Angela Morton Counselling Hypnotherapist
After a variety of careers, none of which seemed to inspire her for any length of time, Angela’s decision to change direction in her career happened when she underwent her own life coaching process. She realised that, finally, this was where her real passion lay. She wanted to facilitate in helping others, as she had been helped, to unravel their lives and make informed and empowered decisions for themselves. She understood that life is about taking conscious responsibility for ourselves and choosing a direction rather than floating along where life has blown us. So she left the corporate world and went back to school.
She studied at the South African College of Applied Psychology and graduated with a Diploma in Counselling and Communication (Coaching). Before going on to become a Counselling Hypnotherapist through the National School of Therapeutic Hypnosis, she also became an accredited Time to Think Coach. Fascinated by birth and women’s need for claiming their births as their own, she also qualified as a doula through Mama Bamba and now, in addition to attending births, trains and mentors other doulas.
Her therapy client base is made up of adults and adolescents. Her main tool is hypnosis which is a way of short circuiting the talk therapy and making faster progress towards the desired outcome. Most problems can be addressed through hypnosis.
Her therapy practice is based at the Foundations for Life holistic family centre in Plumstead where she sees a variety of clients in her capacity as a life coach, counsellor and hypnotherapist.
She has 2 adult children, a life partner and two cats – all of whom are her teachers!

Nicol Hoare B.SocSci Hons
Nicol has long enjoyed having long discussions with people about topics which matter to them and spending time developing her introspective awareness. As she grew older, the choice to study psychology seemed a natural extension of both of these and she dove into the world of mental health. She completed her Honours degree and has spent time volunteering as a counsellor, including volunteering with teens. She enjoys the excitement of developing relationships with the people she counsels and taking the journey with them as they unravel and develop their mental awareness and capacity.

Angela Boulle Workplace Coach and Mental Health Warrior
Angela’s working career began in law, banking and finance before deciding to start a family when she opted out of the structured corporate world to focus on her children. A few years later she was presented with an opportunity to join a cutting-edge future trend and people strategy consultancy. Having had a keen interest in human dynamics and corporate cultures, this work deepened her understanding of people and introduced her to the rewarding world of coaching, ultimately leading her to a coaching certification. Through this work, Angela coaches individuals and teams on various aspects of their professional and personal lives enabling them to achieve the shifts and changes they are looking for.
Angela’s exposure and interest in mental health has been through both her coaching practice as well as her lived experience of supporting people close to her who have mental illnesses. It has been through this that she has realised the enormity of challenges being faced in the mental health arena, particularly in schools and communities of young people. She believes that by creating more awareness amongst parents, teaching and coaching staff as well as of course children themselves from a young age, could help to reduce the staggering numbers of people developing and carrying anxiety and depression into their teenage and adult lives. She is a firm advocate of challenging the mental health stigma and is currently exploring avenues to develop or augment programmes in schools to tackle this.
Angela is married to Vince and is mum to Jase and Brad, three men who are her daily inspiration. Their cuddly felines, Harry and Meghan, complete the family!
