Amy empowers individuals to overcome stress and self-esteem challenges. Through her compassionate and non-judgmental approach, Amy provides a safe space for women to explore their inner experiences and develop practical strategies to navigate life transitions and interpersonal relationships with greater ease and confidence. By incorporating mindfulness practices into her therapy sessions, Amy can help you cultivate resilience and build a strong foundation of self-awareness, enabling you to live a more fulfilling and purposeful life.
During her free-flowing sessions, Amy encourages you to show up as you are and explore what’s going on inside, using a range of therapeutic techniques. She’ll assist you in developing strategies to manage your anxiety and depression and ease your stressors, often using mindfulness techniques to help ground you in the present moment. Some of the tools she likes to incorporate in sessions are short guided meditations, breathing techniques, and the 5 senses exercise. Her relaxed, non-judgmental space is grounded in empathy and practical resources, leaving room for humour and connection.
Outside of sessions, you can find Amy cuddling or walking her dog Ricky. Amy enjoys spending time in nature, hiking, playing tennis, and travelling. She can also be found doing pilates, listening to podcasts, watching reality TV, trying out new recipes, or grabbing dinner with friends.
