Welcome, my name is Angie Petrie, I'm a counsellor who believes in a holistic approach and offers a growth model of counselling. I believe we all have what we need to change, sometimes we just need someone to listen to us until we find our change.

It's hard to read the label when you are in the jar

I have a diploma in Integrative Counselling and a Level 5 certificate in Creative counselling. I have completed the Counselling Tutor course in Online and Telephone Counselling I am a registered member of the ACC and have been working within the caring profession for 30 years.

I want to encourage you to think about your needs, you may be looking for a counsellor for a variety of different reasons and wondering which counsellor will suit you. It's my job to explore with you and exploring together we will find what you are looking for. You are unique, no one approach of counselling suits all.

Just like a sunset offers ever changing colours and hues you have changing needs and want someone who can be there with you throughout. As an integrative practitioner I am trained in multiple models of counselling to allow me to find the right way to work together and build a safe relationship.

With this in mind we will discuss your goals, past experiences and learning style, to work out how to best use the time available to us. I will be focusing in on your story and at first this may seem unusual, having time to share without concern for the other person.

I offer counselling in person or over zoom. I can discuss the benefits of each and we can decide together which one would best suit you. Each offers opportunities to explore using creativity.

It's creativity which can allow us to let go of some of our deepest fears, often, helping unravel new understanding and cement learning for future needs. Play and the ability to play enables imagination and effectively allows the brain to be flexible enough to find a plethora of possibilities in our life.
Appointments are available at a variety of times throughout the week, between 8am and 6pm.
I offer an initial half hour assessment which will be held either over zoom or telephone dependant on your choice, this enables you to see if we are compatible and explore a workable time to meet.
