Counselling Carlisle

Hi, I'm Angela (She/her) I’m a compassionate, enthusiastic and trauma informed counsellor with 10 years of experience. I'm gender, sexuality and relationship diversity affirmative and I support the drop the disorder movement.

Over the course of my career I’ve provided several thousand hours of therapy to adolescents and adults experiencing a wide range of challenges and difficulties. Every session I provide is different as I respond to the unique wants and needs of each client.

My approach to therapy is integrative. This means that I draw from a variety of different therapy approaches. I believe that the therapeutic relationship can be a tool  for great change and that people can start to feel better when their stories are heard and their feelings validated. However, it is not a necessary requirement that you revisit traumatic and distressing events as part of your therapy. I will not judge, advise or tell you what to do and I respect that you are the expert in your life.

As a trainee Somatic Experiencing Practitioner I am able to incorporate elements of this approach into sessions. Somatic Experiencing differs from some other more traditional therapies as it offers a ‘body first’ approach to the difficult and sometimes physical effects of trauma. It is not about reclaiming memories or changing thoughts and beliefs about how you feel. It works with the ‘felt sense’ accessing physical sensations, imagery and motor patterns  to help re-regulate the nervous system.

Online therapy

I'm a certified cyber therapist with the Online Therapy Institute and I'm trained to offer sessions via video, voice, email and instant messenger. I select the most secure of platforms for my work and these include, Signal and Hushmail.

Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic

I am happy to offer remote sessions which keep both of us safe or I can offer face to face sessions in a Covid-safe environment.

Qualifications and registrations

I have a BSc in Psychology, Sociology and English and a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

I have undertaken continuing professional development in a variety of areas including trauma, working with young people, sand tray therapy, online therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, gender sexuality and relationship diversity, transactional analysis. and grief, loss and bereavement.

I am a member of the National Counselling Society at the level of  Accredited Professional.  I am also on their Children and Young Person Register.



I specialise in trauma, working with the survivors of abuse and violence and working with adolescents.  I am experienced in both long and short term therapy and have worked with some clients over a period of several years at the request of the client.
