The most important relationship that you will have in your lifetime is the one you have with yourself. Internal enlightenment helps us to understand why we feel the way we do and subsequently the way we interact/react in our relationships and our surroundings. Without such insight, we can experience displaced dissatisfaction, low mood, depression or anxiety. Talking it through in a safe space, unclouded from everyday distractions can unravel confusions, enhance clarity and help us to rediscover our inner strength, enhance fulfilment and personal peace in our lives.
"He who knows others is wise, he who knows himself is enlightened"
I offer my compassion, care and knowledge as i step into your shoes and walk by your side on your journey of discovery.
I am here to listen, offer challenge to certain ways of thinking and to help you explore the aspects of your life in the present or in the past that may be causing you dis-ease.
I offer face to face, Zoom and telephone sessions. I also offer single 90-minute sessions to explore a specific problem that is atypical.
My name is Angela and I hold a 2.1 Honours degree and a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling. I am fully insured and a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), which promotes confidential, ethical, and safe practice. I adhere to its Ethical Framework, particularly with regard to its requirements for Continued Professional Development and Supervision.
I work with adults, couples and children aged 11+. I have extensive experience working within the NHS as a Counsellor and working in Schools in Surrey.
Location: I am based at Smithbrook Kilns, Cranleigh GU6 8JJ, easily accessible from Guildford, Godalming and the surrounding villages. Please see the map for my exact address.
Counselling is normally most effective if we can meet on a weekly basis. However, I understand that this is not always possible due to life commitments and affordability. I offer appointments in the daytime and some evenings.
Please note that if you want to cancel an appointment I require 48 hours’ notice; otherwise you will still need to pay for any sessions missed. I accept payment in cash, by cheque or by bank transfer.
