Angela Hough-Maxwell

Muizenberg, Cape Town

Educational Psychologist

I am interested in the meaning of our lives and what makes us feel alive. I believe that therapy is a journey and a relationship. In the safety of this relationship we may bring light to abandoned and avoided parts of ourselves, and be held in the places of suffering and painful experiences; navigate transformations and celebrate our places of joy. This work is ongoing, humbling, enriching and an honour.
