Angela Dillon has Master’s level qualifications in psychology and has been practicing psychology for over 25 years. She possesses extensive psychological knowledge as well as a wealth of life experience to assist people in a variety of ways.
Angela has a warm, friendly, and relaxed style and she is passionate about helping others to achieve their aspirations. She is particularly keen to assist people in finding meaning and purpose. Her view is that everyone has the potential to make changes and transform their life.
In addition to many years in private practice, Angela has also worked with government, non-government, and national organisations, which, in addition to counselling and therapy, involved supervising, training, and developing psychologists. In addition, Angela has presented at the National Hoarding Conference and undertaken media interviews on both radio and television for her knowledge within the field.
Angela is guided by evidence-based practice and utilises a number of therapeutic approaches and philosophies. Bringing these together with care and compassion, Angela aims to achieve healing and enduring change for every client she meets. Empathy underpins her treatment, as does the view that the client is the centre of the process and the therapeutic relationship is also crucial. Therapy is not ‘set in concrete’ but modified and adapted over time based on client feedback and whether the strategies are helping or in need of some adjustment.
Angela’s initial training in humanistic approaches such as person-centred therapy (Rogerian Therapy) has provided a solid grounding in counselling from which she has expanded upon with:
Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Gottman Method Couples Therapy (L1)
Angela works with adults presenting for many different kinds of issues across the lifespan, including:

Work and life stress and burnout
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
