Angie Greensmith - @Mindsmatterto.me - Registered Member MBACP - Dip Couns
Are you looking for a way to start moving forward and making changes ?
Let me help you make the first steps towards gaining understanding and being free from the pain of anxiety and stress, loss and bereavement , confusion, relationship issues and the general uncertainty life throws in our path. Does it feel as though you are overwhelmed and everything is too much to cope with at the moment?
Just like 'us', no two journeys are the same and it can be difficult to know where to start. Let me help you -
How we can work to solve it - together we can make sense of what is holding you back, causing you pain and distress, directing your decision choices or making you unhappy and 'stuck' in areas of your life, personal and otherwise.
'I was almost paralysed with anxiety and feelings of panic and distress...Angie helped me to untangle the the mess of threads in my head and put them into order...' Rachel
What we need to solve it - I have no magic wand - I sometimes wish I had. But then I wouldn't get to be part of a profession that I’m passionate about - listening, understanding, supporting and helping people make sense of what seems so complicated and unfathomable.
'The sessions left me feeling empowered and with a sense of my own self-worth. I found confidence in myself ...' WJW
What will you experience in the process - Talking, being heard and understood is the start of the journey which focuses on gaining deeper understanding, encouraging change, acceptance, growth and development.
'...the sessions helped me know myself better and understand how I could make life less stressful for me and those dearest to me...' Chris
What is unique about what I can offer you - When clients see the clearing of their 'fog' or have that 'light bulb' moment is part of why I'm a counsellor. I have a rich and diverse outlook, knowledge and understanding of life, plus counselling experience in abundance.
' I am so very glad I sought Angie's help, and will be forever grateful for enabling me to become the much happier person I am now...'
' Angie has given me more self confidence and a fresh outlook on life...'
So if you want to have a talk about what is hurting or worrying you give me a no obligation call and let's see what we can do to help you take the first step.
' I would recommend her without reservation...if you are unsure, seriously just give Angie a call...meeting her has been a great benefit...'

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
