Amanda has a strong commitment to evidence based therapies and is trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and mindfulness-based approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Amanda’s aim is to work collaboratively with clients in order to develop a shared understanding of the difficulties, identify and use strengths, learn new skills where needed and cultivate the conditions for resilience and courage in order to live wholeheartedly.


Amanda has considerable experience as a Principle Counselling Psychologist in adult mental health, both in NHS primary and secondary care settings. More recently she has worked in a personality disorder service delivering intensive treatment using DBT. Her areas of special interest and experience include anxiety, depression, difficulties with self-esteem and personality disorders. She has extensive experience working with clients with more longstanding difficulties and is particularly interested in the role of shame in the context of psychological distress. Before qualifying in counselling psychology, she worked for a number of years in business. This has given her a broader perspective on the challenges faced by many of my clients; the striving, the pressure to be and do better, often with less resource. She works in private practice and is a guest lecturer for several universities in the home counties. She is currently designing a program of skills for secondary schools to help students become their best self.
