My name is Angie and if like me, you have found the last 9 months something you hadn't anticipated or prepared for, you may be feeling a little lost, overwhelmed anxious, sad, or lonely. Then I would like to help. I offer a safe and supportive space for you to express your feelings, not just about the last 9 months, but anything you're finding painful, depressing, difficult, or hard to reconcile.
I am a BACP practitioner with a specialism in addiction issues, including drugs, alcohol, relationships, gambling, food. . I see beyond the addiction, to the underlying feelings and trauma a person may feel. I work from a person-centered approach and can help you with issues around low mood, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, bereavement, grief, domestic violence, historic abuse, and sexuality.
I am passionate about working with women who struggle with self-identity, self-esteem, trauma, family issues, and relationships with parents, particularly adult children of those who have struggled with addiction.

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.
