About me

Welcome. My name is Amanda Perl and I am a fully qualified and insured BACP Accredited Counsellor, Psychotherapist and CBT Practitioner.

What do you need from therapy?

Are you feeling lost, sad or lonely? Jealous, fearful, guilty or ashamed? Perhaps you’re anxious, critical, unkind and angry losing your temper with yourself or loved ones? Relationships feel tricky. Stress unmanageable. You may lack assertiveness yet control others whilst secretly gambling, spending, drinking or using cocaine. Feel preoccupied with eating or Not eating. Obsessed with image, perfectionism and self-monitoring. Maybe its difficult to start the day? Messing up your business, missing opportunities, failing at work? Numbing out of painful emotions from bereavement or loss? Or you and your partner have become stuck in a rut or found yourselves caught in a cycle of emotional abuse?

I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can share and explore present and past experiences, express thoughts and feelings gaining personal awareness, enjoy a better quality of life, robust mental health, improved well-being and positive relationships with friends, parents, siblings, children and work.

I can help you with anxiety, paranoid anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, bereavement, trauma, PTSD, OCD, phobias, anger management, personality disorders, eating disorders including obesity, bulimia and anorexia, body dysmorphia, physical and sexual abuse, gender and sexuality, addiction(s) including substance misuse, alcohol, compulsive lying, codependency, affairs and betrayals, sex and porn, internet, gambling and gaming in addition to parent, couple and relationship issues specialising in men and women caught up together in a cycle of emotional abuse.

Life begins on the other side of despair" Jean-Paul Sartre.

I believe each of us is unique with the potential for growth and development and can move forward in our own way. Your motivation to change and our client therapist relationship is the key to healing.

My practice is all about fitting you to the therapy, not the other way round. Life experience has led me to a deeper understanding of how we are all individuals with our own story to tell. Our reasons for seeking professional help and desire to move away from stuck patterns are all different. However, our requirements are all the same. That we feel listened to and properly heard, understood and guided through emotional turmoil. There are no essentials or absolutes so why can any of us be expected to be understood by a single theory, style of therapy or helped by one specific therapeutic approach?

Type of therapy

My philosophy is Humanistic-Existential and Person-Centred. I integrate interventions that best suit you including Transactional Analysis, Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), recommended under the NICE Guidelines, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic, Systemic, Transpersonal and Gestalt alongside Mindfulness practice.
