Welcome

Angela is a warm and insightful counsellor with over 22 years experience in private practice. A registered member of BACP, she is dedicated to finding ways of improving the lives of those of you coming to her seeking help.
She believes that counselling truly is your journey of a lifetime – your Magical Mystery Tour. You may come to counselling feeling cornered and restricted, seemingly strapped into a strait jacket. Maybe you feel as if you are living inside a glass bubble; you can see the world outside, but seem unable to communicate or feel the way you would like to about things outside it. It may seem as if your head is full of sticky black cobwebs, slowing you down.

Personal experiences with counselling.
During her 16 years in France Angela suffered much of the frustration, anxiety, loneliness and sadness experienced by many people living in a foreign country with a different culture, language, and way of doing things, away from children, family, friends and colleagues. She has undergone regular counselling in order to help maintain her energy and equilibrium.

Your journey.
If you are feeling any of those things, are struggling to make decisions, feeling haunted by your past, are undergoing relationship or control issues, grew up with a narcissistic parent, are enduring or recovering from coercive control or are  merely looking to enjoy a quality of life that seems to elude you, counselling can truly help. Yes, it can feel a terrifyingly risky first step. Yes, it can be painful - sometimes very painful, but there is laughter and humour too - and growth - oh yes, growth, along the way.

Given time, patience, and above all courage and trust in yourself, your counsellor and the partnership between you, you really can achieve that.

Testimonial example
"It's so helpful to have someone to talk to who listens and actually hears what I have to say. For the first time in my life I feel valued and valuable. Angela is able to provide the mirroring and validation that has been so sorely missing in my life up until now, allowing me to explore who I really am, and to have more confidence in my own thoughts and feelings. It's clear she cares. She has helped me come to recognise the dysfunctionality of the people around me and how they have shaped who and where I am today, and for that, I shall always be truly grateful."
