Hi I'm Angela. Coming to counselling can feel like such a big step. There may be an obvious reason as to why you're feeling low, such as bereavement or a traumatic event. Equally you could be feeling sad and you don't really understand why. Perhaps you're struggling with anxiety or depression, or you're having panic attacks? Many people are struggling with their mental health for the first time due to COVID 19. Whatever you're going through I'd like to help you feel better. I'm trained in both Person Centred Counselling and Internal Family Systems Therapy ( IFS ). You can choose to work with either model or a combination of the two.

Relationships are at the core of what it means to be human. If your relationship with your partner or your family is not working , then this can affect so many parts of your life. Perhaps you feel that you have never been happy in the relationship that you are in? Perhaps you or your partner have had an affair or have issues with jealousy? Maybe you are considering splitting up or leaving? Being part of an extended family can present its own problems. Being a Step Parent or Step Child can be very problematic. Parenting issues can cause major rifts in families and sometimes an experienced third party can offer a solution.

You may be wondering how Psychotherapy will help you. However, research has found this to be true. Seated in a safe place with an understanding and informed Psychotherapist can be your first step towards healing and resolution. My approach to Psychotherapy is flexible, caring and compassionate with an aim towards a more understanding relationship with yourself and others. Also, you will never be viewed as a "problem to be fixed", but as a unique person with your own difficulties and obstacles to overcome.

Experienced psychotherapist specialising in suppoting clients with narcissistic abuse, challenging divorce, or relationship ending. Navigating your way through an ending can be painful and lonely. Being listened to and validated can be the first step towards healing. Working through the challenges that come with grief, loss and the confusion left from an abusive relationship can enable you to begin to recover and rebuild your self esteem. Healing often comes from focusing on our own needs and exploring our old patterns of relating so we can learn and adapt to healthier future relationships. Please feel able to reach out for support

My way of being in supporting you is relational at heart while being trauma aware, and is informed by my training in AEDP, Internal Family Systems and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
I am committed to supporting people in healing from relational trauma, developmental trauma, childhood trauma and interpersonal trauma of all kinds. Human beings are amazing, remarkable and resilient in our ability to cope with adversity. We often compartmentalise or dissociate what happens to us so we can carry on living. We also turn to all manner of addictions and behaviours that on the surface may seem disordered and destructive yet at the same time they make perfect sense. They protect us, help us to stay in control, help numb the pain, help us to survive, and help communicate our stories.

I am also trained in Internal Family Systems Therapy which recognises our hurt and protective parts and also the capacity we all have for healing and change.
Do you want to understand yourself, feel better about yourself, and experience change in your life? You may have experienced trauma, or feel puzzled about why you feel as you do because there doesn’t seem to be an obvious cause. Either way, there are good reasons for how you feel, which I can help you to explore. You might feel stuck in patterns and unsure how to break free of them. A lot of information which helps us unlock these patterns is held in our emotions, reactions, and actions, often those that we try to keep away from. With compassionate guidance, it is possible to access this information and experience change.

As an IFS therapist I encourage you to listen to your parts and with compassion and curiosity learn the reasons they do the things they do.
People seek counselling for aspects of life which are troubling them. It might be because of depression, anxiety, low mood, a lack of confidence or feeling overwhelmed. Perhaps you are wishing to recover from past traumas or you're feeling stuck. Seeking help is a positive and courageous step. Choosing a counsellor that you can trust and feel comfortable with is important. For this reason I offer a free, no obligation, 30 minute telephone consultation. My practice is based near the centre of Derby. I provide therapy for adults from 18 years upwards.

I draw on a number of different therapeutic approaches including: solution focused, emotionally focused, attachment focused, internal family systems and person centred.
I believe that relationships are really important. We encounter lots of different relationships over the course of our lives: friends, siblings, parents, bosses, co-workers…and then there’s the relationship we have with ourselves. Our unique life experiences inform our thoughts, feelings and behaviours; and sometimes we can get stuck in outdated patterns. Common mental health conditions such as: depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, and addiction, are often symptoms of the effects of adverse life experiences. Treating the underlying causes of whichever symptoms are affecting you can dramatically reduce their impact.

In my work I integrate a number of therapeutic approaches, including the groundbreaking IFS , tailored individually.
Are you feeling somewhat lost or stuck? Perhaps overwhelmed? And it seems hard to go on? Or past pain is bubbling too close to the surface, again? And you think life could be different, and you still have those dreams... In such times we all need compassionate and effective care from someone with wisdom, therapeutic experience and specialized training. I've been there and since I've been on a quest for ways that work at all levels of human experience, with lasting results for the whole person. I let my intellectual curiosity and intuition lead the way and it proved so worth it.

My wish for my clients is that they find the inner freedom to live the life that they want. I mostly work with expats, travelers, digital nomads, burners - I can relate to the lifestyle and can appreciate the need for flexibility and rescheduling sessions when necessary, however, anyone is welcome.

I believe in healing and I done it myself using the modality of IFS by Richard Schwartz and I am still healing discovering new hidden corners in my psychic. Being with childhood developmental trauma myself in a home, where my emotional needs were not taken care and I was neglected, I know very well how you might feel. I know also that it is important to put your intention in the universe or make a goal for your healing then for sure you will be able to succeed to accomplish it. It do not need to be difficult neither so time consuming. I will teach you how to use IFS and you will be able to heal in between sessions.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Preston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Preston specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
