About

Hello my name is Angela McGrath. I started my own business Alternatives Therapy Ltd eight years ago providing Counselling, Life Coaching, Crystal Healing and Reiki to clients encouraging them to invest time in themselves and guiding them to make positive changes in their lives. It was a natural progression for me to also become a qualified Yoga Teacher, which I love.


My self discovery journey commenced in the late 1990’s when I was employed as a Clerical Officer thinking there must be more to life. My Line Manager gave me a training manual to look through encouraging me to choose any course I wanted. I chose Counselling and never looked back. I was trained as a Person Centred Counsellor, albeit I would now describe myself as an eclectic Counsellor, using whatever therapy best suits my clients needs, including Solution Focus Brief Therapy, Family Therapy (Multi-Systemic Therapy) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.  
My passion for alternative therapies grew in 2003 when I studied and qualified as a Reiki Healer. I have practiced Reiki in a variety of settings including distant healing, group healing and on a 1:1 basis. I love balancing people’s energies making them feel both relaxed and energised.


For years I suffered with migraine headaches and whilst I did not particularly like taking prescribed medication for them, it helped to relieve my pain at the time. Once again I had a belief that there had to be something more, which is when I discovered crystal healing. By strategically placing certain crystals in my hands and on my head, coupled with the use of Lavender Oil, I learnt to heal my migraines and am happy to announce I have not had the need to take prescribed medication for seventeen years. Naturally, I am delighted to offer this treatment to clients.


In 2013 I trained and qualified in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) as a Life coach. I am able to assist clients look at their current life position, ascertain where they would like to be and empower them to discover how to get there. 


More recently in 2019 I qualified as a Yoga Teacher combining both mind and body practices to assist students become more focused, flexible, strong and healthy. I teach slow flow and power yoga classes, albeit my most popular classes are Reiki-Yoga, two practices united to assist students on their journey to live amazing and fulfilling lives.
