Amy Taylor, FdSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP
You 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 for many people, where they are able to make positive changes by learning new cognitive skills to tackle emotional difficulties. The therapy may consist of working with Thoughts, Imagery, Beliefs and Cycles. Every person is different and unique and that means your therapy will be bespoke and personal to you.
As your therapist, I can enable the exploration of meanings and finding solutions. Together, we will be able to challenge those problems and help you to achieve a new perspective on situations. The skills can help you to continue building change in all areas of your life in future after therapy.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
