Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy
Whether experiencing anxiety, stress, loss, or just too many big life-events happening at once, we all benefit from talking to someone. Discussing our thoughts can help us to order them and put them into perspective so we feel less generally overwhelmed as a result.
However, we typically don’t feel we can approach those closest to us as we might not want to bother them, we may feel they will judge our feelings or we could cause them to worry, possibly even taking offence at what we say. In such times we need to talk to someone who isn't involved in our life circumstances and is there just for us.
This is your space to talk.
I aim to help you deal with your current issues by integrating the most appropriate therapeutic methods into your support (Integrative Support), to facilitate you re-shaping your life towards how you would like it, whilst finding the new and stronger version of yourself along the way.
FACE-TO-FACE, PHONE OR ONLINE SUPPORT
I offer traditional face-to-face/in-person appointments on Tuesdays in a comfortable, well ventilated (risk assessed) therapy room in Wokingham town centre, close to parking for ease of access if you are travelling by car. We are less than ten minutes walk from Wokingham station if you are arriving by train.
Alternatively, the Covid-19 lockdowns have shown us that telephone and online counselling sessions also work very well. No travel plus being in the comfort of your own home promotes relaxation and openness resulting in highly effective therapy.
“Our life is what our thoughts make it”
I OFFER THE FOLLOWING SERVICES:
Everyone grieves differently.
Bereavement is the loss of a loved one, a close relative or friend, or a child due to SIDS, stillbirth or miscarriage.
However, there are other kinds of loss too, for example the feelings of having been made redundant from work, losing a home or friendship...
There is no set timescale or exact process you should be following in your recovery, everyone deals with it differently.
Regardless of how long it has been since a bereavement or loss and you feel you would like to talk about how your experience is impacting you, please come and talk.
You may have many and varied thoughts going around in your head but:
you can't talk to friends in case they think you are being pessimistic,
your partner in case you worry them even more,
you want to protect your parents
certainly not your children....
Come and talk to me.
Share those thoughts.
Having a discussion with someone who is not going to judge you is cathartic, helping you rationalise and work through your thoughts, in turn alleviating some of the stress you are feeling, allowing you to focus more positively on your treatment and your future.
Relationships come in many forms:
each has it's own set of rules and protocols which can be difficult to negotiate at times.
This is your space to talk and work out what is right for you,
just simply to get things off your chest and straight in your head.
ANXIETY, STRESS AND DEPRESSION
If you would like help with any of these feeling or situations:
Anxiety - however it manifests for you
Depression - feeling on a downward spiral or no longer yourself
Stress - whatever the cause
Could be caused by any of the following - and many more:
Low self esteem
Struggling with weight loss
We can work through it together.
Angela Price BSc. Prof.Dip Psy C. MNCS (Accred) MBPsS MBACP
I have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology which included some practical experience in a hospital. After completing a masters degree my career path took me into the world of IT. Here, I found my niche in supporting highly stressed people in pressured environments. I was also involved in mentoring younger personnel, providing support for my peers and, on occasion, my customers. Ultimately, I realised that my interests lie in helping people emotionally.
So, I completed psychotherapeutic counsellor training, drawing together my psychology background and my much-practiced listening skills in order to help individual clients on a one-to-one basis. I loved my my corporate career but am very happy to be retired from it and now able to focus fully on my counselling practice.
Having the right counsellor is the most important part of therapy so I offer a 20 minutes free initial consultation by phone for you to gauge whether you feel we can work together.
I am fully insured, an accredited member of the National Counselling Society, a registered member of BACP, graduate member of the British Psychological Society, trained by and volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Support and accredited with the Foundation for Infant Loss.
