Hi there, I am Amy Bambury, I am a qualified Person centred counsellor.
I became a counsellor because I wanted to understand why people act differently to how they feel, this understanding I hoped would then enable me to help people free themselves from the entrapment of the past or present.
Something has brought you to seek counselling help, maybe you feel like you’re going crazy, maybe you feel like you can’t cope anymore. Possibly you feel like you’ve reached the end of your tether and need help. That’s ok, that’s what counselling is for.
Counselling helps you get back in touch with you and your ability to cope. Knowing exactly how you feel, as daunting or as upsetting as that may be, is the perfect place to start
I help with many issues but specialise in people who suffer with anxiety or depression as a result of historical abuse. Carrying trauma like this around for years is terribly draining and tormenting and frankly not fair on you. It never goes away, just keeps haunting you and I want you to be free of it and I believe that is possible.
If you are using alcohol, drugs, work, food or anything to distract yourself from those haunting memories then I want to help you take control of that beast that torments you and claim your life back.
Beginning counselling can be a hard decision and sometimes it feels like admitting defeat or failing. The truth is we all need a helping hand sometimes and that’s ok.
I will provide a safe environment for you to talk.
I will not judge you.
I will believe everything you tell me.
If you would like an initial chat with me, just call or text and we can arrange a free initial consultation, where you can decide if you would like to work with me, because... the relationship you build with your therapist is the most important thing in your therapy.
I am also a Christian Counsellor but if you're not a Christian (and even if you are) religious views do not have to enter the room. Religion rarely comes up in sessions but it can be nice to have it in there if you want it.
Free 30 minute telephone/email/message/text consultation
A quick word on Anxiety
Anxiety can feel like it's 'who you are' or 'who you have become'. I don't believe this is the case. I believe you are separate and that you can detach yourself from that anxious state and find freedom to live your life.
When you have anxiety it restricts the things you do, and the more it restricts you, the less you can do, until you get to the stage where your comfort zone is so small you barely do anything anymore without facing a very traumatic time.
When you have anxiety, you lose your confidence, in fact, you lose you.
Medication can help with the palpitations and the low mood or depression that comes as a result of the loss of control, but your mind is a far more powerful tool in the fight against anxiety.
There's a reason your anxiety came. My job is to look at why it came and what's behind it. Then we can work together to find a way to separate the anxiety from you so you can to live your life how you once did or you once dreamt of.
It is possible.
FREE initial Telephone/Skype/email consultation available, please contact to book.
Unfortunately I do not offer couples counselling at this time

I also offer:
Sometimes we find comfort in possessions, and those possessions can take many forms.
Sometimes we struggle to throw things away because it feels like a part of who we are.
Sometimes we buy things that we don't need but love the thrill of the purchasing experience.
We all have things that have a value, whether that's financially or emotionally, but when this affects our ability to live, to use the rooms in the house or to socialise at home it begins to be a problem.
To start with, we just have a conversation about what you are looking for with regard to helping you with your hoard.
Then, we meet, either at your home or my workspace at the Business Box and we talk some more about what your possessions mean to you.
Then, we agree a plan on how we will work together to help you achieve your goal and subsequent meetings would need to be at your home.
This service, as with all my therapy is confidential.
I am Hoarding UK trained and follow their program of 12 weekly appointments, 12 fortnightly appointments and 3 monthly appointments (where required). All visits are 90 minutes.
