About me and my therapy practice
Hi, my name is Amanda and I am a qualified counsellor based in South Liverpool. I offer a safe and confidential space where you can discuss whatever you may be struggling with in an environment where you will not be judged.
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 on the same day, please check your junk mailbox for replies.
My first sessionTypically 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.
