I AM OFFERING ONLINE EMDR THERAPY AND COUNSELLING DUE TO COVID 19
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues or any mental health problems I offer a free telephone consultation.
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 10 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.
In addition to the above I also specialise in depression using a 16 session Interpersonal therapy which focuses on one area that may be contributing to your depression.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
