Hello, I am Amanda and thank you for stopping by my profile.
As you can see I have a beautiful guide dog who's name is Zorro.
I am a person centred counsellor with 10 years experience working with a variety of clients with varying presenting issues.
I believe that my life experiences have shaped the person that I am today. I hope to offer a warm, safe and accepting space and for me to facilitate you in your life's journey. I welcome you with an attitude of respect, openness and without judgement and will accompany you whilst we explore what might be troubling you today.
Counselling can be an opportunity to improve self confidence and self esteem enabling someone to evaluate or re-evaluate a persons choices in life.
I am a mum of three young adults, so family time is important to me. I search for and value new experiences and embrace life's new adventures. I respect and love being amongst nature; walking lifts my spirit every time.
I welcome any enquiries and I am happy to discuss any concerns over the telephone.
