Angela Hodson-Walker (Dip Counselling & Hypnotherapy) Accredited MBACP MNCS Prof
Whether you need help with a particular issue, situation or experience that is affecting your life, counselling can really help.
I understand that the idea of counselling can seem daunting and I will do my best to help you work through any difficult times in your life - we can talk it through and find a way forward.
I believe that a trusting, equal and respectful relationship between client and counsellor is the key to a positive therapy experience.
I trained as a Person-Centred Integrative Psychotherapist - which basically means that I can draw from several therapeutic models, enabling me to create a bespoke therapy model tailored especially for you.
I offer a safe and private space where you can share your problems and feel heard. The aim of counselling is to empower you, to help you to develop your own insights and gain deeper understanding of yourself, and through the process of counselling identify any underlying patterns helping you to integrate all aspect of yourself, some of which may be suppressed or inhibited and as a result they can be better understood, enabling you to become more whole and create new pathways to lasting change.

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.
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.
