Angela Richardson, Reg. MBACP - Individual & Couples/Relationship Counsellor
020 8698 6015 / 078 7461 8352
I offer counselling at times when life experiences can bring anxiety or stresses that impact on our well-being and relationships. At these difficult times it can be helpful to talk with someone who will listen to you as you explore your thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental environment.
My approach to working with clients is to build an honest and trusting relationship where I can help you to talk about your difficulties and concerns. I have experience in working with a variety of issues, some of which might be difficult for a client to share, but I am able to provide a safe space for you to explore these.
I am a qualified Integrative transpersonally 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. I work to create a trusting relationship with you as we work together to explore difficult experiences.
i can help you with your current and past relationship issues, helping you to be aware of re-occurring patterns and unconcious processes, such as why we are attracted to a certain type of person, and how past relationships influence those in our present lives.
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, have experience working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and other aspects of trauma. I have experience of working with counselling/Psychotherapy students and qualified therapists.
