Angela Gray, Counsellor/Psychotherapist, DC, DCG, DCH, Reg. MBACP.
Thank you for accessing my webpage. I am a Counsellor/Psychotherapist of over 20 years experience, working one to one and in groups with people of all ages. During that time, I have helped many people find their way through their problems and issues. I have worked in schools, universities, young offender's institutions as well as in management, in the community and in the private and public sectors.
I work in an Integrative style which means that I blend different therapeutic approaches and techniques depending upon your needs. My original training is Humanistic which means that I practice in a caring, non-judgmental and empathic way. I provide a comfortable, confidential space in a calm and supportive environment and together we will work through whatever it is that is bothering you and help you to find solutions. Counselling/Psychotherapy can be a very helpful way through problems and issues. It is much more than simply someone to talk to. It is very much an interactive session where I will work with you to help you find the answers you need.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and hold their Certificate of Proficiency which means that I am approved by them and adhere to their Code of Ethics.
Counselling/Psychotherapy can be long or short term depending upon the nature of the issue(s). I also use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) when appropriate, which can be very useful for those who have goals they want to achieve - e.g. combatting anxiety, depression, anger, OCD, low self esteem etc.
I am committed to my own continuing professional development (CPD) and regularly attend training to keep my skills and knowledge up to date. I do not discriminate on the grounds of gender, race, sexual orientation or disability.
Training, qualifications & experience
My career has spanned over 25 years working with young people and adults in Education and Teaching. In 1994 I decided to expand my skills and studied for a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Counselling at Roehampton University. Since then I have become qualified in Hypnotherapy & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
My experience and training has included several different approaches to therapy including Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Humanistic & Psychodynamic counselling. This integrative style means that I can use as many skills and tools as possible in order to help my clients by adapting my approach to suit their needs.
Counselling is essentially a talking therapy where the client can discuss their worries and problems in a safe, caring and empathic environment. Where appropriate, CBT techniques of goal-setting and changing thought patterns will be used to make changes that the client wants. CBT is a highly popular therapy which is used by the NHS to treat patients with depression and other times of emotional disturbances. I am passionate about Counselling and Psychotherapy and have been teaching Counselling/Psychology to adults for a number of years.
