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 counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples. 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 adults, young adults and couples across a whole spectrum of issues including abuse, addiction, anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, eating disorders, infertility, loneliness, loss, 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.
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).
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.

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).
