Welcome to Essential Self, a mental health and wellbeing service dedicated to helping people function at their best.

“Emma is a person of absolute integrity… Her sensitivity, understanding and humour ensured that the coaching sessions were highly productive and I left feeling that I had benefited immensely from her approach”


“Emma really helped me get on the right track. I knew I wanted to make some changes but I wasn’t sure what. Emma helped me focus on what it was I really wanted and showed me ways I could pursue it. Highly recommended.”


“I had the virus in the very early days of lockdown; instead of trying to struggle through I listened to that “inner wisdom” and let my body rest and recover……. Quite a contrast to how I would have reacted prior to the sessions with you”


“I highly recommend Emma’s coaching to anyone, as it really helped me through a pressured time in my life. I am a working mum who has a complex home life and became very overwhelmed with day to day stuff. Emma helped me work through the issues practically and really empathised so I felt very supported. I still use the strategies now and feel I can get back some focus, strength and control to deal with stressful times.”


Essential Self specialises in providing a common sense approach to mental health, and offers targeted one-to-one support in 3 main areas: Wellbeing at Work, Coaching for Women and Mental Health Coaching.

Ultimately, the aim is to help individuals of all ages maximise their personal and professional potential by dealing with issues in a straightforward, pragmatic and focused way.
