Emily Caddy – Relationship Counsellor

Emily is an experienced, specialist Relationship Counsellor, having trained with and worked for the National relationship counselling organisation, Relate, for 8 years.

It quickly became apparent that the benefit of delivering a relationship counselling service within the 3 strip clubs in Southampton could be hugely helpful for the dancers working there.  Emily is so passionate about helping to support women and their wellbeing, so is incredibly excited to be part of this amazing collaboration.
