About me and my therapy practice

 Hi and Welcome to Marble White Counselling.

Due to the Coronavirus and following Government Guidelines, I am working solely online at present. I am a qualified online counsellor and have many years experience of working online as a counsellor and supervisor.

I feel privileged to be able to offer support to others at this very difficult time. Counselling online has the benefits of accessing therapy in the comfort of your own home. There is no travel, no parking and clients have a range of different online mediums to choose from, so they can decide which one is best for them.

Counselling or supervision can be via Skype Webcam, WhatsApp Video Call or Telephone. Skype Webcam and WhatsApp Video Call are also very similar to face-to-face counselling.

I appreciate it can be difficult to make the change to online counselling, however my understanding is that once the first session has been experienced, it isn't as nerve racking as initially expected.

So, how about giving online counselling a try? There is no obligation to continue if after the first session, you feel online counselling is not for you. Give me a call on 07716 124 328 or email angelahughes40@hotmail.co.uk to see how I can help.

Please also see my profile below to find out how I work and what sorts of issues and areas I work with.

Practice description

I provide face to face counselling and supervision and work via Skype Webcam, WhatsApp Video Call and Telephone. Sessions are fifty minutes long for counselling. As well as working with Adults, Couples and Families, I am experienced in working with young people/children (from five years) as I have been employed as a school counsellor, a young persons' counsellor and a primary school teacher. Although my core approach is Humanistic, integrating Person-Centred counselling, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt Therapy depending on the needs of the client, I also work in a Solution-Focused way.

This means I offer a safe and confidential environment where I am empathic, non-judgemental and genuine. I will support you through your journey by being alongside you and listen attentively in order to understand and hear your experience.

Throughout our relationship (which I believe is key to successful therapy), you will learn more about yourself and be able to identify any obstacles that are preventing you from reaching your full potential. I will support you to draw upon your own coping strategies. This is hugely empowering and will enable you to find a way forward.

In addition to the 'talking therapy' (if requested by you) creative methods can be used such as art materials, puppets and stones. These stimuli make it easier to communicate deep issues, fears and worries. They provide a medium through which ideas and feelings can be expressed freely.

During our first session, I will offer you the opportunity to tell me what brings you to counselling, so we can both decide whether I am the right therapist for you.

Practice description

I provide counselling and supervision face to face via home visits in the Waterlooville and surrounding areas and online.  I also work from a centre in Cosham if clients prefer to have their face to face session in a clinic setting.  Online counselling is available via Skype Webcam, WhatsApp Video Call and Telephone. 

Sessions are fifty minutes long for counselling. As well as working with Adults, Couples and Families, I am experienced in working with young people/children (from five years) as I have been employed as a school counsellor, a young persons' counsellor and a primary school teacher.

About me and my therapy practice

My core therapeutic approach is Humanistic (Person-Centred, Gestalt & Transactional Analysis); however, I also work in a Solution Focused way too. I will model these values throughout the supervisory relationship and I offer a safe and confidential environment where I am empathic, non-judgmental and congruent. I will listen attentively and value you positively as a person. Although my core supervision style is Humanistic, my training has qualified me to supervise both individuals and groups from other orientations; therefore, I am able to translate theoretical language and concepts across models.

Transference and Counter-transference will be worked with and although primarily psychodynamic in its origin, parallel/unconscious processes are essential skills for supervisors of any theoretical approach. Avoidance or failure to identify these could be detrimental to the working alliance and supervision work (Raffles, 2012).

My commitment to any supervisee is at the heart of my work. I do not simply mean I will attend our scheduled sessions, I will be prepared to work for the health of our relationship, which includes addressing any difficulties and being open to any challenges a supervisee may bring.

My philosophy of counselling, which is mirrored in the supervisory relationship, echoes that of Rogers. I believe humans have an inborn ability to achieve their potential (actualising tendency) given the right conditions. I think people are genuinely ‘ok’ and ultimately trust the client/supervisee to know what is best for them.
