Angela Briggs BA (hon), DipHIC (BCPC), Reg M BACP
I offer a talking therapy where I am trained to listen and help you explore areas of your life that may be troubling you. Counselling provides time in your week where you can express and process difficult thoughts and emotions, helping you to gain clarity and allow feelings to be validated.
I am an integrative counsellor; my style of integration draws on humanistic and psychodynamic theory. Aside from the theory that informs my practice; I aim to meet you as an individual, where you feel listened to, understood and valued. I work with a number of areas including:
Exploration of inner feelings
Trauma and abuse
Low self worth
Finding meaning in life
Work related issues
Training, qualifications & experience
In 2005 I began to study for my BA (hon) Counselling and Society. Alongside my studies I started work as a youth worker where I had the opportunity to practically apply the skills I was developing. Later I began studying my BACP accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling, graduating in 2014.
Whilst studying for my diploma, I worked in a therapeutic community, providing support for adolescent girls who had a history of extreme neglect, abuse and trauma. I also provided counselling for the Southmead Project Bristol, working with adult survivors of abuse, as well as giving my time volunteering with Sesame Counselling Newport, where I stood as co-ordinator and secretary to the management committee.
