Emily Newman BSc (Hons) MBACP (Accred.)
There are times when we all need extra support to cope with life’s inevitable challenges which can present themselves in many different ways. My role is to support you in finding your own way forward in coping with these challenges and to help you make sense of any thoughts or feelings that you wish to share, or which may emerge during our work together. I have over 10 years experience as a counsellor supporting adults and young people with varying emotional difficulties in a wide range of settings.
I work in an integrative way, which means that my practice is influenced by the traditions of humanistic, psychodynamic and existential therapies; this enables me to tailor my approach to suit your individual needs, whilst respecting your own pace and depth of the counselling process. The core aspect of all of my work is to build a supportive and trusting relationship, and to offer a confidential, compassionate and non-judgemental space where you feel comfortable in exploring any thoughts or feelings that may be difficult to share with others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I feel passionately about my role as a counsellor and have enjoyed working in many different settings. These include mental health charities, carers’ organisations, the NHS and the education sector. I have extensive experience of supporting children, young people and parents/carers having managed a school counselling service and previously taught children and young people with learning difficulties.
Training and Qualifications:
I hold professional insurance and am a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), member of the BACP Children & Young People Division and the Private Practice Division. I work in accordance with the BACP Code of Ethics, which includes engaging in regular supervision and further training to develop my counselling practice.

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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£45 per session (50 min)
My private practice operates in both central Melksham and the Larkhall area of Bath. I also offer counselling by telephone and online. Each session lasts for 50 minutes and our work together can be limited or open ended; this will be discussed in the initial assessment session and be guided by you.
It is important that you work with someone who is right for you, and who you feel able to trust and to connect with. If you would like to know more about how and when I work, then please do not hesitate to get in touch by telephone or e-mail.
