About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to my space

Hi, I am Mags and I am a pluralistic, integrative counselling practitioner.

 My style of working is to provide you with a safe, personal space in which I can facilitate your therapeutic journey providing you with insights, tools, and challenges to enable you to work out your problems, fears, concerns, obstacles, and emotions, anxiety, and depression. 

 I aim to create a non-judgmental space by integrating person-centered therapy, existential therapy, compassion focussed therapy, CBT therapy, psychodynamic therapy and can integrate other forms of therapy into my work, including walk and talk outdoor therapies using local green spaces.

 I am a mature creative, counsellor with many years of community, educational, pastoral, and mentoring experience. Having worked in state and private sectors of education and community faith projects, I have also run my own business as an Interior designer.  I am interested in perinatal mental health and well-being and work with men and women individually who are experiencing reproductive issues, ie childlessness, miscarriage, infant loss, pregnancy, and postnatal problems. I also, work with women experiencing menopause and PCOS.I have a personal experience and interest in working with clients who are experiencing and living with facial palsy, glaucoma, and other life-altering conditions. 

I am a member of the Creative Counsellors organisation and I specifically find it beneficial working creatively with clients incorporating using Image, metaphors, stories, and art mediums in the counselling session. 

I have a 2:1 BSc (Hons) Counselling from the University of East London. I have undertaken specific training in miscarriage and infant loss, PTSD, and trauma, Counselling older adults, working creatively online, bereavement counselling and transpersonal art in therapy.




Practice description

All counselling sessions are 50 minutes in length and at a mutually agreed time via Zoom. ( In the room counselling will commence soon in the East London area)

My fees are £50 per hour for zoom appointments on weekdays and £70 for zoom sessions on weekend appointments.

I offer a few concessional rates on a case-by-case basis.

I offer zoom sessions presently and aim to work 'back in the room soon' within the East London area

Please let me know what you prefer.

My first session

I offer a 20-minute free assessment via zoom so that we can both see if we want to work with one another, as the relationship in therapy, I believe, is key to its success.

 Please contact me, Mags Lewis via email at msl.counselling@gmail.com or call me on 07745767920 and leave me a message. I aim to return your call or message within 48 hours.
