Emma Tierney MBACP (Accred). Therapist and Clinical Supervisor
During this time, I am offering therapy sessions online or by phone, including a free initial consultation appointment.
My name is Emma. If you are struggling I am here to help you explore your difficulties by enabling you to gain an understanding of how you have been affected and look with you at how you can start to address these and move forward.
As a qualified and experienced practitioner, I want to support you on your path to recovery and help you to gain back your confidence, self-esteem and enjoy your life again. It takes a lot of courage to seek help and you have made the first step.
My aim is to provide you with a warm, safe, supportive and non-judgemental space to help you feel comfortable in talking about what has happened. We can work together and explore your needs to help you gain a deeper understanding around the difficulties you are experiencing and feel more empowered in making choices around your life.
I am a qualified, accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have been in practice for over 14 years. Working as an Integrative Therapist means I draw on various forms of therapy to best meet your needs. Every person is individual and it is important to find the therapy that works for you. I draw on various therapies such as; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person Centred and Psychodynamic. In my practice I may draw on other techniques such as mindfulness and therapeutic imagery and creativity which can be introduced where appropriate and in consultation with you.
As well as being in private practice, I work as a therapist for a charity and health organisation in London. I also provide clinical supervision and therapy for Counsellors and professional frontline workers in Essex and London.
Other sectors I have worked in include the charities: MIND, Victim Support, Bereavement Services and Women's Aid. I have also worked within the private and statutory sectors.
I offer support in a number of areas, with a particular focus in trauma; including domestic and sexual violence and childhood abuse having worked in this field for over 14 years.

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.
