Amanda Hawking, Humanistic/Integrative Counsellor/Supervisor, BACP Accredited
You may be feeling low or anxious, perhaps you are suffering from a loss (relationship, bereavement or job) which you are finding hard to deal with or just feeling generally overwhelmed or confused by your feelings.
Sometimes life doesn't go quite how we have planned and events can happen which can leave us feeling vulnerable emotionally. This in turn can impact on our self esteem, relationships and on our general health. It can be helpful to work through these feelings with someone outside of family and friends.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer one-to-one support in coping with issues such as stress, low self-esteem, depression, bereavement, eating disorders, anxiety and relationships.
I offer a welcoming, supportive and confidential space in central Bath in which you are free to discuss any problems in your life. I enjoy working in collaboration with you to explore the best way for you to move forward in your life and I offer qualities of warmth and compassion as well as gentle challenge.
As well as running my private practice for 8 years, my experience includes working as a volunteer Counsellor for Cotswold Counselling and as a Counselling Trainer for Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC). I have also spent time working as a volunteer befriender for The Lullaby Trust.
I enjoy working with a variety of different issues and have a special interest in anxiety, pre- and post-natal issues and bereavement.
Whatever is troubling you, getting in touch will offer you the opportunity to decide whether counselling could help. You are welcome to phone or email me to find out further information about counselling. Alternatively you can make an initial assessment appointment and we can discuss together how counselling may be helpful to you.
