At Thrive we can offer a warm and empathetic space to support you in working through your difficulties.  Emma introduces concepts from psychological and evolutionary science in easy-to-understand ways to help you make more sense of what’s going on for you and how you can approach it together, to help you feel empowered in overcoming your challenges during therapy and well into the future after therapy stops.
