Hi, my name is Amanda. I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist.
I am fully insured with an enhanced DBS and also an individual registered member with the BACP.
I work in a person-centred approach which means I offer a non-directive, listening style of therapy which puts you, the client in control of your own theraputic counselling journey which is all conducted in a safe, confidential and caring environment whilst abiding by the BACP code of ethics and guidelines.
I decided to become a Counsellor/Psychotherapist after being a client myself and experiencing first-hand the positive effects of counselling which inspired me to want to pass the same feelings on to others that I had experienced myself.
I am passionate and caring about what I do and I'm here to help you, the client navigate issues or concerns that could be hampering or causing you upset in your personal/professional life.
So please feel free to get in touch if you feel that my counselling approach can support you. (I offer a free 20mins telephone consultation to new clients to see if we both feel comfortable enough to work together)

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
