About me

Hello, I am Amy and a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor working with Adults and Young People (ages 12-18), offering face to face or online therapy.

In a world that can sometimes feel confusing, stressful, anxiety-provoking and overwhelming, it is no wonder that things can feel challenging.​

Whatever is going on for you, no matter how you are feeling, I welcome you to come as you are.

My therapeutic style is relational, I consider myself to be approachable and friendly with respect and empathy at the heart of my work. I offer an open and non-judgemental space for you to reconnect with your true self.

My intention is to facilitate a safe environment in which you have the space and time to gain greater understand and self-awareness, that will allow you to grow in confidence and self-worth so that life’s decisions and challenges feel less daunting and overwhelming.

Training, qualifications & experience

Alongside my private practice, I am employed as a young person counsellor at a charity organisation in Bristol.

I am also a volunteer counsellor for a local charity where I work with adults.

I have experience working with anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, trauma, abuse, childhood trauma, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
