About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Amanda. I am a Humanistic counsellor, providing short and long-term therapy. I am fully qualified and a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy).

How I work

You might be in the midst of a crisis, experiencing confusing feelings or wanting to focus on a specific issue, I am able to provide a safe, calm, and confidential setting in which your thoughts and feelings can be discussed free from judgment or prejudice.

I am a genuine, warm, honest, and empathic person and I fully acknowledge the courage it takes in seeking someone to be open and talk with. My focus is to understand your outer and inner world, what makes you who you are. Working in a relational way, I focus on connecting with you and building our relationship. We can work together to explore your difficulties, with the aim of opening up new choices and options. You may have something specific you would like to address, or you might not be sure of what is getting in your way and just need the space and time to figure things out.

I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is central to the success of therapy. Values I hold are a search for meaning, focusing on feelings, development of relationships with yourself and others, and an innate drive towards self-actualization, creativity, and holism.

There are many reasons why someone might come to therapy. I have worked with clients on a range of different problems and concerns. Whether you want to explore painful past events in your life or the uncertainty you are feeling about what the future might hold, therapy can provide a confidential place to talk about your concerns.
