About me

Hello, my name is Amber and I am a qualified Therapist with twenty years of experience. I work with individuals, couples and families. We can talk about what's going on for you, explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours, questions and confusion. Sometimes we can experience problems, emotional difficulties and may not know why or understand what is happening but we know things are not okay. Sometimes we do know whats wrong but can't seem to move on and experience re-occurring destructive patterns.

I will work with you to help identify root causes, experiences and express feelings that may have been suppressed for a long time, impacting on how you are feeling and being in the here and now. I work integratively this means I draw on different approaches to help each client heal and move forward. This may include working psychoanalytically, drawing on person centred and psychodynamic theory, working brief solution focussed, working with CBT. I work using myself as the main therapeutic tool being warm, empathic, perceptive, accepting, open and honest working both long term open ended and shorter term.

Getting in touch with your emotions and experiences can provide long term healing so that you are able to move on to a more enjoyable and fulfilling life. Through awareness and healing through the Therapeautic Relationship we can move forward.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Humanistic (Person-Centred) Therapist. Throughout my time as a Therapist I have continued to work in Private Practice with individuals/couples and families and for seven years I worked as a Therapist in the NHS. I also have worked as a Therapist within Child and Adolescent residential mental health services and CAMHS community teams. Before qualifying as a Therapist I worked for eight years in social services with families in need. I am trained to post graduate level as a Family Therapist and have a masters in Drama and Movement Psychotherapy.

I experienced Therapy myself for many years which gave me the greatest development in my awareness and ability as a Therapist. I strongly believe to be able to see, understand and help clients to move forward we need to have felt/experienced and addressed our own issues.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I therefore abide by the Code of Ethics and Practice. I receive ongoing supervision to ensure I work ethically and within safe guidelines. I am also registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) due to having a Masters in Psychotherapy.
