About me

My name is Angie and if like me, you have found the last 18 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 18 months, but anything you're finding painful, confusing,  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-centred 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.

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.
