About Me

My name is Amanda Thomas and I offer counselling to Adults and young people (age 10+).  I have  been a counsellor now for  over ten years.  I have worked in various settings which has given me a huge amount of knowledge and experience.    I enjoy my work emensly and have learnt so much from the various  clients that I have seen over the years.  Sometimes there can be tears or anger, but also laughter too.  I always endeavour to be the best counsellor I can and this includes attending regular training, supervisions and being curious about all things mental health.  

As well as working face to face, I can also offer telephone counselling to Adults. Although some people prefer a face to face session, for some it offers flexibility.  Online and telephone counselling can be as affective as face to face, but it does not suit everyone.  

I believe that you have the ability to make positive changes in your life, and that you can develop a clearer understanding of your difficulties and how to overcome them if you are shown empathy, compassion and a non-judgemental approach. This is the foundation of my approach as a counsellor..   

I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I abide by their Principles and Ethics. The BACP is a principle body of counselling and psychotherapy and looks to ensure that counsellors are adequately qualified and abide by their Code of Ethics, ensuring a high standard of professional practice. Under BACP guidelines I attend supervision and regular CPD. I have completed my application for accreditation and am now waiting for the result - so fingers crossed!
