Whatever you are struggling with right now, let me help you create some self-acceptance and find your inner-calm.
My name is Amanda Hudson and I am a qualified Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapist (REBT) and Hypnotherapist. I have rooms in both Aylesbury and Bicester where I offer integrative therapy, that is individually tailored to your needs.
REBT is a solution focused type of counselling, which takes into account you as a whole person (past and present) along with all of the symptoms you are experiencing. Hypnotherapy is a natural state of relaxation, which allows the subconscious to come to the front of the mind in order to create change for the better.
It is always my aim to empower clients to take charge of their counselling journey, by working in collaboration with you on the direction of the therapy and by teaching you how your mind works, along with how you got to the point that lead you into my therapy room.
I work in a creative, relaxed style where creating a warm, friendly and judgement free space is always priority. Alongside REBT and Hypnotherapy, I often integrate some of the following therapy techniques into sessions (among others):
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
- Compassion Focused Therapy
- Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
- Creative Therapy
- Solution Focused Therapy
Training, qualifications & experience
- Advanced Integrative Diploma in REBT/CBT
- Level 3 Certificate in Hypnotherapy & Counselling (Cert. Hyp CS)
- Certificate in Counselling Skills
I am currently Lead Counsellor at The Hummingbird Centre (a spilt role I share with one other), managing and supporting a team of twenty.
I have also previously run mindfulness groups at Aylesbury youth offenders prison.
I am a Professional Member of both The National Hypnotherapy Society and The National Counselling Society along with being fully insured.
