Amber Rampley, BA (Hons), Dip. TA Psychotherapeutic Counselling, MBACP
There are times in all our lives when speaking to someone outside our immediate friend or family group can be really helpful. You may be in the midst of a life-changing event, or troubled relationship; perhaps you’re experiencing illness, bereavement, or suffering with depression, anxiety or addiction. Whatever you’re facing right now, I offer a warm, holding and confidential environment in which to explore these issues.
A little about me and how I work
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor working in private practice in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I am trained in transactional analysis psychotherapy and I take a psychodynamic approach to my work. Fundamentally, I believe in working relationally, which means putting the relationship that we develop at the heart of the work.
How can therapy help you?
Very often, just talking and sharing your worries with another person can offer immediate relief. Ongoing, I believe that within us all there is capacity for positive change. By looking at the relational dynamics that may emerge in our sessions, we can start to untangle and understand those issues that brought you to therapy and possibly more. The aim is to reach a place where you feel content and not held back by persistent worries, unhealthy relationships or behaviours.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a diploma in transactional analysis psychotherapeutic counselling and I am in the process of completing the final requirements for my MSc in transactional analysis psychotherapy.
Experience and special interest
I work with adults, young adults and couples across a whole spectrum of issues including abuse, addiction, anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, eating disorders, infertility, loneliness, loss, panic-disorders, pregnancy-related issues, relationships, self esteem, self-harm, sexuality, sexual identity, stress, trauma, women’s issues and work-related issues. This list is far from exhaustive, though, and therapy is very much about bringing whatever troubles you to the work.
I have a special interest in working with pre- and post-natal women and couples.
As well as my private practice, I have several years combined experience working with a broad range of issues both in NHS primary care and charity/not-for-profit sectors.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (no. 296021). I am also a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (trainee status, no. 2011163027) and the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis.
