Emotions are what tell us we’re alive. Are you feeling yours?

What if you don’t remember who you are and what you’re supposed to feel?

My mission and purpose is to provide counselling and life coaching to shine a light on this incongruence; this reality gap, between who you truly are and how you want to live your life, and how you’re perceived by the world.

I want everyone to be able to access the kind of inner peace that comes from knowing they’re OK, exactly as they are right now.

Emma Brooke Gilding, by Love Luella Photography

Hi! I’m Emma.

I provide counselling and life coaching for beautiful, intelligent and compassionate people like you, who have lost themselves along the way somewhere and aren’t entirely sure how to get themselves back again. When you work with me, I help guide you where you want to go, whether that’s from

overwhelm and emotional numbness to self-assured and guilt-free

or something else – knowing what you want, what you need and how you can make yourself and those you love feel fulfilled and complete without the guilt.


I’m an uncommon mix of

logic, practicality, positive-thinking and intuition.

A yogi on a mission to teach people the freedom from people-pleasing. I 100% believe that the most important thing we can do for our well-being is to

act consciously in accordance with our needs

and give ourselves permission to actually feel our feelings;

good, bad or indifferent;

accepting ourselves, including our feelings, is the only way to truly be comfortable in our own skin (a lesson I learnt the hard way!).

I intuitively identify your truth,

challenging beliefs and empowering you to feel again.

Remember that? Actually feeling something? My journey went in to overdrive when I overcame depression and an eating disorder in my early twenties. It also inspired me to complete my Yoga Teacher Training and Advanced Counselling Diploma.

My compassion, therapeutic experience and yogic philosophy will reconnect you back to you in no time.

If you know there must be a better way to feel fulfilled and content than trying to juggle everyone’s needs except your own, then we REALLY need to talk.

Don’t let anyone tell you the ‘best’ way

There are lots of people out there who give you advice. I am one of those people. I'm doing it right now. I recognise the irony of this. Nevertheless, I'm asking you to hear me out, then make sure that whenever you're listening to anyone, you check in with yourself,...

So you've been reading all about this vulnerability lark, or you've watched Brene Brown's TED talk, and it seems really logical from the outside, but the reality is, there are certain people you just can't open up to. There are certain people you can be yourself...

What is counselling and do you need it?

It was brought to my attention recently that, whilst counselling and therapy has gained a lot of ground over the past few years, many of us still recognise the taboo around mental health and really have no idea what therapy involves, or whether we would benefit from...
