Amy Launder provides an open and empathic space, where clients can feel comfortable enough to explore their concerns. Counselling gives the client a chance to work through problems and issues in a neutral space, with no judgements or expectations from the therapist. As well as addressing the negative aspects of what a client is dealing with, Amy also encourages clients to recognise and draw on their strengths and experiences to build coping mechanisms.

She also has experience of working with clients who have experienced such life changes as disability, unemployment, illness, and redundancy.
