Emma works as a Wild therapist, body psychotherapist, supervisor, facilitator, and author in Bristol. Inspired by therapy work and her long term Buddhist practice, Emma is interested in how therapy skills and age-old contemplative practices support and challenge us in facing the realities of climate change. By recognising that we’re part of ‘nature’ we can build active, reflective, resilient and creative communities. Her work has been shaped by being a development worker in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, a lecturer in International Development at the University of Bristol, and by practising meditation and Zazen and growing up as a child lost and found in nature. Emma is the author of three books and currently working on her fourth, a #metoo inspired collection of articles and conversations written by and for counsellors and psychotherapists. She is most absorbed when weeding her allotment, camping, studying Zen Master Dogen and hanging out with her nephew and nieces.
