About me

Hello, I'm Angie and I help people who have been through (or are going through) tough times, experiencing change or just feeling stuck. 

During my career, I have supported many individuals who have faced challenges such as domestic abuse, using drugs or alcohol too much, feeling sad or worried or have got into trouble with the law. I also help people overcome things they should never have seen or experienced. My main goal is to help you live a happier, more fulfilled life.

Who do you help?

I believe everyone deserves a safe place to talk about their feelings and get the support they need, especially when they feel stuck, stressed or are going through big changes. I welcome lots of different people and work affirmatively with diversity; it doesn't matter if you're a young person dealing with tough stuff or an adult going through big changes. I really enjoy working with young people and have spent over twenty years helping teenagers with a range of issues in different places like mainstream schools, specialist educational and in-patient settings.

What can I expect from my counselling sessions?

When we work together, you can expect me to be open, caring and non-judgemental. I work in an integrative and trauma-informed way which means I draw on a range of techniques personalised to your specific needs. During our sessions, we'll talk about your experiences, how they've affected you and I'll offer you tools to move forward with strength and courage.

I'm not sure how many sessions I will need and where are you?

I offer both short and long-term counselling and we can meet face-to-face or online, whichever works best for you; I also have some evening appointments available. I am situated on Wadhurst High Street, the perfect place to treat yourself to a really good coffee or a tasty treat (according to me and the Sunday Times, no less!) and I am conveniently placed between Wadhurst and Stonegate train stations.

Training, qualifications & experience

Alongside my private practice, I provide counselling support to secondary schools, deliver workshops and support the charity MIND by helping clients dealing with developmental trauma, PTSD and C-PTSD arising from traumatic experiences such as abuse in childhood or later life. I invest in additional clinical supervision with a trauma specialist to support this vital work.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
