About me

Amber Rampley, BA (Hons), PGDip. Transactional Analysis Studies, Dip. TA Psychotherapeutic Counselling, MBACP

There are times in all our lives when speaking to someone outside our immediate friend or family group can be really helpful. You may be in the midst of a life-changing event, or troubled relationship; perhaps you’re experiencing illness, bereavement, or suffering with depression, anxiety or addiction. Whatever you’re facing right now, I offer a warm, holding and confidential environment in which to explore these issues.

A little about me and how I work
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor working in private practice in Buckinghamshire. I offer face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy to individuals. I am trained in transactional analysis psychotherapy and I take a psychodynamic approach to my work. Fundamentally, I believe in working relationally, which means putting the relationship that we develop at the heart of the work.

How can therapy help you?
Very often, just talking and sharing your worries with another person can offer immediate relief. Ongoing, I believe that within us all there is capacity for positive change. By looking at the relational dynamics that may emerge in our sessions, we can start to untangle and understand those issues that brought you to therapy and possibly more. The aim is to reach a place where you feel content and not held back by past experiences, persistent worries, unhealthy relationships or behaviours.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the Metanoia Institute in collaboration with Middlesex University.  I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis Studies and a Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling.

Experience and special interest
I work with young adults and adults across a whole spectrum of issues including abuse, addiction, anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, eating disorders, infertility, loneliness, loss, neurodiversity, panic-disorders, pregnancy-related issues, relationships, self esteem, self-harm, sexuality, sexual identity, stress, trauma, women’s issues and work-related issues. This list is far from exhaustive, though, and therapy is very much about bringing whatever troubles you to the work.

As well as my private practice, I have several years combined experience working with a broad range of issues both in NHS primary care and charity/not-for-profit sectors.

Professional memberships
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (no. 296021). I am also a member of the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA) and the European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA).

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
