FREE 30 minute initial telephone consultation
Hi there, I am Amy Bambury, a qualified Therapist Registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I am also a Christian Counsellor but if you're not a Christian (and even if you are) religious views do not have to enter the room. Religion rarely comes up in sessions but it can be nice to have it in there if you want it.
I have worked with all types off issues with clients including but not limited to anxiety, depression, rape, abuse-including historical abuse, work or personal stress, relationship problems, fertility issues, loneliness and illness. I offer short and long term counselling.
Finding the right counsellor is perhaps THE most important part of any counselling you have. Your connection with the counsellor is crucial to positive and affective therapy. Follow your gut on this one.
Life is hard and no one is immune. It can feel overwhelming, out of control or too much to face. Problems can feel like they consume you and leak into everything else, making you lose focus and perspective and feel completely out of control, and then this can create anxiety or even health problems like stomach acid, reflux, digestive issues, headaches or joint problems. I know what its like to think you can't do this anymore, to think everything is going to come crashing down-including you. I know what its like to feel that your world is shrinking with anxiety controlling all you do or to be a slave to an illness. In my 48 years of life I have experienced many difficulties as life has taken its twists and turns and counselling has helped me though many of them.
I know it's hard to say out loud your innermost thoughts and fears and I want you to feel reassured when I say I will spend time truly listening to what you say, holding your words and feelings so carefully and respectfully. I will never judge you. I will provide for you a safe environment where you can relax and just be you. Where you can explore what it is that bothers you, and help you find a way forward.
Counselling brings healing, healing from pain from the past or present. It also brings a clearer vision of life and an opportunity to finally close that door on the past or open new doors to your future.
Hopefully you will find that having that time and space once a week, for almost an hour, to be with someone who understands you. Stepping away from the fight of life, to just stop, look and gain perspective and clarity. This is what I'm offering.
If you would like an initial chat with me, just call or text and we can arrange a free initial telephone consultation, where you can decide if you would like to work with me, because the relationship you build with your therapist is the most important thing in your therapy.
A quick word on Anxiety
Anxiety can feel like it's 'who you are' or 'who you have become'. I don't believe this is the case. I believe you are separate and that you can detach yourself from that anxious state and find freedom to live your life.
When you have anxiety it restricts the things you do, and the more it restricts you, the less you can do, until you get to the stage where your comfort zone is so small you barely do anything anymore without facing a very traumatic time.
When you have anxiety, you lose your confidence, in fact, you lose you.
Medication can help with the palpitations and the low mood or depression that comes as a result of the loss of control, but your mind is a far more powerful tool in the fight against anxiety.
There's a reason your anxiety came. My job is to look at why it came and what's behind it. Then we can work together to find a way to separate the anxiety from you so you can to live your life how you once did or you once dreamt of.
It is possible.

I also offer:
Sometimes we find comfort in possessions, and those possessions can take many forms.
Sometimes we struggle to throw things away because it feels like a part of who we are.
Sometimes we buy things that we don't need but love the thrill of the purchsing experience.
We all have things that have a value, whether that's financially or emotionally, but when this affects our ability to live, to use the rooms in the house or to socialise at home it begins to be a problem.
To start with, we just have a conversation about what you are looking for with regard to helping you with your hoard.
Then, we meet, and we talk some more about what your possessions mean to you.
Then, we agree a plan on how we will work together to help you achieve your goal.
This service, as with all my psychotherapy is confidential.
I am Hoarding UK trained and follow their program of 12 weekly appointments, 12 fortnightly appointments and 3 monthly appointments (where required). All visits are 90 minutes.
