About me

I am an accredited, integrative therapist providing therapy to individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their personal or work life such as anxiety, depression, stress, work related stress, low self esteem, relationship issues, disordered eating, bereavement, trauma and abuse.

I offer a non-judgemental, confidential, safe space to explore the things which are causing you distress to help you understand your own process, thoughts and emotions and how they impact your life.  I incorporate CBT techniques, trauma stablilisation and psycho-education into my practice to help you understand your own processes.

I have extensive experience working with male and female adults with a variety of issues within the Blue Light services helping to overcome traumatic experiences, anxiety, depression and stress.  I have a deep understanding of the professional and personal impacts of working within emergency services and of the trauma which accompanies those roles.  I am trained in EMDR to explore trauma and help you resolve and process your beliefs about yourself or a specific incident(s).

My goal is to ensure all individuals I work with, therapeutically progress in the way they want to, to build a safe and solid alliance and allow them to feel seen, heard and understood.  I am passionate about and believe in the power of therapy and how transformative it can be.

I understand how daunting it may feel trying to find the right therapist for you.  I am a client-lead therapist,  I will go at your pace and we can identify the areas you want to focus on which will be of most benefit to you and your life going forward.

I work from a Person Centred foundation incorporating Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques and EMDR to help you therapeutically progress.

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I practice within the safety of its framework.  I work online  via the Teams platform.

If you would like to speak further and establish if you feel we could work together, please email me.

Following emailing me, I will contact you for a free 20 minute informal telephone call, to talk more about the problems you face and if I could help you, for you to ask me any questions you have about my work and if we both feel we could work together.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

"Amy was very knowledgeable in her field of expertise and the whole process felt personal to me."

"Amy has been so kind, genuine and thoughtful throughout all of my struggles.  She always put me first and it never felt like she was just doing a job."

"Therapy allowed me to be open and honest, something which I know I wouldn't have done by myself.  I found it so much easier to speak to someone who didn't know me on a personal level."

"Being able to speak about my problems allowed me to spend time on working out where they stemmed from or what triggered them which in turn helped me to develop strategies to change things for the better."

"Amy did not rush anything, everything was at my pace.  If it wasn't for Amy, I wouldn't like to think of the path I might have taken.  I cannot thank her enough."
