During the 1980's Angela began working in the field of child & family mental health services in Peel and the GTA as a child and youth counselor. Angela provided clinical services as part of a multidisciplinary team of clinicians providing services to some of the most challenged children, youth and their families who were often struggling with issues of chronic poverty, family violence, sexual abuse and challenges related to ADHD . During the late 90's Angela shifted her focus to development in the business world where she became passionately involved with leadership and management development. Today Angela is a practitioner with Champagne & Associates where she provides a coaching based practice to clients in the Peel and Toronto communities. The most common reasons for referral during the past year have been: anxiety; home or workplace relationship crisis; midlife issues; adjustments to a separation or divorce.
During her monthly column, "The Fine Art of Relationship With Self and Others", Angela will respond to our reader's own questions. 'Dear Angela' questions can be sent anonymously to: firstname.lastname@example.org
