Hi my name is Amanda Collings and I am an Accredited Qualified Counsellor working both privately and with organisations/EAPs in a solution focussed/brief therapy way. It has always been important for me to focus on the client's needs, to build rapport early in the counsellor/client relationship to create a place where they can feel safe and really heard.
I work with any issues presented to me, including bereavement/loss/change, relationship issues, anxiety/stress, work stress/relationships amongst many others. I charge £35 per hour and I use a town address EX4 usually on Tuesdays and Wednesdays/Thursdays and my home address EX2 on the other days of the week.
If you'd like to contact me please do so via email or website.
Training, qualifications & experience
in 2004 I qualified as an Advanced Diploma Counsellor with IronMill Institute and since 2010 I have been an Accredited Counsellor with BACP and have renewed this annually.
I started in 2002 working within the in-house Counselling Service of Devon County Council offering short-term therapy. Since 2012 I have been working as a self employed Counsellor, mainly under the umbrella of DTCS (Devon Therapeutic Counselling Services), working with many EAP services and also seeing clients on a private basis. I have worked with employees of DSFRS, Mid Devon District Council, Devon County Council (including Schools), Exeter University, Exeter City Council and other external contracts. I am a Registered and Accredited Member of BACP and abide by their Code of Ethics and Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
I have continued to update my Professional Development with many courses, namely Flexible CBT, NLP, Rewind Techniques amongst others.
