Tegan Edwards MBACP, Dip.Couns, Integrative Counsellor
I am a member of the BACP with over 10 years experience. I have worked in various settings including substance misuse, and mental health within the NHS. I'm a qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling and I'm certified in Counselling for Depression. I am committed to continuing my professional development. Experiencing a variety of environments has enabled me to work with a diverse group of individuals from different cultures and backgrounds.
Whether you're seeking support in exploring specific life experiences or you're in need of a space to understand yourself and any difficulties affecting you, I work within a range of therapeutic approaches to ensure a tailored experience focused on each individual's needs.
My intention is to provide you a warm, safe and comfortable environment where we can explore your reasons for entering into therapy. I will listen to you carefully and non-judgementally. Together we can engage in identifying your inner skills, allowing you to build on your emotional wellbeing and work towards a place where you feel you have processed your experience and more able to move forward with your life.
I am an ethical practitioner and adhere to BACP ethical guidelines which include attending regular clinical supervision.
My office is in a quiet road in Upminster, Essex. I provide a mixture of appointment times dependant on availability.
