Amy Launder; Reg. BACP, BSc, MA
CURRENTLY OFFERING ALL SESSION ONLINE.
Life can be messy and very rarely goes to plan. Sometimes it can take us down difficult paths, and sometimes it can feel like it is stuck completely. I work with clients to explore what it is that is blocking their path or how they can navigate through these tricky times.
Often, things that have happened in the past can affect how we think and behave in the present. I focus on the client's present and past as a way of helping the client to notice patterns in their behaviour or thought processes that might be unwanted.
I am an intersubjective psychotherapist, meaning that I focus on the relationship between myself and the client in order to help the client to remove barriers that are standing in their path. I also use an integrative approach, slightly tailoring my approach to the client or issue at hand.
Therapy can seem to be a daunting process as it can often seem to be addressing only the negative aspects of what life throws at us, however I often encourage clients to notice their own strengths and coping mechanisms, emphasising the client's innate ability to cope with life's curveballs. Many of us never look back at how far we have come, only looking forward at the mountain we now must climb. Looking back doesn't have to be negative, it can remind us of how far we have come and how we got to where we are today.
I have a BSc in Psychology, a graduate certificate in Counselling, and a Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling. I have previously worked with adults of all ages, within both an NHS and school setting, who have brought a range of issues including;
- Childhood trauma
- And many more
If you feel like counselling is right for you, the next step would be to contact me via email. We can arrange an initial session in which we will discuss what is bringing you to counselling and how counselling will work between us. There is no obligation to continue counselling with me after the initial session. However, if you would like to work together, we can arrange further sessions within the initial meeting.

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.
