About Emma


Emma Rasalingam has twenty years experience as an educator and

psychotherapist. She has used her insights and theoretical knowledge to

develop a highly effective and infinitely adaptable programme of therapy.

Emma is passionate about the effects of arts-based therapy using story and

has devised and delivered complete programmes that reach families and teachers. She works privately and for The Priory, and also trains, co-ordinates and supervises other therapists.

Creative psychotherapy

in safe and comfortable surroundings.


I see individuals, couples, children and families for

private sessions. I offer family and relational therapy as a weekend retreat both in the South of England and in a panorama of the Gard region between Alès and Nîmes in France. 


Working with the unconscious through a more playful approach compared to traditional 'talking therapies' helps the client to be more at ease. Creative

psychotherapy uses the language of symbol and

metaphors to addressissues in a 'one-removed' way

and helps people think, feel and express themselves

in a less guarded way. As a result, revealing and healing can take place sooner and at a deep level.

'Depth Psychology' is the term that refers to the

underpinning concepts of my practice.
