Emily Burton - MSc, UKCP (reg), MBACP
I’m Emily, a UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist offering private one-to-one psychotherapy and counselling in Central and South London. I'm currently offering sessions both in person and online via Zoom, Skype and WhatsApp Video.
Counselling and psychotherapy can be helpful whether you’re struggling with something specific, or just feeling generally low, overwhelmed or stuck. It offers you a place to slow down, reflect and explore new perspectives and possibilities. Perhaps you want things to be different in some way, or feel that some focused time to explore and better understand your thoughts and feelings might be helpful.
Alongside my therapy practice I have over ten years corporate experience and am particularly interested in supporting you to manage any feelings of stress and anxiety in relation to your work.
My aim is to encourage an open and exploratory dialogue, through which we can arrive at useful insights collaboratively. I will be alongside you in the conversation, rather than being a ‘blank screen’ or neutral observer.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
