Amanda Webbon BA (Hons) MBACP (Snr. Accred)
The Cottage Therapy Centre
12 New Street
I am a BACP senior accredited psychotherapist/counsellor and also a Coach. I offer a confidential therapeutic space where you can explore the areas of your life that are causing you distress. I am caring and professional and experienced in working with adults in areas which include: Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, illness, Low self-Esteem, Low self confidence, Personal Development, Postnatal Depression, Relationship issues, Sexuality, Stress and Work related issues.
My aim is to help you to help yourself and to work therapeutically in a way that is right for you. I am a person-centered therapist and experienced at integrating CBT, Mindfulness or Solution Focused Therapy into my work where appropriate. I believe that with my empathic and non-judgemental style you will feel supported and empowered. Working collaboratively with me I hope you will feel accepted and valued and more able to make the decisions that will enhance your well-being and help you to live your life in a more satisfying way.
Counselling provides the opportunity to talk about and think through personal difficulties or areas of concern in a confidential and supportive environment with someone trained to listen carefully and help you move forward. Many people find that they can get a better understanding of their issues and are more able to make life enhancing changes through their experience of talking therapy.
As an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) my practice is monitored by a qualified counselling supervisor and is bound by the BACP ethical framework. I am also listed on the BACP Professional Standards Authority accredited register. I hold both DBS and ICO certificates.

As an experienced practitioner I am able to offer you space and time to share your thoughts and feelings in order to help you to explore the difficulties you are experiencing. It is possible that a mixture of counselling and coaching could be useful and more appropriate for your needs. As a qualified coach I am able to offer this too. I understand that deciding to come for counselling might seem like a difficult decision and for this reason I offer an initial 30 minute session for you to make this choice.
I would like you to feel that this decision is the right one for you and an initial 30 minute session will give you the opportunity to meet me, as questions, explore how I work and discover whether I would be the right therapist for you. The cost of this initial session is £15.00.
