Angela Barrows Black Therapist

Angela Barrows

"Take a burden off the mind." Allowing untold emotions, secrets or struggles to be aired gives rise to a new sense of being and a new way of living. If you are lost, broken, stressed, burnt out, struggling with life, allow me to support you to 'take a burden off the mind'.

I'm a psychotherapist with real life experience. I use my lived experience to inform my work with clients to help them to find their own answers to their emotional issues. After all everyone is the expert of their own experience.! My passion for supporting others is boundless. I create a safe, confidential, non judgemental space for clients to explore their own issues.

Angela Tulloch Black Therapist

Angie Tulloch

Hi, I’m Angie. I am a qualified registered Counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I am passionate about my job as a counsellor. I find working with young people and adults from different walks of life very rewarding. Each counselling session will focus on you as an individual and the issues you chose to talk about. The type of approach used will depend on what you bring to counselling. I find people work best when they feel comfortable with someone who does not judge them. Building a therapeutic relationship from the beginning is important and will enable you to be yourself. Counselling work best when the environment is one of honesty, hope, openness and respect. Counselling will empower you and support you in making decisions that are right for you.

My background is in the National Health Service (NHS) and the Local Authority with children, young people and adults. The route into counselling was a natural step which suits my personality as a warm and caring person. It has given me a better understanding of the varied issues people experience in life, and how trauma impacts on your well-being and self-confidence.

Some of the issues I have worked with includes:
- Anxiety
- Depression
- Self-esteem
- Self-confidence
- Coping skills
- Loss and bereavement
- Suicidal thoughts
- Trauma and abuse
- Domestic abuse

I have a particular interest in working with autistic individuals. I have, therefore, undertaken further training and development which has enabled me to offer counselling to autistic people, as well as those who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

As a member of the BACP I am required to work within a clear ethical framework and attend regular professional development training programmes. I also received monthly supervision from a qualified counsellor to ensure that the service I provide is meeting the standards.

Currently, my main areas of counselling are:
- Bereavement and Loss
- Autism/ADHD/
- Anxiety and Depression
- Christian Counselling

Training, qualifications and experience:

- Certificate in working with couples
- Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
- Level 3 Certificate in Solution Focused Practice

Delroy Hall Black Therapist

Delroy Hall

I am a counsellor with thirty years experience gained from the NHS, Higher Education, charities and private practice. I have been told I enable people to relax so they can talk about important matters of the heart.

I offer talking therapy, however, I also use writing as a means of helping people deal with unpleasant emotions. I am able to design and facilitate seminars and workshops for organisations.

In some cases, therapy can initially be hard work, but I remain amazed how providing a safe space for someone to talk, and be listened to, can have a significant effect on helping recovery while looking to the future with hope and confidence.
