Testimonials for Emma Forbes
OCD Therapy Specialist
‘After a big relapse of OCD last year with some accompanying depression, Emma gave me hope that there was a way out of how I was feeling. She is patient and kind, and created the safest space to air out my thoughts, without judgement. My sessions with Emma have by far been the most effective help for my OCD I’ve ever had. Together we worked through anxiety, past trauma, depressive thoughts-and I feel more in control than I have in a long time. I would recommend Emma to anyone !’
‘After well over a decade of inner struggle wondering what was wrong with me, giving myself a very hard time, feeling permanently anxious and finding day to day life exhausting, choosing Emma as my OCD therapist has been the best thing that could have happened to me. Emma’s has great kindness, perception, clarity of thought, intelligence and warmth and has given me new strength, opening my eyes to where my anxieties came from and shown me that I can be kind to myself because it’s ok to be me. She has helped me to spot those sly OCD symptoms, how they feel, how to identify them and how to treat them. I can now recognise them for what they are and move on which is a power I never had before.
I could not recommend Emma highly enough, she’s given me my life, my energy and my old self back.’

“If your’e reading this and thinking I can’t tell someone what’s in my head, you can. I was so pleased to find a therapist that understood me, didn’t think I was a danger or crazy but had this thing called ‘OCD’. Emma helped me get my life back on track”.

“I hold where I am today accountable to Emma’s CBT sessions where I was
able to share everything and overcome the OCD intrusive thoughts I was experiencing everyday.
Emma is truly warm and kind, I had total belief from the very start
that the patience and openness as well as the content of the sessions
were going to clear everything up, but I also found I was able to talk
about myself and have my mental health out in the open for the first
time. Emma was the one who helped me do that, I can’t thank her

“Emma was completely amazing in helping me. I have been suffering with anxiety for 10 yrs and came to her after reaching a point where I could no longer bear the way it was taking over and limiting my life. I have noticed a huge change in my anxiety and armed with supportive techniques and strategies to manage as I continue to build on and challenge my anxiety”
Sara – NHS Professional
“From my very first session with Emma I could tell I had just stepped into a space of no judgement, only kindness, clarity and warmth. For years I had struggled with anxiety and depression on my own, not knowing where to turn to. Working with Emma has shown me it is possible to both keep my anxiety, depression and obsessive thoughts in check, while still allowing myself to BE ME. I’ve learned so much with Emma and I look forward to each session. She listens to me, guides me, validates my feelings and provides me with tools so I can live my best life.
If you’re struggling and in need of help, I wholeheartedly recommend Emma as your OCD therapist. She is a professional with not only heaps of knowledge and experience, but so much heart and care.”
I held myself to impossibly high standards as a doctor, when I myself became unwell and needed support I struggled.
Your kindness, guidance and understanding have helped me build myself back up to being a better version of myself. I can’t thank you enough.
