About me and my therapy practice

Amanda Fyfe MA PGCE DipFE MBACP

Person-Centred Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor

I am a BACP registered counsellor and Mindfulness practitioner with extensive knowledge of working with adults and young people aged 11-18 years old. I have worked in the field of mental health and education for nearly 30 years and have worked clinically with counselling clients for over 4 years.

I offer three services:

Counselling for Chronic Pain

Humanistic Counselling

Clinical Supervision

I am offering a service for clients with chronic pain combining Humanistic Counselling with Mindfulness Techniques. This intensive therapy teaches the client to analyse the pain and find solutions to the discomfort. As the mind investigates the pain, the client can begin to understand why it occurs, what triggers it and how it can be soothed and reduced. The client can learn to acknowledge the pain and listen for the ‘roots’ of the problem and build capacity for self-management. The techniques used will help the client in chronic pain to understand how stress and anxiety can significantly amplify the pain. They will then develop new ways of thinking and coping to re-establish a sense of control and emotional resilience.

Humanistic Counselling

I am a person-centred counsellor with experience of working in schools, for charities and in the private and voluntary sector.

I am able to offer a safe supportive space where clients are free to explore personal thoughts and feelings. My role is to help clients through this process without judgement or direction, to help clients to build capacity for self-management and re-establish a sense of control and emotional resilience. Clients are able to go at their own pace and together we can identify themes, work through blockages and understand how wider influences or patterns of thoughts and behaviours may be maintaining anxious or depressed feelings.

Clinical Supervision

I offer clinical supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors as well as healthcare and education professionals. I use Hawkins and Shohet’s relational and systemic Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision. Supervision focuses on the relationships between the client, counsellor and supervisor and the connections and interplay between each relationship and their context within the wider system. I emphasise the importance of contemplation and reflection and cultivating and refining the skills and abilities to search for new choices and possibilities. I try to create a climate where the dynamics and creativity of the work can be fully explored generating more independent, inspired and resourceful Supervisees.
