My name is Emma Stimson; I am an accredited psychotherapist offering CBT and counselling therapy.
My educational background includes an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy and a PGDip in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I am registered with the BABCP and BACP who regulate professional standards within my profession.
I know that one therapeutic approach does not fit all, which is why I have trained as an integrative and CBT psychotherapist. Integrative psychotherapy incorporates person centred and attachment therapy. In addition, as a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist, treatment considers how our thoughts effect our behaviours and emotions, and how these can affect us physically.
Many things can cause our world to unravel and sometimes we become overwhelmed by worry or low mood and need expert guidance to overcome our difficulties. I treat depression and many different anxiety disorders including; obsessive compulsive disorder, phobia, panic, generalised anxiety, social anxiety and health anxiety. I also treat eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder. I also work with addiction and habit reversal.
I work with all ages including 16-18 year olds and 65+. I have trained in working with long term conditions and learning and behavioural disabilities.
I pride myself on my empathetic, supportive practice where individuals are free to talk in a non-judgemental, compassionate environment where the therapeutic relationship is core to my practice.
For more information please contact me by telephone or email.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.
BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
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.
