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)

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.
