Dr Amelia Rana
An HCPC Registered and BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist working with individuals or couples. I am also a supervisor, trainer and university lecturer.
The basis of my work is a relational approach and my focus is the therapeutic process. I draw from a variety of approaches depending on each individual. I integrate approaches such as Person-centered, CBT and Psychodynamic.
I belong to the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the HCPC and adhere to their code of ethics.
Counselling gives you a safe and supportive space to work through any feelings or difficulties you may be experiencing. It offers a new perspective from which to gain insight and is an opportunity for you to discover your feelings, recognise your ways of thinking and behaving and help you to become truly empowered.
Our first session is a chance for us to meet and discuss what you would like to gain from counselling. If we decide to go ahead with further counselling sessions, we will agree how frequently we will meet and what our therapeutic goals are.
