About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Emma Furr MA MBACP. I am an experienced, qualified and registered counsellor and psychotherapist working full time in private practice in the Richmond (TW9) and Twickenham (TW1) area.
Counselling and psychotherapy can provide a safe, confidential, supportive space for you to bring any problems you are having and explore difficult thoughts and feelings. It can sometimes be challenging to find the right counsellor and psychotherapist, but I will tell you a little bit about how I work and what I believe in, and then if you would like a telephone chat before you decide to book to see me, you are very welcome.
As an integratively trained psychotherapist I seek to put the individual client first and foremost, whilst also being able to draw on a number of different approaches, including psychodynamic, humanistic, existential and relational. I use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) whenever it is appropriate.
I work with individuals, aged 16 and over, and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I have worked with a broad range of issues, most recently with Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust offering brief psychodynamic therapy; Kingston Women's Centre, offering long term integrative psychotherapy; and The Mulberry Centre offering individual counselling to patients, their carers, and those bereaved through cancer.
I am also an Anxiety UK approved therapist trained to work with anxiety disorders.
Practice descriptionI currently provide therapy sessions via video and over the telephone from my base in Richmond-upon-Thames helping you to stay well, calm and connected at a difficult time. During these unsettling and extremely challenging times, it is so important to reach out and ask for help. Telephone or video sessions provide you with understanding, support, calm, and a safe space to explore your anxieties.
My first sessionI believe that a good relationship between therapist and client has a big impact on the effectiveness of therapy, so the initial consultation is to see if working together feels right for both of us. This gives you a chance to find out more about how I work and whether I am the right fit for you, and me a chance to get a sense of what you are looking for from counselling and whether I can support you with that.
