About Us

IFM Therapeutic Counselling was founded in 2018

The idea was to insure that counselling could be made accessible to all regardless of financial status, culture or ability.  IFM was started in East London and expanded to cover London as a whole. IFM Therapeutic Counselling provides a safe and confidential space, where you can share and explore your thoughts, concerns and feelings.

In this space you can explore the issues that feel important to you.

We use various modalities such as person centred counselling, systemic, holistic and CBT to ensure that we can support people with any kind of process they may be experiencing. We work with compassion and understanding and our aim is to empower you the client to attain your own strengths and resources to enable you with tools of recovery and resilience.

Emily Lewis.

Hi, I’m Emily.

I have over 20 years’ experience of working within the field of therapy and mental health. I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and registered with the BACP and I adhere to strict ethical standards.

What made me decide to become a counsellor?

Growing up I experienced Domestic Violence within my family home and then through my own personal relationship.

When I was in my relationship at first I didn’t realise it was abusive. I was actually comfortable with the behaviour of my partner and he had me in a skewed reality of what was ‘normal’. I had no better experience to compare it to considering that I had come from one abusive situation to another.

I experienced a number of incidents in my relationship which slowly continued to break down my self-worth, my confidence and identity. I broke down emotionally and mentally until I finally found the strength to keep reporting to the police until I was finally heard and then referred to counselling.

The counselling I received was instrumental in my recovery and growth as an independent person.
