She is also a highly experienced training facilitator, conducting mental health workshops in high schools and for community groups. She is passionate about client-centred therapy and takes a holistic approach, assisting clients to not only alleviate their distress, but understand the cause and move towards creating a life that has purpose and meaning for them.

Angela believes that there is no ‘one size fits all’ method to therapy. Approaches are always adapted to meet the specific needs of the client.
Clinical experience and background
Angela completed her undergraduate degree with honours at the University of Western Australia, before completing a Graduate Diploma of Education (specialising in School Psychology) at the same university. She has worked with young people in regional, remote and metro schools and has found the issues that adolescents face to be similar, despite geographical location – leading to an extensive understanding of the difficulties and challenges associated with this period of life. Angela has also worked for a community based, not-for-profit organisation, specialising in depression and anxiety in youth.
