Hello, my name is Angharad and I’m a qualified Psychotherapeutic Humanistic Counsellor. I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds who bring many different experiences. As a Humanistic therapist however, I respect the idea that whatever your experiences, they are unique to you.
Life is challenging and regardless of who we are, life events can affect our ability to cope. I offer a non-judgemental, empathic space in which we can begin to explore your experiences together, at a pace that feels safe and in a way that feels most comfortable for you. Over time I believe that a gentle and compassionate exploration can lead to a re-framing of experiences and a greater level of understanding and self-awareness. This increased awareness can also shine a light on the extent to which your choices and behaviours may be rooted in past strategies which perhaps once served you but are now unhelpful. Such insights can bring a feeling of freedom around choices you may make going forward as well as promoting self-compassion. I believe that relationship is key and that with the right person, it is possible to bring about change. For my part, I feel that previous experience I have working as a lawyer can help focus the gentle but genuine curiosity I have in others. As I work alongside my clients, my hope is that this focus will help bring about in both of us, an insight which is honest and helpful. The time I spent working in a corporate environment has also given me some insight into the pressures that can arise out of working in an intense, professional environment which some may find helpful. My practice is allied with and welcoming of all genders and sexualities. I offer an initial 50 minute session at £35 with no obligation to continue if you don't feel we are a good fit. If we do work together beyond this, then my fees are £60 per session. I offer short-term, fixed-term and open-ended weekly sessions.
I have a postgraduate diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the University of Brighton. As part of my training I spent time at a private practice based in Brighton and Hove working alongside clients who brought a wide-range of issues. I also spent two years working at Cruse Bereavement Care where I supported clients with grief and loss.
