About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Maggie and I am a senior accredited BACP counsellor with over 25 years experience. I've had extensive experience of working in Primary Care, where short term counselling was available to a diverse range of adults between the age of 18 and 80. In my private practice I continue to see individual clients for both long and short term work.
I offer a warm, safe and quiet room in my home, which is situated within easy reach of Uttoxeter, Cheadle, Ashbourne and Leek. Parking is available.
I will listen carefully, empathically and respectfully to whatever it is that brings you to counselling at this time.
My aim is to be open and supportive, ready to help you navigate your way towards a more comfortable emotional way of being.
In the first instance we can arrange a free, informal half hour telephone, or zoom consultation.
This gives you the opportunity to meet me, see whether you feel comfortable, talk about any concerns you have and gain a sense of what to expect from counselling. It is also an opportunity for me to understand more about your needs and assess whether I am the right person to help you at this time. I may want to ask you questions in this first meeting, but I won't ask you to complete a formal assessment.
My first session
Following our initial meeting, if we agree to work together, we will draw up a short therapy contract during our first session. This contract will include information about confidentiality, times and dates, fees and cancellation policy. The sessions are 50 minutes long.
After our first session we will continue to work collaboratively at a pace that suits you. We will also review regularly, to check that you are getting what you need from your counselling.
