Amy Launder Psychotherapist and Counsellor

Psychotherapist and Counsellor

Life can be messy and very rarely goes to plan. Sometimes it can take us down difficult paths, and sometimes it can feel like it is stuck completely. Amy works with clients to explore what it is that is blocking their path or how they can navigate through these tricky times.

Often, things that have happened in the past can affect how we think and behave in the present. Amy focuses on the client’s present and past as a way of helping the client to make notice patterns in their behaviour or thought processes that might be unwanted.

Amy is an intersubjective psychotherapist, meaning that she focuses on the relationship between herself and the client in order to help the client to remove barriers that are standing in their path. She also uses an integrative approach, slightly tailoring her approach to the client or issue at hand.

Therapy can seem to be a daunting process as it can often seem to be addressing only the negative aspects of what life throws at us, however Amy often encourages clients to notice their own strengths and coping mechanisms, emphasising the client’s innate ability to cope with life’s curveballs. Many of us never look back at how far we have come, only looking forward at the mountain we now must climb. Looking back doesn’t have to be negative, it can remind us of how far we have come and how we got to where we are today.

Amy has a BSc in Psychology, a graduate certificate in Counselling, and a Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling. She has previously worked with adults of all ages, within both an NHS and school setting, who have brought a range of issues including;

•Depression
•Bereavement
•Stress
•Anxiety
•Childhood trauma
•Abuse
•Anger
•Disability
•Unemployment
•Illness
•Self-esteem
•And many more

If you feel like therapy with Amy is something that you want to explore, the next stage would be to come in for an initial appointment. Within this initial appointment, we would discuss what has brought you to therapy, why now, and what you hope to achieve through coming to therapy. We would also explore how you and I would work together, whether it is long-term, short-term, or open ended. Finally, this initial session will give us both an opportunity to get a sense of each other, and give you a chance to decide whether you would like to continue working together.
