Ama is an experienced, creative and compassionate adult Integrative Pysychotherapist working in Brighton and Hove and Devon. She has 20 years of mental health experience working as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor in private practice as well as working in and for organisations with adults and children, with particular experience within academic and social care settings.
Ama is particularly adept at being alongside people whatever their circumstances. She believes the relationship between client and therapist is at the heart of the work and provides a safe, confidential and nurturing relationship which facilitates an exploration of peoples more vulnerable, difficult or new parts of themselves.
Ama uses Integrative Psychotherapy to address a range of difficulties from a general sense of unease and lack of fulfilment to more pressing experiences of stress, low mood, fear and pain. She has a particular though not exclusive specialism working with psychosomatic distress and all those affected by adoption and uses a trauma informed approach.
Ama offers both time limited and open ended psychotherapy with a focus on reducing suffering and finding ways to a less troubled and more rewarding life.
She is currently working remotely during covid 19 using either online or telephone appointments and has a wealth of experience in working in this way.
