Hi, my name's Amanda and I help people recover from trauma. Complex trauma in childhood can cause many ongoing issues and affect emotional and social wellbeing well into adulthood. Complex Trauma or CPTSD can often remain hidden - even from the person who has it. People with this kind of trauma will normally blame themselves for their problems. These problems often manifest in issues such as *depression *anxiety *sleep problems *anger and overwhelming emotions * problems with intimacy and relationships *ongoing feelings of worthlessness and shame. Trauma Counselling can help free you from your pain and create a life worth living.

My aim as a therapist is to help you understand more about yourself and your inner life. I will help you pay attention to your body and emotions, providing an empathetic and non-judgemental presence to help you experience your internal world safely. As you become more familiar with your emotions, you will discover more self-compassion and find peace.

My background is in social work and in visual art and I use art to help people who have experienced trauma to find non-verbal ways to express themselves. This can help when they don't know how to talk about their emotions and what is going on for them.
