Dr Emma Punter
I provide one to one therapy to adults and adolescents in Chelsea and the City of London. Through my work I support individuals to develop a better and more in-depth understanding of their emotions and behaviours. I help individuals to develop strategies to manage difficult or uncomfortable feelings and to change undesirable patterns of behaviour. I work collaboratively, supporting individuals in working towards a life that feels authentic, fulfilling and meaningful.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a counselling psychologist I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural, Psychodynamic and Person-Centred therapies. I have additionally completed training in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness and compassion focused therapy (CFT).
I have over 6 years' experience of working with individuals in the NHS and privately. My theoretical approach is predominantly integrative, meaning I draw on a range of theories and techniques to tailor therapy to best suit the person's needs.

Registered / Accredited

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
