Angela Rhydderch BACP (Accredited), UKCP Registered)
I work with adults and teenagers from premises in Godalming and Milford.
I currently work exclusively online during this coronavirus outbreak.
I am able to offer one to four sessions, for clients wanting brief therapy during the current stressful situation.
As an integrative therapist I can vary my approach to suit your individual needs. I can work both short and long term. My way of working is collaborative to empower the client to move forward through psychoeducation. Therapeutic work does not just happen in the session there is also a process of reflection after each session finishes.
Powerful emotion can be tapped into using imagery. I have a range of creative resources which we can use as an image can speak a thousand words. The therapy can help through talking or creativity, to explore left over experiences which are getting in the way, holding you back from moving on and changing life or accepting it as it may be. I am experienced at working with younger children, using sand trays, symbols or picture cards.
I am fully trained in the evidence-based approach of Mindfulness.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience.
