    Angelica is an experienced Clinical Psychologist who specialises in Relationship Counselling in Sydney. Her specialities include treating people with marriage and relationship difficulties, intimacy and sexual issues.

    Angelica is also interested in helping people with low self-esteem, childhood trauma, and personality difficulties.

    As a wife and mother of two children, Angelica encourages self-acceptance and self-compassion towards a more meaningful and satisfying life. She uses a warm, professional, and committed approach to her clients.

    In addition to her 12 year’s experience in the public and private sectors, Angelica is a published researcher, has presented at many conferences, and supervised intern psychologists.

    Angelica’s couples are encouraged to use homework exercises she provides to actively engage with one another to increase the benefits of therapy work. She regularly suggests specific exercises, books, readings, games etc.

    Angelica is available for appointments relating to relationship and marriage counselling in Sydney, pre-marriage counselling, sexual difficulties, problematic pornography use, anger management, narcissism, and phone and skype appointments.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    Over 16 years

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. easy to connect to which facilitates the therapeutic relationship fundamental to good outcomes
    2. present approach providing authentic, deeper, richer connection
    3. additional training in relationship and couple therapy
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    It is the fact that I am always exchanging with my clients. I feel honoured to be at times the first person they opened up about a serious trauma or something they feel very ashamed of . I feel enlighten by their growth and how they teach me how to be a better human myself.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    A couple discovering that love can feel different, have specific individual meaning. There is great emotional maturity that comes from this understanding. Deeper emotional connection requires respect and appreciation both sources of comfort and security – all that humans wish for.
