About Me

My name is Amanda Thomas and I offer counselling to Adults, Young People and children.  As well as working face to face, I can also offer telephone counselling to Adults.  I am based in Torquay, but can also offer sessions in Totnes, Devon.

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.

Under BACP guidelines I attend supervision and regular CPD.
