Angela Risner Accredited Registered Member BACP MSc Psychodynamic Counselling
Are you suffering from anxiety or depression or something else?
I am a qualified BACP accredited Psychodynamic therapist and have worked in a wide variety of settings seeing clients for both short and long- term work.
There are many reasons why people seek therapy. Sometimes people wait many years with something that troubles them before seeking help.
I am here to help and I believe that therapy can improve whatever is troubling you.I can offer you the opportunity to discuss what you may not be able to share elsewhere in a safe confidential space with myself as an objective listener. This,in turn can help you to recognise what the real issues are and to gradually become more emotionally resilient, able to cope and make changes if desired.
Some of your troubles may come from historical problems and conflicts re-emerging.Increased self-awareness can give you the opportunity to move away from the resulting patterns and repetitions and to really be in charge of your life.
As well as dealing with the past, therapy provides the space to give some attention to your current relationships and how you wish to pursue your life. People are extremely varied in what they desire, what troubles them, and what makes them happier. Each therapy has to reflect the unique needs of each person. I believe that anyone can benefit from discussing what is meaningful to them and what they want from their life. I've worked with people from many different backgrounds ,and I'm sensitive to the wide variety of different cultural values and lifestyles of each client that I see.
I look forward to meeting you and I understand that it can be very hard to take the first step but you can be sure of a sincere and genuinely caring response in my practice.

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.
