Amanda Webb, PG Dip, (MBACP)
Hi there! I am a welcoming and compassionate integrative relational therapist.
My specialities are in body diversity, body neutrality, appearance concerns and visible differences. I also welcome anyone seeking a space in which to explore how they relate to themselves, others and with the world.
My practice is progressive, forward thinking and combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit your needs. Your therapy journey will be bespoke and co-created with you, so that you can leave therapy feeling empowered, confident and capable to tackle life's obstacles.
My own experience of living with a visible difference means that I understand how difficult it can be to navigate social interactions, micro-aggressions and the experience of being judged based on appearance.
Having a negative perception of our own bodies or the essecence of who we are is destructive, unhealthy, and can cause our self-esteem to dwindle, providing a petri dish for self loathing to breed in - not fun!
My work with you will centre around exploring how you relate to yourself and others, reducing and removing elements of societal shame that isn't yours to hold, tackling social anxiety and providing a space for you to find your own unique ways to thrive in all areas of life.
I'm currently taking online Zoom and telephone sessions with availability for face to face sessions again as of September 2020.

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.
