Angela Peel (BA Hons, PG Dip, MBACP) Inner Clarity Counselling
07531 966 701
Do you want to understand and loosen the grip of depression, anger, unhelpful patterns and behaviours, or receive relationship coaching which transforms your relationship with a loved one? Do you want to free yourself from the legacy of abuse or trauma? Or do you want to make freer choices, increase your self-awareness, nurture your potential, and increase your level of happiness?
Why counselling? Sometimes the unresolved legacy of a past event - an unhappy childhood, a traumatic experience - can cloud your daily existence, possibly without you even being aware of it. You might be experiencing surges of anger, depression, frustration, self-hatred or a feeling of unease and discomfort within yourself and not know why, or how to resolve them.
Now is the time to explore what is going on so that you can learn to accept yourself for who you are, and set yourself free.
I offer skilled support when you are facing a crisis, relationship issues, want couples counselling or coaching, struggling with depression, bereavement, grief, anger, abuse, low self esteem, addiction, divorce, illness, frustration at work, parenthood, ageing, redundancy, childhood trauma, fear of intimacy, feelings of hopelessness and more.
How I work: As an experienced, respected and approachable counsellor, I work gently, respectfully and at your pace to explore what you are experiencing. Together, we discover what it is that you need and how you can give that to yourself rather than relying on external crutches such as people, alcohol, drugs or food. Unlike many counsellors, I always look at your potential, at what is trying to emerge, as well as exploring the difficulties that you bring.
Relationship Coaching: As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I can coach you to find better ways to communicate and move from conflict and pain to connection and love. I work with individuals and couples of any age and sexual orientation.
I am valued for my ability to provide a holding, nurturing, safe space where you can reveal aspects of yourself that you are ashamed of, or afraid of, or confused by - and do so knowing that I continue to value and respect you. You become increasingly able to understand and accept yourself and therefore to live more freely and fully, enjoying who you are. I work creatively, tailoring the sessions to best fit the needs of the person I am with.
In my practice, the work we do is affirming, clarifying and life-changing. At times it can also be challenging and difficult, but with my support and your determination you can continue the journey to setting yourself free and realising your full potential.
Where I work: I work in two locations -
Hornsey, North London, which is in Haringey and is close to Wood Green, Alexandra Palace, Crouch End, Muswell Hill, Finsbury Park, Islington, Archway, Highgate, Hampstead etc
Barnes, near Barnes Bridge Station, which is near to Mortlake, Isleworth, Putney, Richmond, Hammersmith, Chiswick, Kensington etc.
If you would like to contact me, please phone or email me to arrange an initial session where we can discuss your needs and see if we would like to work together. Please include whether you would prefer to meet in Hornsey or Barnes and if you are able to come during the day when making contact.
More information is available on my website.
Thank you for visiting my page. I wish you well.
"Angela and her sessions have had such a positive impact on my life that I struggle to know where to begin in thanking her. Angela has a natural gift in providing gentle guidance that has given me the space and opportunity to explore my life and direction in a way which I believe would not have been possible without her... Thank you, I am eternally grateful."
"Like many of those who seek counselling, I met Angela during what was a particularly difficult period in my life. To have someone with Angela's patience and understanding to go to, even for just one hour a week, provided me with an invaluable anchor and prevented me from being overcome during the time between sessions. Further to this, when I felt able, and in my own time, Angela helped me to explore the deep, underlying issues that were feeding in to my difficulties coping day to day. Angela is very open to different avenues of approach in this regard and extremely creative in suggesting methods of reducing stress, anxiety, and seeing problems in a new light. To a prospective client I cannot recommend her highly enough."
"When we started looking for some help to overcome the problems in our relationship, we were drawn to Angela’s webpage as she seemed open, gentle and relaxed in her text and we were interested in the Imago Therapy. We spent several weeks visiting Angela on a weekly basis and during this time, Angela created a warm, supportive environment in which we felt comfortable to explore our deepest thoughts and feelings, enabling us to really hear each other and empathise in each other’s experiences. During this time we got to know each other better (even though we have been together 16 years) and learned some really valuable communication skills that we can use whenever we feel unheard by each other. Angela is very human and warm, and welcomes whatever you bring to the room. It feels like you are talking to a friend and we both think she is amazing. We missed her when we reached the end of our sessions but we came away with a renewed humour and light heartedness in our relationship and a whole set of skills to draw from should we need them. Thank you Angela."
“A few years ago everything in my life seemed to be falling apart, I was very unhappy at work and my personal life was a mess. I didn't know what to do and thought I would try counselling again to try to find some stability and myself once more. I had tried counselling previously with another counsellor but didn't really feel much benefit.
Angela helped me to face many issues that I had within me that I perhaps wasn't ready to deal with before or wasn't even aware of. I'm a slow learner, so it took a while, but with Angela's help I was able to recognise many negative patterns and start to undo destructive learnt habits. There was never any judgement, just patience, kindness, compassion and an ear always willing to listen.
The key to finding a better place was working things out for myself. Angela would never tell me what to do or give me the answers, she would always ask the questions that would allow me to work things out for myself, no matter how long it took, which gave me a real sense of empowerment throughout the process. Thanks to Angela I am far better equipped to deal with my anxieties and self doubts and am able to see life in a far more positive light. My life has turned around drastically and I am really looking forward to the year ahead. I will forever be grateful. Thank You.”
