Welcome

Are you feeling hopeless, low, anxious or lost? Struggling with imposter syndrome or overwhelmed?

I work with people who have lost that spark of hope or joy in their life and want some gentle help to get it back.


Together, we can find it again.

At the moment, I only have one weekly space becoming free from Tuesday 30th April (Tuesdays at 15:15). Please email to enquire about this space. When this changes and more spaces become available, I will update this website and my online directory profiles.

Home: Welcome


Hi, I'm Amy Scott - a BACP registered counsellor. Seeking support can feel really vulnerable so thank you for taking the time to look at my site - you're very welcome here. 


I believe that you deserve an approach to therapy that's as unique as you are. I never use 'a one size fits all approach.' Intead, I use an array of tools, approaches and theories, always working alongside you to find out what's best for you.

I'll offer you a calm, compassionate, non-judgemental space to explore whatever's on your mind. You might come to counselling with a very specific topic to discuss or you might not quite be able to put your finger on what you'd like support with. Either way, there's no right or wrong and I'd love to hear from you.

Finding the right counsellor for you is a really personal process so please feel free to explore my website, read my blogs and have a look at my social media pages if this helps you to feel more familiar with who I am and how I work.

How do I work?

I work online through a secure video platform, which means that I'm not bound by geography, although I currently only work with UK clients. I also offer 'in-person' counselling from my cosy city centre therapy room in Derby. 

I draw upon a range of techniques depending on the needs and preferences of the person that I'm working with. Some people prefer non-directive work to explore their feelings, whereas others prefer to explore strategies (a bit like a toolkit of resources for difficult times) or to learn about helpful theories. You are the expert on you - your preferences are always at the centre of our work together.


I have a special interest in the use of mindful awareness, the importance of self-compassion in therapy and the use of polyvagal theory to understand how stress and trauma affect our sense of embodied safety. This type of work lends itself well to working with a variety of personal difficulties, in a trauma-informed way, including (but not limited to):​

| anxiety | eco anxiety and climate grief | depression | bereavement | major life transitions | confidence and imposter syndrome | difficulties with friendships, relationships or family dynamics | feelings of hopelessness | feeling numb or lost | stress | burnout | difficulties understanding and expressing strong emotions | feeling trapped | feeling directionless |

Please don't worry if what you'd like help with isn't listed - I'm more than happy to discuss what brings you here to see if I can help. ​

Fees

My fee (for a 50 minute session) is based on a sliding scale of £45 - £65 per session, based on what feels fair and affordable to you in your personal circumstances. Counselling sessions that begin from 5pm onwards or occur at weekends operate on a sliding scale of £55 -£65.

Your initial consultation is totally free.

If you're struggling financially, I hold a few concessionary spaces. Please enquire and if I can help I will - if I can't help at this time then I may be able to signpost you to other services that can.
