UNFOLD COUNSELLING SERVICE

This is a confidential counselling service for people struggling with aspects of their life, journey and experiences. Perhaps you’ve lost a loved one and need a safe space to reflect, or perhaps you are struggling with understanding and expressing your emotions. Everyone needs a listening ear and a place to be still. This need maybe more through the difficult times in life...

ABOUT ME

The Full Story

My name is Amie Coates and I qualified as a counsellor in 2007 with a Higher Ed Diploma in Theology and Counselling through Middlesex University (London School of Theology). I am a Christian and work as an integrative counsellor, using various therapeutic tools, depending on each individual client’s need. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and my practice is covered by indemnity insurance.


For 5 years I worked in local secondary schools offering a counselling service to those in need of support. Individuals presented struggles with family breakdown, anger problems, self esteem issues etc. I’d work with these people initially over a series of 6 sessions, setting goals and using aspects of person centred, solution focussed and psychodynamic counselling approaches. 

Over the years I have worked with clients who have experienced the following issues:

 health related problems 

anxiety

depression

eating disorders

self harming behaviours

family breakdown 

overcoming addiction


Other experience gained have been through the following: Over 8 years working with Children and Family services as a sessional worker, working with young people as a Leaving Care Worker for Dorset County Council and as a Teaching Assistant  at a local primary school. 

Other qualifications include:

* A Certificate in Health and Social care 

* Completed modules in Child Development and also in Exploring Psychology (through the Open University) 

* Currently I am working towards an MA in Applied Theology at Moorlands Theological College  


I have relevant safeguarding training and regular counselling supervision to ensure best practice.
