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 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.
