About Emma Mathews Therapy...

I am a psychotherapist and have previously worked as a specialist midwife in perinatal mental health. I have completed a BSc in reproductive and sexual health, a postgraduate diploma in psychosexual therapy, a Relate certificate in relationship therapy, a postgraduate diploma in cognitive behavioural therapy and EMDR Europe Accredited training in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. I worked for Relate as a psychosexual and relationship therapist for a number of years.

I have completed an MSc in psychological trauma, my interest in this area being influenced by my work both as a psychosexual therapist and midwife. My MSc dissertation was in the area of childbirth trauma

(see research abstract). My training as a CBT therapist and EMDR therapist enables me to provide evidence based, recommended treatments for PTSD. As part of my work as a specialist midwife, I offered assessment and treatment for women who developed PTSD as a result of childbirth.     



I’m currently employed as a psychosexual therapist for the NHS, offering treatments for couples and individuals with sexual difficulties.  My private practice offers psychosexual and relationship therapy, CBT and EMDR. I also offer treatment for sexually compulsive and addictive behaviours.
