change is identifying the (often hidden) unhelpful belief that is holding you back, and creating a new one that works and supports you. Together, we explore your beliefs and thoughts to create healthier, more positive ways of thinking, believing and behaving, which will enable you to make the changes you are looking for.
What happens in a session?
After discussing the issues and challenges you wish to address in some depth and identifying your core beliefs, with your permission I then use the relaxation technique of hypnosis to help embed new ways of thinking at a deep, unconscious level. Clients find that this enables the changes to take place faster with far reaching and long lasting effects.
The most important element of my approach is that, by the end of your treatment, you will have the knowledge to be able to apply these techniques to all others areas of your life. My aim is to empower you and give you tools that will last a lifetime.
"It’s 5 stars all the way from me....I stopped smoking 10 weeks ago with the help of Emma and Hypnosis....Emma was straight talking, asked loads of questions and got me really thinking about how, why and when I smoked - the hypnotherpy session was geared specifically to me - so felt very personnal.....Emma also records the session, which I have on iplayer....just incase I wobble - but I haven’t needed it yet....I know it’s mad, but I know I will never smoke again...." Catherine, London
“I found Emma’s whole approach completely liberating. I felt totally safe in her hands and, after just three sessions, I felt a huge shift for the better in just about every aspect of my life. A year on and I’m still reaping the benefits of the work I did with her, and so are my family!” SB, London
"i always had a fear about public speaking,even having to stand up and thank my staff at our xmas party would make me very anxious,as the owner of a florists i would avoid speaking to a group as a whole,instead communicating on a one to one basis.i was asked to make a speech at a best friends wedding,my worst nightmare,i turned to emma for help with 2 weeks to go before the big day i had my first session,it was clear and precise,i was not sure if i would be so susceptible to hypnotherapy,but i took to it straight away,i came away feeling relaxed and confident of the task ahead. i listened to a tape that was composed during the session in-between appointments as well as on the day of the wedding. it was of immense benifit as a measure of how well it went,i later went on to perform stand up comedy, it was an interest of mine for years but i never dreamed of having the confidence of getting up on stage." Aeneas, London
"When I met Emma I was trying to cope with a lot of complex issues that made me feel anxious and overwhelmed, this in turn caused me great distress. I was frought with low self- esteem and negative thoughts.I soon learned from Emma that I was stuck in the past and weighting myself down with unnessasary thoughts that were preventing me from moving beyond my pain, anxiousness and heartache. Emmma has simply shown me the way to adopt skills to rid myself of negative destructive thought patterns, I feel empowered and in control of my thoughts having learned strategies to cope when im overwhelmed and lost in my own head." Tuesday, London
"I had six months of Cognitive Hypnotherapy with Emma Davis in 2011. I found her to be directive and positive. She was focused on empowering me to find solutions to the problems I was facing. During the sessions Emma employed a variety of techniques, specifically to target each individual issue. I utilise these practices in my daily life today and have recommended her to several friends." Simone, London
"I came to Emma suffering with what I can only describe as the after-effects and depression from an abortion. I had been recommended to Emma by my cousin, who had successfully received fertility support with her, and who suggested they she may be able to help me. When I first met Emma I knew immediately she was someone I would be able to be totally honest and open with. We started at the beginning and I told her the details of my situation, the subsequent relationship break-up and the agony that I currently found myself in – revolving mainly around feelings of guilt and feeling I had made utterly the wrong decision and had ruined my life. Week by week, Emma gradually helped me to turn my life around. The sessions weren’t often easy, but I feel Emma’s unique holistic approach of combining discussion with bodywork and also looking at diet and lifestyle was simply the most brilliantly effective way of pulling me out of such a wretched time in my life. Now my life is back on course again and I am able to look back with much greater perspective. I couldn’t recommend Emma highly enough – she created an absolute oasis of calm and support at a very difficult time in my life, and to anyone who ever found themselves in a similar circumstance, this would be the first place I would tell them to go." Antonia, London
"When I discovered I was pregnant in January, I was shocked, horrified and utterly bamboozled. I’d only come off the Pill the month before and had assumed it would take months to conceive. I’d only just got married; I wasn’t ready. I didn’t want to be pregnant yet. Such shock and horror was compounded all the more by the guilt this reaction caused. Why did this news impact so negatively on me? Why did I not feel happy and excited like I was supposed to, like other women? After all, I ’wanted’ it; I had married the man of my dreams, we wanted a family together, I’d come off the Pill. So what was the problem? I felt disgusted with myself, isolated and completely at a loss. Then the depression kicked in good and proper. I’ve never been prone to depression, but I know what it means when you can’t face getting out of bed and all you can manage of a day is to walk around feeling nihilistic and empty. Not great when you’re self-employed and have crucial deadlines to meet. Then I was recommended Emma. She kindly squeezed me in to her busy schedule after my tearful phone call at late notice and there began a series of sessions of counselling and massage, which became the lifeline of my early pregnancy. Don’t get me wrong, I had plenty of support at home. My husband was wonderful, but at the same time he found my reaction hard to deal with as he understandably felt like I was rejecting a part of him, so having Emma’s impartial ear and voice of expertise was invaluable. She helped me realise that what I was going through was not that unusual, that I was not alone, but, most importantly, that there is no ’supposed to’ about pregnancy and the feelings that come with it. For instance, I thought that even though I’d never been one of those women who dream of motherhood from a young age, that when it came to it some latent maternal instinct would kick in and I would feel all those happy natural things that others seemed to. I thought that when it happened I was supposed to feel lucky and happy. Instead I felt cheated by the lack of such emotions, not to mention deeply guilty towards my friends who were having difficulty conceiving. But as Emma helped me see, everyone’s experience is different and many women suffer from antenatal depression... you just don’t hear about it that much, at least not as much as post-natal depression. So, Emma helped me accept my feelings, to go with them and explore everything surrounding them. She helped me see that not only was my body awash with alien hormones, but also very gently helped me look inside myself to explore any issues or fears I might have about motherhood. Issues. I am now about two weeks away from giving birth and feeling like a completely different person. I’m still trepidatious about motherhood, but only in so far as I have no idea what to expect, but crucially I am looking forward to the experience and am ready to embrace it and my baby with delight and serenity."

Emma really helped me take a good long look at myself and my attitude to life that had left me stuck in a world of depression, anxiety, panic attacks, moaning, negativity, low self-esteem etc. The treatment is hard work and you have to put the effort in outside of the session too so don’t think you will get an easy ride here. And it’s exactly for that reason that things began to change for the better for me. For once I was told the truth - not airy fairy stuff that I got with other therapists. Emma wants you to get better - so she will be as honset and direct with you as she can be and it helped me massively. If you want to get better then you have come to the right place.

I first contacted Emma 3 months ago with the aim to undergo CBT to help my insomnia and fear of travelling on the tube. Not being able to sleep more than a few hours a night was something I had come to terms with. As my dad suffered with the same issue, I thought it was "in my genes". I felt the same about my tube fear. For years I avoided travelling on the tube and even after 4 lots of separate hypnotherapy sessions, nothing helped. I would have to plan my bus routes around London, usually arriving late for meetings and important events. I frequently felt frustrated with myself and anxious. I am so pleased I found Emma! She offered a calm and caring environment to work through my issues and help untangle my irrational thoughts. I realised that my insomnia and fear of travelling on the tube were my surface issues and that the underlying anxiety had to be dealt with. It was sometimes emotional and hard work but completely worth it. I have been given the tools to cope with whatever life throws at me and I feel a lot stronger and calmer as a result. I’ve been able to use these tools to not only get a more restful night’s sleep and to travel on the tube (I’ve used a tube everyday for the last 2 weeks now!), but within a number of daily events (helping me speak up more at work, try new things, become more positive when dealt with a difficult situation). I can’t thank Emma enough and just wish I came to her sooner!

Working with Emma has changed my life. I mean this in every sense of the word. I came to Emma at a very dark time in my life. I had low self-esteem issues, lacked confidence, viewed the world negatively and was suffering from increasing anxiety and panic attacks. I was initially reluctant to work with a therapist but went because my sister had booked my initial session with Emma. I am sure Emma will testify that I was a difficult client in the first few weeks. I was closed, didnt want to share things with her and was weary of the value I would get out of the sessions. But Emma persisted and challenged me to think differently about my life. everything she said about me was accurate, I was amazed at how she had sussed me out after only a few sessions. That got my attention and I knew there and then I would benefit from working with her on my mental issues. It has been 6 months since I started with her, and I can say that my outlook on life has changed for the better thanks to Emma’s help. I now am able to handle difficult situations which previously would cause me much anxiety. I have a more positive outlook on life and as a result things are looking up for me. I dont think I could have got to this place mentally on my own. I owe more than the cost of a session to Emma, she truly changed my life and I am grateful to her for that. I would strongly recommend anyone who reads this and relates to the issues I was going through to reach out to Emma. You will not regret it and she will change your perspective on life!

I have been suffering from depression in various forms over the past 38 years. Emma gave me new angles to deal with my negative thoughts, that have been very beneficial. What I particularly liked about Emma was her firm approach and genuine interest and concern in her patient.
--David, London, March 27 2013
I arranged a session with Emma following a severe bout of insomnia at Christmas - before then sleeplessness is something I had just accepted was a part of my life. Her approach was challenging, direct, pragmatic and logical. Each session helped unpick many of the reasons and negative thoughts that were sustaining the insomnia, some of these which were also spilling over to other areas of my life. With her guidance, we worked through these and I’ve since barely suffered from insomnia or the associated anxiety. I would wholeheartedly recommend her approach.

I have made multiple attempts at articulating the enormously positive impact working with Emma has had on me - for the simple reason that there are just so many. I originally contacted Emma when I was struggling to sleep. Having sought the advice of my GP (who just prescribed sleeping tablets)I knew that to succeed in the career I loved and get out of the vicious cycle I was in would require more than just a short term fix, it required a mindshift. So I approached Emma with what was a pretty challenging timescale (I started a new job in 4 weeks)and pretty high expectations of both myself and the solutions she might offer. I went in looking for a solution to an immediate and obvious ’surface’ problem but Emma took the time to explore the root of the issue, the potential drivers of it, my beliefs and relationship with myself and how and what triggered my responses. Her style is very bespoke, flexible and open and centred on what I wanted to achieve but equally guided and challenged. In 5 sessions I have learnt techniques and strategies for things I didnt realise where inhbiting me but feel liberated by the new thinking that has come with the action. I 100% recommend Emma and as cliched as it is, as I said to her at our last session ’honestly this has changed my life’
--Alison, LONDON, November 11 2012
When I contacted Emma I was feeling as though I had no control over my life. Single mum, working as a manager in recruitment and a host of other issues my life was a pressure pot and I was panicking daily. Emma through CBT and Hypnotherapy gave me the tools to be positive about my lfe. In the sessions we worked on particular issues and the Hypnotherapy recordings directly dealt with the triggers that were happening at the time. Emma gives you the feeling that you can conquer every challenge that may come your way but at the same time (from someone who finds it difficult) it is OK to ask for help. Self-hypnosis empowered me and for that tool alone I am eternally thankful.
--Mandy, London, June 24 2012
A member of my family recommended Emma after I suffered a stroke at the end of 2011. I found her visits to my home in North London were very therapeutic. I had suffered a considerable shock and I needed to deal with my new circumstances. State of mind was crucial to this, and my conversations with Emma helped me a lot. She was always very rational, and our conversations were the most valuable part of the treatment. Emma did not press me to accept any form of treatment with which I was uncomfortable and was always very sensitive and sympathetic to my feelings. I feel that my current improved state of mind is due mainly to her treatment.

Emma worked with me during the initial stages of my diagnosis for breast cancer and throughout the treatment and after. I found that her combined approach of CBT and hypnotherapy enabled me to look at the overall picture in a positive way. I initially experienced high levels of anxiety and panic which affected my thinking, sleep and general behavior patterns. Being able to talk through my worries and eliminate unnecessary fears was invaluable. I found the specifically tailored hypnotherapy recordings very effective. I was able to use these in between each treatment and my anxiety diminished. I feel that working with Emma made a huge difference in how I experienced my treatment. I was calm clear headed, able to see the positives and not the negatives. I found that despite the seriousness of the prognosis, Emma’s approach which was straight forward but warm gave me the strength to deal with the months ahead.
