Amanda Jewitt MBACP
My goal is always to provide a friendly, confidential, collaborative and non-judgmental environment, listening carefully to the issues clients bring to therapy and working with them to find a way forward that works well in their lives. We determine together what the desired outcome is and then work on how they might achieve this. In my experience this provides clients with the uniquely tailored support they require and empowers them to make the changes they want in their lives and find a way through the difficulties they are experiencing. I work with clients on whatever they feel is important in their lives. My experience includes working with couples, individual adults, young people, children and families on a broad range of issues. I have extensive experience in working with clients on grief and bereavement, anxiety, anger, depression, work related issues (including career and work relationship problems) marital/relationship issues and parenting.
I work Monday to Friday from early morning to various times. If you would like to find out more about the way I work I would be happy to hear from you, please contact me and I will do my best to answer any queries you may have.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
