Angie brings a wealth of experience to the practice specialising in a number of areas with clients from varying backgrounds.

Angie is BACP qualified and is from the person-centred school of counselling. With this she uses her own knowledge and life experience integrating techniques from the different groups she has worked with.

These skills and experience compliment the practice and allows for concurrent support work with the families of the victims, an area often overlooked by traditional therapies.

Angie uses her person-centred approach to invite clients to explore their feelings, beliefs and thoughts in a non-judgemental way. By allowing them the safe space to reflect on the path to self-awareness enables clients to discover how to move forward and take some control back of their lives.
