Clear Beginnings Therapy
When things may seem unmanageable, independent and skilled communication can bring about a sense of clarity; enabling us to view our situations from a new perspective.
My name is Amanda and I am an experienced counsellor offering appointments in Harrogate and Leeds. Both of my practices are of central location, just a short walk away from bus and train stations. Occasionally appointments are also available in Birstall.
I work with individuals and couples providing a safe and non-judgemental environment that will enable you to explore in confidence the issues you are finding problematic. Our time together will support you on your journey to overcome the issues which are causing you distress.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and work in accordance with their ethical framework.
Counselling sessions are usually held at my practices in Leeds or Harrogate- both are of central location and easily accessed by car, train or bus.
Why choose Counselling?
You may be considering therapy to help with issues you feel are difficult or overwhelming. It may be a past or present trauma, a relationship difficulty with a partner, family member, friend or colleague. You may feel stuck and unsure where to turn.
Confused, depressed or anxious; life at the moment may be a struggle. Speaking with someone who is a compassionate, independent and skilful listener may be your first step.
Areas of experience
I am able to offer both long and short-term therapy, and I have extensive experience in helping clients dealing with issues including:
I fully appreciate the courage it takes to talk about the difficulties you are experiencing, and I respect that taking the first step towards counselling can be a challenge. An initial phone call to discuss what's right for you may be the starting point.
As a Counsellor, I value your interests as a matter of prime importance; the element of trust within our relationship is paramount.
I am committed to keeping full confidentiality unless I feel there is any serious risk of harm to yourself or others. These limitations will be discussed further at our first session.
I look forward to hearing from you.
