The core of my work is to help you have less self-doubt, more self-belief and develop calm, clear confidence in yourself, your life and relationships.

Welcome to THRIVE, conveniently located in the town centre of Burton, next to the railway station. My practice rooms are situated in Equilibrium Chiropractors and Holistic Health Centre where we work together towards the betterment of our clients well-being. My mission is to help my clients accomplish their goals in a positive, compassionate, and empowering way.

I understand that many people have anxiety about talking to someone about their problems, so I have created a soothing environment and a scheduling system that never keeps you waiting long. 

I aim to help you get your life back on track and feel more in control whilst offering you necessary comprehensive care.

How I get the best results for you?

By integrating the most effective approaches that are proven to improve particular problems, including psychotherauputic counselling, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), solution-focused brief therapy, hypnotherapy and coaching know-how.

Every person is unique so no one approach fits all.



I'm Angela Terris a psychotherapeutic counsellor, creativity coach and trainer best known for my calm, understanding and solution-focused approach. I draw on my past experience in small business, training and mentoring to assist in my counselling practice.

I have always been interested in human nature and how the mind works, asking questions such as: What motivates us? What stops us from achieving what we really want to achieve? How do we go about doing things differently to get better results? 

Now it has led to a career in which I feel privileged in helping people overcome adversity to improve their happiness and wellbeing.

I have been featured in ‘Naked Money: 29 Artists and Creatives Share the Truth About Art and Money’ by Eli Trier.

I now live and work in Burton-on-Trent and have a long association with the area. Presently I am writing and illustrating a book on Mindfulness and creating a ‘Back to Confidence’ Program both to be realesed next year.
