About me

Hi I am Angela I am an accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with over 11 years experience.

I work with adults of all ages, including young children, teenagers as well as couples. Counselling is very relational and it takes courage to take the first step and reach out for support.

My approach

My approach is varied to suit your individual needs so in the initial session I offer a slightly longer session to clarify aims, expectations and previous experiences of counselling. I work short term 6-9 sessions or more long term 6 months plus.

My approach includes cognitive behavioural therapy, Mindfulness and solution focused work . More long term work may be more creative and less goal focused. As an integratively trained therapist this is geared to suit your individual needs as one approach does not fit all.

How can I help?

I have a contract Counselling adults staying at the YMCA offering intensive short term work with clients with wide ranging issues such as:

  • early childhood trauma
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • self-harm
  • eating disorders
  • attachment difficulties
  • addiction

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).
