Maggie Edwards, PG Dip Counselling, MBACP
Hello I am Maggie and I would like to welcome you to my counselling practice.
We all face problems and periods of change in life which can have different meanings to each of us and how we deal with them. This can be expected and unexpected often with traumatic personal effect. Sometimes it can be difficult and overwhelming and we can get stuck unable to find a way forward. I can offer you a safe space and time for you to be listened to and truly be yourself. Working together to help you build a bridge to reach the other side so you can move on with your life.
Drawing from counselling practices, models and therapeutic tools I tailor my approach in therapy to meet your individual needs and preferences. Through our working partnership and identifying your strengths and skills I will encourage you to be an active partner in your own therapy. I invite you to join me to help you explore and work through issues which may be affecting you.
