Amy Mottram Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor PG Dip BACP
Making the first move can be difficult and I understand that. Maybe you are struggling with something that is known to you such as a traumatic event/s or your unsure what the root cause of your distress is. I am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore, make sense of and resolve what it is your facing.
Hello and welcome to my page.
I am a practicing Integrative psychotherapist and counsellor based in Spilsby, Lincolnshire, within easy access of Boston, Louth, Horncastle and Skegness.
I work with individuals to resolve issues with long lasting solutions, promoting life enhancement. I offer sessions on an open ended basis or for an agreed number, dependent on what you feel suits you, the issues you face, their complexity and the solutions you seek.
People come into counselling and psychotherapy for a number of reasons; low self esteem, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, loss, abuse, anger, trauma, relational issues, loneliness and isolation.
Not everyone knows what is bothering them and that's ok. Maybe you are struggling to make sense of your experiences or who you are. Psychotherapy offers you the opportunity to explore and work through the difficulties you face; to think, feel, reflect, make connections and understand.
Once you have decided to explore the possibility of therapy I offer a short, free initial telephone conversation with no obligations. After this an initial assessment will be made. This time spent together will enable you to meet me, ask any questions and make the decision whether I am someone you would feel comfortable working with. This time will also give me the opportunity to explore with you what brings you to therapy, what your goals and hopes are, and to take a brief personal history so that together we can see if counselling or psychotherapy may be of benefit to you.
There is no pressure to make up your mind there and then about if you would like to continue, I will suggest you take some time to think about entering into a therapeutic relationship with me. Psychotherapy or counselling does not offer a magic wand and takes commitment.
What is Integrative Psychotherapy?
Integrative psychotherapy means I work with individuals to enable them to experience life and others in the fullest way for them. This approach enables me to draw on a blend of theories designed around what you may need and to help with the working through of issues. My approach is relational -developmental; I very much believe in the therapist client fit, that it is important I am the right therapist for you.
This also means what may be troubling you now can be seen within the context of your whole life, right back to your earliest relationships and experiences and the meaning they hold for you.
Within the therapeutic relationship I will be available for you with no agenda or pre-conceptions, to be with you in the working through of your troubles.
I strive to work with you to achieve your hopes and goals, whilst encouraging self-care and development in an honest, safe therapeutic relationship.
