Amanda Parker BA Hons, Adv Dip Integ. Couns, Reg MBACP
I am a warm and open integrative counsellor who works in a private tranquil environment to ensure a safe place for clients to explore their feelings without fear of judgement.
I am a registered member of the BACP and as such adhere to the BACP Code of Ethics.
I am passionate about making counselling more accessible to everyone but especially to those who find fees a barrier to accessing counselling. Therefore I have a number of concessions available for those on low/no income. Please feel free to enquire about these.
I believe that our key workers in the emergency services are often troubled and do not always have access to adequate counselling services. For this reason individuals who work in these fields and also in medical care can receive reduced charges on their counselling sessions.

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.
