About me

I am a professionally trained and qualified counsellor and psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I offer short and long term therapy in central London, near Holborn, and Greenwich. Contact me by email or phone to arrange an initial meeting to find out how I might be able to help you.

I understand therapy as a process of self-exploration within the safety of a therapeutic relationship that is characterised by acceptance, empathy and authenticity. I work in a person-led way, which means that our work together will be unique and will respond to what would be helpful and therapeutic for you. I provide an open, supportive and non-judgemental space to explore the issues and feelings that you bring to the session.

Therapy can help with a wide range of issues, including:

  • lack of confidence and low self-esteem
  • bereavement and loss
  • depression and anxiety
  • sexual and relationship problems
  • work-related stress and redundancy
  • feelings of being stuck or just something not being quite ‘right’ in life

There is unequivocal evidence that, on average, talking about such issues with a trained therapist will have a positive impact on people’s mental health and wellbeing, leading to greater happiness and freedom (Essential Research Findings in Counselling and Psychotherapy: The Facts are Friendly, Mick Cooper, SAGE Publications 2008).

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Higher Professional Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy, with Distinction, and I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as a therapeutic practitioner. The BACP is the UK’s largest professional body for the counselling professions. In 2013 the BACP launched the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status with the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice, and a Complaints Procedure.

I am committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and regularly undertake further training in specific areas, such as working therapeutically with:

  • Survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence
  • Sexual and gender minorities
  • Children and young people, using play and creativity

Having benefited from more than 90 hours of one-to-one personal therapy, as well as 80 hours of group psychotherapy, my understanding of the therapeutic process is firmly grounded in my own experience. As well as bringing my professional and academic training to my practice, I personally understand how helpful, supportive and transformative the therapy journey can be as a client.

I have a first class honours degree in social anthropology from the University of London, and have a committed mindfulness practice that has supported my wellbeing for a decade.

I have worked previously with clients who have discussed:

  • Addiction(s)
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Career and work issues
  • Co-dependency
  • Depression and low mood
  • Domestic violence/abuse
  • Eating problems
  • Emotional and psychological abuse
  • LGBT*Q+ issues
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Phobias
  • Race and racism
  • Schizophrenia
  • Self-esteem and confidence issues
  • Self-harm and suicidal feelings
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexuality and relationship issues
  • Stress and panic attacks
  • Trauma

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am committed to working with difference and diversity within an ethos of anti-discriminatory practice, based on an awareness of oppression and my own ethnicity and background. I have an LGBT*Q+ affirmative approach to therapy. I also have knowledge of the 12-Step model of recovery from addictions and welcome clients who attend a fellowship.

Fees

Making an appointment

To make an initial appointment, please call 07850-456-580, email angelo@abcounselling.co.uk, or simply use the email button on this page. If you reach my voicemail, please leave a message and I will return your call promptly.

Before making an appointment it may be useful to have a telephone conversation during which we can briefly discuss your situation and what has prompted you to seek therapy at this time. If it feels right for you we can then arrange to meet for an initial session. This first meeting will give you the chance to decide if you wish to begin therapy with me.

Fees

Sessions last 50 minutes and are generally held weekly. My fee is £60. I also offer a limited number of concession spaces depending on availability.
