Amanda Collinson MBACP Adv. Dip.
The Leigh Clinic
84 Elm Road
Whatever concerns or difficulties you have with my experience as a professionally trained and BACP registered counsellor we can work together to overcome them. I offer individual and couples counselling from comfortable therapy rooms at The Leigh Clinic.
So what is in it for you? Someone to talk to, someone to provide you support, undo your confusion, move away from feeling stuck, gain a sense of emotional wellbeing, feel relaxed, freedom from distress, positive change, letting go of fears and anxieties, peace of mind and happiness, feeling energised, a happier and healthier life.
It's all about you. Counselling focusses on your needs. Using my skills I aim to help you achieve the change you are looking for.
I work in an integrative style incorporating person centred and psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Systemic techniques which means I can adapt my approach to suit your personality and your personal style of working.
