Ama Clarke, MBACP - Talking Therapy With Ama
Talking Therapy with Ama is a space to talk over difficulties, solve problems and relieve stress. We work with common mental health concerns, grief and loss, identity issues and achieving work-life balance. We deal with Anger, Trauma, Shame, Abuse and Anxiety. A safe space to talk, find healing, and move forward.
How We Work:
Ama has a flexible approach and adjusts to suit the needs of each client. We work at the pace that suits you, and your ability to process the issues as they emerge. Whether it is dealing with difficult experiences from the past, or processing troubling material in the here and now, counselling offers you the chance to reflect, reevaluate and decide how you want to move forward.
Some clients need space to talk, to hear and externalise the thoughts that are taking up space in their heads.
Some of us need room to process and make sense of things. Counselling also offers the containment to take things step by step, and to feel safe.
Taking care with tough emotions and impactful experiences so that you can identify the inner strength to learn from these and move forward, rather than being locked in past hurts. Talking Therapy with Ama is holding, compassionate and honours your free expression.
A welcoming and inclusive space available for brief interventions or longer term support.
Call or email to book an introductory appointment at a time that suits you. We will agree a series of weekly sessions, and you will have the opportunity to review how the work is going.

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.
