Angie is amazing. She has really helped me voyage through my feelings this year and come out more conscious and present. She mixes up the sessions with different approaches which surface feelings and helps me to realise what’s happening for me. She has a warm friendly approach which makes me very comfortable and open. I highly recommended Angie’s support.
