Emma Rowlands BA MA MBACP
Have you had experience of therapy before which was partly helpful but not enough? I offer an approach which is informed by and builds on the pioneering work of the early names in this field and which also incorporates new and emerging forms of therapy. My approach is based not on management of symptoms but on deep and lasting recovery.
Whatever you're struggling with, I invite you to make an appointment with me to explore your situation further. I work with a wide range of issues including: trauma, addictions, stress, depression, bereavement, phobias, relationship problems, and illness, including illness not responding to medical interventions.
I work as an integrative counsellor / therapist. This means that rather than offering a one-size-fits-all approach, I am able to draw on a number of frameworks (including psychodynamic, relational, body-orientated and trauma and recovery informed). I can therefore tailor the therapy to fit your needs, time-scale and personality. I have a particular interest in trauma, addictions, and spirituality, although I work with all areas.
Prior and subsequent to training in integrative counselling / psychotherapy at the Minster Centre, London, I trained in a number of specific therapeutic techniques, including approaches which fit under the umbrella terms “Energy Psychotherapy” & “Energy Psychology”. For more details see my qualifications below. I am continually on the look-out for ways of deepening and refining my practice in service to my clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Integrative Counselling (The Minster Centre, London)
Certificate in Energy Psychotherapy: energy psychology for psychotherapists and other mental health professionals (Converging Streams, London)

Whilst training as a therapist I worked for mental health charities and in drug and alcohol recovery settings. I now work with a broad range of general adult presentations: anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, trauma and health problems, including health problems not responding to medical interventions. Working in private practice in London has included working with the particular nature of trauma presentations localised in our capital city, including trauma suffered on account of terrorism, murder, rape and sexual assault. My approach is based not on management of symptoms but on deep and lasting recovery.
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

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).
