About me

Start to feel better about yourself, your life, and your relationships, with solution-orientated Counselling and CBT.

Ask yourself ...

  • Is life getting you down?
  • Are you feeling stuck and unmotivated?
  • Constantly repeating the same life patterns?
  • Frustrated with self-sabotaging your good intentions?
  • Put others needs before your own and feel overwhelmed and fatigued?
  • Longing to feel good about yourself and your life but don't know how?

There’s no doubt that life can be challenging, especially when things happen out of your control or life isn't living up to your expectations.

It’s normal to want to reach out for extra support and objective guidance, and that’s where counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) can help.

Do you need help with:

Low Self-Esteem
Has your self-worth hit rock bottom, you automatically put yourself down and think you are not good enough? Awaken your inner hero/heroine and learn the art of self-value and acceptance.

Lack of Confidence
Stop holding yourself back through self-doubt, fear of failure and perfectionism. Radiate self-assurance, positivity and a ‘can do' attitude to say yes to life’s opportunities and design a good life.

Stress and Constant Worry
Don't let undue stress and pressure negatively impact your wellbeing, work or relationships. Small lifestyle adjustments can make a really big difference.

Anxiety
Is anxiety ruling your life and you are avoiding situations because of it? Take steps to control anxiety instead of it controlling you by changing your thoughts to change your life.

Depression and Feeling Sad
Feeling low, helpless and lost interest in life? Find hope again and become more optimistic and enthusiastic about your future.

Relationship Problems
Whether at home, socially or at work conflict and toxic relationships can increase stress and anxiety. Knowing how to relate and communicate better brings relationships together. 

At the end of our time working together, you will feel very different, and you'll go away with a whole toolkit of skills and insights that you'll know how to use at any moment to stress-less and have firm confidence in any situation.

How I Work.

Integrating the most effective helping techniques proven to improve specific problems, including psychotherapy, counselling skills, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy, in a solution-orientated approach.

This approach helps you to identify and overcome the challenges you’re facing, discover what you want instead, and we will co-create a lifestyle that enables your best hopes for yourself to emerge.

As soon as you book an appointment, we can get started.

“Angela is the most optimistic, calm and easy going person I know. I don’t recognise the person I used to be when I first started sessions compared to who I am now.” — Counselling client

“I didn’t realise how stressed I was until you highlighted it for me. I’m now talking to family and friends and getting the support I need.” — Counselling client

“I wasn’t realty sure what counselling was about but it has been really useful to talk in-depth about our relationship with a third party.” — Counselling client


“Angela really got me, she really understood me and where I was coming from. It helped a lot to talk about things and put everything in perspective.” — Counselling client

“Thank you for caring so much about our relationship.” — Counselling Client

“If it wasn’t for you I would have had a melt down by now. I don’t think I would have coped otherwise. Thank you for helping me get through it and being there for me.” — Counselling client

“You’ve really helped me get back on track. Thank you for your support.” — Counselling client


“I have to admit I was a little skeptical about coming for counselling but I soon realised that it wasn’t anything to be scared about. You helped me feel relaxed and it was much easier than I thought to talk about things.” — Counselling client

“I found the sessions really useful. They helped me to clear my head and get rid of a lot of stuff that was in there. I feel a lot calmer and happier.” — Counselling client

“I don’t think I could have managed without your support. I now understand what’s going on in my life and what’s causing me so much so stress. It’s made such a big difference becoming more aware and I’ve started to make small changes so that I can manage things better.” — Counselling client

“I was scared of making a wrong decision and talking to you helped me to think about things more calmly. I wouldn’t have coped as well as I did without your support. Thank you.” — Counselling client

“Since coming to see you I have become more calm and relaxed. My husband has even noticed! I’m starting to recognise when my thoughts become negative and I can now replace them with more helpful ones.” — Counselling client

“My partner asks what I talk about in these sessions but I don’t want them to know about it yet. It’s something just for me. I’ve never talked to anyone else in this depth before and it’s really helping. I’m back with my partner now and we’re working through things together.” — Counselling client

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
