About me

I offer a confidential place for you to talk without judgement and be the real you. For me the most important aspect of counselling is the relationship with the person sitting opposite me. By being open, accepting and honest in the relationship between us, it gives you the choice to create the life you want and be the person you want to be. I believe that you are the expert on your life and know the answers inside you..

I work with Adults, children 7-11 and young people 11-18.

Some of the problems I work with but not limited to are listed below.

  • Feeling depressed, stressed or having anxiety issues
  • Feeling sad
  • Feeling constantly irritable or angry
  • Finding it difficult to feel or understand your feelings
  • Finding home or work overwhelming
  • Lacking a sense of purpose or meaning in your life
  • Coming to terms with loss
  • Feeling blocked in your career or education
  • Having relationship difficulties
  • Having difficulties with your sexuality
  • Struggling with family conflicts including parenting
  • Suffering from repeating patterns of behaviour

I have experience as a Peri natal/post natal counsellor. This work involved working with trauma around a birth, child death, abortion, stil birth, post natal depression, peri natal depression and difficuities around being a new parent. I work with men and women in my private practice.

At the present time I work with adults in private practice and in primary and secondary schools with children and young people. I work with children/young people who have dsylexia, ASD and ADHA. I am working as a School Counsellor in Primary Schools and academies in Kent and East Sussex

About how I work

I work from a Person centred approach offered by the way of talking therapy with an experiential and intergrative approach. The choice of using these experiential and other integrative ways of working are always your choice. I use expressive and creative therapy such as sand tray, art work, games, drama therapy, narrative therapy and storytelling,stones, symbolic objects, creative writing, storytelling, visualisation collage,art journals,clay, play doh, puppets and other play therapy,as well as talk therapy.

Reading Dogs

How it works

Most adults are apprehensive about speaking in public. It is very daunting. Young people are no different. Research shows that young people can become nervous and stressed when reading to others in a group. However, when a Reading Dog enters the group, they often become less stressed, less self-conscious and more confident as the dogs are non-judgemental. Before long the young people are starting to look forward to the reading experience as they are going to read to their new friend, the Reading Dog. Reading Dogs provide comfort, encourage positive social behaviours, enhance self-esteem, motivate speech and inspire young people to have fun. The teacher should remain in charge of the reading sessions at all times. The students will be selected by their teachers as those who would benefit most from this intervention; normally young people who lack confidence, or have difficulty with reading or attention deficit. The teacher chooses and provides appropriate books. It is suggested that the sessions for each young person should be no longer than 15 minutes.

Please feel free to contact me with no obligation regarding any questions you wish to ask.

"The pupils who have been supported by Angie showed improvements in their concentration levels, their engagement in class and had less behavioural incidents. They reported that the protected the time that they spent being listened to was really special to them, providing a safe haven to off load worries and concerns, which in turn removed barriers to their learning. Thank you for helping our young people to move forward."

I also offer Equine Assisted Therapy see below;

Why choose Equine Assisted Therapy?

By working with horses in Equine Assisted Therapy, they can act as reflections of our behaviour or personality, metaphors of the way we live our life and of how we communicate in relationships. Often through our human experiences we have been let down, lost trust or have become fearful of communicating our needs. Often in our human relationships we have lost who we truly are because we may be placating, manipulating or controlling things in order to get our needs met. However, sometimes we are not congruent with our true desires and whilst we can cover this up with most humans, horses have the ability to sense that incongruence and react accordingly.

Because they mirror behaviour. They have innate ability to mirror the thoughts and behaviours of others. Because they are prey anaimals , they can read body languge and respond instantly. This means that if you enter the horse's space with a negative attitude and defensive body language, chances are the horse wont want to interact with you. Alternatively, if you enter with a sense of calm, confidence and openess - you should find the horse responds more postively. It is this trait that helps you to reflect on your behaviour and challenge the way you approach situtations both inside and outside the therapy session.

Equine Assisted Therapy can be used for anger, anxiety, behavioural problems, bereavement and loss, low self-confidence, and trauma. Every session is tailor made to suit the individual client's needs. Offered from the EAGLA model which uses a team approach to working with clients. There are a number of horses/ponies that can be chosen in height and size.

There are limited spaces avaiable Equine Therapy at the present time. Please contact me for details.

Sessions can be booked for weekdays, evenings and weekends. I am available for sessions using SKYPE.  I can offer telephone counselling for short term work (up to six sessions).There is free on road parking.

I am a registered member of the BACP and support my practice through regular supervision and training and development. My work is grounded in the BACP ethical framework.
