About me

AMANDA FYFE MA PGCE DipFE MBACP

CBT, Person-Centred and Integrative Counsellor

Clinical Supervisor

I am a BACP registered Counsellor working in private practice in Chorlton, South Manchester providing counselling and psychotherapy for adults, couples and young people aged 11+ with emotional, psychological and behavioural problems.

I have worked in the fields of mental health and education for 30 years. I work mainly with clients with generalised anxiety disorder, anxiety, depression, panic disorders, social phobias, low self-esteem, family and relationship issues, OCD and disordered eating conditions.

I also work with clients with emotional and physical/chronic pain, IBS, fibromyalgia, bereavement, arthritis and post-op pain.

I offer a safe supportive space where clients are free to explore personal thoughts, feelings and complex challenging issues. My role is to help clients throughout the process without judgement, to resolve issues, build capacity for self-management and re-establish a sense of control and emotional resilience. Together we can identify themes, work through obstacles or barriers and understand how wider influences or patterns of thoughts and behaviours may be maintaining anxious or depressed feelings.

What I can help with

Addictions, Eating disorders, Obsessions, OCD, Phobias, Self-harm, Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Trauma, ADD / ADHD, Asperger syndrome, Cancer, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Disability, Health related issues, Cultural issues, Identity issues, Self esteem, Spirituality, Women's issues, Child related issues, Relationships, Redundancy, Stress, Work related issues

Clinical Supervision

I offer clinical supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors as well as healthcare and education professionals.  I use Hawkins and Shohet’s relational and systemic Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision.  Supervision focuses on the relationships between the client, counsellor and supervisor and the connections and interplay between each relationship and their context within the wider system.  I emphasise the importance of contemplation and reflection and cultivating and refining the skills and abilities to search for new choices and possibilities.  I try to create a climate where the dynamics and creativity of the work can be fully explored generating more independent, inspired and resourceful Supervisees.
