Angela Howe Missen Registered MBACP. BA (Hons). LNCP
There are often times in our life when we face challenges that prevent us from moving forward and leading a full and happy existence. These can present themselves in ways that are sometimes difficult to understand, with varying symptoms such as depression, anger, anxiety, addictions and low self-esteem, to name but a few.
By sharing these emotions with a trained Counsellor we can begin to make sense of why we behave the way we do. Bringing this deeper understanding and awareness to our lives can enable a shift in consciousness which allows beneficial changes to be made.
As a Psychotherapist and Counsellor my approach is one that will help facilitate this journey with empathy and guidance. I use a range of different methods to reflect the fact that all human beings are fundamentally different. This may include CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) Person Centre and Psychodynamics.
As well as supporting adults I have spent a number of years working with young people and adolescents. I usually work with individuals for an agreed, appropriate period of time on a one to one basis in a peaceful location south east of Cambridge and 8 miles from Saffron Walden.
If you have been in a difficult situation recently or something from your past has caused particular upset, then I can help support your recovery in a safe, relaxing and confidential environment.
