Amanda Canavan MNCS (Accred)
I offer every session with a friendly and confidential approach, as I take pride in understanding in-depth the issues that are having an impact on your life. We will work together, so you won't feel alone and have someone to talk through anything that may be bothering you. I personally believe it is valuable to help each client to see potential in themselves in our sessions together.
I provide a non-judgemental service to every client. It is important for me as a counsellor to create a safe environment to help with any issues that may be presented in the counselling room. Examples of theories I use are Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic.
