Counselling & Psychotherapy


Counselling

Counselling offers a Confidential Space to make sense of what is happening during the difficult times in our lives.  I am a BACP Registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist and I can help you.

Counselling can you help with all sorts of numerous issues such as:

Stress / Anxiety / Depression
Panic
Negative thinking
Feelings of finding it hard to cope
Fear, worry, shame, guilt, resentments, anger issues
Post Traumatic Stress / PTSD
Loss or Bereavement
Relationship Difficulties
Family problems
Work or career issues
Sleep problems / Exhaustion
Phobias /OCD
Feelings of stuckness  or at a crossroads
Low self-esteem or confidence
Chronic Pain Conditions
And much else…..

Are you feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or going through difficult feelings such as stress, worry, fear, guilt, or negative thoughts?  Perhaps you are finding it difficult to concentrate, or to focus any more.  Maybe you feel as though things or other people are getting you down.  Perhaps you are feeling numb, exhausted or as if you are not coping too well?

People go through difficult patches for a variety of reasons.  If you are reading this then perhaps this is your time to reach out and ask for some help.  I guess sometimes, we think we are the only ones who go through this but from my experience that isn’t true.  Perhaps at least as many as one in three people reach a point sometime in their lives where they could do with an Empathic, Supportive, Confidential, Non-judgmental Listening ear.  I can offer you that!

How Does Counselling Work?

I work as an ‘Integrative Counsellor’ which means that I incorporate techniques from various theoretical backgrounds, pulling out specific areas according your own particular needs, making the Counselling more personal to you.  Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing you pain, discontentment or unease….

Counselling provides a safe and confidential space for you to explore and express difficult feelings, rather than keeping them inside.  You might have found that difficult feelings or emotions when held in for long periods of time, sometimes lead to physical problems, such as aches & pains, back or neck tension, headaches, insomnia.

What is the Process?

Sometimes when you present your issues, it may be helpful to look back over some of your life areas or significant experiences, which are often interlinked in some way.  Developing insights may be the first step to healing.  It can be a great relief to share worry’s and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach positive, constructive and effective solutions.

How will Counselling make me feel?

Releasing unexpressed emotions or worry’s can help immensely, offering you renewed energy, clarity of mind, creativity and general improvement in your health and wellbeing.  During your counselling journey, you will explore and develop untapped strengths, support networks and coping skills.  Through this you will notice that you become clearer, more stress resilient, balanced, grounded and focused.  In fact, “Back in control and in the driving seat”!!

What can I offer you?

I offer both long and short term Counselling for Individuals.  An Initial Free 15-minute No-obligation Consultation will offer you the opportunity to explore whether we can work together, and to discuss questions you have about Counselling.

Some of Angie’s Clients Reviews

“Angie I just wanted to say thank you for all your help.  Being able to express all those difficult feelings and past issues, and then to learn how to look at present issues in a much more balanced way has helped me enormously.  Thank you.     (Wend A.  Stratford upon Avon)

“I found Angie last year when I was really struggling, after suffering with depression for over 10 years i decided enough was enough, Angie has helped me immeasurably. Her CBT techniques are great, she was empathetic when needed but also clear and strong in her advice. I am now equipped with tools to help me deal with life and all it might throw at me. I would recommend Angie Walker to anyone who is struggling, I feel sure she will help you find a way to break through to be who you know you can be” (Helen Kenilworth)

“I am 21 years old and decided to visit Angie shortly after I completed my A-levels. I achieved good grades but felt confused and unsure about what to do next. Angie helped me to explore my options and identify what it was I wanted to do and how i could get there. Through her sessions I realised my aspiration was to travel and work with underprivileged children in various communities. Throughout the coaching Angie was very easy to talk to and I feel my self-confidence has increased and I am more positive about my future.” (Fliss Warwick)

“Angie’s CBT and life coaching is really thorough and really works. She starts you off delving into what you really want – something I wasn’t too sure about until I’d been taken through my goal setting plan. She found out which areas of my life needed some changes and which could be safely left alone. Once started we spent several sessions planning out and refining approaches to make the sure changes that I wanted would actually happen and stay secure and permanent. Angie never criticises if you haven’t achieved all you set out to do since the last session – instead I was taught to celebrate all the small successes in line with my goals and aims. And what a success this less self critical approach has been! I’ve taken up new hobbies. I have a better more balance approach to work and a calmer more relaxed attitude to life generally. And what was most important to me was that I kept my driving force going on my career objectives. Thanks Angie for giving me a new zest to life!” (Richard Stratford Upon Avon)

“I’m a 28 year old professional who went to see Angie due to significant anxiety and confidence issues. Angie provided me with a whole new perspective on managing my stresses and in turn overcoming my symptoms, to the point where I feel my old self. I’m feeling so much more confident and in control and I know that even on bad days in the future I’m able to refer back to what I learnt with Angie” (28 Year Old Professional. Leamington Spa)

“I approached Angie to overcome my fears of feeling trapped on a plane. Angie was calm and very easy to talk to. This made me feel a settled and made me open up rather than be concerned what I was about to tell a complete stranger! Her techniques to talk through my problem in detail to diagnose and understand really helped her provide me with tools and techniques to get over an irrational fear. I would recommend Angie to anyone who has any fear or worry bottled inside. By opening up to Angie, I was able to overcome a phobia which literally gave me the sweats at night” (Darry. Stratford on Avon)
