My name is Emma Taylor and I am a qualified integrative counsellor and CBT counsellor with a counselling and psychotherapy practice based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. I am also BUPA Recognised and a registered LINK Adoption Counsellor.
Quite a few years ago now, a life changing event caused me to re-evaluate my future. With the help of my family and friends and a great counsellor, I began to move forward, to understand what makes me who I am and I learnt how to look after myself, that was a particularly steep learning curve.
I then went on to train to become a counsellor in the Bury St Edmunds area and now I am able to provide my clients with what my counsellor did for me:
- Was non judgmental
- Respected my confidence
- Listened and really heard me
- Guided me but never told me what to do
- Helped me learn to look after myself emotionally
- Helped me with coping strategies
- Helped me acknowledge where my present actions came from
I offer one to one counselling to explore any issues you may have confidentially and in a safe and quiet environment. My counselling approach is integrative and at the initial session we will discuss your requirements and what you would hope to achieve from counselling.
Some of the issues covered include relationship issues, bereavement & grief, depression, anger & anxiety, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and many more. To see them please feel free to visit my website.
Training, qualifications & experience
My belief is that to be an effective Counsellor, you need to be all of the above, but one thing that is so important is that you need to provide the hope that things can get better as they did for me!
I have been a Counsellor for around 15 years. I set up my own practice, Bury St Edmunds Counselling and it’s now a busy practice. I also work for the NHS part-time which I also enjoy.
I also gained a BA (Hons) in Integrative Counselling to ensure that I am highly qualified and can offer my clients knowledge as well as experience and a journey which I hope will be life changing.
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 Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
