My name is Amanda Thomas and I offer counselling to Adults, Young People and children. As well as working face to face, I can also offer telephone counselling to Adults. I am based in Torquay, but can also offer sessions in Totnes, Devon.
I believe that you have the ability to make positive changes in your life, and that you can develop a clearer understanding of your difficulties and how to overcome them if you are shown empathy, compassion and a non-judgemental approach. This is the foundation of my approach as a counsellor.
I have experience and training in various areas of counselling including depression, anxiety, PTSD and phobias agmonst a few.
I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I abide by their Principles and Ethics. The BACP is a principle body of counselling and psychotherapy and looks to ensure that counsellors are adequately qualified and abide by their Code of Ethics, ensuring a high standard of professional practice. Under BACP guidelines I attend supervision and regular CPD.
