I was born in Stockton on Tees and I have learned from life experience, expert training and personal development how to empower and guide people towards achieving the goals they desire.
Helping people has always been a passion of mine. I have over 20 years of experience working with children and adults.
My journey started quite some time ago. First starting out as an Outdoor Instructor, working with young people. Helping them overcome their fears, reconnect them with nature and help them to access their inner confidence and motivation. Ultimately, leading them to create a compelling future for themselves. Definitely one of my favourite jobs!
I went on to continue this work in the Middlesbrough area, helping young people and adults find a more positive way of interacting and contributing to their local community, which was amazing!
For the past 7 years, I have been working with young people in secondary schools. Helping the most vulnerable and challenging students. Guiding them towards a more successful and enjoyable school life.
I have also continued to improve my knowledge and skills by becoming qualified in Andrew T. Austin’s, Integral Eye Movement Therapy, Metaphors of Moment with Alan Johnson. And, Steven Blake’s Oldpain2Go. Having these kind of skills ensure that I can take the most efficient approach with my clients to get them the result they want, without having to painfully relive any past experiences, without it taking forever and without being patronised. Making the best use of our time possible.
Thank you for visiting my website. There are some testimonials below from just some of my amazing clients, which make an interesting read if you are curious as to how I can help you. I look forward to speaking and working with you soon!
It has been during this time, that I continued with my own personal development. Receiving expert training in Neuro Linguistic Programming, from an exceptional trainer in the North East, Alan Johnson, at Change Working. It was at this point I began to realise I was already using a lot of the techniques that I was learning about, only now I can use them with purpose and produce even better results. So, I continued on with my training to gain further skills and knowledge and became trained in the most up to date evidence based techniques in Hypnosis, with the legendary Brian Watson.

Amy is so professional and very passionate about her work. She has such a warm and caring approach that makes you feel instantly at ease. She provides an articulate and easy understanding to your needs. The session I had left me feeling so much more confident and better about myself.
Eye movement therapy
I actually can't remember what traumatic memory or circumstance of mine Amy used this technique for! I know it sounds crazy but I cannot remember. I can remember the session but cant remember the memories I had to picture and think of. I had a basic and very quick session so it proves to me its powerful stuff! I would recommend anyone who has PTSD to contact Amy about this as its becoming one of the best psycho therapies available.

Amy is an amazing coach who makes you feel instantly welcomed, relaxed and comfortable. I would highly recommend booking for a session with her, as she can cater to so many different needs. Her passion and skill for helping others really shows in her work.

Prior to my first session I had no preconceptions as this is something I have never accessed before.
Amy made me feel at ease. Instantly. The session was tailored to my own needs.
Throughout the session Amy used a number of techniques one if which was eye movement therapy. This was very insightful and helped me to think about stress triggers in my past and how to re-train my mind/thoughts
I have left my session feeling relaxed and more in tune with what my mind and body needs. I feel I have learnt new strategies to assist me with improving my emotional wellbeing.
Amy, I can't thank you enough.

Why did I choose to book an appointment with Amy? Several aspects in my life had changed and I felt completely lost and unsure how to move forward. I felt rooted to the spot. I understood that I needed to change my mind set but had completely no idea how to achieve it or even if this was possible. I wanted to improve my future self, and not repeat old habits.
I had five sessions with Amy(spanning over 5 months). All sessions were tailor made to me, she used different techniques and exercises – not all of them made sense at the time – but she assured me they would with time, and they did. Some made sense days later and some are working their magic now, and I have no doubt that these are lifelong lessons.
“Sometimes I wake up and I have to remind myself: “There is nothing wrong with me. I have patterns to unlearn, new behaviours to embody and wounds to heal. But there is nothing wrong with the core of me and who I am. I am unlearning generations of accumulated harm and I am remembering love. It takes time.”
Not all the sessions are easy, they aren’t meant to be, but all I would say is go with it, embrace it and you will get the most amazing outcomes. Now, I can’t promise you Amy will make you richer, thinner, have amazing eye brows or have flawless dance moves!!! But she will re-ignite YOU.
