Hi, I am Amy Copland and I am a qualified counsellor with a Masters in Counselling from The College of New Jersey.
I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP level) and also a registered member of the American Counselling Association.
I have experience using a variety of counselling techniques and having lived internationally for almost my entire career, I ensure that I take cultural perspectives into account in my practice.
Having people put their trust in me to help support them or their children to overcome barriers, trauma or challenges and to help them work towards achieving their potential, is the best job I could ever hope for.
I am also a member of the Chi Sigma Iota Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society (CSI), holding my membership through the Alpha Epsilon Chapter at The College of New Jersey by invitation for academic and professional performance.
Even before I became a counsellor, I was always in the helping profession and engaged in a significant amount of service/charitable work. Helping others to find a way to fulfil their potential and be proud of who they are has always been what inspires and motivates me.

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).
