Angela Rhydderch BACP (Accredited), UKCP Registered)
Hi I am Angela I am an accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with over 15 years experience.
I work with adults, teenagers and children with the support of parents,as well as couples.
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 introduction on the phone by request. I work short term 6-9 sessions or more long term 6 months plus.
I use a varied approach as each client is very different. This may include drawing on Transactional analysis,Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) 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
- early childhood trauma
- self hatred and anger
- attachment difficulties
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 face.
