Amanda Day Dip.Couns.MBACP registered
Hi, I'm Amanda and would welcome he opportunity to help and support you to find understanding, resolve difficulties and develop a sense of contentment in your life. At various stages in our lives we can struggle to make sense of things, whether in our relationships, working lives, due to bereavement or any major life event. This can result in feelings of anxiety, depression, low self esteem and lack of motivation and energy. We may feel our relationships are in crisis and cannot see a way through. As an experienced counsellor, I offer my clients the opportunity to explore those aspects that may be painful or challenging, helping you discover a new perspective and more comfortable way of living within a relationship which provides non-judgemental support and encouragement. My aim is to provide a safe, confidential space where we can explore the issues that have led you to seek counselling. I bring to my work a great deal of life experience and seek to meet my clients with warmth and compassion borne out of my own extensive therapeutic experience, working from a peaceful and confidential room in my home near Stourbridge.
To seek help requires a leap of faith and I never underestimate the courage it can take to make that leap.
I would be happy to answer any questions you may have and give you further details over the telephone. Please use my confidential answerphone to leave a message and a convenient time to call you, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
I offer evening appointments when required.
