Amanda Penn. BSc (Hons), Dip. Reg MBACP.
Hello, my name is Amanda and I am a fully qualified counsellor registered with the BACP. I have been practicing both as a private and as a volunteer counsellor for three years at a charity counselling service; working with clients that have issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement to name just a few.
As a counsellor, I will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and empathic space to enable you to talk freely and in confidence about whatever is troubling you. Working together I will help you to find your own solutions and the best path for you to move forward.
I offer a free initial consultation and then should you wish to proceed, counselling usually takes a minimum of six sessions and generally lasts up to twelve but your progress and wishes will be reviewed and discussed at the sixth session. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. The counselling sessions will be at the 'Elms' a counselling centre in Milnsbrisge.
