Hello, I'm Angela.
As an experienced counsellor I help all sorts of people with all kinds of problems to feel happier about themselves, their life and relationships. No problem is too small or too big.
If you are looking for a professional, friendly and confidential service to talk through difficult situations or worries whilst leaving anxiety, stress, loss, depression, relationship problems, low self-esteem and confidence, negative thinking and more behind, I can help.
You will be in safe hands as together we will figure out what the problem is and work towards how you would like things to be better. You will become more self-aware of how your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships can negatively influence your life without you realising, and begin to:
- Find relief from what's bothering you.
- Feel valued and understood.
- Have a new understanding about why you do the things you do.
- Learn better ways of coping.
- Begin to look to the future with more optimism.
- It is so much easier than trying to figure things out all by yourself.
Trying something different can be scary but what is it costing you not to try? Change needn't be a complete 360 degree about turn or complete life overhaul - as little as a 2 degree turn in perspective is enough to make a big difference. I will support you throughout the process of re-evaluating your life whilst addressing any fears you may have that are holding you back, such as fear of change, failure, or the unknown.
I will deeply listen to you with sensitivity and without judgment helping you make sense of the situation you find yourself in. Working together we can bring quicker and longer lasting results where you will go from just surviving to thriving.
If you would like to find out more about my services, discuss your requirements and find out how I can best assist you, call me directly on 07790339090, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.freshapproaches.uk

Initial consultation free.
Counselling sessions at £40.00/session.
We start with an informal initial consultation, about 20 minutes, which gives you the opportunity to tell me a little about what you would like help with, ask any questions you may have and make sure we both feel comfortable working together before booking the first session.
Following sessions are 50 minutes long where we explore together what is going on in your life and find ways that will help you move past obstacles towards a more happy, healthy life.
Most clients need just 4 - 12 sessions to feel better about themselves, their life or their relationships; for others a longer approach maybe more suitable.
I also am a qualified Hypnotherapist.
Hypnotherapy is a gentle and relaxing technique that works by accessing your subconscious mind, where all your automatic behaviours take place, and helps to create new patterns. 90% of what we do is governed by our subconscious mind and in a deeply relaxed state we talk directly to the subconscious where positive suggestions and new ways of being are suggested.
Here are some situations hypnotherapy has been proven to help with:
- Anxiety and Stress
- Fears and Phobias
- Panic Attacks
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Pain Management
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Low Self-Esteem and Confidence
- Improving Performance Levels and Motivation
- Age Regression
I also work regularly with clients via Skype and telephone.
Skype is is free and easy to set up. It brings together traditional therapist skills with online technology via Skype online video link. It has been shown to have similar benefits to in-person counselling. Download Skype here and create a free account. Want to know more about and how to use Skype go to their help page.
Using Skype or telephone is easy and has many benefits which address:
- Missing appointments if you are away for work or traveling.
- Have difficulty finding the time to attend appointments in person due to restricted mobility, are housebound for any reason, live in remote areas, or do not have childcare.
- Do not live local to me.
- You work shifts and find it difficult to attend regular in-person appointments.
- Don't want others to know you are having counselling.
Please contact me if you think this would be suitable for you and I will be happy to take you through the process of setting it up.

“I found the sessions really useful. They helped me to clear my head and get rid of a lot of stuff that was in there. I feel a lot calmer and happier.” — Counselling client
“I don’t think I could have managed without your support. I now understand what’s going on in my life and what’s causing me so much so stress. It’s made such a big difference becoming more aware and I’ve started to make small changes so that I can manage things better.” — Counselling client
“I was scared of making a wrong decision and talking to you helped me to think about things more calmly. I wouldn’t have coped as well as I did without your support. Thank you.” — Counselling client
