Angela Rogers MBACP Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
Brighton & Hove
As a psychotherapeutic counsellor I approach each client as an individual. Between us we decide the particular way we work, this might be short-term or open ended but it will always be a collaboration at a pace determined by you. In a safe environment painful feelings can be expressed, held and explored with kindness and compassion. Whether you are in an immediate crisis or struggling with past traumas, together we can work towards a better understanding and lessening the distress in your life. Psychotherapeutic counselling can give you more awareness of why you feel and think the way you do, help you begin to heal some of the hurt and release the potential for more freedom and fulfilment.
You may be experiencing any of the following:
- a general sense of unease
- feeling isolated, hurt, angry or violent
- relationship issues
- worries about sex and sexuality
- concerns about health, food and alcohol
- a search for meaning and the purpose of life
- feeling overwhelmed and unsure of who you are
- struggling with depression or anxiety
- problems with work or study
- losing a job
- the death of a loved one
- going through the menopause
- fear of ageing and one’s own death
- feelings of loss and hopelessness
I also offer suppport to help you realise creative and academic projects and support for times when you feel blocked. My belief in the creative capacity of human beings, given the right conditions, underpins all my work.
Two initial meetings at a reduced rate, give you the opportunity to decide if I am right for you. If you want to continue we will meet weekly at the same time in the same place. I work in Brighton and Hove, BN3 and Lewes BN7, from quiet, comfortable rooms easily accessible by public transport.
