About Amy-Louise

Tree of Life Counselling

Amy-Louise Underwood
 
Transactional Analysis Counsellor MBACP

Welcome, my name is Amy and I am a qualified Transactional Analysis counsellor registered with BACP and a member of UKATA.

My Approach
Counselling is about you, a safe place for you to talk.  Sadly I don’t have a magic wand, but what I do have, and create for you, is a caring, confidential, compassionate and supportive environment. I am there to listen without judgement, truly hear what is going on for you and how you feel.  


Every person is unique and I believe there is no set text book blueprint, so I use a variety of methods, techniques and safe simple strategies to support you and meet your individual needs.  Working together I will encourage you to notice and explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and sensations.

I will help you to understand your experiences and how they may impact on your daily life, and work together with you, to help you understand yourself better, to move forwards and make changes.
 

Life is not just about surviving, it’s about living, and my passion is to help each and every client thrive. Taking the first step can be scary but please know you are not alone.

My Specialisms

I offer individual counselling with adults and I work with couples on all types of issues but do have some specialisms including Trauma, abuse, PTSD, grief and anxiety. Find out more below:

My Background
I have always been passionate and enjoyed working with people. I volunteered for Barnardo’s working with young carers in groups and individually. I’ve worked with the Prince trust supporting young adults and been an assistant youth worker. 


Since qualifying, I’ve volunteered for 10 years. Counselling at Quetzal, with females recovering from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse, and at Leicester counselling centre, counselling adults experiencing a wide range of issues. I work as a crisis working providing emotional support to victims of rape and sexual abuse, working with males and females immediately after they have experienced the trauma and also those seeking help with historic abuse. 
 

I look forward to meeting you,

Amy-Louise Underwood.
