Amy Norris Dip.Couns (MBACP)
Hi, my name is Amy and I am a BACP registered counsellor based in Farnham. I am an integrative counsellor which means I work in different ways in order to fit the needs of each individual client. I work with both adults and young people from 16 years old.
Counselling is a way for you to talk through challenging and uncomfortable issues that you may feel are affecting your everyday life. I believe nobody knows you better than yourself and therefor my role as a counsellor is not about giving you advice or telling you what to do, but about providing you with the opportunity to explore your concerns in a confidential space and free from judgement.
Finding the right counsellor for you to work with can help you to feel safe, supported and accepted which will enable you to open up and express your thoughts and feelings. This can be empowering and enable positive change and progress in your life. I work in a supportive and collaborative way, where you the client are the focus of the sessions.
I am able to work with a range of issues including stress, anxiety, relationships, depression, self-harm, sexuality, identity and work related issues among others.
This process may not always be an easy one and taking this first step in finding the right counsellor for you is a big decision. I feel that taking this step can be a hugely beneficial experience in moving towards feeling more fulfilled and gaining a deeper understanding of yourself.
Please contact me by email or phone and we can discuss how counselling might be a beneficial step forward for you.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
