Amanda Wharton Counsellor MBACP (accred) EMDR trauma therapist IPT therapist
Hello I'm Amanda, I work as an integrative counsellor which means I am trained in many different styles of counselling, so I will adapt my knowledge to what you need.
I have an understanding of how difficult it can be to arrange counselling and the anxiety it can create. However you have made the first step towards feeling better.
I have over 8 years experience working within the NHS service. I focus my knowledge of therapy around your personal issues and problems. I like to think I offer my clients a different counselling experience and work in a directive way, my clients report that its good to have an interactive counsellor, this enables change to take place quicker.
I also specialise in EMDR which is therapy for traumatic incidents. This may include assault, sexual abuse and serious incidents that may result in anxiety or PTSD.
An example of issues I work with can range from general anxiety disorder, depression, relationship issues, bereavements and childhood issues. For an informal chat about what your specific issue is just call or email me.
