Amanda Berridge Registered Member MBACP
Hi I'm Amanda. I've had many years working with children, young people and families that have faced extreme life struggles and stresses.
These include sensitive issues such as abuse, self-harm, attachment disorders, loss, grief and people whose past experiences impact on their ability to cope with day to day life challenges.
I provide a person centred non-judgmental approach. I will provide a space in which we can build a therapeutic relationship and explore fears and difficult feelings with an aim to looking forward, setting goals and being able to cope with the ups and downs that life can often bring.
