About me

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.

For couples, it's a space to find out more about each other, improve communication and collaborate on a way forward with the partnership. 

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.

Getting Started:

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.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
