Amy is a warm and experienced psychologist who loves to support and nurture her clients. Clients have described her as someone who is naturally compassionate, easy-going, has a lot of life experience, likes to have a laugh, and is non-judgemental.
She has a special interest in using EMDR to treat adults affected by simple and complex trauma (such as car accidents, medical procedures, birth trauma, sexual trauma, and childhood trauma). She is a member of EMDRAA and an EMDR ‘Consultant in Training’ (which basically means she has treated a significant number of clients with EMDR).
She has also a strong interest in working with adults from the neurodivergent population (e.g., ‘ADHD’, ‘ASD’ and ‘SPD’), and the anxiety and low mood that can result.
Amy works intuitively to offer a range of strategies and incorporates techniques from EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical and Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Compassion-Focussed Therapy and Schema Therapy.
She loves to work with clients over the long-term to make palpable and lasting changes to their self-worth and self-compassion.
Amy is a Buddhist and believes that all people are equal, no matter their gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, or religion. On a personal level, she is a mum of two boys, and is passionate about holistic health and the mind-body connection.
