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.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with children and families for over 30 years. In February 2010 I gained a professional qualification in social work. I provide a holistic and positive approach to the challenges that life can bring. I am a Registered Member MBACP and have a Diploma Counselling. I have also undertaken to the following training.
- The journey from hurt to healing (working with Survivors of sexual abuse)
- ARC ( Attachment Regulation and competency)
- Reiki 3rd degree.
- Awareness of Bereavement Care.
- Working with people that self-harm.
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.
