Angela Carr: MA Counselling, Dip Psychotherapy, Dip Supervision
I have 19yrs+ experience of working as a therapist in GP surgeries, private practice and with employee assistance programmes and during this time I have noticed that many people are interested in what happens for them on the inside, how they relate to themselves and in what happens between them and others. My model of working is relational-developmental which means that I will reflect with you on how you relate to yourself, other people and with me. This will help you in becoming more aware of who you are and how you support or block yourself in getting what you need.
The counselling relationship can be supportive and at times it can also be challenging because I will be encouraging you to reflect on yourself and events in quite a different way. Counselling, where successful, can help you develop a more satisfying relationship with yourself and others to support you in building a richer life.
