About me

Hello,

You may have come across my profile looking to make some changes in your life perhaps? If so, maybe I can help you?

My name is Amy Taylor and I specialise in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, commonly known as CBT. It consists of looking at connections in our lives that are made with our thinking, moods and behaviour.

CBT is a rapidly expanding new source of therapy that encourages positive changes by learning new cognitive skills to tackle emotional and behavioural difficulties.

As your therapist, I can offer you myself, a warm, genuine, kind and easy person to talk to. For me, every relationship in therapy is really important in having the space and freedom to be yourself and is an important aspect of my work in building trust and openness.

Together, we will be able to understand what changed for you and work together in finding solutions. Exploring our experiences, good and bad, learning new skills can help you to continue building positive change in other areas your life in future during and after therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I initially started studying back in early 2016 and gained a level 2 and 3 in Person Centred Counselling. I loved studying and encouraging others, so I decided to continue through to level 4 & 5 and gained an FdSc Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy specialising Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

I currently have experience volunteering for Mental Health charities such as Coventry and Warwickshire Mind and work out in the community for Age UK Coventry and Warwickshire (AUKCW).

In addition, I am also am part of an AUKCW pilot scheme working in local GP Surgeries to provide counselling to individuals age 18+ offering counselling in a variety of environments including homes, GP Surgeries and Offices.

I work specifically with many depression and anxiety related issues.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
