Hi there! I’m Amanda, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be a part of the incredible team at Family and Therapy. As a dedicated and fully qualified counselor, I’m registered with the BACP, bringing a wealth of experience to my work with clients in both the charity sector and my private practice nestled in the heart of Swansea. My ultimate goal is to be a positive force, fostering transformative journeys for individuals aged between 13 and 85 years old.

At the heart of my therapeutic approach lies a person-centered integrative method. I believe in tailoring each session to the unique needs of my clients, utilizing a diverse set of tools to ensure a holistic and effective therapeutic experience. The first step into therapy can be daunting, and I strive to create an environment that not only exudes professionalism but is also genuinely friendly and warm. I firmly believe that a welcoming atmosphere is the key to building trust and rapport, crucial elements in the therapeutic process.

My professional journey has been an enriching exploration, involving work in challenging areas such as bereavement, menopause, anxiety, depression, and trauma. Additionally, I’ve dedicated meaningful time to making a positive impact on the lives of teenagers aged between 14 and 17 through my work in a Pupil Referral Unit. This experience has granted me a unique perspective on the challenges faced by young individuals, further influencing and enhancing my practice.

In my ongoing commitment to personal and professional growth, I’ve recently expanded my reach to conduct mental health workshops tailored specifically for parents. These workshops, spanning four weeks, delve into the intricate connection between parental wellbeing and family dynamics. Together with parents, we explore practical strategies for incorporating self-care into their lives, even with the responsibilities of a family to nurture. The workshops serve as a safe space for parents to become more attuned to their own warning signs for burnout and equip them with tools to manage anxiety and depression effectively.

My passion for supporting individuals on their journey to mental and emotional well-being extends beyond the confines of the therapy room. I am deeply committed to creating spaces where individuals can not only heal but also flourish. Each day, I draw inspiration from the resilience and courage of my clients, and it is truly my privilege to walk alongside them as they navigate the complexities of their lives.

In conclusion, my multifaceted experience, warm approach, and unwavering commitment to ongoing learning and development make me a dedicated ally for those seeking support on their path to healing and growth. I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to connect, learn, and passionately collaborate on your unique journey toward a more fulfilling and balanced life.
