Angela Pope Dip Psych, BSc Hons, UKCP-accredited, mBACP
I see clients in Weybridge, Surrey and Paddington, London W2. I provide a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space in which we can explore what is affecting your peace of mind. You may feel anxious, uncertain, demoralised, depressed, isolated, lonely, hurt, angry or overwhelmed by life.
Counselling provides the chance to be who you really are and to express genuine feelings, including those you prefer to hide from the outside world. The opportunity to be authentic can not only provide a sense of relief but may also lead to greater clarity, self awareness and personal growth.
I offer support and guidance on this therapeutic journey, working with you to alleviate your distress, uncover what affects your equilibrium and move towards realising your full potential.
By providing an objective but empathic listening ear, I can signpost potential distortions in your thinking and help you to identify recurring patterns and themes. I don't give advice but I support your decision-making process. If you're feeling powerless and struggling to make simple decisions, counselling can help you regain a sense of personal power.
I’m a transpersonal integrative psychotherapist. Transpersonal literally means beyond the personal. It allows for a spiritual perspective in the work. My integrative training allows me to use tools and practices from a variety of theoretical models. Psychotherapy comes from the Greek and means ‘to nurse the soul.’ In practice this means that in addition to counselling skills, I might use meditation, visualisation, drawing and dream analysis to help uncover your unconscious saboteurs and to help you gain clarity and insight into your situation.

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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
