Amanda Kelly CPCAB Dip. Couns. MBACP
“What if you can live by choice, not by chance ”.
I am a qualified integrative counsellor who is able to provide a warm and safe space to explore a variety of issues. I strongly believe that given the right conditions we all have the capacity to understand ourselves, what got us to the point we are at and to work through the changes that are needed in order to go on and create a fulfilling future.
Counselling can help you overcome anxiety, stress and deal with daily challenges. Through individual counselling which focuses solely on you, we can effect change by exploring the issues that have prevented you moving forward.
As well as working with adults, I am currently working as a counsellor for a youth education/mentoring centre. This work fits in with my background of working with young people. I have mentored with Kids Company, worked at Wells Park School and volunteered as a youth worker with Catch 22.
I am also a part time family support worker, my role is to support young people and families with challenging behaviours and special needs.
Along with this work and my counselling I have regular training and supervision to support myself and to make sure I am working ethically and to a high professional standard.
