About me

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 Milnsbridge.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

At the Elms premises, there is a counselling room available on ground floor with a ramp up to the front door.

Availability

I am available Monday to Friday from 9.30- 5.00 pm. If you require a evening session I can do Monday or Wednesday please contact me to discuss availability. Thank you
