Amanda Smith





Amanda is available in the UK and Internationally for one to one counselling (Skype/Telephone) specifically for those who may have experienced sociopathic abuse or difficulties with other toxic people in their lives.

She is a speaker, sharing knowledge through lived experience as well as running workshops. She has experience as a bereavement counsellor and has provided training for CRUSE as well as NAPAC. She is an author, who, using personal experience and decades of researches has written about sociopathic abuse and therefore how to prevent it, in her memoir Toxic No More. The book is used on the SoRECS training course for therapists and counsellors and is recommended reading at AFTERMATH- Surviving Psychopathy, the foundation set up by Dr David Kosson, Vice-President Dr Paul Babiak (Snakes in Suits) and sponsored by Dr Robert Hare, who devised the psychopath checklist, revised (PCL-R).

She helps people understand and have clarity on how to empower themselves. With a working knowledge of addiction, she’s worked via twelve-step and other groups, with people effected by addiction and toxic relationships and the ensuing trauma which effects the quality of life and the very essence of who we are, including sometimes, financially. She believes that once we stop believing the lies we’ve been told about ourselves, we can and do become who we were always meant to be. Amanda is a trustee and trainer at SoRECS.
