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 has a busy practice which includes relationship and one-on-one coaching and counselling (with or without hypnosis) as well as assisting parents with their pregnancies and births at numerous venues in Cape Town.
Our belief systems begin at 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 hypnotherapy, we can live happily and healthily in all areas of our lives.
As a doula, Angela’s function is to facilitate in changing the birth experience for both parents and baby into something magical. This can be pivotal in the baby starting life as feeling “good enough”. The bonding experiences of birthing can be life-long in determining who we are.
Angela also supports non-binary and trans-gender folk in the counselling and doula roles.
She consults in person as well as on-line nationally and internationally.
