About me

desert_beachAngela Cooper BAHons MSc DHC

I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist and BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor (Group and Individual) based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

I have been in practice since 1991 as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist, working to an integrative model. This means I draw from many different approaches, according to the client need. These include humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioural, Solution focus, Transactional Analysis and Psychodynamic. I have an MSc in Counselling Supervision and Training from Bristol University (1994) and am also UKRC Registered. In 2003 I qualified as a couple counsellor. For six years I was a BACP Accreditation Assessor, and have been a regular reviewer for them for over ten years specialising in law, ethics, supervision and social psychotherapy. In December 2008 I completed further training in CBT. Since 2007 my conference and review work has focussed on neuroscience, body work and intergenerational trauma.

I have regular monthly supervision, totalling a minimum of one and a half hours and ongoing personal therapy. In addition to private practice, I have worked for a wide number of organisations, agencies and companies both in a supervisory and in a counselling capacity.
