About“Each of us has lived through some devastation, some loneliness, some weather superstorm or spiritual superstorm. When we look at each other we must say, I understand. I understand how you feel because I have been there myself. We must support each other because each of us is more alike than we are unalike” - Maya Angelou
Meet Angela FoxPsychologist
The quality of our relationships has a significant impact on our happiness, longevity, physical health and even our financial status. If we feel disconnected and misunderstood or are struggling to cope emotionally with our lives, we can quickly feel despairing and alone. Some problems just seem to escalate or repeat themselves without being resolved. My great passion is bringing healing to people’s relationships with others and within themselves. I help my clients, who include children, teens, individuals, couples and families, to find greater emotional freedom, inner security and resilience, as well as helping them to build and maintain healthy relationships so that they can know themselves as peaceful and meaningfully connected with others.
I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual. I have been trained as a psychologist in a range of therapeutic frameworks including *Systemic Therapy, *Psychodynamic therapy and *Emotionally Focussed Therapy. Because I am so passionate about creating healthy, conscious relationships, I have undergone additional professional training in couple counselling: Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Emotionally Focussed Couple Therapy, Imago Couple Therapy, Encounter-Centred Couple Therapy as well as additional professional training in Parent and Family therapy.
I live in Cape Town with my husband and my children. My personal experience in my own relationships, my marriage, as a parent and as a past teacher and trainer, enriches my professional work.
