About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Amanda and I offer online therapy and online coaching to individuals.

I am based in the North West of England but working online allows me the flexibility to work with clients from across the UK and internationally. 

You may be considering counselling for a number of reasons. You perhaps want support in moving forward from a difficult, potentially traumatic, experience which has occurred in your past, or you may be dealing with something in the present, for example relationship issues, a stressful working environment or a bereavement.

The world we live in can be high pressured and fast paced, not allowing us time to reflect and process our experiences.  Counselling allows you that time, and my experience has shown this to be hugely beneficial to the vast majority of clients I have been fortunate to sit with.

When considering counselling, clients can often feel nervous and unsure, particularly if this will be their first experience of counselling.  Know that you are not alone.  I offer a 15 minute telephone consultation before any work we do begins, this is in order for you to ask any questions you may have. It also allows you the opportunity to begin to understand if I am the right counsellor for you, or if in fact that counselling is not something you wish to proceed with at the present time.

I am able to help with a wide range of issues but have particular experience of working with bereavement having volunteered at the Liverpool Bereavement Service for two years. Additionally as part of an MA in Clinical Counselling I have completed research on those that feel suicidal.

I aim to answer all emails in one working day, please check your junk mailbox for replies. 


Practice description

Why Online Counselling?

For many people accessing traditional face to face therapy is difficult for many reasons; childcare, mobility issues, geography and limited time to name a few. It can also be quite daunting to attend counselling face to face and for some people they find it easier to share their feelings and thoughts with their counsellor when they are not in the same physical location. Generally, sessions take place somewhere the client is familiar with and feels safe in, rather than attending an office or the counsellor’s therapy room which may be at their home.

Other benefits to online counselling include:

Access to a wider range of therapists, not just the people in your local area.

Greater convenience in attending appointments as you can attend wherever you are as long as the space is confidential.

Accessibility

My first session

Typically in your first session I will ask you to talk to me about what has brought you to counselling; you can ask any questions you may have about how we will work together and, if it would be helpful for you, to discuss what you would like from our sessions. You may not know this initially and that’s ok. If you decide to continue, subsequent sessions will allow you the space and time to explore your issue(s) further and through working together enable you to find the best way forward.
