Hi I am Angela I am an accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with over 12 years experience.
I work with adults of all ages, including young children with the support of parents,as well as couples.
As an integrative therapist my approach is varied to suit your individual needs I offer a slightly longer session to clarify aims, expectations and previous experiences of counselling. I also offer ten-fiveteen minutes complimentary on the phone to discuss things further prior to booking. I work short term 6-9 sessions or more long term 6 months plus.
I can useTransactional analysis,Cognitive behavioural therapy and Mindfulness within my approach .
How can I help?
I can help with many issues such as
- early childhood trauma
- eating disorders
- attachment difficulties
My experience counselling in a residential school/ college has given me the opportunity to work with a children and young people in a creative and stimulating way. Children with Aspergers syndrome often have very acute anxiety and I have had success in helping children develop coping skills in this area.
I also work with couples. My experience and knowledge as a nursery nurse gives me insight into the needs of children-emotionally and developmentally this can be useful when a couple is experiencing difficulties within their relationships.
Initially clients contact me by email or telephone to arrange a time to discuss in confidence about counselling and what they are looking for.I am able to offer an initial first session at a reduced rate (please discuss on phoning).
