Counselling for adults & adolescents in Hertfordshire

I specialise in anxiety, panic attacks and emotional regulation with teenagers, young people and adults.

“Be the person you needed when you were younger”

A quote by Ayesha Siddiqi that shifted my perspective.


Welcome to Amber Therapy

Hi! I’m Andrea and I have been growing Amber Therapy here in Croxley Green, Hertfordshire since 2015.

Having my own struggles with anxiety as a teenager and on into my adult life, I wish I had found the support I needed much sooner than I did.

How can Amber Therapy support you?

Your anxiety will be individual to you, we can work together to unpack thoughts and feelings, past experiences and present difficulties to help you understand what might be causing your anxiety and find the best approach to help you cope and manage it, to live a more relaxed life through talking therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

I like being listened to, I appreciate being heard. I would like to offer that opportunity to you.

Sometimes just having the space to talk freely can help unravel thoughts and help us gain a fresh perspective within situations.

I used to lie awake at night worrying about situations, relationships, my children, the future and feeling overwhelmed with regret and guilt over situations from the past. Going over conversations in my head, that hadn’t even happened and probably didn’t need to happen but drained my energy.

Engaging in my own personal therapy helped me work through my confusion, process my past, understand myself and my needs better by developing a better awareness of who I am and who I want to be. 

Value over

I value how important it is to be heard. I listen to understand. Being heard and understood can be so helpful to gain a fresh perspective and develop self–awareness.

Passionate about
mental health

I am passionate about emotional well-being and want to support you if you struggle to cope with your mental health, I have experience with ADHD, Asperger’s, Bi–Polar, Autism, and Depression.

Non Judgemental

I can offer you a safe and non–judgemental space where I can support you to be your true self and explore thoughts and feelings, situations, and experiences that might be difficult to share with others. 


Professional and Qualified

With life challenging many of us at the moment, mental health services are pushed to their limits. I have a very busy private practice, and currently have limited availability, however I will do my best to offer support where I can.

Adolescent Therapy

I have worked with teenagers for over 10 years, supporting young people in secondary schools and therapeutic residential care homes. I have worked with clients experiencing suicidal ideation, self-harm, anxiety, depression and the stress from the pressures that young people can be under academically and sociably.

Adult 1-1 Therapy

I have worked with adults who have suffered domestic violence and abuse, sexual, physical and emotional. I have supported clients through difficult situations such as marriage and relationship breakdowns, helping clients work through life changing situations such as a change of career, divorce and sitting beside clients at times of loss, grief and bereavement.


Why Amber Therapy?
