Angie Tulloch - Counsellor (MBACP Registered)
Hi, I’m Angie. I am a qualified registered Counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I am passionate about my job as a counsellor. I find working with young people and adults from different walks of life very rewarding. Each counselling session will focus on you as an individual and the issues you chose to talk about. The type of approach used will depend on what you bring to counselling. I find people work best when they feel comfortable with someone who does not judge them. Building a therapeutic relationship from the beginning is important and will enable you to be yourself. Counselling work best when the environment is one of honesty, hope, openness and respect. Counselling will empower you and support you in making decisions that are right for you.
My background is in the National Health Service (NHS) and the Local Authority with children, young people and adults. The route into counselling was a natural step which suits my personality as a warm and caring person. It has given me a better understanding of the varied issues people experience in life, and how trauma impacts on your wellbeing and self-confidence.
Some of the issues I have worked with includes:
- Coping skills
- Loss and bereavement
- Suicidal thoughts
- Trauma and abuse
- Domestic abuse
I have a particular interest in working with autistic individuals. I have, therefore, undertaken further training and development which has enabled me to offer counselling to autistic people, as well as those who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
As a member of the BACP I am required to work within a clear ethical framework and attend regular professional development training programmes. I also received monthly supervision from a qualified counsellor to ensure that the service I provide is meeting the standards.

I work in private practice with Sheffield Counselling Circle, a group of experienced therapists based at 673 Abbeydale Road, Sheffield, S7 2BE (no wheelchair access) and the rTMS Centre, 3 Skye Edge Avenue, Sheffield, S2 5FX (wheelchair access). I offer long and short-term counselling to clients experiencing a wide range of difficulties. My main approach is Person-Centred, but I also use an element of CBT, Psychodynamic and Solution Focused Practice where appropriate. We will discuss the model which may suit your issues, as no one model fits all.
My previous experience is as a volunteer counsellor with Cruse Bereavement Care with young people and adults. I was also part of a team of workers who facilitated a support group for bereaved children. I also worked as a school counsellor for Place2Be in a primary school. I currently work for a charity supporting people who have experienced trauma and abuse. I also help to facilitate a women's drop-in group.

My interest in children and young people on the Autistic Spectrum and those with ADHD developed from my work in residential care. The further training I have undertaken with Aspire Training Consultancy, has equipped me further to offer a more specialist therapeutic alternative to individuals who may not be comfortable with traditional approaches to counselling. I respect the rights of individuals who might not chose to receive a diagnosis but may seek some support in addressing the anxieties that this may bring.
I am DBS checked (Disclosure and Barring Service Record) and hold professional indemnity insurance.
