Cannot tell you how awesome your work is โค๏ธโค๏ธ

I offer short and long-term therapy, using Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy. I specialise in Traum I specialise in Trauma, PTSD and anxiety.

Operating as usual


I often come back to the ending of the book โ€˜Itโ€™s Kind Of A Funny Storyโ€™ when talking about suicidal thoughts.
This book and the hope it gives, has saved countless lives.
Iโ€™ll never forget the moment I read this particular bit, utterly heartbroken that the author Ned Vizzini, had lost his own battle with depression years priors. I wish he could have gone back and taken hope from his own words. Remembered all the reasons to live. ๐Ÿ’”

However dark your thoughts, you are not alone. ๐Ÿ’›

Depression and suicidal idolisation rarely go away without help. So if youโ€™re having suicidal thoughts, itโ€™s time to speak to someone for help. Please donโ€™t hide behind jokes and a smile like this beautiful man.

Depression symptoms and what to doโ€ฆ

Whichever route you take, please don't just wait for it to get better.

You deserve help.

You are not alone.

Contact your GP or message me for a free consultation.



And here, a whole generation learned avoidance, procrastination and that their issues werenโ€™t โ€˜that badโ€™ ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜…


๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ 
Reminder for anyone with fish to keep an eye on the tank temperature this week too! High 30's can kill even tropical fish, and it's not ideal for goldfish to go above 24 degrees.

A partial water change with cooler (not freezing) water when needed will do the trick, and you can direct a fan at the water surface too. Also remember to turn off the lights!

Be extra careful of tanks near windows and smaller tanks will heat up quicker. Take care and stay safe!


And The Oscar goes to.....๐Ÿคฃ

Trauma buddies - take a look at this!
THIS is exactly what Iโ€™m talking about when we move into Flop (Red/Dorsal) in extremely stressful situations - and then back into the Fight/Flight (Amber/Sympathetic) once the danger has passed or you have an option to get away.

See how the antelope (??) doesnโ€™t even flinch at the hyena biting it? Itโ€™s body is flooded with those homemade opioids we talk about. Itโ€™s breathing will be incredibly shallow, and itโ€™s heart rate near stopped. It canโ€™t feel pain. It appears dead so the predator loses interest, or at least is less careful.

Then as soon as the hyena walks away, because it thinks itโ€™s ok to do so, the body kicks back into gear as one more survival option opens up! The threat brain takes milliseconds to see this and act. We as humans do this too!

P.S No more funny looks at my impression of a zebra on the Serengeti!!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‰

America. Iโ€™m heartbroken for you. This is the most backward BS Iโ€™ve ever seen. This wonโ€™t stop abortions, only safe access to them. ๐Ÿ’”
Anyone with a uterus, please look into safe options now, today. Order what you need to, prepare yourself before the full crap storm hits.



Spotted a Hummingbird Hawk Moth today on my break. Hope youโ€™re having a good Monday ๐Ÿ’›


Seeing with a flag, in was everything! The whole stadium roared in love & acceptance when he picked up these flags during Lights Up.

Had myself a little moment with Harry Styles, 90,000 other people and some rain ๐Ÿฅบ


Today I hosted my first trauma support group for a couple of clients.
It was great to get these beautiful souls all into the same room, and have a laugh about the trials and tribulations of PTSD. Looking forward to next week! ๐Ÿฅฐ


Morning! โ˜€๏ธ
Hope youโ€™re all having a beautiful weekend in the sunshine? What have you been up to??

Iโ€™ve been using this weather to do up some cheap IKEA bookcases for our living room. Lots of looooong prep work and lifting, but it feels great to accomplish something on my days off.

If youโ€™ve not done anything for either self-care or fun yet this weekend, then get on it! You know Iโ€™ll be asking in sessions! ๐Ÿ˜†


Feels so good to be back in my geeky place! ๐Ÿค“ Loving this 10 week course on Interpersonal neurobiology by ๐Ÿ’š


๐ŸŒˆ Happy Pride month! ๐ŸŒˆ
In any space around me you are unconditionally accepted, safe and seen - no matter who you are or who you love. You are beautifully perfect! ๐Ÿฅฐ


This is a work of art.
Iโ€™m not generally one for being a hardcore fan of particular musicians, as in following every piece of their promo, being super aware of when a new album is coming out, or watching interviews about said album.
But these last few months of promo have been such fun! From posting cryptic lyrics and photos behind doors daily for 2 months, teaser videos dropping, hour-long interviews, coachella, one night onlys, secret listening parties fully of hand-picked goodies and everything else Iโ€™ve not mentioned - this has been a damn warm hug of a release!!!
In one of the hardest months, where I lost my grandad, this has been my glitter in the grey. Today, release day, is also 9 years since I lost my nan, the best woman to ever exist. On a day that is usually heavy, Iโ€™ve now woken up to this beautiful album that has left me filled with love and sunshine.โ˜€๏ธ

Am head over heels in love with this!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜


Heyyy ๐Ÿฅฐ
Thank you to all my clients who have waited for me to return to work. Itโ€™s been a long and hard 3 weeks in which I lost an immensely important man in my life. But I can confirm that Iโ€™ll be back to work Tuesday as of 3rd May and canโ€™t wait to see all your faces!

Iโ€™ll be contacting everyone this weekend to get you booked back in ASAP. Anyone who has emailed, messaged or DMโ€™d me, Iโ€™ll also be finally replying. โœจ



โ€œThe stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.โ€
- W.H Auden


Iโ€™ll be back as soon as possible. In the meantime look after yourself and remember your healthy coping techniques โœจ


Amanda Hudson Therapy is currently closed due to personal circumstances - and as of tonight I wonโ€™t be answering any messages, emails or enquiries until I return.
Iโ€™ll be messaging anyone Iโ€™ve got booked in for next week, tomorrow. Any further updates though will be posted on here, rather than message everyone directly.
Thank you to everyone who has been so understanding the last few days. I hope to be back w/c 25th April.
Take care & stay safe xโœจ


LOVE this!!! Sitting with your discomfort allows for you to hear through the mess of emotions, and built your tolerance.


This is incredibly harmful and leaves two significant groups at high risk of this disgraceful practice โ€“ As*xuals (the current largest group targeted for โ€˜conversionโ€™) and Trans/gender diverse individuals. These groups already have an outstandingly high rate of suicidal ideation and self-harm.
What this is also doing though, is giving the UK a massive loop hole to cause further harm to the entire LGBTQ+ community. All you need is a few harmful stereotypes and BAM โ€“ your gay child has gender issues and therefore can LEGALLY be put forward for conversion therapy.
Up until now, conversion therapy has flown under the radar, and so in some ways was a little less harmful, but now, with all this attention and press, it speaks to reason that there will only be a rise in the harm done to these vulnerable individuals โ€“ and it will now be proudly legal too.


The biggest question brought into my therapy room is always โ€œWhatโ€™s wrong with me?โ€
And my answer is always the same; nothing. There is nothing wrong with you, youโ€™re not broken and certainly donโ€™t need fixing.
Most of my Ace clients are walking through life feeling different because theyโ€™re โ€œmissing out on what is supposed to happen with humansโ€. But as much as all feelings are valid, this simply isnโ€™t true.
We as a society are still fighting the harmful stereotypes that all men want nothing but s*x, that all women simultaneously only want children but hate s*x, that no other gender exists, and neither does something called being โ€˜s*x positiveโ€™.
But when we put all that to one side, simply put, there is no defined amount of s*xual attraction that humans are supposed to experience. And so, the real issue here is lack of awareness. S*x and s*xual attraction isnโ€™t spoken about anywhere as much as it should be, leading to masses of people experiencing s*xual attraction in an array of ways, that never fit the few boxes weโ€™ve been allowed by society. And itโ€™s bu****it.
You are perfect, and exactly as you were meant to be. And you can live a life just as full of happiness and love as anyone else. ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ

I love my autistic clients! ๐Ÿฅฐ
When working with anyone who is neurodiverse I believe itโ€™s my job to meet them where they are comfortable. Itโ€™s my job to find the right techniques, environment and communication style - not theirs. Itโ€™s my job to keep learning, to ask them for guidance if needed.
And as for the therapy? It is not to bring them in line with being neurotypical, but making sure they get what they need, and understand how they feel, which is always valid.


๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’› There are some amazing people working on the frontline and behind the scenes. If you are feeling as heartbroken as I am, here are some ways that you can help those affected by the war.


Face to face is back for Amanda Hudson Therapy. Of course online will also still be an option. Face to face is Aylesbury is also coming soon! ๐ŸŒป

We have survived the unimaginable, and have done so silently, invisibly, and often without support. If that's not courageous, I don't know what is. And yet we are often so hard on ourselves and feel not good enough.
