About me

Hi I'm Amy,

I offer face to face counselling as well as online via zoom or over the telephone whichever is most suitable for you. I can offer a comfortable and confidential room in Sittingbourne where I will met with you in person.   

I am a person-centred counsellor and will be there to listen without judgement, in a client focused way to help you to explore your feelings, past experiences and help you understand more about yourself at your own pace. I am a member of BACP,  have a diploma in therapeutic counselling level 4 and work with people over 16 years old.

Equality is important to me, I provide a safe and accepting space for all. I have experience in supporting people with difficulties such as abuse, bereavement, OCD, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, panic attacks, understanding sexuality, victims of crime, families of those undergoing gender transition and many more. 

Counselling can be the first steps to empowering yourself to overcome what may be worrying you. I look forward to meeting you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
