About Amanda

It's my goal to create a comfortable, safe environment, where we'll work towards making positive changes

I’m passionate about counselling because of my own life experiences.  I began my journey recovering from childhood trauma, domestic violence, anxiety, depression and post-natal depression.  I recovered through many hours of personal therapy, courses, books and plenty of self care, all of which led me to qualify as a counsellor myself.  I learned so much on my journey – to feel comfortable in my own shoes is priceless.  People often don’t realise that you don’t have to continue to live with difficulty – you can feel powerful again, change is possible.  I want to share what I’ve learned and help others to recover and live life fully and in the way that you deserve.

I’m a CPCAB qualified Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I run a private practice in Watford offering short term goal focussed counselling as well as longer term analytical psychotherapy.

I specialise in mental health having worked for many years for mental health charities (Herts Mind Network, Mind and The New Leaf College) both counselling and writing courses, in addition to delivering wellbeing courses such as anxiety management, mindfulness and post-natal depression. I also work with couples providing relationship therapy.

I remember how dauting it can feel to walk into that therapy room, to look at yourself and face topics that you may have avoided out of self preservation for a long time.  Once the first session is done and you realise that it wasn’t as scary as you thought, actually it can feel quite exciting to begin that journey.

It’s important to me that you feel safe within therapy so that we can do the best possible work together. I create a therapy for your unique needs. One size doesn’t fit all. Some like it as simply a space to be heard, others may like the more analytic, proactive psychotherapy approach.  We work together to make sure that you’re getting the best out of therapy.

Whatever your reason for coming to therapy, I provide a safe and supportive environment with a gentle, confidential, listening ear.

Be brave, take that first step in the right direction to take control of your life. Make positive changes and support you in moving forward. Counselling can’t take the away the past, but it can take the power out of the memories.  Leaving you at peace, to help you become more self-aware and grow as a person, to become stronger than ever before.

Just imagine feeling comfortable in your own shoes…

Counselling and Psychotherapy

It’s an innate human need to belong, have community and to have nourishing, respectful, equal and reciprocal relationships.  Its even more of a need to live authentically and live a peaceful life.  We all have a presenting self, but when we feel one way on the inside and its far from what we show on the outside, it causes great conflict.  Therapy can help to align your authentic self and make sure that your needs are being met in all areas of your life.
