Maggie Jamieson, Psychotherapy & Counselling. MSc., BSc., UKCP Reg.
50 Westminster Bridge Road
Ludgate Hill Practice
89 Fleet Street
I offer a calm and safe space where you'll be listened to, taken seriously, and can talk freely about whatever is troubling you. I'm especially skilled in working with issues relating to life transitions, loss and bereavement.
I'll encourage you to pause, take some space and look, with interest and compassion, into your present difficulties; to be curious (not critical) about yourself and to reflect on your life and history. This gives you a broader perspective on who you are and what has shaped you in the present, as well as shedding light on the sources of any repetitive or unhelpful patterns of behaviour or thinking that may inhibit your life or relationships now. Increasing your self-awareness gives you a more integrated sense of yourself, greater equilibrium and more control over your path ahead.
Bereavement counsellor: I underwent further training and gained over 5 years experience as a Bereavement Counsellor in an NHS hospice. I'm particularly skilled and attuned to work in this field. My experience includes working with those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a sudden death, a suicide, the death of a child.
My experience as a psychotherapist and counsellor includes working with a wide range of other issues, some of which are:
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Panic attacks
- Relationship difficulties
- Divorce & separation
- Family difficulties
- Childhood issues/trauma
- Difficult memories
- Low self-esteem or lack of confidence
- Unresolved issues from the past
- Life transitions (ageing, retirement, divorce, redundancy, illness)
- Long term illness
- Work related issues
- Identity issues
- student concerns (e.g. exam stress, adapting to university life)
I see clients for both long-term and short term work. I work with psychotherapy/counselling trainees.
For further information about me please have a look round my website (link above).
Please contact me by email or phone if you have any queries or would like to arrange an initial session. As I may be with a client when you phone, do leave a voicemail and I'll call you back as soon as I can. I aim to answer all enquiries within 24 hours (Monday-Friday).
