Qualified as a counsellor and life coach at the South African College of Applied Psychology, Angela went on to study hypnotherapy through the National School of Therapeutic Hypnosis and then became a certified Mama Bamba doula. She now trains and mentors doulas in Cape Town, Johannesburg and on line .
She has a busy on line practice which includes relationship and one-on-one coaching and counselling (with or without hypnosis). She offers perinatal counselling to parents. This covers pregnancy and baby loss as well as postpartum mood disorders for both parents.,.
Our belief systems begin before birth and are set by the time we are 4 years old by our parents, teachers and life experiences. Thereafter they are continually compounded by how we choose to experience life. Through hypnotic regression work, we are able to shift the negative beliefs by neutralising the emotional charge behind them. These negative beliefs have often been established as being “not good enough” and manifest as low self esteem.
Angela believes that where the spirit is willing, the solution is always available through working with the unconscious mind which is the most under-utilized and under-estimated part of our beings. If we don’t deal with our emotions, they can manifest physically as illness. With regular attention to what we are feeling and by releasing the negative blocks through talk therapy or hypnotherapy, we can live happily and healthily in all areas of our lives.
As a Mama Bamba doula trainer, Angela’s function is to facilitate through teaching student doulas, positive change in the birth experience for both parents and baby. This can be pivotal in the baby starting life as feeling “good enough” through healthy attachment. The bonding experiences at birth have a life-long impact, in determining who we become.
Having recently gone through breast cancer treatment and surgery, she also consults with women who are struggling through this journey and need holding.
Angela also supports non-binary and trans-gender folk in the counselling and doula roles.
She consults online only, nationally and internationally.
