About Dr Angela Mooney…

Dr Angela Mooney is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with many years of experience in treating anxiety, depression, relationship issues, health related difficulties and compulsive addiction. She specialises in psychodynamic therapy; a model of counselling which helps patients to understand the unconscious reasons underlying their difficult-to- resolve emotional issues or behaviours. Dr Mooney is also trained in and regularly uses CBT, motivational interviewing and relapse prevention.

Her past experience includes working with patients with terminal illness and health concerns, young people’s group therapy, and working with patients with severe and enduring mental health problems.

Dr Mooney pioneered a cutting edge treatment protocol in an NHS addictions service and continues to manage this program. The results of the therapy used within this program highlighted that over 90% of patients had reduced anxiety, depression and compulsive addiction by the end of their treatment. She has a sub- specialism in gambling addiction.
