Angela offers counselling for Adults, Adolescents and Children.
Angela is offering both face to face and the opportunity for online counselling for Adults and Adolescents. The online counselling would be preceded by an initial face to face session and clients must have access to reliable internet/data – an application such as Skype or Facebook Messenger could be utilised from laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
Angela utilises this modality with all clients and it is the primary modality that Angela utilises with children. All Sandplay sessions are conducted in person. Sandplay is a gentle, nurturing approach to counselling children who have experienced trauma, anxiety, bullying, grief and loss or just simply require a helping hand. Angela has a consultation with the parent/carer during the initial referral process to discuss any points of concern and is in regular contact with parents/carers as required throughout the consultation process. The Sandplay process usually consists of a minimum of six sessions spread over the course of eight weeks or as required; depending upon circumstances.
Angela Rock is a Counsellor and Sandplay Practitioner with nearly twenty years experience working with communities, families, youth and children in a variety of welfare roles.
Angela’s approach to working with her clients is strength-based and person-centred. Angela believes in the great potential within all of us to move through challenging times in our lives and to achieve the goals we set for ourselves. Angela also believes that you, the client, are the expert in your own life, and you choose the direction of the helping process.
Angela can also provide one- on-one facilitation of the Tuning In To Kids and the Tuning In To Teens program. Programs to assist with parenting, improving family communication and relationships, building emotional intelligence and learning how to use emotion coaching with your children and others.
Angela has found Sandplay to be a gentle, supportive, caring and fun way to work with children and adults. Children will unearth their own meaning from their experiences in a natural, playful way, without having to use language which may be misunderstood. Sandplay bypasses language and allows the Sandplay picture to tell what’s really going on for the child. The act of creating a Sandplay helps the child to have mastery of their outer world.
“Children will understand deep truths for themselves as they work in the sand. This is very transformative for the child.” (Garvan, M)
Angela has a background in the study of trauma and wellbeing, workshop facilitation, counselling and sandplay and brings a wealth of experience, enthusiasm and compassion to her work.
