About me

Hi. My name is Amanda and I am a fully qualified and experienced professional integrative Counsellor.

I work with people going through challenging times in their lives.  The focus of our work will be helping you to understand yourself better and to find more constructive ways to deal with the important issues and/or relationships in your life.  I offer short-term and long-term counselling to clients who are seeking a confidential and safe space to explore your difficulties where you will be listened to with acceptance and kindness.  I am also DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked.

Sometimes we try to think our way out of a problem and, at other times, we are overwhelmed with feelings and fears.  By understanding and experiencing these in a safe environment we can grow and develop through an integrative process.  My approach is tailored to each client's individual needs and, by working together, we can affect change and healing in addition to developing skills to regulate emotions.

I work narratively and sometimes creatively through art and writing as this can be an influential means of guidance and transformation.

Choosing a Counsellor can be a daunting task, especially so when highly distressed and in need of urgent help.  I am trained to evaluate and use different therapeutic models and can, therefore, offer the most appropriate service to each client.  I welcome clients regardless of sexual orientation, ethnic origin or spiritual beliefs.

I have previously worked at Broadway Lodge which is a residential addictions rehabilitation centre and has involved working with clients from all walks of life.  Much of my work here has been working with clients with presenting mental health issues alongside addiction.  Together we explore underlying issues which can lead to mental ill health and addiction together with patterns in relationships and current behaviour.
