Amy Hulse - MSc. Counselling Psychology, MBACP.
For almost 10 years I worked in roles helping to safeguard vulnerable children and their families. Several years ago I realised that I wanted to work with people more relationally and collaboratively so began to train as a counsellor. I have a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology and describe myself as a humanistic counsellor that leans towards a person-centred approach. This means that I believe, given the right conditions, we are all able to achieve growth.
I have a private practice which is based in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent and I offer face to face, telephone and online support to adults. Previously, I spent three three years working at a local hospice, the Douglas Macmillan Hospice as a volunteer bereavement counsellor. I have experience of working with a wide range of adults and the challenges that they face. I find that the impact of one experience is often intertwined with another and so, I avoid working with labels and instead focus on experiences and emotions as they present themselves.
I believe that the way we 'click' is integral to the success of our work and so I strive to nurture the counsellor/client relationship using warmth and empathy. If you think you would like to find out more, please visit my website or contact me using the information above. From this point, I will arrange a free introductory session where we will discuss the way I work and what you would like to achieve from counselling. If I seem to be the right fit, we will then make a schedule to suit your pace and budget.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and good luck for your journey.

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.
