About me

Hi I am Angela I am an accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with over 14 years experience.

I work with adults, teenagers and children with the support of parents,as well as couples.

My approach

As an integrative therapist my approach is varied to suit your individual needs I offer a slightly longer session to clarify aims, expectations and previous experiences of counselling. I also offer 10 -15 minutes complimentary introudction on the phone to discuss things further prior to booking. I work short term 6-9 sessions or more long term 6 months plus.

I use a varied approach as each client is very unique. Usually this includes Transactional analysis,Cognitive behavioural therapy and Mindfulness within my approach . I also have a range of creative resources -an image can speak quite powerfully and this can be a useful tool for some.

How can I help?

I can help with many issues such as

  • early childhood trauma
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • self-harm
  • eating disorders
  • attachment difficulties
  • Stress

My experience counselling in a residential school/ college has given me the opportunity to work with a children and young people in a creative and stimulating way. Children with Aspergers syndrome often have very acute anxiety and I have had success in helping children develop coping skills in this area.

I work also with couples. My background experience and theoretical knowledge  of children  can help me connect with the challenges couples with children young or older face.

Initially clients contact me by email or telephone to arrange a time to discuss in confidence about counselling and what they are looking for.I am able to offer an initial first session at a reduced rate (please discuss on phoning).
