I’m Amy, I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker. I am passionate about supporting people across all developmental stages with their emotional, social and mental health, and I believe that therapy can offer a wonderful platform for self-discovery and personal growth.
I love adventures with my dog Pepperoni, being in nature and going on camping trips. I also enjoy learning, going to art galleries, taking photos and being creative.
I am committed to providing evidence-based approaches and am warm, non-judgemental and holistic in my approach. I utilise person centred, trauma informed and strengths based frameworks in my approach.
I draw upon a range of techniques, including, Mindfulness, Schema approaches, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative approaches.
I’ve had a range of roles in my career in areas such as youth work, community mental health, gender based violence, group work, learning and development, drug and alcohol, leadership, management, counselling, crisis intervention, homelessness and private practice.

I am a provisional psychologist and final year Master of Clinical Psychology candidate.
I work with children and teenagers who might be experiencing depression, anxiety, and issues with their self-esteem or relationships with other people, their bodies, and themselves.
I used to be an actor, so I like to keep a bit of creativity in my life – I’m currently writing a book (…very slowly!). I also love reading (especially fantasy and sci-fi), films, exploring new places far and wide, and playing with my greyhound who is very cute and silly.
My approach to therapy is warm, open, and honest, creating a space where young people can be themselves without judgement, even if they’re not sure who they are yet. I draw on evidence-based techniques including CBT and mindfulness, adapting them to the needs of whoever is in the room including parents/carers. This means sessions might include games, drawing, or other play-based activities. Therapy goals are always co-created with the young person, aiming to support them to flourish in their unique way.
‘’I believe that a supportive, collaborative therapeutic relationship is the key to creating positive change that can ripple throughout a young person’s life.’’

I am committed to supporting children to express and explore themselves in the best way they know how – through play. I understand that each child and family’s therapeutic journey is unique and that it should be treated as such with the upmost respect and dignity.
Together we can work through difficulties including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, peer problems, bullying, bereavement, coping with the new dynamics of a parent separation, challenging behaviours, attention difficulties, emotional dysregulation, abuse and/or trauma, to name a few!
A little bit about myself! When I’m not working, I’m usually home running around with my two dogs, or curling up on the couch watching some Netflix or reading a book. My latest project is in the garden, creating a veggie patch!

The Owner of The Therapy Hub.
Welcome. I help teenagers and young adults who want to be happy, confident and live a meaningful life. Sometimes we’re weighed down by anxiety, stress, depression or trauma. Issues with school, work, relationships, identity, and/or self-esteem can make life difficult to enjoy. This can often leave us feeling stuck.
Life can be tough. I totally understand, and I’m here to help. Together we’ll figure out who you are, who you want to be, and how to get you there. I incorporate a range of techniques such as ACT, CBT, EMDR and mindfulness in my work to support you in this process.
What else can I tell you about myself? I’m a little bit of a nerd and don’t take myself too seriously – life’s too short! I’m your classic animal lover, especially dogs. I really love the great outdoors – hiking and camping (expect I hate mosquitoes!)
My approach to therapy is direct, yet genuine and supportive. I have a sense of humour about myself, and I encourage my clients to adopt the same attitude. I am incredibly enthusiastic and I am excited to work together and create meaningful and lasting change in your life.
Everything we talk about is just between the people in the room (unless there are safety concerns, I’ll explain all that to you in our first session). Think of me as your trusted confidant. Someone who is ready to listen, never judge – but to also be honest with you in order to bring forward positive change
‘’I’m 100% invested in this process. I am passionate about helping people feel understood and heard. Overcome past painful experiences and helping couples and families increase connection with one another.’’
