Amy works with families of young people with autism in a therapeutic way, helping them to support their young people and provide a space for them to address their own needs and issues. Sometimes this means simply providing a time and a space for parents and siblings to have a break from the daily stresses of their lives, and sometimes it may involve working more deeply with other issues that come up within the sessions. She also run groups that can being parents, and siblings, into contact with other people in similar situations and believes this type of support is paramount to coping challenging periods in our lives.
She works primarily in North London but the service will soon be expanding to cover a greater area with additional counsellors and therapists.
Amy has worked with children and young people on the autistic spectrum for the past 7 years, cherishing the opportunity to work with, and learn from each of them across a variety of settings. Alongside this she has been training as a psychotherapist at Regents College London and is currently working towards an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy. I also completed a short course in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
She is a member of the UKCP (United Kingdowm Council for Pychotherpay), BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychology) and the SEA (Society for Existential Analysis).
