About me

Hi I’m Angela, thanks for looking at my profile.

Coming to counselling can feel like a big step. You may have an obvious reason as to why you feel so low, or equally you might just be feeling sad and not really understand why. It can be hard to see how you’ll ever feel happy or normal again.

Whatever has brought you to seek counselling I’d like to help you to feel better. I won’t judge, or tell you what I think you should be doing. Instead, I can help you to tune in to what feels right for you, so you can then work out for yourself how you feel, and any changes you would like to make.

I can offer you both Person Centred Counselling and also Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy. You can choose which model you prefer, or you can use a combination of the two.

IFS is a relatively new therapy which believes there's many different aspects to your personality. In understanding all these parts of yourself you'll gain self acceptance and healing. You'll also learn to access your own self energy.

I have counselling experience supporting clients struggling with a variety of issues including grief, depression, anxiety, self - harm, physical and sexual abuse, addiction, alcohol abuse, eating disorders, terminal illness, relationship difficulties and work related stress.

If you’d like some support, I’m offering face to face counselling from a therapy room in Clitheroe which is large enough for us to safe - distance. I also provide online and telephone counselling.

If you choose to contact me I would love to hear from you. I am happy to chat to you about how I work before you make any commitment. It's really important that you feel I am the right therapist for you before you decide. Thanks.

Member organisations

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.
