About Emma Jane

 

It is really hard to write a page about yourself. I’ve sat here for quite a while, fingers poised over the keyboard, thinking about how to describe me, Emma Jane, who I am, my life and everything in between.

Firstly I am a mother to two beautiful daughters that fill my life with fun, chatter, vibrancy and surprises. 

I am privileged to work for the NHS supporting for women with anxiety, depression, birth trauma or the loss of a baby. 

I’m a Counsellor, CBT and Mindfulness Practitioner. I’m also a trained doula and postnatal doula.

I had my first daughter at only 22 and sadly had a very traumatic birth. My birth experience and postnatal care resulted in perinatal PTSD. 

My journey of nurturing my own life, healing from PTSD, raising my daughters, personal growth and finding inner peace as well as working for many years caring for women and families has given me gifts that I can use support others.

 I founded Unfold Your Wings a support website for Birth Trauma and PTSD to offer hope, and support healing,

I also run the Perinatal Mental Health Network facebook discussion group, plus many other projects. In 2018 I was privileged to winner a Thrive Mental Health Award for my work around Birth Trauma.

Im quirky, creative, inquisitive, and always eager to learn. I don’t mind being different in fact never seek to follow the crowd. I’m also passionate and sometimes a little emotional. I love butterflies, flowers and all things nature. I like nothing more than taking my camera to wonderful and interesting places and capturing life with all its magic.

What I do know is that life takes you down a path that may lead to a place you never dreamed of, there is always so much to learn, so much you can get involved in and lots to enjoy. On the road of life you will hit bumps and sometimes they seem like mountains, but they seek to teach us about ourselves and others.

Sometimes things happen that change us forever, but even the bad can be used for good. I believe that sometimes things happen when we least expect them, and that surprise is part of the fabric of life too.

We do not always know what awaits us in the rich tapestry of life, but when we are true to who we are, have companions that enrich our life and we believe in ourselves, we can achieve anything. I hope I can inspire you to nurture your life, to see your inner strength and worth, knowing you can overcome even the hardest of times, and grow to be uniquely YOU.

So I hope you enjoy my ramblings, experiences and thoughts, one thing I promise they are always from my heart. Take a look too at my creative writing, once upon a time.

So there you have it! I know that life is a journey, that it can test us to the very edge of our endurance, but it can also give us moments of pure bliss and magic.

May you believe in yourself, your power to make a difference in this world, and may these words hold true for you too;
