Amanda Sanford

MBACP Dip. HE Humanistic Counselling

Are you experiencing a change, transition or have come to a realisation about yourself or your life?

You may feel stuck, have anxiety or feel overwhelmed with a lot on your shoulders and be looking for someone who can listen to your story with acceptance and warmth.

I’m Amanda, a Humanistic counsellor (MBACP) with Wednesday evening sessions available in Haslemere for adults and young people from age 16.

As well as person-centred talking therapy, I use creative tools to help with exploring thoughts and feelings that are hard to find words for. These tools can assist change in short-term counselling or help to explore at more depth for longer term psychotherapy.
I’m offering free consultation for clients to discuss their needs and find out more about me and availability.

I have experience counselling clients in a charitable service supporting adults with complex issues surrounding abuse, change and relational issues, previous childhood adverse experiences, neglect, and intergenerational trauma. With a background in education I have experience of supporting individuals with special educational needs and difference for whom learning other than at school may be a better fit. I have an understanding of related personal and social issues for young people and adults for whom school and relationships were a source of stress.
