Amanda Brown (MBACP)
I am an integrative therapist based in Kingston Upon Thames, I draw upon a range of different theoretical approaches to meet the individual needs of each client, as I believe each persons experiences are unique to them. I am experienced in helping people through their difficulties offering both short term and long term therapy.
I believe that personal therapy helps people to reflect on how their personal experiences affect them and develop a self awareness, as well as emotional resilience in a safe, empathetic and confidential environment. Allowing the client to feel empowered, whilst being able to communicate openly.
As an integrative therapist I am qualified to work with several different approaches which includes - Psychodynamic (PDT), Humanistic approach - Person Centred therapy (PCT) based on personal growth and self development & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) used for specific phobias and anxieties.
At times there may be no words to describe a feeling or experience, I offer a safe place to explore this process with you using writing, colouring, images, pebbles and mindfulness techniques.

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.
