About me

Hello, my name is Emma Furr and I am an experienced and qualified BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist. My private practice is Star Therapy based in the Richmond and Twickenham area.

Emma currently provides therapy sessions via video and over the telephone from her base in Richmond-upon-Thames. Helping you to stay well, calm and connected at a difficult time.

During these unsettling and extremely challenging times, it is so important to reach out and ask for help. Telephone or video sessions provide you with understanding, support, calm, and a safe space to explore your anxieties.

Covid is causing chaos and uncertainty, so awareness and prevention of the mental health impact of the Covid virus is key for emotional wellbeing to protect against fear through this period of change. We need to look after ourselves and each other. If you are struggling with anxiety surrounding the coronavirus, or you were struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, or anything else prior to the coronavirus there is always some way of getting help, even when everything seems so up-in-the-air.

Counselling and psychotherapy can provide a safe, confidential, supportive space for you to bring any problems you are having and explore difficult thoughts and feelings. You might seek counselling and psychotherapy because you are struggling to cope, feeling dissatisfied with your life, having problems with relationships, trying to process a loss or a change, or finding it difficult to make a big decision. You might want to make sense of things that have happened in the past, think about your future, to feel calm and centred or just get some extra support to help you through a tough time.

It can sometimes be challenging to find the right counsellor and psychotherapist, but I will tell you a little bit about how I work and what I believe in, and then if you would like a telephone chat before you decide to book to see me, you are very welcome.

I believe that a good relationship between therapist and client has a big impact on the effectiveness of therapy, so the initial consultation is to see if working together feels right for both of us. This gives you a chance to find out more about how I work and whether I am the right fit for you, and me a chance to get a sense of what you are looking for from counselling and whether I can support you with that.

As an integratively trained psychotherapist I seek to put the individual client first and foremost, whilst also being able to draw on a number of different approaches, including psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and relational. I use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) whenever it is appropriate.

I have worked with a broad range of issues, most recently with Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust offering brief psychodynamic therapy. I have also worked with Kingston Women's Centre, for three years, offering long term integrative psychotherapy, and The Mulberry Centre offering individual counselling to patients, their carers, and those bereaved through cancer. I am an Anxiety UK approved therapist trained to work with anxiety disorders, and also provide individual specialist support for university students.

I work with individuals, aged 16 and over, and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. My special interest and ongoing study is on the subject of the mind-body connection and treating the client holistically.

I am a recognised AXA PPP Healthcare practitioner and registered with the Healthcode Private Practice Register. I have professional indemnity insurance and am registered with ICO.
