Amali Hapugoda (Accred)
You may be reading this because you are feeling anxious and vulnerable. You may be feeling the lack of fulfilment in your life. you may have had therapy before or this could be your first time. Either way I would like to introduce you to myself. I believe that every individual is different and brings their unique life experience to therapy. For this reason, within private practice, I work with clients on an individual basis who may present with a broad range of concerns regardless of their backgrounds. I provide a non judgemental safe space to explore your emotions and difficulties.
Some of the areas of clinical interest to me are Anxiety, depression, phobias, low self-esteem, eating disorders, sexual abuse, trauma, Insomnia, and grief. It is evident that individuals may share a number of emotional difficulties across all of these categories, each person bringing an individual story and need as appropriate.
My approach is integrative. That is, I choose to draw from a wide range of available theoretical and evidence-based models in order to meet the needs of any one client at any particular time on their journey towards resolution. In this way, I am able to work with a client within a collaborative and client-focussed paradigm, and to tailor a programme of therapy best suited to each individual. The programme may be subject to change as a client makes progress over time, and subject to on-going review.

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.
