Private Practice 

Emmy is able to see individuals or couples for existential therapy for monthly or one off sessions only, always online through her practice Dilemma Consultancy. She has a long waiting list, but Dilemma also offers a low cost clinic, where she supervises her doctoral students to offer existential therapy at £25 per weekly sessions after seeing you for an initial session herself. The consultancy can also take enquiries about lectures and workshops and information about fees and conditions can be found on the website. It is based at:
