Welcome, my name is Angie Petrie
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.
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 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.

There are a number of instant options, I understand how hard it is to be on a waiting list or try to juggle the only counselling times available with a busy schedule. I can offer an exploratory session for you to explore what your ongoing need may be, or maybe you have a decision to make and would like a one off session.

I offer counselling in three ways face to face in-person or face to face on zoom or phone counselling. These are explained a bit further in the angel offerings section, 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. Using creativity, often, helps unravel new understanding and cement learning for future needs.
It's creativity which can allow us to let go of some of our deepest fears. 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 experience what this type of counselling would feel like and explore a workable regular time.
