Angela Richardson, Reg. MBACP - Individual & Couples/Relationship Counsellor
020 8698 6015 / 078 7461 8352
I offer counselling at times when life experiences can bring emotional difficulties that impact on our well-being and relationships. I work with individuals and couples and can help you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental environment.
My approach to working with clients is to build an trusting relationship where we work together to talk about your concerns. I have experience in working with a variety of issues, some of which might be difficult to share, but I provide a safe space for you to explore these.
I am a qualified Integrative counsellor working with individuals and couples, holding Registered Membership with the BACP (Reg. MBACP). This means that I adhere to the BACP's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
As an Integrative counsellor, I draw upon different counselling models that offer flexible ways of working with you, keeping your best interests in mind in our work together, or by exploring solution-focused approaches to help you achieve your goals.
If you are having difficulties in your relationships, I can help you to talk about and explore these issues. I can help you with your current and past relationship issues, helping you to be aware of re-occurring patterns such as why we are attracted to a certain type of person, and how past relationships influence those in our present lives. This may include family relationships or relationships with a partner or friends. If you decide on couples-counselling, I can help you improve your communication and understanding of each other.
I work with a wide range of issues including stress and anxiety, loss and work related issues. I have an interest in working with issues of diversity and difference, issues that might be perceived as taboo or unspeakable in society, community or with family. I am experienced in working with bereaved clients, and working with relationship issues. I work with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and other aspects of trauma in adulthood or childhood. I work with counselling/Psychotherapy students and qualified therapists.I
I have an established private practice and am a Practice Manager in a counselling agency. I have previously worked in local counselling services.
