Amy utilises ACT, solution focused principles and mindfulness skills to create meaningful and lasting change.

What to Expect?

Whether training, counselling or coaching Amy approaches each session with warmth, humour and practical insights into human behaviour. You choose the service and frequency that suits to get the results you want.

1. Improved self-awareness and clarity

We work together to give you a clear understanding of how your thoughts, feelings and behaviour interconnect so you can choose helpful responses  rather than reacting in habitual ways.

2. Greater flexibility of thinking

We assist you to recognize stuck and unhelpful patterns of thinking and replace them with thinking that will move you towards your goals.

3. Improved ability to manage emotions

We teach the psychological skills to recognize, validate and manage difficult and painful emotions so you feel more centered and able to cope.

4. Strategies to manage difficult situations

We explore issues from different perspectives to give you fresh insights and greater ability to generate options to move forward confidently.  

5. Clearer sense of purpose and greater ability to act in line with values

We help you to get clear on what matters most to you and which values drive you so that you can be confident to take action.

Better relationships using the power of presence

Better relationships using the power of presence

One of the most effective ways to deepen and strength your relationships is through the power of your presence. I am not talking about simply being there in the physical sense, but actually being present.  Undistracted –  completely in the present.  Your sole purpose in that moment is to be with someone fully – to encourage them to be fully seen and heard.  This is a powerful practice of giving and receiving attention and fuelling better connection.  It is the very foundation of warmth and connection between human beings.
