Maggie Smock - MSc Counselling Psychology, Cert. Supervision CPCAB, MBACP
I live in Davenham, near Northwich in Cheshire and I offer Counselling, Psychotherapy and Supervision.
My particular speciality is working with young people (11+)
I have worked closely with CAMHS in the past both taking on direct referrals from them and referring young people to their services.
I also work with adults and older adults, in particular through bereavement services.
Before becoming a Counsellor I worked extensively in Healthcare and Nursing.
Engaging in counselling sessions can be difficult and emotionally challenging but with the right therapist for you, it is possible to develop a trusting therapeutic relationship, where issues may be explored and strategies developed to promote meaningful, helpful changes.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MSc in Counselling Psychology from Keele University and a Level 6 Certificate in Supervision from CPCAB.
I have 6 years experience working with young people in both an agency setting and in schools, as well as 5 years experience working with bereavement support, both in a hospice and in client's homes. I have up to date safeguarding training and DBS clearance.
Although I am a Person Centred trained Counsellor I also have training and experience in CBT techniques and Solution Focussed Therapy as well as experience/ training working with young people on the autistic spectrum, EFT, Focussing, Loss and Bereavement, Drugs and Alcohol Addiction, Eating Disorders, Self Harm and Suicide Ideation, Anxiety and Depression.
