About Counselling

 

My name is Angela and I am a qualified counsellor/supervisor and an accredited member of BACP. I work in a professional and ethical manner and encourage the promotion of self growth with my clients through a structured process. Counselling is basically an opportunity for you to share your feelings and experiences in confidence with a qualified professional you can trust. I mainly use the Person Centered model of therapy, however because everyone is different with a range of issues and experiences, I also like to use other techniques which can be effective in varying circumstances. 

Some people might find the first step towards seeing a counsellor a little daunting - particularly if you have never had therapy before, but given the increasing stresses and strains of modern life, more and more people are seeking the support of a counsellor to help them with their issues.

Fact: 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year (www.mentalhealth.org.uk)

Although this is quite an alarming realisation, it also suggests that you are not alone.

I offer relationship counselling for couples. Couples - regardless of sexual orientation - fundamentally need to nurture and aid the growth of their relationships in a positive and healthy manner, however like most things in life, these are skills that are not taught in school - it is learned along the way, sometimes through a difficult and destructive path. However counselling can offer a safe, structured discussion which can yield positive results - whether this is learning how to listen to each other or being more tolerant with each other - being proactive rather than reactive!

I am a qualified Counselling Supervisor. Supervision is vital for counsellors in practice to ensure that they are working ethically and safely and to a professional standard. I feel that I am able to offer cost effective and supportive supervision for both qualified and counsellors in training alike. Please get in touch if you would like further information.
