About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling weighed down with anxiety and stress? 

Hi I'm Angela, and I specialise in working with women of all ages (18+) who are struggling in particular with anxiety, and/or low self-esteem, shame, depression, bereavement and loss. 

My desire is to offer you a counselling relationship where your voice is heard and understood.  I will listen carefully to you and the struggles you bring, so that together we can discover the unique 'you' in ‘your story’, and with that deeper understanding and awareness you can then make the positive changes that you need to in your life.  

Counselling qualification and Experience

I achieved a 1st class (BSc Hons) degree with the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham (Staffordshire University) in 2016 in Counselling and Psychotherapy.  I now have 10 years experience which began in 2014 as a trainee and volunteer where I worked in a variety of settings.

Since qualifying as a psychotherapist and counsellor in 2016 I continue to work as both a volunteer and for the last 3 years have overseen a small charitable counselling service as well as run my own private practice for 8 years.   I am a registered member of the bacp (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Practice description

I am now working with clients (in person) face to face.

What happens after you send me an email enquiry:

Following your email enquiry I will reply to you as soon as I am able to and arrange a mutually convenient brief telephone conversation to find out a little more about you and what you are needing from counselling at this time. If after this conversation you would like to proceed with an assessment meeting we can then arrange a date and time to do that (in person).

I believe it is really important that you find the right Counsellor for you, so in order to facilitate that, I offer a reduced fee for the initial assessment, (which is not a counselling session). As part of the assessment I will ask you a number of questions so that I can understand a little more about you and what brings you to counselling at this time.  Some questions include; your home address, date of birth, medical background, support agencies and networks, ways you self-care,  etc.  This time will also help me to assess if my experience and counselling training/approach will be of benefit to you, and importantly too, it is also an opportunity for you to decide if we can work well together or whether you prefer to look for another counsellor.

The assessment can take up to 50 mins and I charge £25 for this meeting.

I offer counselling sessions (initially) on a weekly basis; I find this is especially helpful at the beginning of our time together so that I can really get to know you.

I work on a short and longer term basis.

My first session

The First counselling session:

If after the assessment meeting you would like to go ahead and begin counselling with me we can then arrange a date/time that is mutually convenient.

At the start of the first counselling session I will explain the ‘counselling contract’ or what I prefer to call our ‘working agreement’; which outlines how we will work together and covers things like the boundaries of confidentiality, how and where I will securely store your information, what happens if you need to cancel a session.  

Each counselling session is 50 mins and ends within 1 hour.  

What following sessions may look like:

At the start of each session I may ask;  'how are you?' or 'how would you like to use your time today'?  Our work together is very much led by what you would like to bring; the more you bring the more we can work with.  However, as your counsellor I will endeavour to support you to express yourself as I listen really carefully to what you are saying. I will check in with you during our sessions to ask how you are managing with the pace of our work to ensure you are not feeling overwhelmed or rushed.

As your counsellor I will never tell you what you should do, but can help you to explore different viewpoints or options, and be alongside you as you try out different and new ways of re-thinking and being you in your world.
