About me

Sometimes we tend to feel buried by our problems. Perhaps you have been planted, and it's time to bloom.

What can therapy with me offer you? Freedom to be you and to feel no judgement as well as being truly heard. Being validated and understood in therapy in a safe place can help you find yourself and my aim is to work with you to look at different areas of your life. I work in an integrative and relational way and offer intervention using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Theory and Person-centred.

I have worked largely with anxiety, depression, low confidence, low self-esteem, negative critical voice, perfectionism, loss, anger management, emotional unavailability, burnout, shame, stress and family issues. I have particular experience working with clients who have experienced trauma, domestic abuse and violence, relationship problems, dysfunctional family relationship issues and adapt and tailor my sessions to the individual and the presenting problem. I have experience with those who haven't had counselling before, those who find it hard to open up about their feelings, and also those that may have experienced difficulties in therapy before. 

I have worked with clients in a school and college setting as well as a women's refuge and Mind Charity. I have links to the NHS Talking Therapies Service in Staffordshire, Mind Charity Burton District and have connections to mental health services in Derbyshire.

I offer a free telephone conversation assessment in order for you to decide if you would like to work with me and what therapy goals could be set. Therapy is personal and I want to ensure you are comfortable to work with me so we can be collaborative in the sessions.

Client Testimonials:

'My experience of the counselling has been so positive.  You helped me realise things in my life, that I had unresolved grief over my dad, I was burned out at work etc. and then gave me great support and the tools to deal with them. I am so thankful that I reached out for support in the first place, and you have been a massive part in me feeling like I have turned my mental health around.  I feel much more able going forward to deal with whatever life has in store and knowing that counselling has helped me so much in the last year is a huge reason for that.'

'Its help me understand why I am the way I am, connecting the dots and why i'm approaching things a certain way.'

'I felt listened to by Amy and I appreciated the sessions and how she made me feel in them. I hadn't had counselling before so it has left me feeling more positive.'

'Amy is a brilliant counsellor and I’ve got a lot out of our sessions. I can tell she really enjoys her role and made me think about things more deeply than I expected.'

'Working with Amy had a huge impact on my life. I found out things about myself, why and who I was as a person. Lots of pieces of jig saws all fell in to place which made so much sense why I had taken the path I had in my life. Throughout my sessions Amy always listened and made me feel at ease. Amy always made sure I was ok at the end of the session. I would highly recommend her, I can’t thank her enough for her support.'

'Been interesting filling in things each week to see how i'm feeling compared to the last – I can see myself improving even though I don’t see it at straight away. Nice to get ideas in how I can take things forward and cope with my issues better.'

'Feel like its given me clarity in my head – don’t feel burdened with everything. Beneficial to have someone who is separate to my life.'

'Felt really comfortable doing the sessions, very personal to me and I felt treated like an individual.'

'It has helped me, made me very aware of my family issues, brought things to the surface. I understand my feelings better. Its made me realise things within my behaviour and how to move forward in a positive way.'

'I really feel that our sessions have helped me through a difficult time and feel that I can now put my emotions into perspective.'

Member organisations

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.
