About me and my therapy practice

 

Hello, I am a warm and compassionate counsellor and mindfulness practitioner, who has a real enthusiasm for helping individuals work through their emotional issues and personal difficulties towards resolution and healing, to improve well-being and make positive changes in their lives. 

Living in a busy stressful world we can struggle day to day with our emotional issues, leaving us feeling exhausted, misunderstood, low, anxious, alone and overwhelmed with our thoughts, issues and personal challenges. 

Making the decision to see a counsellor can be really daunting,  my aim is to support you through your counselling journey by creating a safe, calm and confidential space for you to talk freely about your difficulties, where you will be listened to, understood with sensitivity, without being judged.
 

Practice description

My counselling approach is person-centred, which means I collaboratively work with you to explore your issues at your own safe pace, help you gain a better understanding, discover your strengths and encourage you to develop new ways of coping, so that you are more independent, resourceful and resilient.

I can also incorporate CBT tools and techniques, which can help you identify and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours, in order to develop positive changes.

You may want to learn about mindfulness and meditation, where I can show you how to cultivate moment-to-moment awareness with less judgment and more self-compassion, which can improve your emotional well-being and promote living more mindfully.

With greater self-awareness, self-trust and self-confidence, you will be able to make positive steps to a more satisfying and meaningful life.

 

My first session

I offer a 20 minute initial telephone consultation which is free without obligation.

First counselling session fee is £30, which is an opportunity for you to see if you feel comfortable and happy to work with me as your counsellor.

After the first session, counselling sessions are £45 per session (50 minutes).

Next Steps: Please contact me on 07707 062481 to book your free without obligation 20 minute initial telephone consultation.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Kind regards

Amanda
