Amy Cooper, PgDip, BABCP Accredited Psychotherapy and Counselling
What therapy do I offer?
I provide individual and couple therapy. I offer psychotherapy and counselling to help you better understand yourself, your situation or a problem you may be experiencing. During therapy, we work together to develop pathways towards a more positive outcome.
You may find the current pandemic has brought problems to the surface or intensified feelings or distress levels. I can offer support and help you work through the issues that arise.
What can you expect from me?
I aim to understand and connect with your experiences, while helping you work to resolve the issues you bring to therapy and to reach your desired outcome. I provide a supportive, respectful, and non-judgmental space to work within.

Areas of counselling I deal with
My fee per a therapy session is £45.
I have a limited number of appointments available at a reduced rate for people on a lower income or who are struggling financially. Please contact me if you would like further details.
Daytime and evenings appointments available. Saturday morning appointments also available.
If you are thinking about starting therapy, please contact me and we can arrange a no fee appointment lasting up to 30 minutes. During this appointment I will ask questions to get to know more about you and what you would like to get from coming to therapy. This will give you and I the opportunity to see if I am the right therapist for you.
If, after this initial meeting, we both decide I am the right therapist for you, we can book in a full session at a convenient day and time.
At present all therapy sessions are held online or via the telephone. Once it is safer to be face to face for a longer periods I will resume face to face sessions. If you wish to continue online or telephone work that is fine.
