Amanda Balaam - Adult & Young Persons Counsellor. MBACP / Adv.Dips Couns.
I am a Professional Qualified Counsellor working in the Exmouth area. As an experienced Community Counsellor working daily for the NHS within schools & family homes I can be flexible to meeting clients in their own homes if required. I have experience working in a local GP Surgery & Adult College as well as my own Private Practice.
I enjoy working with a varied client group, helping adults, young people & their families to understand & express their thoughts & feelings. I provide a safe & open place to work on whatever issues are impacting on your life. Supporting you on your path to improved health & happiness.
I enjoy working therapeutically with young people, adapting sessions to meet their needs. I deliver age appropriate therapy in order to for the young person & their families to gain the best outcomes.
I work within the BACP ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy which maintains a high standard of clinical practice.
