About me

My name is Amanda and I am a qualified humanistic counsellor/therapist who is a registered member of the BACP (my registration logo can be seen further down) I offer a 1:1 counselling service to people aged 16 and over. I am empathic, non judgemental and what you share is confidential. Time and space is given for you to explore your issues.

I decided to become a counsellor as I really enjoy helping others over many years of my working life, and feel that working with and helping others is where my talents lie. I really enjoy seeing my clients progress from when they start Counselling to the end. Making a difference in people's lives is so rewarding.

I have experienced many different events in my life, and feel my life experiences enhances my work with clients.

I have vast experience of working with clients who have mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety. I specialise in mental health disorders and the impact this can have on relationships and work. I also work with clients who have experienced trauma, abuse, ptsd, feelings of worthlessness, and also clients that are lacking in confidence or feel they have lost themselves. Find more issues that I work with below, if you have any questions feel free to contact me.

So how can I work with you? I can aid you in improving your relationships with others, and with yourself. I offer more self confidence, higher self esteem, and generally feeling better about your life. Talking to a professional enables you to talk freely about your issues, without being judged. The therapeutic relationship is paramount in aiding your healing, building trust together and having a real connection, and offers a space for you to feel safe in.

If you feel counselling is something that you may interested in, you can contact me by text, email or telephone to arrange a £20 assessment to discuss what you would like to talk about within our sessions, how many sessions you require, and how we can work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified humanistic counsellor, I work within a person centred framework, using gestalt and transactional analysis.

I offer a welcoming, open, warm and caring service, which supports various needs. I understand coming into counselling can be quite daunting at first, but I can assure you that the comfortable space and client centred service will put you at ease. I promise I will not ask you to lay down on a couch!

As well as continuing professional development (CPD) which all counsellors who are members of a professional body have to undertake each year, I believe in life long learning. I feel it is important to keep up to date, and learn as much as I can, so that I can offer you the best service possible.
