Amy Rodgers (BA Hons, MSc Counselling Psychology, MBACP)
Hi, my name is Amy and I am a fully qualified counsellor. We can all find life a struggle at times, and talking can help to find a way forward. I can offer you a safe and confidential space to talk through any issues or problems you may be experiencing.
I know from my own experience that it can feel daunting to make initial contact with a counsellor. If talking on the phone feels too much, it is fine to text me, get in touch on my social media pages, or simply email me directly from this page. We can exchange messages, or have a chat, prior to arranging a meeting. Making the first step is a big thing, but sometimes taking that leap can feel like the right thing to do, for you.
I feel counselling works best when we meet on a weekly, or fortnightly, basis. There are no restrictions on how many sessions therapy can last. Some people find one or two sessions is enough for them, and other people prefer to meet for longer. I am totally open to working with you as an individual, getting to know you and your requirements.
I have many years experience working within bereavement and loss counselling. I find this often brings with it other issues, such as anxiety, depression, stress, family related issues. Grief touches us all at some point, and this is why it is so close to my heart.
Please do get in touch if you feel you want to talk about the things that are troubling you. I can offer sessions with very little waiting times, often within just a few days. I also offer reduced rates for students.
Due to the current situation, I am working remotely, meaning our sessions will take place my video or telephone. This is for your safety and mine. As soon as I am able, I will be doing face to face sessions again. Hopefully in the not too distant future.

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.
