About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Amy Skarratts. I am a CBT/Person Centred Counsellor. I have worked in various areas of Counselling from charities, to schools, on-line platforms and private practice.
I have extensive experience working with adults and young people presenting with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, PTSD, traumatic bereavement, grief, loss, abuse, relationship issues and low self-esteem. I understand that counselling is not a one-size fits all approach and that every person and their experience is unique to them.
I believe that every person has the power within to heal themselves and positively grow from their experiences to live fulfilling life; given the right environment and support to do so. I am here to help support, empower and provide you with the tools to do just that.
If you are ready to take some small steps towards actively healing and bring about positive change to your life, I would love to hear from you.
What other people have said: (Feedback)
"She’s really nice and professional, she’s open to different methods of communication which is really helpful!" AF March 2023
"Amy helped me come to my own conclusions about some difficult feelings I was having towards my sexuality and gave me the confidence to be honest with myself and those around me. Amy listened and provided her own reflections with compassion and care." LH Oct 2022
"I was apprehensive about speaking to a therapist before I spoke to Amy but I’m so thankful I did, there is zero judgement when you speak to Amy and she speaks to you with respect, empathy and understanding. Amy is also brilliantly patient and accommodating and I would recommend her to anyone." PD July 2021
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. I attend monthly counselling supervision and actively participate in Continuous Professional Development to ensure my practice is up to date.
I offer online and telephone counselling sessions
Each session will last for 50 minutes
Sessions are charged at £50 per 50 minute counselling session.
Payment for each session is to be made 48 hours prior to session commencing.
I understand that sometimes sessions need to be cancelled, should this occur within 24 hours of the session commencing full payment will be taken, however this is at my discretion.
My first session
It's very important in counselling that you connect with your therapist, therefore I offer a free 10 minute phone consultation which will hopefully enable you to decide should you wish to continue with myself and book an appointment for a full 50 minute session.
