Welcome to Amanda Jane Counselling

Helping you to help yourself

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Amanda Harman and I am a person-centred counsellor offering face-to-face sessions from my home in Seaford, East Sussex.

I will support you in a non-judgmental way, offering empathy and honesty

I am a person-centred counsellor which means I focus on actively listening and inviting you to notice and be curious about what comes up as you talk. Our work together is about you becoming more self-aware so that you can become empowered to make your own changes.

Qualifications & training

I decided to train as a counsellor so that I could provide support to those struggling in life. I believe that talking therapy really can make a difference.

I have a foundation degree in Person-Centred Counselling (FdSc), and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), and adhere to their code of ethics.

Speak in confidence

Counselling takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy - and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.

A problem shared...

Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression - many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems - and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.

Making better choices

Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, heathier choices moving forward.

What issues can counselling help with?

People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through counselling:

Problems with confidence or self-esteem




Relationship problems



Problems with addiction


Post-traumatic stress

Grief, loss or bereavement
