About me
“The beautiful journey of today can only begin when we learn to let go of yesterday.” 
Steve Maraboli

Hello, my name is Amanda. I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based in Norwich, Norfolk. My integrative approach allows me to draw from different therapeutic theories based on the needs of my clients, instead of a one-size-fits all approach. My philosophy informs how I work with clients, I offer you a warm, safe, and judgement-free environment to help you to explore the issues that bring you to counselling. By coming to know more about yourself through counselling, we can work through your issues, concerns and worries, navigate beyond pain, and to help you with the skills to move forward in your life. Through healing from past experiences and learning effective coping strategies, you have the potential to develop more meaningful and healthy relationships, and create a more enriching and fulfilling life. 

My Background

I have experience working with young people having provided a counselling service for Great Yarmouth and Waveney MIND (Young People in MIND) where the age range was 18 to 24 and working with 14 to 18 year olds in a more informal ‘drop-in centre’ environment. I have also worked with 4Women Resource Centre in Norwich, providing a counselling service for women, particularly focusing on women who have faced social exclusion for a range of reasons including abuse, money, mental health, employment and offending. Alongside private practice, I work for Norwich MIND, offering counselling for clients with varied and complex issues and requirements. My previous professional background is in design, working creatively with systems and processes.
