Angela Williams, 'Your Space' Counselling. MBACP. Dip. Couns., Fnd. Deg.
Wellbeing Workout Centre
10 Harriet Street
Vale Of Glamorgan
I named my counselling service ‘your space’ because the time in the counselling session is solely your space to explore at your own pace what is going on for you, whilst feeling listened too and supported in a confidential therapeutic relationship.
It maybe that you have suffered a bereavement, relationship or family issues, a traumatic event, or you are experiencing feelings and emotions that have left you confused or unhappy such as anxiety. I will work alongside you with warmth and empathy on a journey to discover changes, goals, understanding or acceptance you may want to implement into your life.
My core therapeutic approach is humanistic existential, but I do draw on a variety of approaches to enable me to work with clients in a way that suits their needs and agenda’s recognising that everybody is an individual with their own perspectives on issues, beliefs, emotions and feelings.
I work with adults, children and young people. Apart from private practice I have experience as a counsellor working in a number of schools as part of Action for Children, in Cruse Bereavement Care, in Cardiff University with students and also for Cardiff University in their staff counselling service.
Thank you for taking the time to explore my profile. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have that can help you decide if I would be the right therapist for you.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework.
