About me

Angy's Diploma in Counselling at Work was initiated as a result of working as a coach and mentor in an organisational setting. As an executive coach, Angy understood the significance of underpinning learning to support the conversations that occurred in a confidential setting. Expanding her study further, Angy obtained a Masters degree in Psychodynamic Practice at Oxford University, during which time she practised as a therapist in an NHS setting as well as working with private patients.

Over the following years, Angy worked in both organisational and private settings as an accredited therapist. The main focus of her work has been in helping individuals develop inner resources to handle the pressures and stresses brought on by work, family dynamics and social pressures. Her particular interest is the work that enables individuals to communicate, relate and function in a complex world. Angy is accredited through the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

For 28 years I worked as an Executive Coach and Mentor in FTSE 100 and 250 companies, as well as the public sector.  Generally the work consisted of supporting individuals to develop themselves, but also to help them through difficulties with team relationships, career progression, personal issues and handling the stress and pressure inherent in the environment.
Over these years, I coached and counselled, as well as teaching coaching skills to leaders in many industries including banking, financial services, media, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing.
During that time I undertook training and skills development through education and qualification in Counselling and Therapy.
