My name is Emily Pitman and I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor working in private practice in Wellington, Somerset.
Being an Integrative Therapist enables me to 'tailor' the sessions to support your wants, expectations and needs. I specialise in Relationship Issues, Anxiety and Depression. The emotions that you maybe experiencing at this time can leave you feeling lost, confused and helpless within your own being. The service I provide is for individuals who are seeking a kind, confidential and supportive therapeutic relationship. Together we can build and establish your foundations and begin to understand and accept those events that have brought you to this page.
Sessions last for 50 minutes with the option of being weekly or fortnightly. I provide an environment whereby clients feel confident, comfortable and trusting to talk openly and share and explore issues that may be troubling them. This presents clients with the invaluable tools to cope, develop skills, explore self development and create authenticity throughout the counselling process.
Depending on your presenting issues I am able to use a wide variety of techniques, for example, but not limited to: Person- Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA) Solution-Focused Therapy, Phsycodynamic Therapy, Existential Therapy, Couples Counselling, Sensate Focus Therapy (Intimacy related issues), Creative Therapy & Neuro-Lingustic Programming (NLP).
The first step is a free telephone assessment and consultation, so that I am able to understand your values, core beliefs, background information (the things that make you tick).
I feel that finding the right counsellor to suit your personality and characteristics is fundamental to help create the most impactful therapeutic environment. If I am not suitable, then I am able to refer and signpost to another suitable specialised practitioner.
My motto is; "My aim is to help "YOU" to become the best version of yourself"
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer them.

Working safely within ethical guidelines and boundaries is extremely important to me, I'm registered as a professional by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (B.A.C.P), and I adhere to this code of ethics.
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.
