About me

Hi, I'm Amanda, I can help you to explore your experiences and identify what you would like to change for a happier and more fulfilled life.  

I provide integrative psychotherapy in a safe calm and compassionate environment. I have experience in GAD, bereavement, self harm, trauma, relationships, stress, child related issues and depression.

I offer weekly sessions that last 50 minutes, and you can see me for either a short term problem or we can work together with an open ended contract that allows for a deeper exploration - just let me know what you need.

You are welcome to contact me with any questions or to discuss your individual needs. I offer a free initial consultation, so please do get in touch.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
