Amanda provides experiential avenues for exploring health in ways which come from the edge of postmodern psychology, which embrace complementary approaches to healing the whole person. Her person-centred approach is based on holistic, psychodynamic and transpersonal principles. This provides you an avenue to explore, express and experience feelings, gain insight, make meaning and integrate different aspects of self.
