Emma Fogden Counsellor MBACP
I offer a warm welcome and a non-judgmental and supportive space where you can talk things through and together we can work out how you can move forward and feel better.
I offer online and phone counselling. I support clients facing a wide range of difficulties including relationship problems, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. I specialise in supporting men and women through pregnancy, baby loss, miscarriage, still birth and IVF.
Clients feed back that my warm and accepting style has helped them feel safe enough to express, explore and navigate difficult feeling and events and go on to make changes.
Sessions will be guided by what you want to achieve and taken at your pace. Whatever you share with me will be treated respectfully and in confidence. I am a registered member of the BACP (the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abide by their ethical codes.
I offer a free introductory telephone conversation. It is an opportunity to us to find out a bit about each and for you to decide if I am the right therapist for you. You will have the chance to tell me a little about yourself and what brings you to therapy now. There is not need to prepare. Starting counselling can feel a bit daunting – I will do my best to put you at your ease.
If we decide to work together, we will agree to work at the same time on the same day every week. Sessions last 50 minutes. Regular clients tend to come for a period that varies from six sessions to over a year. But we will be lead by what feels right to you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor with a first class BSc Hons degree. My training allows me to tailor my approach to each client, drawing on different techniques and approaches. I use my experience and training to support clients to feel empowered to make changes and live life more fully. However, I'm not the expert on your story: that expert is you.
I work in West London with a counselling service supporting clients with a wide range of difficulties. I also work for a specialist baby loss charity in central London. Personal experience ignited my interest in this area, and I have since supported men and women through miscarriage, still birth, infertility struggles, IVF, parenthood and the impact that these things can have on relationships.
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.

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).
