Amanda Falkson MBACP Accredited
Established in 2004, I’m a highly experienced psychotherapist offering counselling services in the City of London, who will help you navigate personal matters such as low self-esteem, troubled relationships and anxiety and through crises like divorce and bereavement. Or to delve deeper into your life, gain insights and understand more about who you are.
I also offer a combination of coaching and psychotherapy for professional problems including career dilemmas, imposter syndrome and bullying. In a supportive and pragmatic way I will help you to unravel the issues, relocate the bigger picture when you’re caught up in detail, remind you who you are when you’ve lost sight of yourself, empower you to make change and help you to plan the best course of action.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a client myself, I found that psychotherapy not only helped me feel safe, accepted, supported, understood, acknowledged and appreciated but also calmer and more positive. It gave me a stronger sense of myself and my place in the world.
Encouraged by my own therapist and mentor, in 2000 I began the transition from client to psychotherapist. I trained in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy and have taken post-graduate studies in Solution Focused Therapy, Family Constellations, Transactional Analysis, transformational dying and death and trauma therapies including Somatic Experiencing. I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and Coaching Division.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
