Angela Howe Missen Registered MBACP. BA (Hons). MNCP.
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 Psychodynamics, Inner Child Therapy and Mindfulness.
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.
At the moment during the Covid-19 restrictions I am offering sessions via telephone or WhatsApp video call. Please contact me through the Counselling Directory site and I will respond to you as soon as possible.

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.
