Amy Benson MBACP (Accred)
Having the courage to discuss what's troubling you with a counsellor can be a really hard thing to do, so I'd like to reassure you that no matter what you bring to counselling, I will treat you with warmth and respect, and without judgment. I can offer you an opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings together, in confidence, going at a pace you feel comfortable with. The therapeutic relationship offers a unique space in which you can get to know yourself in a richer, clearer and more compassionate way. Armed with this increased understanding, you will find that your relationship with yourself - the most important relationship you have - becomes stronger and more loving, which is likely to have a positive impact on all areas of your life.
I am a fully qualified counsellor/psychotherapist with experience in the NHS, with young adults in a university health centre and within private practice. My training is integrative, which means I can draw on a range of therapeutic skills to best suit your needs. I am an accredited member of the British Association For Counselling And Psychotherapy and I adhere to its Ethical Framework.
There are many reasons why people come to counselling. Issues that I frequently work with include (but are not limited to) depression, anxiety, relationship problems, mid-life crises, parenting concerns, low self-esteem, bereavement & loss, coping with a medical diagnosis, and difficulty managing anger. But some people seek counselling without a label for what's troubling them - for example frequent low mood without knowing the cause, a sense of hopelessness, a struggle for purpose and meaning, an awareness that they are repeating the same mistakes over again, or a general feeling that their life is simply not the way they would like it to be.
Talking helps, and counselling really can make a huge difference. Why not come for a chat and see how we can work together to help you.
